how do you adjust the rear dampers?

I'm assuming you adjust the front dampers from the top, please correct me if I'm wrong.

About $350 on the F10, apparently the back seats need to come out to reach the rear mounting points.

No need to remove rear seats...just the speakers grill only.

yeah, i want to get rid of orange reflectors.
im thinking about Dinan S2 tune and exhaust, we'll see.
i want to dump my camaro and replace it with another GTR/SL63/?? so thinking about leaving 550i alone so it can be my quiet cruiser when i get tired of loud and harsh sports car.

quick (stupid) question to all the pros out there - how do I know if my car has the self leveling suspension or adaptive drive? Also with these coilovers - will bigger wheels rub? I had to roll the fenders on my E60 before I sold it and really dont feel like doing that on this new beauty I got

Do you know if this coilover will work for the M-sport models?

TIA

I thought the M-sport has dynamic suspension, does it effect it at all?

Thanks

afaik, dynamic suspension is a separate option that is available on either m-sport and non msport cars.
