He didn't say they was excellent for track use. He said he was confident they would be.
The second thing he said was that he was confident they would be. Right before that:

I'm not suggesting that this is an outright paid ad for the product. I just have to question the objectivity, most of all because it appears his car was the test mule and he didn't pay for it.
Of course magazine writers aren't completely objective, either, as everyone has their built-in biases and their opinions are most likely further tainted by advertising dollars and their being treated to elaborate spreads, food and drink we could only dream of and fantastic trips abroad to car launches. But... if you read the biggest magazines it can't escape your notice that in testing and comparing vehicles they point out flaws, complain about sloppy engineering and in some cases completely eviscerate vehicles when appropriate, and do it to vehicles provided by advertisers (C&D famously lost Toyota as an advertiser for a while after a string of middling reviews, and they didn't subsequently back off of Toyota to woo them back). They are not given cars to keep or given free upgrades to their personal vehicles. I am personal friends with someone way up the masthead at one of these magazines and do have something of an inside scoop, and he claims that at his magazine (and the other major US car magazine he worked at previously) they don't allow such shenanigans.
The point I made about the OP passing along information supplied by BC without critical analysis can be illustrated by part of what he wrote about ride height, suspension travel and ride quality. He wisely went for a 1.5" drop, any more for a daily driver is inviting problems (I personally wouldn't even drop quite THAT far, but that's neither here nor there). But the OP also writes that BC claims that:
the BR Type (coils) do not sacrifice ride quality as you increase the amount of your drop. The ride height adjustment is a separate collar from the spring perch
I understand spring perches... I have had adjustable spring perches on prior cars. But BC suggesting that you can drop your car beyond even the OP's relatively meager drop without ride penalty is a bit nutty. Let's go with the max drop of 3.5". The ground clearance of the car will now be reduced to barely over 2". How on earth can they claim no ride penalty when the job of the suspension is now reduced to simply keeping the car from dragging on the pavement? It's got to be stiff to keep from constantly bottoming out the car.

Sure. And people are also going to assign positive qualities, sometimes nebulous and sometimes outrageous, to things they spent a lot of money on or things that they were expecting would improve their circumstances. It's called confirmation bias. We are all subject to that. I'm sure the OP is happy with his new setup or he wouldn't have written this piece, and I'm sure the customer service aspects are as written, but overall it's a complex mix of truth, opinion, exaggerated claims by the manufacturer/distributor, confirmation bias and... this is the part that really raises my eyebrows... the very real possibility that all this work was done for free or at a dramatically reduced price.
