What I observe that determines the ride quality significantly on our PSC2s are tire pressures. If you live in hot weather environment like me in Singapore, make sure you put your tire pressure 2-3PSI below Target hot pressure as if your front starts cold at 26-27 PSI, it will be 29-30 PSI hot which gives you good grip, good ride (not too stiff) and even tire wear. If you start 29-30PSI cold, you will end up 33PSI hot which results in a much firmer ride. This goes the same for the rear.

Overall, I feel added nimblesnes upon turn in but a more lighter nose, especially upon acceleration when suspension is on normal mode. I assume the rebound and compression of the suspension tuned for the weight of the stock wheels resulted in this. The rebound however was much better when I put the suspension on sports mode. Moving ahead, I plan to leave it in sports for daily driving.

Overall, car feels light on its feet and braking feels improved, Happy with the purchase.

they look great! Is this the same wheel as in 2/3rs bbs mag from factory?

What was the price?

No, these are the 6-spoke version made in the GT3 sizes (RS sizes are larger and have 7 spokes and slightly different spoke design). Price is a bit under $20k if I remember correctly - available here:

Since you're in Europe, you may have easier time buying here:
