I went out for a blast (I have forgotten when was the last time I did this...), tightened the rear suspension to 9 (both front and back are at 9 now, where 1 is softest and 14 hardest) and f&*k me, the car is so fantastic to drive!
The private track consisted of consecutive left-right bends at speeds 80-100 (km/h) and the car corners like its on rails. The back is planted finally but can also be provoked depending on the driving style. I had an Insignia trying to follow but it soon disappeared in my rear view mirror.
The rear was seriously underdamped before hence the bouncyness I used to have but not anymore!
OK, it can be a bit harsh around town on bumpy roads but the handling is superb so I can live with this!
I am in love again :biggrin:
