Best regards, south

Yes, sorry. PASM not PDC, I'm getting my Porsche acronyms mixed up (despite doing a magazine test recently - doh!).

Anyway, I would expect EDC to behave as it does in most other sporting cars. the 'sport' setting is very sporty and is usually 'firmer' than a conventional spring/damper unit. Comfort is better suited for driving through rutted city streets. Most of the time it's better to just leave it in 'normal' mode, which will be similar in firmness to a non-EDC car using conventional static dampers. The differences between each mode are usually very narrow, but 'sport' is usually too firm for normal roads.

I should find out in the next 6-8 weeks.
