The Lexus LS460 sport is a good luxury suspension with mediocre sports feel, the F10 is a bit better than that. If we assign a percentage to comfort and sportiness, the Lexus LS would probably be 80% comfort and 20% sport, whereas a M3 is 95% sport and 5% comfort. If someone can break that 100% total in a matter of speaking, that will make for a pretty good suspension. As it stands, I would give the F10 with dynamic suspension maybe 65% comfort and 40% sport, which adds up to 105%, better than most suspension. Active suspension is the future, whereas a computer can adjust to road condition and driver's demand to provide a smooth and yet sporty ride.
