Old bag looked in good condition, but when I extended the bottom, you could see where it looked to have worn, I'd guess the source of the leak (I didn't specifically find a leak, but from the other one being done 6 months ag by the previous owner and a reasonably regular working of the pump after journeys, decided that it wasn't worth risking the pump going).

Yes I thought it was good value - pure luck as picked the first person on google that had a decent amount of positive reviews - he just happened to be able to fit me in and be pretty good.
Defo not worth the hassle at hose prices! Had the bottom of located easily, I'd of been ok (I think)

Fixed, labour cost £45

Garage had a gizmo to control the air suspension
Released the air out and swapped over

Box from Germany


Left side showed signs of fraying

Right side seemed okay, but both changed

I bought the same ones last week, and had them fitted myself. It was the first "major" mechanic job I did on a car. It was surprisingly simple and satisfying doing it yourself without having to donate a kidney to pay BMW to do it. Both of them took under two hours to do (with some swearing when the bottom part wouldn't clip in). Mine looked exactly the same, left one heavily frayed, but right one not so bad.

In glad it's fixed my problem

I can only for see more of these requiring these but many will go down BMW route as not many stocked options in England on oem quality parts

I don't quite understand how those do it as DIY as the garage got it to fit back being able to lower it into position using the electronics and that it was up on ramps

But fair play to those have

Wander what the quality of arnott ones are like as they are double the price again

So it’s been just over two years since getting this done

I’ve noticed my near side rear dropped again after 24 hours of no use

It’s gone back up after switching car on and will have to keep an eye on it again :(
