"hacking" the sensors affects all ride height settings. There is one sensor at each wheel used for all modes.
Lifting the QL suspension is like installing stiffer and stiffer springs. Possible and you can do it but I would not want to ride in one that has been lifted in this way. Spacers are not available for QL because they interfere with the QL computer and there is no way around it yet. Coils spring spacer lifts don't increase spring rates, and replacing the coils with longer springs won't necessarily change spring rates. As others have said, if you are serious about driving around with a lifted WK2, stay away from QL. IMHO lifting a QL is a non-starter.
But if you insist, there is no way yet (published) to override the QL height computer. All you can do is trick it into thinking the suspension is at a different height than it really is by "hacking" the height sensors. You can raise the vehicle as much as you want until you hit the suspension rebound stop (you can get a rough idea by jacking the body up with the wheels hanging to the point where they start lifting off the ground). Now when you have the height set by hacking the sensors, and have it set to near max lift in normal, if you should accidentally switch to OR1 or 2, the QL compressor will try to push the control arms through their stops and you may quickly have a burned out compressor.
So bottom line, you can play with the height sensors which has the effect of adding a stiffer spring, so its not something you want to do other than for style.
