    I had the car lowered with STAR, but still wasnt happy with the ride height, i didnt really want to go the links route, so i opted to go with the Renntech v2 lowering module with Remote.

    Installation took just over an hour, mainly pulling a few plugs apart and replacing 8 pins in the plugs with ones from the lowering module and the original pins to a new plug which fitted the module, after that all the factory controls still work as usual and you can even turn the module off for workshop visits, You can lower up to 2" using the module and can be done on the fly, here are the results

    Here she is with 1.2 rear and 0.6 front, this is what will be my daily ride height.

    I would love the bodykit and wheels on mine :)


    I'm happy with my engine though :)


    I like that, it should be programed to automatically drop at lights to look mean and menacing.

    Ahh, but the 55K is a totally different beast, but i guess it fits the purpose for what you use the car for! :) Its a shame but you cant set speed for the w211, other cars you can.

    hey fella, yep no probs driving that low, can even do a full lock with no rubbing, might botom out with the condition of the roads, and the great thing is i can go to factory height for when the missus drives it ;)

    cheers mate, we have to catchup soon, when u down south next?

    thanks, yes im very happy with the height now
