The difference will be night to day in favour of non runflats,especially on the older models.

Enjoy

Just re read my post and don't think I worded it properly, The question I was ment to ask was, Will there be much difference ride quality wise coming from 16" alloys to the 18" on SE suspension.

You will always loose some ride quality when changing to larger wheels with lower profile tyres.
It shouldn't be too bad on 18's though because you will still have quite a meaty sidewall on your tyres.
As Hotcoupe has said, when you change to non run flats you will notice a big improvement.
