I totally agree with both David's and Dabaitu's statements. If your not a sporty driver then you won't be missing much.

When you hear alot of the enthusiast talk about suspensions being soft.. dont be mistaken that it is very soft.. in fact on a comfort level i would give it an 8 or 9 outa 10. I would say that more of the guys in the forums like a sportier ride for the playful weekends in Sports + mode, hence a preference leans towards a firmer suspensions. I have had both before and if you have a mix of driving characteristics then go for adaptive.

I live in the city and its fine dont worry. I actually even asked the Mrs before if she found the ride harsher to our F10. She gave the tumbs up so it must be ok.

I urge newcomers to get the Xenons! Dont miss out its a must have.
