      You're saying there's no discernible difference in ride quality? Is that in both dynamic and comfort? How well does the magride do with bounce and controlling the springs?

      I find the magride sufficiently firm in dynamic mode during normal driving. It feels really boaty in Comfort. I wish the stiffness parameters could be tweaked thru vagcom.
