H&R Lowering Sport Springs for F10 535i with DHP

Has anyone installed lowering springs on a f10 535i with dhp?

Worth it?

Possible to do coilovers, but keep the full EDC functions?

There are quite a few that have done it, myself included. Nothing out of the ordinary.
I ran that very setup on my F10 w/ adaptive suspension (DHP) for about 30K miles.

Too bad you're too far away, otherwise I'd sell you my setup.

Just put the HR springs on a few days ago and also have the adaptive suspension. Seems to be working very well so far. No rubbing and less body roll in corners. Hasn't ruined the ride but def tightened it up a bit. It looks as it should when coming from the factory now in my opinion.

I have it on mine as well. It still works like a charm. From what Ive read, coil-overs remove that function.

Before putting springs, highly recommend getting the dinan shockware. It def improves the overall feel with much less body roll in turn ins. If that doesn’t suffice then go for springs. Springs and shockware together will probably provided the best feel.

Install with DHP?

Does having DHP change the install compared to a sport or regular suspension f10? Cant seem to find any install guides with DHP.

i'm considering H&R springs more for asthetics, to lower the car 1-1.5 inches. Has anyone seen any unusual tire wear?

You shouldnt have bad tire wear with a good alignment after. Only time you would is if you have other suspension components that are wearing out.
