Suspension tuning

General notes

The Adaptive Damping System (ADS) automatically controls the calibration of the dampers and springs.

The damping is tuned individually to each wheel and depends on:
Х your driving style, e.g. sporty
Х the road surface condition, e.g. bumps
Х your individual selection, i.e. sports or comfort

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