I’ve always sort of thought Virginia hates cars, or perhaps drivers. It’s a front license plate state.

We’ll be honest, we’ve been a bit skeptical of the drivability of aftermarket air suspensions. There’s no denying the trend for such setups is exploding or that cars on the market like the new A4 allroad make installation of such setups even more intriguing. Even still, driving videos by early adopters showing cars bouncing over expansion joints have caused us to take a cautious approach. It seems AccuAir aims to dispel such stereotypes though and as such they’ve recently lent their air ride equipped B8 Audi S4 to Matt Farah of The Smoking Tire. More…
