Experiences with lowering springs?

I want to lower the car with either H&R Springs or Hartge. My question is what effect or any effect does it have with the EDC in the car. When you engage between the cofmort and sport settings in the damping, does it change or have any effect with aftermarket lowering springs. Does the EDC still work? Does its still go from softer to harder? thanks.

Subject has been covered numerous times, but a simple answer; yes EDC will still work with different springs only. It seems Hartge gives a more oem type of ride, and H&R is a lot stiffer.

Drove in both RDSport and H&R and RD Sport is better. Haven't had a chance to drive on Hartge

H&R springs look great but, I seriously have to watch out for road undulations and potholes here in Beantown.
