I have the sport with 18 inch wheels and feel it is not as soft as it should be.

I have 18 inch wheels, tend to drive in Comfort mode on the S/tronic, the ride can be a bit harsh on potholed roads but on a good surface it is comfortable and quiet, this is the first AUDI I have had with factory fit Michelin tyres, perhaps that has something to do with it.

What tire pressure settings are people pumping there tires to? Have you tried the comfort tire pressure setting rather than standard pressures ?

Since I bought it , I was using dynamic settings. After reading this changed to comfort and don't really notice any change.

I mean the actual tire pressure. Not the setting on the mmi

I read the same in a couple of reviews. S-line has a lower/stiffer suspension (which you can deselect in the configurator btw). If you combine this with anything bigger than 17" it affects the comfort of the ride too much. This was my main reason not to select the Edition 1, but configure my own from scratch.

Good call Dave 8-)

I changed my pressures to Comfort today and much prefer the softer ride. I thought from the moment that I picked my car up that the tyres felt way too firm but I didn't know that there was an option to choose whichever setting suited best.
