How hard do you find your suspension?
Having read a few comments here and there regarding the suspension on the A3 I thought I'd ask the question.
How do you find the suspension on your A3, be it SE, Sport or S-Line? I'd be particularly interested to hear from those who've driven more than one of these derivatives.
Personally, I currently have an SE and I was concerned that the S-Line suspension would be rock hard by comparison so I made a point of test driving a couple before I placed the order for the new car. Frankly I was surprised as I thought it would be a lot harder than it was. Sure it's firmer and more "jiggly" over poor surfaces and you have to slow down a tad more for speed bumps but on the whole I didn't think it was hugely firmer than my SE.
Some people seem to think the Sport and S-Line suspensions are far far firmer than the SE, to the point of "ruining the ride", a comment I've seen a couple of times. Others, OTOH, don't seem to have any problems with it.
Interestingly, the vast vast majority of A3s I see are Sports with comparatively few SEs around. This could be simply down to people ordering based on a preference for the standard spec of the Sport over the SE and never test driving it beforehand (why do people do this!?) so for all I know loads of these Sport drivers could hate the suspension but have to live with it.
Be interested to hear people's thoughts on this.
