I'm currently looking at buying a 159 and unfortunately funds don't extend to a ti.
Having driven a Lusso, I found that there was an amount of body roll and am considering upgrading the suspension as and when funds permit. I like the idea of keeping everything OEM so upgrading the suspension to that used in ti models looks like a solution.

Having searched through here on this the suggestion is that the only change to the suspension on ti models are shorter springs.

Does anyone know if this is definite?

Thanks

forget getting the TI springs.
there are much better and cheaper alternatives to that and if you really want a better ride than TI offers get some ajustable coilovers.

Thanks for the response toshy.

I really am keen to stick to OEM parts and don't want to drop the car to the ground.

So do you know what changes were made for the TI suspension?

thanks

I have a Ti. The dampers are the same length but the springs are shorter and uprated. I have heard that the dampers were re-valved but ePer doesn't confirm this:confused: Either way, it's sharper and rolls less than a standard 159 (not that a 159 is poor in the first place) and the ride, even on the massive wheels, is still excellent:D
