I say keep it slammed, unless it's not your style (LOL). Later.

The airmatic pump goes bad all the time. it is located under the right front of the bumper. there is a large 40 amp fuse located in the fusebox near the right side of the firewall. replace the fuse, relay and pump. the front shocks also have problems with the tops of them leaking, but since the whole car is slammed start with the pump...
pump is roughly $250 or so...let me know if you need any other help

Might be a better question to ask on the W220 forum.
