Ground Control Users??

I am in the market for suspension upgrade to improve handling.
my E92 has EDC option and after searching for last 3~4 weeks, Ground Control seems the best option for me.

However I also considered KW CS or other coilover options however GC will let me keep EDC and "upgrade" to stock suspension without spending $3k+.

I would like to know what are "Cons" for having GC instead of going for full coilovers.

Thanks in advance !!!

The GC kit still uses the stock shock/strut, so it's not that optimal for track use.
It's really more of a fancy spring upgrade that allows height adjustment.

I am more leaning towards to a full coilovers. I just had an idea that it would be a good idea to get GC since I can optimize EDC.
