    Adaptive Dynamics and ride quality

    Adaptive Dynamics sounds like a must-have on my order, but I have not driven a D5 with it. I've only driven a SE on 20" wheels.

    I found the RRS Dynamics very capable, especially the PHEV with its instant torque. I'm assuming from that and the LR brochure detail that a D5 will be much flatter in cornering with this option.

    For anyone that has driven both, especially on the same wheels, is there any negative to Adaptive Dynamics - does it make any difference to ride quality? I'll be ticking the box on a HSE Lux on standard 21s.

    Any info, much appreciated. I wouldn't be exploring this in such detail if I wasn't kicking my heels waiting for Portofino Blue to be available so that I can sign off my order (again) Very Happy

    I've driven both on 20"
    There's a significant difference.

    I understand that AD is configurable on RRS
    It's not configurable on D5 in fact you can't turn it on and off which would allow you to feel the difference.

    Thanks Dodlestonian, Is that for the worse or for the better? As you specced it, I guess you preferred it? Smile

    I don't notice much difference if you drive sedately but It's definitely a nicer drive when you put your foot down, it drives like a smaller car.

    Thanks...that's just what I was hoping - still a loping, comfy Disco at slow speeds, but a bit less head toss on a winding but quick A-road.
