    Thumbs up Re: Audi Magnetic Ride

    It makes the car safer feeling (less sway) in the turns . Maybe a spring kit without Mag. ride could be BETTER !! I wonder if there are different spring kits for Mag ride/non Mag.ride ??

    Re: Audi Magnetic Ride

    When I test drove the R8 it did make a big difference. We also have this option on our Corvette (I think it was one of the first cars to employ this technology) and it is the nicest riding vette I've ever driven.

    It makes a big difference in the feel of the car in turns. It is nice that they did not make the car ride like it was on all the time. This way you have comfort when you are just driving around, but stiffness and feel when you want it. It should be standard on all R8s, not an option.

    By the way - I believe this is standard equipment on the 2010 models for both the V8 and V10.

    I think its first use in a production car was by Ferrari but I could be wrong.
