    Nice change from the IS-F, where they seemed to equate simply removing the suspension altogether with performance. It hurts me to just watch one of those cars drive down the road.

    There's comfort like an old Detroit barge, and comfort like a good Euro or Japanese car that hasn't been spoiled by the silly trend to large wheels and ultra low profile tires. I've been in some fine cars that have irritating short, sharp motions and NVH without any significant performance benefit, because it is really difficult to tune a decent ride with the "that looks cool!" rubber bands around the oversized wheels.

    Steering feel suffers, too, but I suppose the urgency to get the vehicles moving out of the showroom is driving the ultra-low profile tires, and the run-flats make it much worse. A truly fine chassis performs well with higher profile tires, and the ride doesn't suffer.
