My answer is a bit skewed because I never took my car on the interstate stock; today is her virgin run.

In town, I love it. It very near stock, only a touch stiffer. The main thing that I notice is that there is no give when you initially sit in it. Not hardly any rougher of a drive at all.

That being said, I've been stuck in it for the last 7 hours on the interstate and it has been rough. I'm sure that the comparison to stock would be the same, I just don't know that 100%. I blame the dampers and wheels, not the springs.

I would really like to not ever take this car on a road trip again. There is no middle ground with the PS3's-either the road surface is perfect and the car is quiet or it is not and the noise makes me want to jump out of the car.

P.S. - 36 mpg at 75 mph
