I just had a conversation with one of their engineers about them.

Their HQ is 6 miles away from me.

FSD is great for DD'er. Sport for the AutoX'er or weekend racer.

Any idea of the difference between FSD and new Special Active, besides gold vs red paint job?

I love FSD on SAAB 9-5 with stock sports suspension, and wondering about match with Boxster with H&R 30mm lower than stock springs. It looks like no issues as long as I won't bottom out the suspension and hit bump stop?

From what Iíve read the Special Actives are the FSDís rebranded basically.

QC, which Bilsteins were you running? I was looking at the B12 setups as a possibility as the lowering range is fairly minimal. I need to look into the Feals
