I find the ride is firmer on the base without adaptive suspension but it still very good. I would say that the F-Type has an excellent ride/handling trade off especially considering the weight. It...

My wife actually finds the ride in the F type to be much smoother than her JCW Mini. Her gripe is with the excessive G forces. Not so bad once she learned how to use the Jebus bars.

I agree, if you give the dealer the impression that you're serious, they'll probably let you do an extended test drive (like overnight or something). I love my F-type, but my wife won't ride in it...

The ride is great. Now it's stiffer than a sedan but it's supposed to be as a GT car. My wife and I have done numerous 500+ mile trips and never felt stiff or pain.

I honestly think you are being a little unreasonable. The car is a relatively low-volume supercar of its day. It is a late 1960s/early 1970s design. Your car had been under used and neglected for a...
