Excellent work Reebs and well worth keeping as a sticky.

Just a thought. Maybe it's it appropriate to add the facelift monogram options? Quite a lot of them though, including interior, exterior, ICE and alloys.

JDC,

Where did you get this information from?
All the 2004 Facelift brochure mentions regarding suspension is as follows:

"MacPherson strut front suspension with coil springs, gas filled dampers and anti-roll bar"

"Z-axle rear suspension with coil springs and gas-filled dampers"

and

"Rear anti-roll bar on V6 saloons and all tourer models"

All of the above are common to ALL facelift derivatives.

I can find no reference to self levelling suspension anywhere. While I appreciate that as a moderator you have the ability to access members posts & amend them if needed, I would have hoped you might have checked with me first before adding material. You could well be right about self levelling suspension, but what about whether it applies to the Connoisseur SE alone or was part of the Connoisseur SE Pack option, or indeed was it available to the Contemporary or Classic cars?

I have spent the best part of two weeks researching the data for this thread to try and make it as accurate as possible.......was I wasting my time I wonder

With regard to the Traction control, again I looked very hard to find any reference to it in the facelift literature while I was compiling the thread but could not find anything, I had therefore concluded that it was no longer fitted to these cars. Can you confirm that you do have the Traction Control disable switch as one of the five below the ATC controls. All Fully loaded switch packs that I have seen have 2 heated seat switches, cruise control, smartnav button and on saloons the rear sunblind.

Rant over now

I have to agree with Reebs.
The only 75's fitted with traction control as standard are the Connoisseur and Contemporary 4.6 V8..

Self leveling suspension.
I quote from the 2004 brochure no. 6269 and the 2005 brochure no.6340.
"Sports Pack. sports suspension with 17" Star Spoke alloy wheels."
[not available on the Tourer if self-leveling suspension from the Monogram has been chosen]..

My 03' Club CDT has the dual aircon setup not the ATC aircon which I thought came in the model above the CDT SE?

Yep, this subtle change to the Club spec slipped through the net, thanks for picking us up on it.

Hopefully there won't be too many more...

Thread has been amended.
