E500 4matic Wagon lowering module question

Forgive me if this question has been asked/answered many times before. Tried searching both via the forum as well as the old standby of google by site: with no luck either. Maybe my mistake is not asking the question in the right way.

I am looking over the Programa lowering module and for some reason the E500 is not listed as being supported, but pretty much every other version is. I emailed Programa last week, but have not gotten any response.

This one is what I am looking at.
Programa Lowering Module

Anyone with a S211 E500 4matic Wagon with the Airmatic Dual Control running a lowering module.

I live in Tucson, the land of speed bumps in every damn neighborhood so I can't do lowering links (plus I don't like the camber issues that cruising with a lowered car causes).

Before I plop down the $450 plus shipping I am hoping I can get a definitive answer from someone that has done it.

looks like it's the correct one

just got a response from Programa. This is the correct one for the e500, in case anyone else recently getting a s211 e500 was wondering the same thing.

Yes, the one is the 1st post is correct.

Once I replace the leaking reman Arnott strut, (~2yrs old based on the sticker), I'll actually get to try it out...

I am in the process of replacing CV shafts, all ball joints and tie rod parts just because I'm already in there and there is no reason not to. Upper ball joints were a little loose, but the rest are tight, though boots are not perfect, so better to do it sooner rather than later.

Actually not a bad car to work on overall. I had to build a CV shaft pulling tool, but that was pretty easy based on pics online. My ball joint removal tool worked a charm and I'm just waiting for new upper control arms (why they couldn't use a replaceable upper ball joint is kind of dumb, but I'm sure M-B engineers had their reasons.
