    Default Retrofit of Ďcomfortí suspension.

    Has anyone heard of whether itís possible to retrofit the new comfort shockers system to any existing CitroŽn?.

    ESP may be coded differently for the different suspension response even if the mechanicals do allow it to bolt up. Maybe, that wouldn't make any practical difference? You'd want to check whether the body mount points and suspension arms are the same parts or somehow specific the comfort suspension.

    Letís hope it can be done relatively easily as ride is much more important to us than when we were much younger.
    (I was hoping the C3 Aircross was going to have that suspension but unfortunately itís apparently reserved for bigger metal.
    No 130hp or EAT8 either.....seems only for the bigger again)

    Get a hydraulic citroen, doesn't get any more comfortable than that. Comfort spheres are available but with everything working properly these should not be needed. Find someone near you & go for a drive, I find I do not get tired driving, one unlike every other car I have had.

    Yes a c5 would be the way to go but not if you want a new car

    Once youíve succumbed to 360* cameras, blind spot monitoring, keyless, stop/start, amazingly economical big short adaptable car like the underestimated C4P, only the anticipated C5 Aircross beckons as an alternative.
    It does have the comfort suspension .
