adjustable rear dampers - any other options out there?

My 2015 1.6d-tec SR tourer has the OEM sachs dampers on the rear. It's the version that has the three stage damping adjustability via a switch on the dash.

Are there any aftermarket options out there that retain the adjustable damping? I had a quick google and i couldnt find anything?

I don't know but to be honest I cannot really detect much difference in driving whatever mode they're set to

how many miles do they have on them?

i just put a new one on the rear of mine (other was done for mot 12 months ago) and you really can tell the difference. maybe yours are worn out?

To be fair I don't drive the car that often (wife's car) but next time I'm out on my own I'll have a play around
