The 09 was unbearable to me. The 13 a little better but still there. Both cars had 19' Wheels with the same Continental tires.

I did Drive an 11 with AD with 20s. I didn't notice the float as much. I'm now wondering if it is possible the floaty feeling is from the tires or maybe lack of self leveling rear suspension when combined with AD. I didn't check the cars I drove for self leveling rear suspension.

Does your car have 19" M-sport staggered wheels or Self Leveling rear suspension?
