It works from the high series bem if you have one otherwise it can be done with a seperate switch and a lot of ingenuity. :shock: :roll:

or you can get a kit for it to run seperately from the BEM they are rare to find, i've got one, yet to install it though. car goes to bodyworks on monday and i get my new arial then. i'll wire it up after that.

AFAIR the height is controlled by the BEM not the switch. The switch only tells the BEM what to do.
