Lowering 650i but keeping factory EDC/adaptive dampening control

I have been wanting to lower my 6 series however thought about the factory EDC that will be effected once lowered. As of now, I only know two items that would keep the factory EDC active and that is the H&R lowering springs and the KW height adjustable spring kit. Because of wanting to keep the adaptive dampening control, I had to avoid coilovers and air suspension and also heard that Eibach lowering springs triggered sensors to go off?

Was hoping I could get some insight from those who knows more or who has lowered their cars!

Yes I know I can manually dampen the suspension however I do like the pleasure of switching from comfort mode to sport mode with a touch of a button. I posted the link for the KW suspension kit below.

Yep get the Eibach (less drop, softer ride) or H&R (more drop, stiffer ride) neither causes any "sensors" they're just springs

I have the H&R VTF. It's coil over springs that retain the EDC. It does not cause my height sensors (name?) to go off.

How much of a drop compared to stock? Also how much stiffer than stock on the first springs you mentioned?
