Using my 2015 GS300h today.Suspension seems all-round firmer than usual. AllI I’ve done is wash it yesterday!   Could it be an adjustable system that has self adjusted?  Apologies for maybe a naive question. Can't find Anything on suspension in handbook.

Does your vehicle have AVS? If not then there is nothing that is adjustable. If it does then it should only be noticeable stiffer in Sport+ mode.

Did you (over)inflate your tyres yesterday?

Thanks Colin. Didn’t inflate tyres. AVS (Adjustable vehicle suspension?) How wouldI find  out if the car has that?

If you look in the engine bay you will have servos on top of the suspension struts which control the dampening if you have AVS.

Thanks again Colin. That's really. Helpful..  No, just  plain boring, simple tops to the suspension struts.  Quick response was much appreciated..

Environmental temperature? (shock oil temperature matters)

Tyre pressures? Under-inflation can also make the car "seem" stiffer in some situations.

Thanks for this suggestion Lwerewolf.  You may have hit on the solution,  temperature.
