Suspension tuning

General notes

The electronically controlled damping system works continuously. This improves driving safety and ride comfort.

The damping is tuned individually to each wheel and depends on:

 - your driving style, e.g. sporty
 - the road surface condition, e.g. bumps
 - your individual selection, i.e. sports or comfort

Your selection remains stored even if you remove the SmartKey from the ignition lock.
