solstice, my point about the suspension was that It is harder to design a suspension that can both handle well and provide ride comfort than just an all out sport suspension that lacks ride comfort or a soft suspension that does not handle well. In my option, the F10's current suspension set up is has a very good combo of comfort and soprtiness. Just because it is not the sportiest suspension, that doesnt mean its not advance.
I think we agree except I have not really experienced a very good combo yet. One priority dominates in any given setup and in the F10 it's luxury for all available suspension options. It's IMO a good luxury suspension with mediocre sports feel.
