I did not know that, thanks. Wont links ruin the airbags over time? What does the dealer do when you roll in the shop with a lowered car, in the past I knew the manager of my local BMW shop so I had no issues.

Thanks,
Dan

What's your VIN (PM if you prefer)?. The CLS had both steel springs and airmatic depending on the vehicle. Lowering may be possible with SDS.

so I can raise the front of my car and I actually see the bags so, I believe its all around for me. Where are you located? I dont know anyone with SDS in my area, I was told that you need to keep updating or doing it over as the car reverts, so ELM or links are the way to go.

Yep in Australia, so I can't do it for you. If it is done right with SDS it will stay where it is set.

Hi I lowered mine, once you change the front springs the back will automatically come down because of the self leveling. I used H&R springs and you won't find anything lower than 25mm I didn't think it was going to be low enough but it's just right. I like my cars low and I'm pretty happy with how it sits, if you want to go lower then coilovers. I can send you a pic of mine if you want.

Thanks but not sure that will work for me as I have air suspension in the front too?
If you could send pics, I would greatly appreciate so I know what 25mm look like!
thanks man
