My car seems to be showing its mileage a little over the bumps. There are no knocks or bangs but it seems to have lost its composure on the road crashing over bumps. Worst is if I hit a pothole mid bend it sends a shudder through the car and knocks it off line. Last MOT showed no advisories only 3k miles ago. Any ideas on what I should start replacing first? Thanks

Is it true that the estates have self levelling rear suspension?

Not a standard offering, it was an option. I had it on mine, it was the same setup as the W210 used (spheres were the same part number). The hydro-pneumatic struts were different (I don't think they were used by any other model).

There were very few produced with self-levelling suspension. I ordered it because I towed a caravan, and as I had it on my previous 3 E-class estates, I thought that I might miss it. I think it was about an extra £700.
