    I've heard coilovers are better, they are adjustable
    but I think they're more expensive

    I'd never adjust anything so I went for springs with shocks.

    Personal opinion is that (if you do go for springs) is that, unless your OEM shocks are very new, a set of uprated shocks really will improve the ride quality. I did springs then a few months later did shocks - the harshness from the springs on OEM shocks was much much improved, the car handling is also significantly better with both being done.

    I went for Jamex 40mm springs with matching Jamex shocks, less than £200 if you shop around, more than impressed with them! 5yr warranty on the springs and a 2yr on the shocks too!
