However, the M performance suspension solves this issue by upgrading the shocks/struts then disabling DHP if your car has it when installed.
I have driven mine with DHP pretty damn hard in some extremely tight switchbacks on canyon roads and I have never once felt it getting away from me or 'lagging' the road conditions. I've driven my motorcycles and older Audis with sport setups on those roads many many times and the DHP is the most fun to drive by far (well the bikes are more 'fun' but part of that is because they are scarier to ride there at higher speeds).

Now, am I pushing it beyond 7/10s? Probably not, but it would be foolhardy to do that on public roads in any event.
