- Forgive me but I'm not 100% clear on your start situation shock wise, but I do like to better understand this:
Your US M3 came with OEM regular EDC option, but then how are the non EDC shocks related?
Without EDC but with EDC control module? Is this the state of a JDM M3? Imported?
Neither. My USDM M3 came with stock EDC shocks, which I upgraded to USDM ZCP EDC shocks. I had EDC before the retrofit, and I retained it after the retrofit.
MY08+ JDM shocks (EDC) are the same shocks as MY10 M3 Edition shocks, and MY11+ ZCP shocks. MY08+ JDM M3s also come with non-EDC shocks, and I believe those are the same shocks now being used on the 1M.
Regarding signals between the EDC control module and the struts themselves, your best bet would be to PM rldzhao and technic, our forum's suspension and electronics gurus, respectively.
