Can u guys describe in more detail the difference between w and w/I electronic damping control? How does it work? Does that depend on what susp we ordered from the factory?

Super stoked on these!

The EDC module is simply a deactivation kit that eliminates any dash warnings regarding the loss of the factory electronic dampening control.

to what degree will these coils effect the electronic dampening suspension quality?

It completely eliminates the electronic adjustment and replaces it with the ability to manually adjust the dampers using the knobs you see pictured.

Wow, it's amazing how quickly the manufacturers come out with these products to be first out in the market...

But, and I hate to be the downer here...it makes you think how much time/quality goes into making these things and the R&D done to ensure they perform better, provide better handling and control and better quality....and all in the short months the vehicle has been out.

Hmmmmm....

FWIW, I run the KW V3's on my E90 335 and they are fantastic. They creak and groan a bit during the first block or two when they've been sitting for a while, but do a great job of firming up the ride without jarring my fillings loose.

A company like KW has probably got a pretty good idea what's going to work before they fit the first set to the new model.

Gawd, so incredibly gorgeous from the side and back, until you see the front end. The front just kills it, who ever was in charge of designing the f30 and or e90 front end should be flogged.

Running the v2 on my e90 and the v3 on the my late z4m. They have the best ride for the streets hands down. Although I'd much appreciate it if they would update to a mono tube vs their antiquated twin tube shock design. Meh, but what do I know, they're the ones with access to a shock dyno

Anybody, know why they stuck with twin tubes?
