The problem with lowering this car is that you risk damage to the air struts as you are basically fooling the system into thinking the car is higher than it really is. You can do lots of very expensive damage to your suspension with a few hard hits of a pothole or bump. Ride quality will also likely suffer. It's not a honda civic, it is going to look odd to be slammed to the ground, and not in a good way.

My friend recently purchased that for his 2018 E63S Sedan, the car does not become "slammed to the ground like a Honda Civic" like some people say..it merely lowers the car 32mm or 1.25", the car rides just as well as before and even handles a little nicer, on his stock wheels it is a very clean look after getting rid of some of the wheel gap. You simply use the COMAND display and rotary dial to control how low you want the car, you can customize it to your taste up to 32mm (which is plenty for these big boats) I will be purchasing the module for my 2014 S550 4MATIC soon as well.

I am using a similar module (not Amazon but same setup) on our 2018 E63s. Renntech also makes these on the newer Airmatics via ODBII. They work well but don't raise at speed like previous modules, so an alignment is advised...

Damn that looks sexy. I believe the roads in your city are nice and smooth. IMO, the OEM height is not too bad at all.

Does anyone know if it’s VIN locked, like Renntech?

Please don't do this! Yes , it might look good and cool and all, but you are going to mess up a perfectly good car.

No one is questioning the look, the question is it bad for the car's suspension?

I can not say for sure, but I have no problems yet.
the only thought that the pressure in the suspension more and feel stiffness on uneven roads

Aren't the Amazon modules made by the same guys as the Ebay module (located somewhere in eastern Europe)? If so, they would not be VIN locked. I only know of the Renntech module being VIN locked.

I use a similar module and really like. But if you ride that low, you will stress the struts and they can blow out when hitting a pothole as the air pressure is higher with less travel in the air chamber.
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
