    So i fitted the new Arnott rear bags on my W211 E55 AMG this weekend as they were both leaking at the chamber pretty badly. One side was so bad it was sitting on the wheel when i get back to it every few hours. They were also quite rotten and battered. They looked like a broken accordion when i pulled them out.

    The leaking is now resolved and the car is not dropping, but I now have another problem.

    The cars ride height is different on every corner. We plugged it in with my mates Bosch KTS 200 and could see that from the readings it was getting and also the fact it is very obvious.

    It looked as if their was a setting for 'Level 2.0' but it wouldnt let us in there it was coming up with an error. Not sure if that was where we needed to go to adjust it or not or if we need the Mercedes STAR system.

    Anyone know if you can do it through the KTS 200 or the SnapON or only STAR?

    Anyone in SE Kent/London area that could give me a hand.

    I think you will need the STAR system to set this.

    It needs calibration on a Star.

    Take a slow drive down to MBS Southampton. They can recalibrate your level sensors.
