ZCP rates are 195 for front and 650 for rear- this is what I have read on this forum where a ZCP owner has measured this.

AFe has come out with a HAS option with promising specs.

Excerpt below is from AFe's product page. Note the spring rates which put these between the OEM CP and Swift Spec-R’s.


https://afepower.com/afe-control-var...height-springs


aFe Control would like to introduce the Variable Height Springs (VHS) for the 2014-2016 BMW M2/M3/M4 (F80/82/83/87) chassis.

The VHS system was developed for enthusiasts who desire the ride height adjustability of a coil over while still retaining their OEM adaptive factory shock absorbers. The system features slip on coil over sleeves for the front struts that are TIG welded, and zinc plated for maximum durability.

Installation is simple, just press off the factory spring seat and replace with the aFe Control VHS. The system includes mounts for the OEM accelerometers and sway bar. M specific front springs are included and feature a progressive 224 lb/in" rate while offering 0.5 “ to 1.5 “ of lowering.

In the rear, CNC machined 6061-T6 aluminum ride height adjusters also offer 0.5 “ to 1.5 “ of lowering and maintain the factory spring location for quiet operation and strength. The 700 lb/in" rear springs were developed specifically for this application to maintain proper balance with the adaptive ride shocks.

Elevate your driving experience with the comfort, precision and excitement of the aFe Control Variable Height Springs (VHS).

Also Fits: BMW M2/M3/M4 F80/82/83-87 14-16 non adaptive ride

Give me a link to an actual product or review of one on this forum. I went searching for it on the website you posted. There is only a link to springs for "M3" with no description. There is no clarification on whether it's for an M3 E30, E36, E46, E90/92, or F80/82. All their other springs include the chassis code.
