No problem, you've got a good grasp on it.
It is beyond just simply being low, you can be low without having a stanced car but not the other way around.
It's also necessary to have some relatively wide wheels. For instance, it's generally hard to stance a focus on anything narrower than an 8" wheel. In many cases, an 8" wheel wouldn't fit a focus all that well. Some guys run 9" wheels and even 10" wheels on a focus.
What qualifies the car as stanced? Generally that's up to opinion really.
I think I speak for many when I say that "clean" is the goal, when you have a car that someone who isn't into stance tell you they like your car then you know you're doing it right.
