I picked up my 410 today, wahay!  The mean streets of Salisbury Plain are not in the best of condition at the moment (or at any time come to think of it).

i would like to experiment with softening off the dampers, would I be right in thinking that it is the low speed damping that will have the greatest effect on ride quality?

thanks

Gareth

Yep, compression adjustment is on the remote reservoirs, not sure if you can get to the rebound adjusters

You can do front rebound with the car on the ground, rear is difficult without jacking up the car 

Ye, you can do the fronts with the wheels on full lock. I have slim wrists and hands and can do the rears reaching through the rear wheels just below the rear caliper, with a bit of playing aroun

Twiddle completed, 2 clicks softer high speed compression front and rear from the recommended road settings has calmed the car down, feels much more composed on our dodgy roads.

They were the stock settings from the handbook, but with high speed compression softened by 2 clicks, from memory the rears were full soft and the fronts 2 from full soft,  you’ll also need to reset the low speed compression because the adjusters move when high speed compression is adjusted.
