Dads new 08 clk550

Hello, My father just retired and wanted a convertible to drive around. We looked at everything including a mustang to a 335i, but Dad fell in love with an 08 clk55 with the premium 3 package. its a metallic red 550 cabriolet with cream interior. It is a sweet ride and has the wood steering wheel minus the paddle shifters. We have been delorean people for a while so it is certainly nice to drive something more modern.

One question though. THe first CLK dad drove had a much softer ride. It really had the boat feeling. The clk he bought has the sport suspension and while I thought it was nice, dad really liked the softer ride. Anyone know how much we would be talking about to get the normal non-sport suspension installed instead. is it just a set of shock that makes the difference in the ride?
