I'm not sure if it makes it better or worse that they're putting this on very expensive cars because it seems cheap-ish to me.

Like a carnival trick.
the concept gives that impression, but after trying a car equipped with it one sees that it's very well made and it's not as obscene as you think it is.
i believe that technology is there to help us move forward and we can't consider each improvement made as a stain to the brand image.

for example i don't see too many people complaining that the nowadays sportscars are also comfortable to drive, if it were to remain truth to the classic sportscar image every time you passed a hole in the ground a wheel would fall off or you could strain your neck...
