obd-2 Lowering module Amazon

I don't don't know this module modifies the ride height. Previous ELM's or links spoofed the system it is at stock height. I don't know if this one simply modifies the values. If so, it would be recorded/logged.

That said, it's a question of taste. I think -32mm F/R would look great on your car
Yeah, I made such low option only for photos, drive option -32

Since these module dont work on MBC, is lowering links the only other option?

Just curious where that info is coming from?
Traditionally, ELM’s have been working with both suspension types ABC/Airmatic.
I know the Renntech OBD module works on either.

I have contacted a couple of vendors even the seller of this amazon module and so far everyone has said only 4matic. I havent check renntech because they charge too much mercedes tax. If anyone with MBC using lowering modules please send me a recommendation. Thanks

MBC is pretty much ABC with a camera.

Camera scans the road and adjust the suspension to cushion the impact.

These modules are VIN locked and they do work great unless you slam your car. You may buy them from Amazon or from the http://loweringmodule.com site @ $450.00, they will ask for your VIN to make sure your model is covered.
