Ride quality

How many of you guys find the ride a bit too bouncy?

I've got the sports pack and find it very bouncy

What is or what is a ideal tyre pressure to be having

I feel that the run-flats give a hard ride, not to even mention the noise that they make on the road! I keep to the pressure recommended in the doors (2.4 bar at the back and 2.2 in the front) When i have to replace I'm definitely switching to normal tires (probably Michelin PS2, Pirelli PZero or Falken)

Question

can't figure out that sticker tho :-(

Now that I bought a space saver, don't think I'd also replace with RFT's
the price and the ride quality

I use 2.3 all round and it feels OK. If I go any higher I find thesteering a bit too "loose" at high speed.

I think the ride sux on the run flats. Considering Bilstein Electronically Adjustable Shocks to overcome the harsh ride. Not to sure about getting rid of the run flats.

I have purchased new 18" Elipsoids, but cant afford new tyres just yet. I am looking at fitting either the new Michelin Pilot Sport 2, or Pirelli Pzero's. Runflats are out like pink seats! Looking at buying a new tire per month, then only fitting the wheels after all is done.
