Congrats on the new suspension setup. Were you equipped with EDC previously?

Ah, it seems they're including their own EDC control module in that picture.

So wait... if you buy PSS10's now it comes with the EDC module to disable that annoying warning message on the dash?

I doubt it - only solutions I've seen are the KW Code Isolators or the Macht Schnell Emulation module. The module pictured is likely a controller exclusive to the suspension and will not communicate with the vehicle in any way.

Might be worth giving Turner a call to be 100% sure.

I was interested getting the PSS10, but I talked to quite a few people in their company and no one knew the spring rates... until today...

Front Springs: 515lb/in
Rear Springs: 570lb/in

And the rates seem a little odd to me...

well pulled up the website:

"It's Here! Turner motorsport is the first to offer the long awaited Bilstein B16 kit, featuring a cockpit mounted control. Keep it in "normal" mode for everyday driving and commuting. Switch to "Sport" mode and firm the suspension up and push the car to the limits. This is the perfect suspension for a dual purpose car that is used for both everyday driving and agressive street or track use! The kit features an electronic control unit that senses road characteristics and G-loads and makes shock valving changes in a millisecond! Included is a lighted aluminum cockpit mounted control button, so no need to get out of the car to adjust suspension settings! "

So its for non M and its like what tom had said, its their own controller

Rode in a student's 911 Turbo last weekend with PSS10s that were hooked up to the OEM shock adjustment. Pretty nice. Would be nice to have an option like this for EDC.

In France Bilsteins PSS10 for M3 E92 = 2000 € Included taxes = 2925 $

It's probably rated in Kg/mm, which is what the rest of the World uses?

the data is from an email from Bilstein's west region sales manager. I think he wouldn't mistype something like this...

I mean you'd have to convert the english measurements to metric, which will likely be a rounder number.

PSS10s are awesome. I would suggest it to everyone.

V3s have more adjustable settings but I think its bullshit since I am not going over to my shop every other day to do adjusting or minor teaks I like them to come with a nice firm stiffness.

I got PSS10s and used a EDC emulator from KW and it works wonders.
