H&R Spring

I have a 435i xdrive msport with edc. If I put the springs on will I lose my edc? How's the ride quality?

I just got H&R super sports installed and the ride quality feels the same to me. I don't normally drive my car too hard anyways. Mine is rwd with no EDC. I posted a pic and a thread yesterday

According to my dealer, you will not loose EDC but depends how much you lower the car. my dealer says 15-20mm is acceptable and also within warranty from BMW.

But I also have same question as you, how is the ride quality with X-Drive....

Ive been temping to get HR springs but just the sport. The reviews Ive read were all mixed, deciding on this, mperformance suspension, KW V1. Obviously the HR springs are the less expensive option, but wondering how the ride is going to be.

I might just bite the bullet and do it, cant stand the stock ride height.

I know that feeling bro... I'm in Colorado. I would have jumped on the M4 if it wasn't for the winters here.

Do you have EDC on the car? I guess soft is better than hard and bumpy right? haha
