    My first post!
    My car bottoms out quite easilly when driving on A roads. Speed bumps require glacial speeds to negotiate. I've just changed the front springs, fitting OE items from an official dealership, which has helped, but I suspect that the Monroe dampers that are fitted may not be correct for my particular model. Any suggestions please? Or is this typical ? It's a 3.0L diesel, with 18" AMG alloys with 235 40s.

    If the dampers are original they will be shot, a new set will make a vast difference. An avantgarde model will tend to contact the road anyway sometimes due to being lower.

    Thanks, the dampers were fitted a month ago when I picked the car up from a trader. I think they are a "one size fits all" aftermarket job. I assume that the diesel and autobox make this the heaviest E-Class and so maybe a bit much for the dampers.
