Question Sport suspension ride

Hello all:

I have read that the sport suspension option on the C-Class rides harsh and every imperfection in the road can be felt. Is this true?

Thatís pretty true for any real sports suspension. Even in the ML with air suspension you feel more bumps.

Even with the comfort setting on a regular C300, you feel every bump bump on the road mainly due to the run-flat tires.

Thanks for your reply! You are right, run-flat tires do offer a harsh ride. They have to be replaced much earlier also. I have seen many needing replaced as early as 15,000 miles.
