little help please

Just want a little help on what my problem might be and how much it MAY cost.
just bought a 2000 s500 , loved the Designo interior and had to have it , after about a month I had the Airmatic , stop car is too low come up , I started to notice that the passenger side front sat very low when parked , when I started the car up it raised , when I would drive the " Airmatic stop car too low " would come on and off , there where times it would not come on at all , and times it would come on and off, but every time the car was parked it would get very low on the Passenger side front, and sometimes on the driver side, I was told that the pump was replaced last year , the other day I drove the car and the red airmatic car too low came on and DID NOT go off, the car was soo low that the tires hit the wheel well when turning , can anyone give me any ideas on what it could be and how much this may cost , I am about to take it to get fixed ,what is the best case and would would be the worst ????? and I read many different things it could be , shocks , struts , strut leaks, pump , bad valve blocks etc etc

From reading of others problems and using the W220 Encyclopedia..My guess would be:

Worst case.... Leaky strut has burned up the new pump trying to keep the system inflated.

Best case.. only one strut leaky.

A really good idea to solve the problematic airmatic system is >>

will probably save you $$$$ in the long run
