But the EDC on the E90 M3 wasn't constantly changing every moment from one setting to another as I recall. It was like soft, normal or hard manually with one push on the button.

M3 lists the option as EDC-C, which is the continuous adaption system. The switching just sets the working parameters for each level.

BMW's Electronic Damper Control with continuous action (EDC-C) is a fully automatic system adjusting the dampers to every situation on the road. Sensors determine road conditions and the driver's style of motoring, micro-processors evaluate the data and choose the appropriate damper setting between "soft" and "hard". In addition, the driver can manually preselect either a comfortable or a sporting control mode.
Looking at a bit more information it appears the M3 has not got the EDC-C that is often put against the spec', but EDC-K, which works to a different set of parameters.

The driver can choose between three settings, the controlled programs "Comfort" and "Normal", or the uncontrolled fixed setting "Sport".
Now does this mean the F30 gets the option of a similar M-sport adaptive damping system, with the "uncontrolled" sport setting?

That is what we need to establish, I believe.
