: When i first test drove the car i took one that did NOT have the sport package. It was a great ride. Went thru bumps like it wasn't there at all. Then i test drove one with Sport. I didn't feel any noticable difference in ride quality but it was just more fun to drive since it was a bit firmer. Now that i've been driving it for almost a year and know the car much more (it's limits) I find that it could be firmer just a bit more. I would suggest the Sport package bc you will feel the road much better. Give it some time and you will see that you made the wisest decision. IMO I think that the Sport package should be standard equipment. Pay $1200 now for firmer suspension (plus sport seats plus sport steering wheel) or pay about $2000. later for good after-market set-up (without seats and steering wheel). I hope I made it in time. Let me know how it went. PS there will be an event in NH International Speedway on Oct.9 & 10. come and check it out. There will be many enthusiasts there to answer any questions you might have. Good luck.
