Vogtland Sport lowering springs?

i have a 2012 550i, with DDC suspension. for the life of me, i cant find any REAL info or pictures of a F10 5 series with these springs, or reviews. i have these springs in my trunk ready to go on in the next few weeks when i can get the time, but i would really love to hear/see what im getting into. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY PICS OF THESE SPRINGS ON THE F10, OR FEEDBACK? LOWERING MEASUREMENTS? THANK YOU!!! On a side note, do DDC cars handle lowering springs better than the cars without due to the ability to firm up the shocks a bit? thanks!!!

I had these springs on my X5 and they were great. Iíve got the HR 1Ē drop springs and Iíve been thinking of trying the Vogtland springs to get a little more drop.

I have yet seen a single forum member install and review the Vogtland springs. most common springs used on the F10 platform is H&R and ACS
