The trick suspension on Mercs is, as pointed out, air-based; this is incredibly clever, allowing minimal lean and real composure, during hard cornering, whilst maintaining huge levels compliance - hence I could run 20's with rubber-band tyres and still enjoy a magic carpet ride.

I very much doubt that the active suspension on F3x's will be air-based - it's typically a multi-thousand pound option on cars that have it as standard higher up the range.

The best we can hope for is a set of Magnetorheological dampers.

To add, I'm talking about the CL55 AMG I had before the C63
