I saw them test that car on a show on the Speed chanel a month or two ago. It's really cool how it works.

Isnt that just road sensing suspension on the next level. Still cool I hope GM takes advantage of it and all.

Its taken like 20 something years to develop fully.....imagine the cost of replaceing parts....like all "active" suspensions I see this as the downfall.....and bose natrually has truely expensive items as it is............300 dollars headphones...comon

If it is well engineered though it is a very simple system and easy to fix but yeah you are right active suspensions are spendy. Now they need to come out with a never breaking suspension system.

If Wes chimes in....

We have a non Active Q45....but I remember hearing something like replaceing the active suspension can cost upwards of 3-4 thousand dollars....

While I think this is a very good "safety" feature I feel that the industry is trying to hide the fact that the driver is indeed driving a car......myself.....i wanna feel the road and know the limits of my car without this fancy crap intervining.....but thats not everyones feelings.....so they can feel free to pay 10 grand for this option

It's not so major on safety IMO but really good with ride quality and greatly increased handleing which I guess does improve safety.

When I hear Bose, I think expensive, but good quality. So it's gonna cost a fortune and be really cool. And gonna cost me a ton to fix when I get a used one in like 8 years. Mixed blessing.

Bose sucks!

The active suspension on the Q isnt too bad to maintain thanks to certain people who can rebuild components for cheap.
