People looking for new air suspension modules online will quickly find numerous cheap products: there are plenty of online sales platforms offering car parts. On one of these numerous portals, for example, air suspension modules for the Mercedes-Benz brand are offered for the equivalent of around € 235. This is an astonishingly cheap price for, as stipulated, “brand new” products. A price that should set all alarm bells ringing. We wanted to know what’s behind the supposed new parts, so we carried out a test.
To do this, we began by ordering an air suspension module which was tagged as “new”. What the seller didn’t expect: the cheap air suspension module was not just installed blindly into the car; it had to withstand one endurance test after another.
