    Only advice i can give is on the Weitec's, got them on mine and you'd not know it was running coilovers on a normal drive, not crashing around and no hard ride, on a faster drive handling is brilliant and for me the lower stance is a big improvement.

    For that kinda budget (assumption based on your choices) you won't get better than HSDs. Fully adjustable and you'll soon get used to the ride. It's not that bad I suppose, nothing worse than you'd expect.

    HSDs will be the best, but that is reflected in the price..

    I'd go for the weitec's and keep the other £280 in your pocket!

    But he'll need top mounts to with them. That other £280 would just about cover RPM top mounts.

    All depends on budget & whether you require adjustable top mounts & dampening. If you don't then go for a cheaper set. Hottuning, ap, weitec are, from what i read are good, usable sets.

    £200 set of Jamex are on mine, no doubt the others are better, but 3-4 times the price.
