    Eibach springs and Bilstein shocks may cost a bit more than £500 though but it will be most awesome

    I went for a BOGE M-tech OE spec shocks coupled with BOGE 30/20mm spring kit. Spectacular result, eliminates body roll, retain comfort and provides a subtle taughtness all round. Everyone that's been in mine has been genuinely impressed.

    I would say the same as STK, Bilstein Shocks with Eibach springs. Eibach springs will be geuinely some of the best tuned/developed springs and a decent set of new shocks should make it complete.

    Personally I have never been a fan of coil over kits and cheap ish ones at that.
