We have not seen them without the sleeves, are yours without?

They should be on, to protect the paint, and prevent corrosion.

Another blogger in the US with the F10 535 had issue with the springs, the upper part of spring kept on rubbing when the car traveled up & down on the roads.

He did the fix by putting in plastic sleeves (less than $5US), almost identical to the pic shown and told ACS about the fix. The blogger has no issue afterwards.

I purchased mine from bannVelgen. Very nice service and communication.

The spring is wonderful. Much better than the h&r spring I took off. Car is not as jumpy as h&r and ride is better.

I found that the AC springs are 25mm F and R while the H&R are 25mm F 15mmR

So the AC drop is more in the rear AND a smoother ride? Is this true?

That is indeed correct, the ride with AC Schnitzer is smoother then with H&R.

The lowering information is also correct, ACS aproximatly 25mm front and rear, where H&R is 25mm on front and 15mm on the rear.

I will send you a PM with the price right away.

I wasn't expecting the ride in the rear to be lower; however, the ride is indeed better than H&R.

I think i am the one on the forum have tried both.
