well, i rather like the way both mine ride.

the 350sdl is pretty cushy but still firm when needed in a corner or if needed an evasive move.

the 500sec is pretty firm, and pretty sporty. it sits a bit lower than a sedan i think, and i have the sport bilsteins on it. you feel every crease but it is not a problem for me.

still waiting for a detailed explanation of why the caddy subframe smokes the benz. i am prepared to not be convinced but am very interested in the reasoning.
