    if you want to slam it on the floor then probably coilies mate,
    if its just the lowered look you want and not too fussed on getting it low then just do springs,
    price wise it will probably be cheaper to do springs, (40mm max before shocks need upgrading too)
    there are some "cheapy" sets of coilies on ebay but the feedback is that they are sloppy handilng,
    depends on your budget really, sometimes cheap you pay, cheap you get...

    Eibach springs are what most pepole go for 2 choices eibach pro wich will drop the car 30mm all round or sportlines front 50mm rear 30mm. I have got kw springs 35mm drop all round got them at a really good price and cant recomend them enough although they are more expensive the eibach new keep a eye on ebay for some i know there was a set of eibach pros on there a few days ago for £70.
