    I think you'll find the handling isn't a huge improvement, it's just the ability to raise/lower your car at will that's the big feature. It's definatelly more show than go.

    There is a huge difference between what's considered to be 'airbag suspension' and the polyair bags, the polyair bags are only used in conjunction with springs (they sit inside), and they are used to increase the load capacity. Whereas the airbag suspension that all the show cars have do not have springs, it's just the airbags, hence why there is a 2 or 3 thousand dollar difference between to the two.
