    Does air suspense do anything for the ride quality? Would it make going over speed bumps more pleasant?

    This has been discussed extensively in the Model S forums for years now. Some people like SAS (Smart Air Suspension) for a smoother ride, for height adjustability, or other reasons. Some people don’t think it is worth the extra money and some people actually prefer coils because they feel more connected to the road, simpler so less likely to fail, or other reasons.

    I have owned an S with coils, which I liked, and an X with SAS, which I like because the height adjustment capability can be an advantage when hitching/unhitching my trailer. If I didn’t tow I would be fine with coils.
