Thanks. On the tire/wheel front, I don't think I can go smaller than 17" due to the brake size. These are pretty light 2 piece wheels, but I'll look into the Oz wheels.
On the S class suggestion, I knew that was coming. But an S55 AMG is not in my price range. I plan to pick one up in about 2-3 years on the used market when it drifts downward - a lot!
Nothing I can do just by switching shocks? I thought that would be the easiest thing to do without monkeying with the suspension . . .
