Last week I selected Off-Road mode for the first time. OK, it was only an unmade road with deep potholes but AFAIK it's the only way to raise the ride height. What surprised me is that PASM went into maximum stiffness mode. I would have expected the opposite.

I noticed the same on my S when I used went to offroad on an unmade track with a few shallow potholes. I think it is done to help resist bottoming. However, on the track I was on there was little risk of that and if I go there again I will see if I can ease off the stiffness for a slightly more comfortable ride
