2013 Mini Cooper S new shocks/tires

My S came equipped with the Sport Suspension and the factory Continental Pro Contact run flats.
I just had the shocks/struts replaced with Koni Sport Adjustables and also replaced the tires with Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ tires. The difference is amazing. It feels like a different car cornering and just general driving. I have the shock setting at 75%/50% F/R. It appears as if I’ll need a work around to access to the struts as the JCW Strut Tower Brace is partially obstructing access to the Strut Tower and adjusting via the Koni supplied adjustment ****. Any Suggestions?
The ride has actually improved with the new setup. I Still feel the potholes of course but the “rebound “ is more subdued.
