Lowering S500 via MB computer

Can anyone tell me where in the DAS programming that you can lower the car 1/2" via the airmatic suspension. Are there 2 adjustments (1 per axle)? Also, would the car need to be realigned if lowered in this manner?
I have heard that these cars sold outside of the US are set to the lower setting.
Thanks

There's a shop in Alhambra called D2 Technik who lowered a CL500 and S500 w/ the air suspension. I saw them myself. they were lowered via "hardware" means, not computer as far as I know.

Lowering

There is capability within the das programming that allows you to lower the car 1/2" electronically to Euro specs. Thats not much, but its something. I just need to know what modules its in to help my freindly MB tech do it. Thanks

Joe P, another question

Thanks for the info Joe. Do you know if there is a setting per axle or is it just one change. Also, would realignment be necessary?
