The nice thing about the "magnetic shocks" is that they change both the "compression" and the "rebound" stiffness. Depending on the "driver control," that may allow a true "comfort setting" for city streets. Although the KONI Yellows are adjustable in rebound, they are fixed in compression. And, their compression stiffness is much greater then a stock GT. So the "street ride" gets rougher, even with "rebound" set to maximum soft.

My new 2015 Challenger SRT 392 has fully adjustable dampers (compression and rebound) from the computer screen in the cabin (Street, Sport, Track). Because the compression is also adjusted for "Street," it has a really comfortable street ride. On "Track," it is really hugging the road - and expecting a rather smooth surface. Sport is in between. So I think the "magnetic ride" could be a nice improvement over KONI Yellows for people that primarily drive their Mustangs on "real city streets" - like I do my 2015 Challenger SRT 392.
