You should have the AVS option on the 450h as standard, I presume, so how have you found the set-up with the Sport mode engaged?
Too firm now, or still fairly compliant?

It's definitely firm and nothing like before, I haven't tried comfort as I'm scared I'm gonna rub on bumps. I will say I took it out today and everything was tighter the feel and response, but I felt the potholes and small bumps more.

Only because the comfort mode is suppose to be a softer ride which would allow the shocks hit more but again I was told I wont but I'm worried it could happen.

So I figured I might as well make this my F-Sport build thread as I think this will be mostly F-Sport stuff. I'm getting the calipers re-painted to blue and I'm ordering the F-sport full face wheels.

Technically it would not void your warranty just that your struts would not be covered, as they are not meant for the Hybrid GS.
