    Would anyone with mag ride be able to tell me where the switch is? I guess it's under the radio/nav next to the ESP switch. A pic would be nice too!

    John.

    It goes to the immediate right hand side of the Hazard switch and removes the coin tray, the other 3 that can go on that side are:
    PDC+ / Park Assist / Flat Tyre Sensor Reset

    Yeap definitely there I know for sure as thinking of a front pdc which has button there as already advised, also mag ride has been reported as rather **** overall, you sure you wanna spend that kinda dough on the suspension only to be let down.

    Depends on your point of view. Yes I've driven one and was impressed, I find the standard ride a tad harsh, especially now we have a little person on board. With M/R off it's a softer ride than a standard car and when on it's firmer than standard.

    Don't think it's **** at all. On the standard setting the ride feels a little more complient than my last S3 without any more body roll, a bonus on long journeys. In sport mode it tightens things up nicely, great on smoother surfaces which I admit are hide to find in these pothole ridden times.

    Its possible they've changed some things with the system design as in different suspension parts, updated & module that controls, so it may have improved but there were a few discussions on this & people with said it didnt seem that impressive, just going on owners with & there experiences.

    As above mate.

    Yes its in that bank of buttons mate as self levelling button.

    Some of us use our brains instead of just owning one.
