I'll echo MC's comments, it's not a massive difference, but it definitely is more compliant over imperfections in the road surface than the default mode.

I've installed the 2012 struts in my car and it's a big difference. Before I could not tell if it wasn't in comfort mode.

lol, I don't know about previous year GT-R's, but it sounds pretty bad!

my M5 with Dinan Stage 2 suspension (Eibach springs instead of Dinan springs) is less harsh in Sport mode than the 2012 in Comfort, lol.

Ill just get this out of the way. Own a 2010, drove a 2012 and a 2013. The only way you can tell theres a difference is if you have been a previous owner. The feel of the butt meter tells me its a slight difference. Yes you can feel the difference it is not as harsh. Im not sure how you would even measure it.

Those that say its night and day difference are smoking rocks. Let me put it this way, you will never get in the car, throw it in comfort mode and say "wow that is so comfortable." lol Its not a maybach. comfort mode is still by no means ultra comfy


Note to readers. I keep mine in R mode at all times

Always in R mode? Hope there are no bumps/potholes where you drive.

Area I live in, the city has a lot of money from tax payers. All tax payers dollars come in + taxes from 8 resorts. They have no schools in the entire city so almost. They spend all the money on road maintenance and police. Ridiculous amounts of lavish curb side landscaping. Roads are great


Freeway is comfort all the way, and by no means is it "comfy"

mmm that'd be nice. Anyone know if you can install the 2012 suspension components on a 2009 and have similar results?
Get your self the Pilot Super Sport tires. My 2010 rides better right now on R mode with the new PSS tires than Comfort mode with the Bridgestones.... and I mean noticeably better.
