Hello, I recently traded my '98 W210 E250 for the 2000 W210 E220 CDI. Hence the comparison... Are there major changes in the suspension setup between the upgrade? I find the ride much firmer/harder on the 2000 E220 CDI compared to the '98 E250. Is this normal or is there somehting amiss with the car I purchased? Also, the E220 CDI has Good Year tyres (standard issue) and they are exptremely 'noisy'! Slapping sound when crossing road strips. Could the tyres be the reason for the harder ride quality? Your opinions...Thanks in advance.
