    Let me rephrase the question...

    The "old" P85+ had suspension upgrades which made it handle better than the normal P85.

    It looks like now the upgraded suspension is only available on the P85D.

    What difference does the dual motor have on the actual handling - lets say having fun racing down a mountain road?

    For current models, which will handle better in the twisties? ...

    1. S85 or S85D

    2. S85D or P85 (no D)
