Question How to tell if your car has EDC?

I'm trying to identify if my car has EDC as I am planning to put on KW v1. I did some search, some ppl said to find running cable (for edc) to the shock, but seems like I couldn't find the cable, so I took a picture of my front shocks. Note that my car is 2012 520i. Can anyone tell if my car has EDC or not?



I'm also looking to kw v1 from a member on local forums, but the part umber on box is different from kw website. On kw website, parts# 102-20-080. Is it possible that the asian version has different parts number? Since 520i is not available in the states.

That box says spring set, not coilovers.
If you don't have any cables connected to your dampers you don't have edc.

I have never heard reviews of Kw springs set yet, only their coilovers. Any pro or cons between kw spring or let say eibach pro-kit ?

My e60 M5 had EDC and there was a wire that plugged into the top of the shock.

OP do you have this option in your car? My understanding EDC is a $1000 option. You should be able to check your VIN if you are not sure on your options.

If I'm not mistaken, if you look at the caps of your shock towers, you should see a cap connection with wire lead attached.
