Have your cars got adaptive suspension? Mine has, I always wondered that why it isn’t quite as low as some I’ve seen. Either way I’m happy with the ride height

You're right, but ultimately I saw so many 19' F20 that I wanted to give 19' wheels a try, and I have to admit that I'm not desappointed.
Ride is more or less the same. I would say 5% stiffer.

My dream is 19' ultraleggeras but they are too expensive for me for the moment...

I’d neeed to have a go in 1 with 19”a before parting with cash , a lot of the roads are pretty bad here so based on comfort the 18s are perfect , however the 19s do look very good
