When the bags aren't fully inflated it pretty bouncy but its not uncontrollable. When I'm at "ride height" its a comfortable ride. I'm not about to go out and try and auto-x on this set up, but its fun. I have the compressor and all the valves in the spare tire well so as you can imagine its a little noisy, but the false floor muffles it alot, turn the stero up and you never notice its there .

As for cost, I did pick it up as a used "kit" from another member on here. I use the term "kit" loosely as there were many parts I have replaced, modified, rewired, etc. In total I have right at a grand into it which is less than a 1/3 of the price of a new kit.

The air ride is a ton of fun to play with and its defiantly unique. I love that when I park I can literally set the fender on the wheel/tire and when I get ready to leave it jumps up and I drive off with no worries of speed bumps. I don't drive the car every day anymore so I think air was the perfect option for me. Would I recommend it to every one? probably not.

Like I said already, the air ride is just plain fun.

Nickgt40 Not usually into the Cervinis kit stylistically, but your car is super clean and you've done some quality work.

Good Job!
