It's certainly a worthwhile point to make. And while I do understand this about the active suspension, I still feel as though it isn't necessary for my needs.

When they get that magic ride wizardry all figured out - the one that reads and predicts the road surface and actively controls the suspension's compression and rebound to compensate - then maybe I'll sign on. But maybe not. . I guess by then the active damper will be the entry level anyway.

Oh, and before someone points out the new S Class has it already - I know. But we've got a generation or two before it is available to us plebeians.
