    Took delivery of my S85D this week! Very happy with it overall except for the ride quality. While it's amazing on the highway and looks amazing, I think the 21" wheels are simply too bumpy for the winding roads where I live in Tai Tam :/

    Look to see if anyone with newish 19" cyclones would be open to swapping for almost brand new 21" turbines?

    I bought the car with the standard 19" wheel. After over a month, I changed them with 21" wheel. I can tell you that the difference in noise and ride comfort is very minimal, or even non-noticeable.

    My 19" tyre is Michelin PS3 and 21" is continental 5P.

    I also drive to tai tam from time to time. I don't find it bumpy at all. Of course, this is very subjective.
