Actually, to me the car is more nimble, and more comfortable on good roads. On rough roads it is somewhat less comfortable than before. The increased handling is much more noticable than the decreased ride quality.
I bought this car from my parents when my father died and my 87 year old mother couldn't pass her drivers test. My mom had ridden in the car every day since it was new. She rides in it several times per week with me now, and doesn't know that I have changed the suspension. She has even remarked that she always looks forward to riding in the MB because it is 'so much more comfortable than her friends cadillac'!!! Go figure. I am certainly not about to volunteer to her that I have been transforming "their pride and joy" into an autocross wannabe!
