According to my Datacard, the car has 486 sports suspension fitted - is this standard or option for a UK spec 2008 facelift 350, or does sport actually means comfort/standard?
Sports suspension (486) gives you 18" rims, firmer shocks and lower (shorter) springs.
Better handling and a more sporty look/feel .... but you'll be looking out for potholes all the time (well that's what I end up doing!!)
I found the ride a bit harsh to start with but have got used to it and after doing up the bolts on the under tray heat shield (to stop the rattles) am ok with it now.
