    Hi
    Has anyone got or tried Audi's magnetic dampers? Have you found any significant improvement in road holding? I am presently ordering a new Audi A5 cabriolet.
    Many thanks in anticipation.

    They are very good on my S3. In sport mode, they keep the car well balanced when throwing it into tight corners...I'd get mag ride again in my next Audi.

    They're pretty good on the A5 Cab too - just got one and the sport setting is great!

    Apparently you can't get magnetic ride on the cabriolet. I have ordered electronic damping control - is that what you are refering to?

    Isn't this the same thing? - perhaps one of the on-line techno - wizards can enlighten us?

    Apparently not! They are both electronic but work on different principles. Nevertheless, glad to read that you are happy with the damping control, I have also ordered it so I hope you are right!
    Many thanks
