Might need some tweaking.

Already custom tweaked for this setup. Problem is PASM wasn't designed to work with progressive springs, and doesn't work so well when the rates compound.

It really isn't bad. Most customers aren't going to notice it, and most will (as I do) enjoy the improved ride most of the time. I was actually surprised how stiff the standard setup was in the rear for a base Carrera in some situations, like going over a speed bump or certain bumps with a bit of angle, so that the rear wheels processed the bump separately. In those situations, which are very common in every day driving, the TechArts are nicer/softer. The "pogo" bugs me maybe 2-5% of the time, and I can usually anticipate it (freeway expansion joints ahead of bridges, bumps/yumps at freeway speeds, etc). But the stock suspension sets a very high bar, and I've driven aftermarket setups that meet or exceed the standard 991.2 setup. If there was a good way to raise the car 0.25-0.50 inch, I might be tempted to live with this setupŚbut now my curiosity has been piqued.

I looked at the HR VTF setup when it first came out but wasn't really wanting the helper springs added to the mix. And there just weren't any reviews at that time, also looked at the KW HAS springs which seemed really nice and had some good reviews. I'm sure you'll find something that will make your car ride like you want it to in the future.
On the preset of the DCS Box I wonder how they could reset the ride height sensors to zero without the unit actually in the car. If you change your setup and don't need the DCS Box anymore pm me I'll take it off your hands :-))
