    Not had the Allroad very long and suspect somethings not 100% with the system. Should you be able to when stationary with the engine running go through all the 4 level settings? When I bought the car she was lifting to level 3, the guy who sold me the car said she would not lift to level 4...

Been told the offset is ET35 and wanted to space her (Just looked again at the website they say et 45?). Was told 10mm spacers would be just...

    Wheel bearings or cv?

    Got a low vibrating hum going on which gets louder when turning to the right. I'm sure it has to be a wheel bearing or a cv, not sure which though. When I turn around to the right slowly in a say a car park I can't hear any ticking or clonking which makes me think it could be a wheel bearing...

Not expecting any great difference in performance...
