Adaptive Suspension - Stupid Question

I just got our 2nd Velar (long story) and dealer told me it had adaptive suspension (with magnetic filings)

He told me this only became active in Dynamic mode. I can’t really say I notice much difference so my question is......how do I know if it is fitted?

Re: Rejection Offer - Advice Needed

The new balancer shafts lasted only 1000 miles before failing resulting in engine out again. This is the reason for rejection but there have been other issues wit...

Rejection Offer - Advice Needed

I am now in the process of rejecting my Velar which the dealership is supporting and are being very helpful.

Can Your Dealership Be Trusted To Wash Your Car Properly?

My car has been in and out of dealers many times in last 6 months (long story) Thanks to all the visits, the paintwork (Narvick Black) was an absolute mess with swirls, most of these swirls (in my opinion) have been caused by dealer washing as I am very careful with the wash and drying process.
