thanks

Yeah, given my recent tire change I would say 80% tires 20% suspension.

My new Pilot A/S are much smoother on small bumps and no big bang on big bumps.

The car still wallows at high speed.

Comparing the A4/S4 to our car, I was talking more suspension than outright acceleration. We got screwed....S5 is looking nicer all the time, especially driving at speed.

I think we all can safely say the I6 TT kills just about everthing on the road in the same price range or less.
