If you recall my very pregnant, very short Asian wife found zero humor in having a suspension problem...

Of course at that time she had a bladder the size of a walnut.!!

If everything was removed... This would be the perfect time to install custom bent one piece stainless steel lines and arnott bags, etc. and end up with a true bulletproof suspension!!

Good luck coding this thing if you reinstalled the suspension

Most ppl got rid of it and went with coil over system

Good luck with reinstallation, if you need any bits cheap let me know as I'm about to pull my air ride system out.

What are the bilstein parts/numbers? My air ride has just screwed up again & I'm not stupid enough to piss more money away at trying to patch it AGAIN!!! Only to have it C$%k up AGAIN in another couple of months.

Looking at options... to keep this car on the road for a lousy 12 months, then getting an Alpina XD3.

Everything about the 4.8is is brilliant except the Air suspension, which is an unmitigated disaster

E28 alpine! *drool*

Sorry... Nothing to contribute. Have to replace my front bags soon as I enjoy my air suspension.

I love the air suspension when it works, unfortunately I'm now about 6k in on sorting out air suspension & camber wear issues on rear tyres etc & the air has been continuously playing up for 12 months now. Plus I've read far too many stories of people committing double what I've spent & still having issues....

The car is simply not worth tipping in more money on air suspension with no guarantee of a permanent fix. just not worth it on a car that's now valued at less than 8% of its new price.

So I'm going to H&R springs & B6 Billies, which has worked really well on my 635csi.
