First of all, do some (semi) scientific measurements.
Park the car on reasonably LEVEL ground somewhere. You're in the Glasgow area, not up in the Highlands, so there must be a bit of level ground somewhere nearby. Borrow a 6 ft spirit level if you have to.
Then do some measurements VERTICALLY (the spirit level comes in handy here again). I would suggest using the centre of the hub cap as a reference point and measure up a vertical line from there to the bottom of the wheel arch.
Compare both sides and see if you have a real difference.
Try doing this after a reasonably long drive (20 to 30 miles should do) so the compressor has time to pump up the springs if needs be, then leave the car overnight and check again.
And yes, to get the level sensors calibrated you need to go to an MB stealership or someone down a sidestreet with a copy of the STAR package. They shouldn't charge you more than 30 to 45 minutes labour time, however, as it's really just a plug-in, calibrate, plug-out job. Mind you, knowing MB stealerships they'll probably try and tell you that you need genuine MB air in your tyres or something....
How is Sconny Botland these days anyway? Lived in Aberdeen area for about 13 years all in (Peterculter 1990-2000, Banchory 2009, Stonehaven 2010-11). I don't miss the cold and wet at all and Aberdeen is a right dump compared to what it was at the eight of the oil boom in the early to mid 90s, that's for sure. What I DO miss are all those lovely twisty highland roads (in the summer) and my Ducati 916 and Lotus Elise to go play on them.
