I wouldn't say it was Chavy, well unless you were bouncing up n down at traffic lights thinking you were a Jay-Z.

It would be ideal for shows to get it looking perfect then heighten it if you came up against any obstacles.
I wonder how the ride comfort differs between air and conventional spring?
How would it cope with corners? Is it completley for show?
But your right must of cost him a pretty penny.

I agree with what your saying bud

Id like to think it was for show purposes only as i for one wouldnt want to track that car with those air bags for suspension


PS Just before any one pipes up and says articulated vehicles use a similar system i know they do .........

Not helped by the fact the owner looks like a bit of a tool, but I'm really coming round the idea of air suspension.

More and more premium brands are switching to air as OEM equipment. Air suspension is fitted to a lot of the bigger AMGs, if its good enough for them its good enough for me!

Haha! The interior was hideous huh, no cow deserved to die for that!

Hmmm, if the likes of AMG are using this technology it must be able to handle corners pretty dam well.

Good luck Karl if you decide to go down that route......hell...you'd probably even be allowed to post it in the UNIQUE section!!!
haha.

Good find Rowe but page has expired
that mk2 looks faultless tho!
