I wanted to reach out to the members here and see if anyone has or has had experience with TechArt's lowering module on Cayenne's (mines a turbo).

First, interested if your happy with it.

Where does it get installed (replaces factory module, is my understanding), does any one have pictures where and how to get to that area to swap one out.

Is it as simple as swapping out or need dealer involvement with adjusting some sort of program. I am very confused on this one, as MSRP is 3k for this part from TechArt and you are swapping out the entire module, why would you need to now have a dealer program something??? Maybe silly but then wouldn't the dealer just be able to reprogram the stock one???

How does it work, I hear people mention once you park it drops down (how much?), and do you use the "sport, normal, comfort" switches and anything else???

We lowered my brother's 2004 Cayenne Turbo using the calibration routine with a PIWIS tester. We found that we could lower it 45mm without any problems. Total cost £0.00, but you have to have access to a PIWIS tester.......

The way to achieve it is during calibration you have to measure the vehicle height on each side using specific measuring points, front and rear, and enter these figures into the PIWIS. The trick is to ADD 45mm to each figure, to fool the computer is 45mm higher than it actually. When it resets, it settles 45mm lower.

This sounds like a great idea - that I'd be really afraid of trying.

I want to go the other way, get more clearance for off-road / trail use. Has anybody tried calibrating the suspension to raise the Cayenne?

Of course the highest suspension setting is not recommended for normal driving, so we'd probably be getting close to the limits of the suspension setup.

Here in Iceland we have a lot of Land Rover Discovery 3's (LR3) that have been raised by moving the sensors, but just changing the calibration would be much easier.
