Yes, I did say that. The G80 sport AWD came with adaptive control suspension, no reason to butcher it with lowering springs, I prefer ride quality over look. Since G80's springs are ~10% stiffer, the ride if just fine, reminds me of my e39 540i/6 sport package.
Do you know if the 10% stiffer springs from the G80 Sport will fit on a 2015 Genesis 5.0 ultimate?

That is why I love the new 3.3 twin turbo engine!!! A tune bring HP numbers to about the same as the 5.0 V8 and adds over 100 ft/lb of torque. That is insane!!! Plus, even in stock form the turbo engine's torque is much lower in the rpm band than the 5.0 V8 which give it the same 0-60 with less HP and with the same amount of torque as the V8. Very nice.:)

Correction: I see that the similar 0-60 runs in stock form is from a rear axle ratio change from the 5.0 V8's 3.54:1 to the 3.3TT V6's 3.91:1.
I was assuming that extra low end torque was the reason.

However, I wonder if the 0-60 time will change much with the tune since extra torque only goes so far to increase performance. Think diesel engines that can make 400 ft/lbs but only about 200 hp and are slow are crap. However, the extra HP should be good for shaving about 1/2 a second off the 0-60 I bet.

What is the max torque rating for the 8 speed automatic? Can the automatic transmission handle an additional 100 ft/lbs of torque?
