    If money's not a problem then go for the Bilstein PSS9's. Otherwise, the Eibach's are pretty good.

    I've been using KW coilovers on the A3 for over 60k miles, and can highly recommend them. Although I haven't tried any of the other kits.
    I just went for the KW Variant 1 kit, to save messing about with setting them up.
    I was very impressed with the improved handling, and also amazed the ride quality is still very good.

    To be honest, although I have coilovers I don't really know if it was worth the effort. I set them to where I wanted and they haven't moved since. Alot of people on here recommend the H&R/Bilstein non-coilover combo.

    You car sounds sweet, get some pics up in the gallery and get us some more info :D
