koni dampers (please help me settle an argument )
« on: May 23, 2015, 09:49:22 am »
My wife (love her) is adamant that when she switches sports mode off (something I never do ) the suspension is less harshe. I tell her it's all in her mind as sports mode sharpens throttle response and weights the steering but does nothing to the dampers. I explained that the fsd bit means they adjust to the road conditions and firm up when cracking on on smooth roads and soften when bumpy (apparently ) to which she replies they also soften up when sports mode is turned off. Please say who's right and who's wrong ;)

    I wouldn't go as far as Ben  :hide: but you are quite right.
    Sport mode does absolutely nothing to the suspension.

    Cheers Benn and John I knew I was right. My wife's reply was "well it definitely feels softer what do they know" When I replied that John is An Abarth salesman she said "He's  a salesman not a mechanic". She did say it smiling and know for once I'm right. :whistle:
