Default Air vs coil question

To all GS CL members.

We are thinking about bringing back full air suspension, seems that VIP style is getting popular again.
We wanted to know if any of the GS owners prefer air to coils. we are also thinking about developing a cylinder just for the front which will keep your ride but just raise up the front 2-3" for those driveways etc.

Let us know what you guys prefer so we can get started on the development asap

Thank you

I would love both air and coilovers. A cup kit would be nice like Roberuta.

Those are very expensive, I myself dont know anyone that wanted to pay that much for the cup kit. Let me ask our engineer and estimate cost to develop a cup kit.

I just received update on the air suspension, It will be retailed around $4,500 but since we do not have a sample here and the corporate office will not start production again till they see some inquiries and orders.

I want to offer to anyone that wants one. these are full including tank and all necessary parts. also wireless and comes with a phone app which you can control your ride height. I will get more details. Warranty for one year.
but here it is $$3,200 shipped to your door!

I also got some answers for the cup kit, Our corporate engineering said its simple enough but will require min 10 orders to start development. maximum height 2" . I think I will start a group buy to see if people are interested. for the first 10 people I want to offer a special $3500 plus shipping.
These will come with full kit, including our full aluminum 7075 coilover.
What do you think? give me some honest feedback.
Thank you
