Sorry for the lame questions, but I have yet to see one installed on a ride.

Finally, is this something I can install or do I truly need an installer?
what kind of car do you own Dedub?

Thanks Ling. Yes, it's an 05 E55. Also looking for flat badge if you have any suggestions.

You guys in So Cal are lucky...not many sick cars out here by me. Although, it makes my ride stand out:-) Did hear about a SLR on my local roads...haven't seen it personally.

The factory buttons remain in full function. Even dumped, you can control the valving by the Sport I and II modes. it is awesome. The car will NOT do the pogo stick thing even dumped lowest if in C mode.

Install is identicall to any wiring. if you are good with splicing, then try DYI, if not don't.

So I'm going to post this up here since this ELM is one of the most popular ones on the market today. These are just the settings for the larger black dial. The gray dials are self explanatory.

Cars with ABC/Airmatic = Setting 2
Cars with without ABC = Setting 1
Off position = Setting 0
Everyone with a RENNtech ELM....

the Setting 0,1 or 2 is for the bottom right setting which is basically the on or off setting next to the rear height setting.

0 is always off, as for whether your car uses 1 or 2 is completely up to the chassis.

Here is where your car needs to be:

Chassis 211 (E) Chassis 221 (S), and 219 (CLS) setting 1
Chassis 215 (CL), Chassis 220 (S), Chassis 221 ABC (S) Setting 2
Chassis 164(ML, GL) and 251 (R) setting 2

If anyone as ANY questions about there RENNtech ELM please feel free to contact us, as we have sold and installed well over 10's of these
