Question type: General

I'm not sure why, but I'm second guessing not upgrading to the GT and getting the 19" wheels.  So, I'm looking for some input . . .  Did I mess-up or are the 17" wheels the smoother ride?  Also, the leather seats?  Super nice touch or stick with the cloth, they're more comfortable.

the 19" wheels will have a rougher ride because of the shorter sidewall on the tire.

When I test drove both cars, I went with the Grand Touring 4 wheel drive with the 19" wheels, sunroof, leather, heated seats, nav system, etc. In my opinion, the 19" wheels gave me a better ride, especially on local roads. Also, having the Leather (and heated seats), made the automobile more luxurious. Having the leather seats, steering wheel and all really made the car's interior. I wouldn't have had it otherwise. And after owning the car for 1.5 years now - and taken it from Maryland to Montana/Colorado/New Mexico and back, it was a distinct pleasure to drive. Very comfortable, Great handling, took inclines like they were nothing, and so comfortable, especially with automatic adjusting of seats, it was a definite pleasure to drive.
