Adj. Ride Height and Sports Package

If I am right, you cannot get Adj Ride Height if you have the Sports Package, right? I always thought this was the case..

Mein Auto: X5 4.4
Ride Height and Sport ok in 03

I have a 03 4.4 with Ride Height and Sport suspension.
You can't get ride height in the 4.6

IIMHO, I don't think it's worth buying a new X5 for ride height. Maybe if your buying it brand new, but definitely not worth the extra hunt for it.

Ride Height lowers and raises it about 1.5 inches each way. But it goes back to factory height once after 30/60 seconds or after approximately 30 mph. It also can not be transitioned while you have a door open.

The Ride height also does not auto kneel when you bring the stop the engine like how Range Rovers do.

Adjustable Ride Height is a stand alone option for both the 3.0i and 4.4i regardless of what package you choose. It is not available in the 4.6is.

Yeah, that's what I figured as well, air bags aren't for me anyways

The option was $500 on an available X5, I'll tell them I dont want it and see what they'll do lol...
