: I doubt your sedan has the self-leveling--no need for it to have it. Checking the resevoir will tell if you have it or not, or you can look under the car and along the rear sway bar. If you find a brass bar attached to the rear sway bar and to a lever then you have self-leveling.

: My '93 525iTouring has this system. I know this because the idiot computer in the dash is blinking at me to fix the little bugger. I'm pretty sure I just need to replace the one rear shock, but it's over $400! Anyone have any suggestions on getting either a good used shock or a new one?

: Thanks in advance!

Keep checking around. It is common to remove the self-leveling system on M5's to install a stiffer suspension. I have a '95 525iT and I would like to have the leveling system for it.
