Self levelling suspension.

HI I am new to your forum but I have a 2001 V8 X5 and my self levelling suspension warning has come on. The ride is now very bumpy and its sitting very low at the back. I have heard a hissing noise from the back wheel area the last few days. Do you recommend taking it to a suspension place or back to BMW?

Sounds to me as if you have a hose leak if your not a DIYer take it to tyre/suspension place, BMW will be very expensive.


I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!
