    Touring SLS failure

    Hi everyone, One of my air bags has just popped and the car is sitting on its arse. I can hear it hissing as its trying to pump it up. What I need to know is, can I drive it like this or will it damage things. Presumably its sitting on the bump stops which are meant for occasional use. Would it sit at 50 on the motorway OK. Got to get back to London this evening. 70mile drive. Thoughts/ experience appreciated please. I'll probably delete the SLS after this.
  2. Hi, I'm a fairly new owner of an M5 and have found that one of the rear SLS shocks has a slight leak. I believe the shocks are no longer available? If so, what are my options here? I have read that others have capped off the SLS and going with normal shocks? If this my best option, anyone recommend any particular shocks? I've been in two minds about leaving the car OEM ride height, or lowering it ever so slightly anyway... so this could end up making my mind up for me. Cheers, Luke
  3. Hi, My 525i wagon is bouncing around a fair bit at the moment, I think its gradually got worse but I should probably do something about it soon. The rear rises when load is put in fine and is definitely not rock hard, fluid levels are good, but when driving along (can be a straight road) and it hits a slight bump it seems to bounce up and down a good few times. This is even worse on bad roads when it just bounces around alot. Using my bad powers of deduction and a little internet it sounds like it may be the spheres / pressure accumulators that have gone. Is there a way to check this? Any ideas on where the best place to get them from is? - they seem pricey The other option would be to delete the SLS, but I quite like the feature really. Cheers!
