I'm pretty sure it's just a module that's added on to make it compatible. You should be fine, and you'll be able to sell the module on here without a problem.

FYI - Warranty on those isn't transferable via multiple owners so in that respect you might wanna look into buying a new one. GL

Front will be fine. However, the rear shock shaft stem (the threaded part) is skinnier on the non-EDC vs EDC.

Yes they fit, but you wouldn't need the "edc module"

It will fit but the spring/shock rates are going to be different. The ride will most likely not be like you are expecting.

I would advise against mixing and matching.

Any idea on what part would need to be changed out to make it fit? Maybe one of the parts in this pic from REAL OEM would help the conversion?

You will be totally fine. As CarbonAlpine states, the EDC Code isolators will not be required in non-EDC environments.

A new rear shock mount is needed, there are EDC and non-EDC specific versions available from your BMW parts counter.
