    Hello:

    I have a 3.0Q a4 with ultra sport on order and I am a little worried that the ride will be too firm/harsh for my wife. Anybody have this car or a sports suspension that can comment?

    It's a little stiffer than the normal A4's. You do give up that luxury ride for the improved handling but it is still a comfortable car.

    What size of wheels have you ordered?
    I find my 18" wheels in combination with the high air pressure (41 psi) and the firmer sports suspension, adds up to a 'hard ride'.

    Put some Softer All Seasons on your stock 17" wheels and you'll notice a big difference. Those stickly Ultra High Performance tires are very stiff.

    The sport suspension is perfect for me....not too harsh. My wife doesn't mind it and she drives a floaty Benz.
