    any interest in an Ohlins Mechatronic semi-active damper setup?

    Ohlins just announced they will be marketing an aftermarket ECU to actively control the damping settings on their TTX range of dampers: http://www.ohlins.com/Checkpoint-Ohl...---the-future/

    So far they have just announced a setup for motorcycles, but the ECU controls five dampers, so for a car, it's just a matter of programming. Anyway, I was thinking about approaching KH Motorsport about putting together a setup for the Z8 (TTx46CS front and TTX36 rear). I was wondering if anyone else would in principle be interested (strength in numbers). I'm guessing we're talking about 12kUSD for the dampers, no idea about the ECU yet.

    It is certainly an interesting advance in the mysterious art of suspension tuning and control. I might like it on my bike, but I love the Alpina set up on my Z8 so much that I don't think I'd be inclined to change it out.
