Compressor location depends on year. Earlier years are under the hood. Much easier to access when you need to. The L36 and Series 2 L67 airbox caused it to have to move.

You can also tell by finding the sensor arm attached to the right rear control arm.

ELC is not rare on SLE'*. CCR is. To have an SLE with all 5 switches on the center console is very rare indeed, but you can't get all 5 unless you get the L67 also.

ELC is Electronic Level Control, and is a very easy system to diagnose and repair. It'* very handy, and by itself, in normal operating mode, can improve ride and handling by a ton.

you will need to get the sway bars, center links and springs from the SSEi car....Many have just upgraded the sways for better handeling in the corners
