I had planned on getting a new sensor next month anyway, but when I saw the replies on the other level system post I got a little panicky haha. Thats put my mind at rest though. I'm fairly sure it will be the sensor itself as none of the wiring should have been disturbed at any point. It used to only do it whenit was in dynamic, but if you lifted it into the comfort setting it stopped doing it. It looks like a crop sprayer on comfort though. Im looking at it out of the window just now and there is about 3 or 4 inches between the top of the back tyre and the wheel arch, the front is sitting a bit lower but my drive isnt level, it usually sits ridiculously high at the front as well.
Because you've got a faulty sensor it will be throwing out all the other settings as the car constantly tries to "level itself" to where it "thinks" it needs to be and typically if the front sensors are playing up then the back can either be way to high or too low so I'd replace the sensor and let it all settle and see where its at

Confidence is the feeling you have before you know better . . . .
