How sensitive are the individual corner controls on the iPhone?

Loving it!!


P.S. - A one touch autostart/preset lift would be the most gangster thing available, get on that haha!
The front is easy to control, but the rear bags have a smaller volume so they are a bit too fast. But I managed to get the height I wanted, so now the sensors do the rest of the work

And the car raises up to driving height when I start the car. It's an option.

Correct! But it does not air out when you stop the car. That option would be scary if you don't have your front wheels straight. That is the reason you have to hold the "all down" button for 5 sec until it airs out.

i love your boot setup.

i like how you mounted the tank right at the rear of the trunk so you can still fold down seats and use the whole trunk space if needed! LOOKS GREAT!!!!


Can you use a smaller tank?

Ahhh ok. Police in Australia are really bad, if I get caught with my bags then I my car will be deemed un-roadworthy, registration cancelled and I would have to take it home on a tow truck lol. :S

Thanks man! That is the exact reason I did it this way. If the tank was close to the seats I would not be able to fold down the seats...

I could have bought a 3 gallon tank instead of the 5 gallon, but I think it's nice to have a bigger tank. But the tank I have is 2 inches too wide for plastic room in the trunk. Would go a lot lower with a smaller tank.

They are called Rondell D58 and are very common to see on older BMWs in Europe. Originally they have a clear coat on the lip, but I removed it and polished the lips.

Wow, that is crazy. They can take the licence plates her also, but usually that's if your car is they just send you to

Thanks. Sure you can go fast with bags, I think they handle good. Don't care what others say, do what you like yourself. I expected a lot of negative feedback on my car, but almost everybody is positive.

It's tight for sure! The fronts are easier.

Thanks guys!

Wheels are temporary as stated many times before. Will get some decent 3-piece wheels with big lips during winter.
