    Hi,

    Just wondering whether someone can confirm whether "comfort" mode on the A3 2.0tdi Sport drive select makes any changes to the suspension. From browsing the manual and the web there seem to be conflicting statements. One article says suspension is softened, but I find this hard to believe: Audi A3 Saloon 1.6 TDI Sport review | Next Green Car

    When I checked 'individual' mode it only seems to allow customisation of steering and engine response, nothing about suspension - so is this the case with the comfort setting too? Not sure how changing steering and engine response contributes to 'comfort' if that is the case. Anybody tried this setting and if so, how did you get on with it?

    Thanks!
    Steve

    I'm guessing you would need the magnetic suspension to make an adjustment to the suspension damping

    Correct.....you need magnetic ride to allow changes in suspension characteristics using drive select.
