I have a 718 Base Boxster with 20” wheels and the ride and handling are superb on smooth or rough roads. I’ve never driven a 718 with PASM though to compare. I think you’ll find the regular suspension to be great compared to just about any other sports car out there. In fact, I was amazed at how well the car road while still having flat cornering and top notch handling.I'm leaning toward 20" wheels. Any experience with 20" wheels WITHOUT PASM, or is PASM a must in that case?
No, i meant to say that stock suspension is in between the soft/stiff modes of PASM.Good stuff! That last comment is quite interesting. So the stock stiffness setup is in between the two PASM/S-PASM settings. I think I've read that PASM is a must with 20" wheels (shorter sidewall.) Perhaps that's the reason! Thanks.
Yup, you assumed correct. Im currently waiting for my order and this is my first Porsche. I went with PASM so i appreciate your words of experience.(kaffeinski has) no experience with driving a Porsche around town that is 20mm lower than stock. The standard PASM at 10mm lower is a good compromise and offers a reasonably comfortable ride with 20" wheels and the "comfort tire pressure". Even with that I have to slow on entering and exiting driveways, typically do so at an angle so only one wheel at a time comes off the rain bump. Anyway that's my opinion. Hope it helps!
