Yes, I'm very aware of the potential 'conflict of interest' from manufacturers like Bilstein, H&R, Koni, etc., when asking for an official answer about adaptability with EDC from the companies themselves, it's akin to asking for an official answer from BMW re: installation of aftermarket components.....but we're not asking about suitability, "if the springs will work with the system" we are asking specific functionality questions of individual components within the system.

I vehemently disagree with your statement about there being "a serious question of expertise."

I would venture to say that Bilstein or Koni engineers are competent and could provide valuable information in regards to the specific questions put forth by jm.
