I will post a write up later, but for now, for those interested. I have successfully removed the air suspension and replaced with OEM Shocks/Struts/Springs. X5 sits about the same height as the middle setting on the air ride and rides about the same. Maybe a tad stiffer... Next step is to get the air ride removed from the computer, so the error goes away on the dash.[/QUOTE]
Hi I'd be interested in reading the write up with any pics as well would be of great help, I was thinking of removing the air ride on my 2001 4.4 as it has just thrown up a sensor fault but that could just be the start of things.
Everything I've read on the net about the air ride is that when it starts to go it can cost the amount to buy another car. Would you be able to recode or disable the computer with a BMW 1.4 scanner
