Quick Video Of Air Lift Functions

Hey guys,

Some of you have paid attention to the 'build'. There's still a lot of people that think the car is driven as low as it sits in the photos. However, that's not the case!

The car will automatically rise to it's driving height when started. From there, the system constantly monitors the pressure in the bags, making for perfect ride height regardless of what's in the trunk or who's in the car (no more "no fat chicks" excuses!), and really cuts down on body roll in corners and turns.

I have full adjustment at all four corners (makes jacking the car up a breeze), from either the iPad in the trunk (strictly for show), iPhone or the hardwired controller in the middle console.

The system was installed to a perfectionist's level by Underwraps Automotive. The guys did an insanely good job and stand by their work 100%.

Sacrificed a little bit of trunk space and added about 30 extra pounds of weight, for those curious.

Either way...I love it. Gives me some extra confidence on these insane NY (Long Island) roads and helps get me into questionable driveways!

Enjoy!

T'anks, man.

Can you adjust each corner individually? Like can you slam the rear and raise the front to the max? (ie low rider effect)

Yep! Each corner is independently adjustable.

There's 5 presets which you adjust yourself, hence the "crazy driveway" setting. I'm fortunate to have a flat driveway, but have a few friends with some steep stuff.

Not really my cup of tea, but props for a nice setup and doing what you like. How do they ride?

I can say, without a doubt, that when it's at it's ride height it feels better than it did with the KW H.A.S that I had.

I was being hypercritical for the first few drives, as it was still in the back of my mind that people's positive reviews were just hype...

But, it feels great. I have a particularly shitty road that I would always avoid due to it just being uncomfortable. I went down it a few times already, right after driving my X3...and, the M3 felt better.

The tucked look isn't permanent, and isn't necessarily my cup of tea, either (although parking aired out in public definitely generates some interesting reactions). I have a set of wheels being built that will sit much more flush than the 220Ms. For now, it was easier to calibrate the system to the stock wheels than the Forgestars I was running...

Not a huge fan of wheels being tucked under fenders. I do have to say your e92 doesn't look white in the video.

Haha, thanks! New wheels are coming, but I've found a new appreciation for the 220Ms!

You'll love it. I see you're in NYC...you'll REALLY love it. Haha. I frequently make trips up to Northern NJ, and never take the M3 because of the Cross Bronx...now, I'm not so scared.

Looks grey to me.

I've personally driven an Air Lift setup on our cars for a few days. It is very well mannered for an air system, and definitely adds a ton of practicality. Looks good man.
