Maybe the same supplier, but this is the first closed system to be used in a mass produced personal vehicle. I can't say how it will hold up, but given most personal vehicle air suspensions they are high maintenance. The one draw back to having a closed system is, if the systems develops small leaks it will be unable to compress outside air to keep the suspension raised. With most air suspensions they can have small leaks, but still continue to function by pumping more air back into the system. If the system is unable to keep the suspension at normal ride height it will lock the mode or be crippled to the bump stops, which then you can only drive at 25MPH to reach assistance.
Not saying I do not have faith in the company, but I only give it a few months before we see problems being posted.
It is a cool feature but as most call a WOW factor, tradition suspension is for daily use. I think everyone should own at least one vehicle with air suspension before making their own evaluation.
