KW vs RDS vs ACS

I am currently in a 550 w/ edc. Shopping options for suspension. I have gotten many recs for each. My first priority is ride quality. I know the prices for the kw, acs, and rds are significantly different. But want opinions on quality relative to value. Any takers on this topic?

I thought just the errors on the dash was fixed, not the adjustment damping that comes from the comfort to sport settings.

i think that the edc delete only affect the suspension and dampening and not the drivetrain or throttle response. Ill find out more info and get back to you.

You will lose the dampening control when you install your KW coilovers.

KW?

I have a new F10 528i, is there a KW setup that will allow me to keep my sport mode, comfort + and Econ modes? The last thing I want is to have a dashboard full of lights on a new car..

Teky.

If you get the edc delete module you will have no error lights. However your edc will be disabled. Ride quality on KW's are superior and very close to a stock feeling (a bit stiffer).
