Driving in the up position

Over on the S forum one poster said his car passed over a ladder that had fallen in this lane. It did some minor damage.

My question is how many of you drive your car in the elevated position. I do so with the SL but not with the S.

IMO it looks and rides better down. In deep snow or rough terrain I go up. Some people actually pay a lot of money to lower their rides.

Don't believe everything you think

The ML is always in the raised suspension setting.
