Default F10 lowering springs

I have a 2014 f10 535d that has adaptive dampers (VDC) so sits quiet high compared to M Sport suspension (roughly same height as SE set up).

I'd like to get it lowered without affecting the adaptive dampers which are handy. From what I can see, the Eibach pro kit will lower it to a similar height to m sport, maybe 5mm lower. Will this set up go with the adaptive dampers?

I had a 2012 520d m-sport and fitted a pro-kit and the car dropped about 20mm more than a standard m-sport.

Oh that is quiet lower than what they state. They claim a 30mm drop from standard suspension height, not M sport. Looks well in fairness.

How did you find the ride afterwards?

Massive improvement and that was going to 20" wheels as well.
