Sport Suspension adjustable?

Looking at a new MCS and wanted to know if I should add sport suspension? I am an aggressive driver and like a tight feel for handling.

Hi ya

I found that a good set of wheels, tire and a good 4 wheel alignment set up was a good start.
If you need more then a good set of coil overs is the way to go.
I fitted some bc racing coil overs on my r53 MCS and it transformed the car the difference was day and night

Hope this helps

Two suspension options are offered. Dynamic Damper Control lets you adjust the suspension but its "sport mode" isn't as tight as the Sport Suspension option which has stiffer springs, shocks and thicker anti-sway bars.

I've ordered a new mcs and I'm also unsure whether to go for the damper control or the sports suspension? Anyone had any experience?
