Default Soften my S5 ride please

My S5 is very quick but I miss the soft comfort of my old TT such that whilst slower it was so much more enjoyable as a 'fast' car.

I have 20" alloys and it's been lowered a few cm with some (probably) stiffer eibach springs installed by original owner.

I do NOT want to sell it or get a new car..What can I do to soften the ride? Any advice on what springs to buy or what dampers to buy?

I will consider smaller wheels if I really must as a last resort but I really like the look of 20s so would definitely not go smaller than 19s.

Thanks in advance for any helpful replies!

Let me guess... It’s loud too, right?

Like roared noise coming from the wheels, loud?

I just put brand new Michelin Sports on mine and it’s still loud.
On top of that our roads here in the Seattle area are rough. Not like potholes, but more like REAL gritty heavy texture rough.
Literally can NOT talk on the phone (BT) while on the freeway.
People ask if I’m at the airport?
Fast, but not quiet and comfy by any means.

But as a good friend once said, “Do you love the car?”
Hell yes!
”Well, there’s always a trade off!”

I'm also in Seattle and can relate to the fact that no matter what Bluetooth option I explore - no one can hear me past the roaring of the road. But I love the car...
