The suspension geometry is not maintained beyond -15mm, the R230 is a tire eater as is (due to high torque and staggered setup)

Going any lower than -15mm is a bad idea, you wheels and front bumper will also thank you.... as well as your pelvis, as the lower the car sits, the harsher the ride is...

All of the settings you're looking for are under the ABC module settings...
Hi bayhas I know that !!! ,but those damn Rommes has to be correct numbers for each strut with comas !!! I just need to know correct # on all 4 wheels cuz I can lower it as much as I want , but I can't memorized because I don't have correct Rommes is that make sens?

Post #14 on this link may help. It suggests it is possible to view the current romess settings on a different screen, and then just re-enter them.

I added a file of step by step instruction for SDS tweaks to post #4 this thread. See if that helps.

Not sure. These are NOT my words, but those of another using the SDS while working on a W211. May, or may not, work for the R230.
I have adjustable linkages on my car, so I never needed this adjustment via SDS.

Awesome post Kbob999, Very handy, I tried shutting my seat belt warning off, but it didn't stick for some odd reason. 1st time I thought I did something wrong, than weeks after noticed, it didn't hold, so tried again, a few weeks later noticed it didn't stick again.
I don't take her out much and now that its getting cold here she is in storage.

ADRIAN126sec, when you find some settings that work for lowering the suspension, can you post the romess values and any other pertinent settings you used?

I just want to make sure we help the next person who attempts this by getting some known good configuration info into the record. Pay it forward.

Will do for sure I've benn struggling with this one fore a while and I know is possible to do it MB dealer charges $400 or 600 for that and don't feel like want to pay for something that could be done by myself especially when I have my C4 !
