    Coilovers or springs

    Hi guys I'm not sure which to fit to my sport avant, I've fitted plenty of spring sets to various cars but only fitted coilovers to a e46 coupe I used to have and the ride was slightly hard,they was ta techniques coilovers so only budget but I'll be fitting a £200 set max again so probably same sort of coilovers.
    whats your guys experience and preference?

    iv always fitted coils

    but on this b8 iv gone the spring route
    its given me a good drop and not as harsh as the coils

    so coils for looks and springs to keep some comfort.

    Springs, but I'm biased.
