I have EDC suspension on this car. Its is slightly stiffer than stock springs but having Comfort/Sport modes helps when i go from casual highway to mtn roads. It does not get as stiff as my E60 on BC Coilovers, so i wouldnt suggest using these springs on the lowest height if you plan to do some track racing or auto-x

What kind of wheels are those? Car looks great. Wish they had these adjustables out when I ordered my springs a while back.

Being as both set-ups are basically in the same ballpark cost wise and the adjustable HR springs and the BC Coilovers, which set-up do you like better for everyday use and spirited highway driving?

The coils with "no" EDC function or the springs "retaining" the EDC function.

Did you miss the EDC function with the coilovers or did the ride/handling make up for the loss of the EDC?

My E60 did not have EDC, but I do have the BC coilovers installed on there and set the dampening to a mild position.

I prefer the BC coilovers on my E60 over the H&R adjustable on the F10 with EDC. My next setup may be to delete the EDC and run full coilovers.

Would you care to share why you prefer the coilovers over the springs?
