Unless you like repairing the front bumper cover over and over again, it makes sense not to drop the front suspension too much.
Your car has a decent stance that looks not really dropped at all.
It looks very much like my car's setup and I can fix the height by the ADS ride height sensors to whatever I like. My car CAN be set lower for whatever reason (looks, performance, etc.) and get away with a TOO low stance because all I have to do is press a button and the body will rise about an inch and a half with ADS.
For low profile tires, aesthetically, the sidewall of the tire should be about the same thickness as the exposed fender lip gap.
Looks good, don't go too low.
