    You can check whether the car raises and lowers using the button by the gear shifter. If its like my airmatic (totally trouble free in over 5 years incidentally) both red lights showing is the lowest setting, one light slightly higher, no light is the highest setting.

    Take a look when you first arrive to see if it is sitting evenly and not lower/higher on one or more corners. The airmatic pump should raise the car silently. Undue noise may point to a tired pump.

    As John above, airmatic is arelatively simple and mainly trouble free system. I'd take it over ABC anyday simply over the cost if either goes wrong.

    I know the cars been sitting a few days and it was sitting nice and square , the only noise I heard was when I turned the knob for lumbar
    in the seats. It seemed to be a button at top centre of dash when
    Pushed lit 2 red lights and brought up screen menu.

    Only thing it’s well loaded and very tidy but no heated seats , also when
    I push button on dash it’s comes up on centre screen sport 1 ,then push again sport 2 ,then push again convenience comes up. Should I feel the suspension move . Or how does this operate.

    Air suspension is much the same as the Citroen system in principle, it just has electronic control.
    Fundamentally its a compressor, a reservoir or two, a couple of valve blocks, airbags on each corner and height sensors.
    The pump provides air to the reservoirs, the height sensors tell the computer what it needs to do, the computer tells the valve blocks to open or close and the valve blocks let air in or out of the bags as required.

    In terms of issues, pumps can fail, relay operating the pump can fail, sensors can fail and bags can fail. The pipework to the bags can corrode (especially at the rear).

    Maybe it doesn't have airmatic, especially if you can't find the raise/lower buttons

    It does look a nice car, they have a certain "presence", and set the standard for ride quality in their day.

    There’s a button on left of gear lever with lights and 3 strokes at it and a button at top middle of dash which brings up the sports 1 & 2 and convenience writing on the dial

    Problem is the guy selling it doesn’t know
    much about them either.
    It’s just he took it in .

    I have ABC and the button which raises and lowers the suspension does just that.

    Well specced? Doesn't have ventilated massaging seats nor bi xenon.

    Could be other settings. But does suggest airmatic.

    With the weather it is the way it is Glengormley's a bit too far to go and see it.
