    I converted my Navigator to springs in the back and never had a problem with the car again.

    It lowers itself when at cruising highway speeds to increase gas mileage and make the car more fuel efficient....

    That I understood, but literaly lowered to entry height and forced the car to slow down, having to pull over and turn off and then turn the car back on. Hence I turned the car back in and got a new one. Ultimately the 06 and 08 LR3's that I had were plagued with electronic issues pushing me away from the brand.

    It's also to increase stability at high speed.


    Good thing it wasn't an old Citroen with pneumatic suspension.

    I wouldnt, the W12 is such an amazing engine. You can get it for a similar price, there are just so few of them. Buy one in Germsmany and bring it here.

    Find one with the fix done, never heard of it. I do know struts on my A8 are $1500 a pop and are not known to fail. Maybe an '05 or '06 wont have that problem?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2005...4818634?pt=US_Cars_Trucks&hash=item2ebdeb6e4a

    That right there is a LOT of car for $27k - - thats a $105,000 car when new

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2004...3880866?pt=US_Cars_Trucks&hash=item4165634d22

    '04 for 17k

    Wife has an Allroad. The failure point is the compressor, generally not the struts. You can just remove the air part and convert to normal struts too. The compressor is like a $900 part.

    That car was a star. So few left. A great car to invest in, that car will become a classic and should appreciate.

    Funny, all this air suspension talk... that car also has an air suspension (rear, I think), most current owners convert to normal struts.

    That is one dogshit pic though... lets do it some justice:

    I think the 2.5 is supposedly better, has some kinks worked out over the 2.3 My neighbor has one in his collection that switches out to pretty regularly, with a stickshift. The regular ones definitely don't look like the EVO versions, those are like the 'black series' of today.

    I'm trading in over the next couple weeks. Picking up a new vette. I guess I'm going through my mid-life crisis a little early (24) lol.

    The C6 should be replaced soon, getting older. But they held onto the C4 for a long ass time (I don't keep up with concepts or anything like that)... Try and find a CZo6 CPO or just used, you find mint low mile one for about the price of an entry Vette. If new, get the Grand Sport Cyber Gray (I think is the color), red fender stripes, red interior, glass roof, chrome wheels, and 6 Speed. :slayer:
