I recommend you find an older concrete highway for your next test drive. My M Sport's ride is acceptable on most asphalt surfaces except the most pocked, but on concrete at 70 mph+ it can rock and bounce dramatically. On one local section of I-94, it only does its very unique dance in the right lane. This despite both lanes being the same age and looking the same. Try resting your head against the headrest and it will beat the living sh!t out of you. Mind you this is not a patched road, although it is well traveled. The ride is better with the recently installed 17" non-runflat winter tires, but still not as smooth as I expected. Without question the car is a lot of fun on a smooth twisty road, however.
