    All,
    As some of you know, I'm a recent buyer of a new 2017 GT Vert (so Premium). Since I *purchased* overseas and took receipt in the US some of the details were a little unclear.

    Does this car have an adjustable suspension? Hmm, another similar question would be is the suspension magnetic?

    My impression from my overseas sales guy was that the suspension changed when I changed to Sport+. Perhaps that is not true... (if that's not true, then is the suspension the same in all modes, from rain to track?

    Hoping you guys shed some light on this... thanks!

    Unless you ordered magnetic suspension it does not adjust suspension in sport mode.
    And 2017's don't have magnetic suspension option.

    So, suspension is the same in all settings, no adjustment at all?

    Well, if he traveled back in time with a 20017 mustang, as his profile indicates, it should be adjustable. However, I'd be concerned if we are still driving gas powered cars 18,000 years from now.

    /sarcasm

    :D

    Yep, sorry, but it is only one setting. Sport+ will change throttle response and how aggressively traction and stability control kick in (allows you to have a little more playing than Normal mode), but does not touch suspension or exhaust.
