    Springs spring, dampers damp, and so on.

    Adjustable dampers cannot make springs stiffer, nor can they make springs softer.

    Re: Resale value dropping like a rock!

    You only eat the depreciation when you sell. The cure is to own the vehicle longer. It's not gonna keep dropping like this for long- it can't.

    I don't know the names of the various dark blue colors, but I'd like to see a pic of one like mine, except in one of the various 2013+ dark blue colors.

    Making a fair market value offer is not a "low ball". They're asking too much for the car.
