I live in Los Angeles where the roads are just terrible. The XC90 sport ride quality is pretty punishing. I know that the XC90 sport has a stiffer suspension than the standard XC90, but I imagine that the 19" wheels don't help. Has anyone considered reducing the tire size on the sport to 18" or 17"? Does anyone know if the brake calipers on the sport are identical to the standard XC90?<p>I would have gotten the standard XC90, but the sport seats were so much more comfortable.<p>As Jeremy Clarkson from Top Gear, who is on his third XC90 stated:<p>"Just don’t do what I’ve just done and buy the “sport” version. Because fitting an XC90 with hard suspension and chunky alloy wheels may make it look good but it will ruin the ride. I’ve been in more comfortable jet fighters."<p>In the end he still loves it:<p>"Other versions, though, are just epic. People think this car has become such a common sight on the road because it is part of the private school uniform. That may be so. But there’s another, bigger reason. It is by far the best of all the school-run-mobiles because there really is room for seven people, 14 legs and two dogs in the boot as well. No other car maker — and this is strange — has managed to pull off a similar trick without ending up with a bus. "
