Haha, the stock suspension does come very tight. If you're a thrill ride kind of guy, you'll love it. If you are more about a comfortable ride, then the suspension can be a little bit much. My mom (who is a car enthusiast), told me my car's suspension is like a roller coaster.
YA there is price to pay for performance, if your uncertain about the ride just test drive a honda around a few corners its softer an mushier and does not have the performance feel to it. (except for the SI which is 5-7 K more) Forte is stiffer but more masculine for sure.
