    Sorry if this has previously been discussed but I was going to ask whether there was a way to keep the X in "Very Low" mode? It's annoying to have to go into Controls each time I drive and set the suspension down.

    That said, I found this link as I was looking for an answer to the above...

    From what I've read, low suspension leads to better aerodynamics, but will cause greater tread wear as discussed in that article.

    Sure. The option for automatically changing to "Low" based on location/speed needs to be set to 'never'. Then you can select the ride hight and it will stay at, in this case, Very Low.

    I wonder if it increases suspension wear when driving in low or very low?

    I doubt it causes suspension wear but you reduce suspension travel for bumps, meaning you are more likely to bottom out. You are also much more vulnerable to road debris.
