Help First 6 weeks with G

Hallo all,

After 4 and a half years with my 159 sw I finally changed to a G. 2011 Veloce 170 ma on sports pack with 18" turbines and P zeros. First off, what a unit, pulls well, great torque. Like the looks, good chassis and equipment.
But the ride! Oh my. Smooth roads fine, really good stickability, reasonably quiet. On anything with lumps and bumps, which is most lets face it, the G becomes twitchy and hard. Don't think I can live every day with it.
So I was thinking, and many of you won't like this, of changing springs first to standard Veloce and maybe if needed to standard shocks if need be.
Be grateful for any input.

Worth a search for suspension mods (Bilstein B6 REVIEW)
For example . I've got a Lusso on 18" alloys and never experienced the hard suspension but the subject is discussed in the Giulietta forum ...
