No, I don't like Hot Bits suspension. I've driven one car with it, and I thought it was terribly setup (although I wish I could have played with it a bit; it wasn't my car), but the turning point was seeing a failure with an E30-based suspension at Mosport which really shouldn't have happened... and that turned me off on their products altogether.

Yeah, the 2002 is the same way. I barely care to check my tire pressure at the track, so there was no way in hell I was going to buy a shock that needed to be compressed and monkeyed around with just to adjust it ... I talked with a local Koni dealer at length about different applications, and looked through a few Koni drawings (very handy to have access to) and I made a decision on what to get, versus going to Ground Control and forking out $$$$$

You are spoiled with your fancy Ground Control setup

Out of curiosity PM me (or post here if you want) what your pair of custom valved top adjustable front shocks cost you.

These are actually Rears. I haven't ordered fronts yet because I have to pull the car apart and measure the strut housing once more to make a decision on which shock to get... I didn't pay for the rears yet, but I expect the pair to be around 300ish.

If that's the case that's a good deal because I just ordered a set of replacements from GC for my fronts because they are both damaged and it came out to $380 + shipping.

How did they get damaged? Are they just stock length E30 strut inserts?
