2014 SE Sport Package Question....

hey for all you lucky 12 owners out there with the Sport package.
I was wondering, I know the package for $600 gives you...
Rear Discs
Painted Wheels
Spoiler
Fog Lights
Leather wheel and shifter.

Do you get anything changed in the Suspension?

Curious cause I just bought a 2013 SFE just so I could have Rear Discs and spoiler then added the Black Pack Wheels on it for a different look to it.

but now that I see the Sport Package has came back for the 2014 model year I'm debating on trading mine in.

any info would be greatly appreciated!

There really isn't much else different between the sport package and the SFE package other than the leather wrapped wheel, shifter, and fog lamps, therefore there really isn't that much to justify taking a bath on trading the car in so soon personally.

It's not like going from an S or SE to an ST or something.

The 2012 sport package suspension was a big ???
I got it so i would have the better sport seats, and rear disc brakes. I was hoping the suspension was better ..Still have no idea if yes or no.

I really doubt there's much of a performance diff between the trim levels even with different coils and I've seen nothing that shows it.

The 12 se sport was supposed to have the same suspension as a ti w/o the handling package, and the 13 se with 201A is supposed to have the same suspension as a regular se. I have all three and I've driven all of them and I can't tell the difference between them on the suspension, except the 12 se sport seems softer than the ti or se 201A. But that could be due to the 16" wheels and tires, the other two have 17's.

that's exactly what I thought too!

I have a 13 200A SFE I drove it home from dealer with the LRR steelies and tires on and thought wow how Firm it was but could have been the tires. Even after I swapped out for my 17 Inch Black Pack wheels & Tires It still was a firm setup which I like especially for getting on highway ramps a lot!
