Yes, the rebound damping will be adjustable and these can also handle lowering and stiffer springs.

V1 has no damping adjustments at all. These Koni's will outperform the V1 struts and shocks.

Koni is a better damper out of the block, when mated with proper sport springs the ride will be stock like with more control.

Which would you say are the best springs to match, as well as providing a good clean drop.

How much of a drop with these two?I would like minimal drop ,due to high snow area, with increase in handling.

Pm me a price for both springs and shocks/struts for e92 LCI xDrive.
I think I'd go with this route vs.. coils.

Also... will this give me a nice drop? I want something to give it a nice low look (not too low, but clean!!)

THanks

How do these compare with the Bilsteins? If I get these now, will I be able to do a swift coil-over spring conversion in the future?

Koni is one of the softer riding dampers out there because of its twin tube low pressure design.
