7 Series - G11 / G12 (2016 - current)
The next generation G11/G12 BMW 7 Series flagship forum. Unveiled June 10th, with production starting in August the 6th generation 7 Series comes in a light weight package with extensive use of BMW i carbon fiber technology. The interior quality raises the bar with a touch screen and gesture controlled infotainment system. Exterior styling has been a sticking point with mixed reviews so far.

Keeping 750 Low

Hi,

Is there a way to keep the 7 in the lower mode when selected? I've been lowering it through the button on the center console but when I turn it off it rise again!

I've got a 2016 740. It only has a momentary button for the ride height which raises the car rather than lowering it and then the car returns itself to "normal" driving height once you hit a certain speed. How are you lowering yours? Different controls on the 750?

If you want the car to always be lowered, you'll need it to always be in sport mode. However, I don't think there is any way to code the car to always be in sport mode, though you would probably want to keep it in comfort mode after a cold start as it'll warm up faster.

The car can be raised by 20mm up to a speed of 25MPH. The car can also be lowered by 10mm by selecting sport mode.

Simple enough, Thanks!

I suppose if you set Eco Individual's suspension setting to Sport it would lower 10mm also?

In addition is there a chart for this? For instance I'm curious what is changed from Comort to Comfort Plus as there is no Comfort Individual to look through the defaults.

Take a look at the Chassis and Suspension training document here:
