I installed mine about a month ago. Just time consuming and you need to be careful with the interior panels' screws and clips / poppers as they are easy to misplace or break. Just take your time. Have fun, and here is my thread if it helps and you missed it:

Hi umbertob,
Looks pretty straight forward from looking at your post thanks Thumbs Up
Biggest pain looks like running the cable to the front...

Yeah, it's a bit more of a pain for us LH drivers, since you need to cut across to the opposite corner of the car... For RH drive vehicles, at least the run will be shorter and easier - and you'll have plenty of extra cable left. 2020 NAS Defender 110 HSE 5-seater / Silver / Khaki / Black Pack / Black Roof / Satin Film / Cold Pack / Off-Road Pack / Advanced OR Pack / Comfort + Convenience Pack / Sirius + HD radio / HUD / Meridian Surround

Can't find anywhere to buy this unit.
Tried mailing them but no answer.
Anyone know how to get hold of a unit?

So the most time consuming part of this mod for me was the placement of the provided selector knob.

Umbertob did place it under the steering wheel, I would go a little further. On the console left from the USB ports

A lot of work to get this part out. Seats left/ right, side panels, 6 bolts to release the console, 15 torx screws..pff.
Needed to modify the rear by cutting away some stud

Bolted everything back in ( changed the cigarrete chargingport for USB c constant Live )

So the placement and visability of the coloured led is perfect now. No Mud flaps for my 90.!

Update, Final thoughts

When in normal driving height the car is very comfy but there is also some serious body roll and the electronics react very quick when cornering with high speed on acceleration.
With the Llams on the first position left - Low - the driving characteristics improve drastically, less body roll by cornering,
still comfy on good tarmac , changing lanes on the highway feels now very confident.
It is not a sports car of course but the addition to lower it improves the overall handling , I also note that the full time 4 wheeldrive grips more aggressive, more gummy even with Mud Terrains.

Extra Low was used in a parking garage with 190cm max - height of the car 191.5cm
(Disclaimer, my lowered Thule Edge Wingbars are 0,5cm higher than the sharkfin antenna, so it / that is protected)
Extra Low with easy access comes in very handy for the older and my disabled girlfriend.

High with offroad height is not comfy anymore
Super High with offroad high only usable by very slow rock crawling / no suspension left at all.

Worth to mention : I did weighed my D90 the first day with me and a full tank 2230kg.
With steelies, Mud Terrains,Winch, onboard compressor, all the Recovery gear etc.etc. it is now near 2500kg

I've done by now almost 25 modifications, wish I had done the Llams height controller in the beginning..
Any questions feel free to ask. No Mud flaps for my 90.!
