I hear you and was very relunctant to go with a sleeve kit as I was certain I would ruin the feel and handling of the car. Keep in mind, I don't go to the track and wanted to retain EDC funtion. The Ground Control/Eibach option can be noisy and is using linear springs rather than progressive like the factory (correct me if I'm wrong). TC Kline seemed a bit unnecessary for me as I didn't feel like I needed to name custom spring rates. I must say the KW sleeve kit is pretty darn awesome. I'm sure you could notice a bit of a difference between factory ZCP and KW with reduced travel and stock shocks at a HPDE, but for me they are perfect. As far as I know, there is no other suspension option that retains EDC.
Im just saying i would have taken sone of the money spent (eg dinan intake which does nothing but look good and a couple other things ) and put it into a proper suspension that would retain suppleness and cam be adjusted for canyons or spirited drives. Thats just my preference.

Your car looks great though!

I took it to the track once and almost had a heart attack.

that car looks better than mine the day I picked it up.

These shots are better than the eye can see. Gorgeous.
