They'll usually settle another 1/2 inch or so in the next few days to a week.
I have a mate with an AU, and he has Ultra's in his, but it doesn't look anywhere near as dumped as any of the E Series cars, or BA's. But he has no ground clearance underneath.
Have a look for writing on the spring, and if it has SSL....... then they're ultra's, if its only SL....... then they're Superlows.

Still looks nice though!

From your pics i'd say not, how long have they been on?? They do take a few days to settle.

Looks sweet on them rims!

Which brand are the springs..??
Kings, Pedders.....others..??

See if you can find another AU sedan with the
same brand you have and the Ultra ride height,
then compare.
Also, check the actual part numbers against the
catalogue.

A friend of mine has a conspiracy theory that springs aren't as low as they used to be :P
Sturmovik has posted the solution.

Whether or not the springs actually are 'Ultrlows', that is not ultralow, looks like XR/low/pansy height too me.

chuck the standard 17"s back on and have a look then. My EL looks a bit lower than that on ultralows with 18"s, but when the 16"s were on it was heaps lower.

check the rolling diameter of your 19"s against the standard set.

should be even sweeter minimising the wheel arch gap once you have the ultra lows installed.. Are they just swapping the ultra lows into your car and keeping the super lows?
