I agree, the average Joe blogs can find it difficult to setup adjustable dampers even with a simple 1 way adjustment, but if you spend some time to understand what is happening and how adjustments effect the car and butt dyno, they can give you a car much closer to what you personally want. It's down to the individual.

On the other hand, manufacturers don't always get it right even with so called experts and plenty of money invested in testing and development.
