F30 Dampers on G20 ?

Hi,

I've been driving my G20 for about 6 months now, im using the M-sport version with 18" run flats. (Non-Adaptive) Unfortunately the roads in my country aren't the best and im really having issues with the overall stiffness of the ride, it just too uncomfortable for me, its harsh.

My friends are using the F30 and their cars are so comfortable, my question would be are the F30 dampers interchangeable with the G20 ?
Thank you

Is your suspension adjustable? You can put the suspension in comfort mode. You can also swap out the runflats for grand touring tires. Try lowering the pressure on the runflats a bit. That helped a little on mine.

+1.

I donít think the dampers from the F30 would work well with the G20 since spring rates and stuff would be different (?). Donít quote me on this though since Iím a noob when it comes to suspension mods.
And if you have RFTs, get regular tyres instead. RFTs are very stiff in comparison to regular tyres.

Im using the Non-Adaptive suspension (passive), how can i set the suspension to comfort mode ? I need to code it ? Does it make a big difference ?

The most effective option would be changing out the runflats. You can go for a higher sidewall if you want even more comfort.
