FK8 FK8 CTR Sport Line Ride

I'm a newbie and have had my 2021 Polished Metal CTR Sport Line for a couple of months and I love most things about the car except I find the ride even in Comfort mode not very good I feel every imperfection in the road more than I thought I would. I don't remember it being that bad when I test drove the car (obviously a test drive is different to owning especially when the dealer insisted a salesman should come out). One of the reasons I went for the Sport Line was the 19" alloys. I came from a 2017 Golf R and as a drive the CTR is much better. Am I being too critical and just got to learn to live with it? Cheers.

Good choice of motor, i'd have one if i could but with 19" tyres and hard performance suspension I think you will have to live with it.
Even the FN2 with 18" tyres can be a bit unforgiving on rough roads.

I think the ride with the 20s in comfort mode is pretty good, better than I was expecting and that includes driving on poor roads. My RS6 felt worse on the same roads, but I put that down to 21s and weighing 2 tonnes! Guess it depends on your frame of reference.

You could try checking your tire pressures.

  • Seems odd that your sport line rides harsh as you say. Mine rides like our f80 3 series in comfort. Equally unlike the normal fk8 type r I can use plus r on the road no problem. I keep it in sport at all times though to be honest. Mines a road car same as my last fk2 type r and the sport line excels imo in this role, smaller wheels, more tyre, more sound deadening and a black interior. For me it's perfect. Although I think removing the rear wing makes all the other styling elements look more bonkers / ridiculous. They look much better in person than in pictures.

As said above check tire pressures. Mine came with 42 psi all round from its PDI at honda LOL
