Yeah, good move going for the Xcellence.

FR appears to have a useless 'extra super hard' setting that nobody used, like Porsche's PASM (soft setting only!!)

Xcellence has useful features and an armrest.

I'm at a loss as to why anybody buys an FR!?

Anybody?

Some people prefer the sportier styling on the FR. Mechanically, it’s identical to the other models (apart from the adaptive suspension on the FR Sport).

I doubt any FR owners chose the FR believing it would actually be sportier than the other models. I suspect they all chose it simply because they preferred the look.

I’m glad I chose the XLux. I prefer the look of the FR but wasn’t willing to compromise on features.

Each to their own basically, it’s a brilliant car regardless. :)

I like the sport suspension, feels like a go kart when you turn it on. :D

Can anybody tell me how you change the adaptive suspension settings on an FR sport? I can’t seem to find that option anywhere? Or is it automatically done by changing the drive profile from eco to sport say?

Thanks for the help
