Very common for E46's to sit uneven slightly, if it's a big diffirence another common fault and cause is a rear coil spring snaping.

Usually a small piece from the top of the spring cracks off, so check there first. :thumbsup Super simple job replacing rear springs too.

Thanks for the advice I'm going to have a look tomorrow if it is the coil spring is it simple enough for me to do on my own and would I need any special tools for the job?
Rear springs simple as can be!

Take the wheel off, support the car properly (axle stand etc) undo the bottom shock absorber bolt (18mm).
Push the hub/brake disk assembly down with one hand and pull out the spring with the other. Reverse the procedure job done!
