    Strange question. Is it your first time driving on English roads?

        Welcome :)

        Seems to be a common complaint of the S550, plenty of upgrades available to improve it.

              None of the modes alter the suspension settings (as far as I am aware) , they just change the way the engine and gearbox respond and the weight of the steering along with different stability programs.

              I can only think a set of progressive springs with minimal drop may be what you are looking for as from what I read changing to progressive springs does soften the ride unless you are cornering hard at which point the spring rate alters to harden the suspension up. I run a set of linear lowering springs and though the ride is pretty firm I have experienced much worse and the car still rides fine as a daily despite the crap roads in Kent....

                none of the setting adjust suspension unless its a 2018 with magna ride


                the standard uk version s550 gets the US performance pak as standard which is harsher than the basic setup.
                I have eibach pro springs on mine and it not an issue but then again I didn't think the stock ones are particularly harsh . used to Audi S line sports so felt about the same lol .
                some people have gone to the basic spring setup up from the states the model we don't get .I do believe Gt101 in Colchester have done this before .
                give them a call
