Have you considered the Bilstein B12 fixed height suspension ? It is available in 2 variations, Pro-Kit (with Eibach Pro-Kit springs, moderate lowering) and Sportline (with Eibach Sportline springs, same stiffness but even more lowering). The advantages of the B12 are that the springs and dampers are already perfectly matched by Bilstein and also the dampers are monotube, which have many advantages over twin-tubes like OEM and Koni. But the dampers are not adjustable. However the ride should be very compliant given the Eibach springs.

how about some more examples since some are getting confused. ohlin shocks, Ground control shocks, koni shocks. Paired with swift springs, hr, eibach etc. If I was going to buy a coilover setup i would probably go with TC Kline.
