All coil overs. And yes, it was quite possibly the most expensive suspension setups I've seen in a while lol. Hell, between all the sensors, bags, stuts, compressors, and controllers it was easily over 6k in parts lol. Glad to see it go.
Bottom line, pretty much parallels what you said ^^^, is that they are awesome cars, awesome AWD, good looks, engineering marvel, but stoooopid expensive ROFL!
current rides (my wife and I):
2002 Volvo V70 XC Cross Country Wagon, 2004 Volvo V70R, 1985 Buick Regal Grand National, and My Desk.
