I had 4 malfunctions when my EIS was bad:
bas, esp, airmatic, stop light, abs(abs light used to come on but wouldnt read as a malfunction).
All were cleared when the EIS was replaced.
I hope this helps.

I was told by a dealer that I need to replace the ESP Switch. Any idea how much that will cost for my model.

Other than that, the car is great.
If you're getting an airmatic malfunction, I'd have it checked out by the dealer. If your car drops it can damage the struts and that is an expensive repair. My car was seriously lower at all four corners about five years ago, and they told me to drive carefully to the dealer. I didn't get the malfunction but ended up paying about $900 for a new air pump.

Don't believe everything you think

Im beginning to think that I am either being 1) treated like I will believe anything or 2) they don't really have any expertise in Mercedes like they claim.
I'm no expert, but I don't think the airmatic is related to the other thing.

I am going to replace the EIS unit and see where it takes me. I hope the air pump is not going bad. Was there any noise or any other sign that the air pump was bad?? Did you have any idea that the car was lower at the corners aside from the smoothness of the ride.

No noise. No warning. I came out one morning and there it was, sitting several inches lower than usual... I dorve it very carefully to a breakfast meeting and then straight to the dealer in K.C.

In my case it was the EIS unit.
