Many reviews have mentioned the Öhlin Dampers as being extremely firm at the factory default lever. Furthermore, the 22-settings can only be adjusted by a manual dial at each wheel location with the rears being fairly accessible, but the front ones very difficult unless the car is elevated.

The roads around the San Francisco area are terrible and a stiff riding suspension will probably be a daily driving comfort issue if the reviews are accurate. Given the adjustments have to be done by the dealer (I cannot jack up the car easily), does it make sense to ask the dealer to set them to a softer setting at delivery and then decide if you want them more firm later? The dealer and service network is just getting set up so who knows if it's easy or a real pain to handle any adjustments later.

I need the car be family-friendly, but like the look of the PP so need to find a balance. Any insights?
Try this maybe?

Look up non poleatar reviews of ohlins dfv dampers on YouTube.

I test drove a pp the other day the the ride in my mind was fine. Apparently set to 11.
They are good dampers and in my mind the reviewers are over stating how stiff they are.
