How low do you want to go? I personally like my Eibach Pro kit because it offers a stock-like ride and lowers your car about 1.5 inches.

I'd say the H&R cupkit is totally decent for your daily driving focus... It's the maxium drop without resorting to a coilover suspension, and all of the components are matched together. It is a nice setup for around $600. If you want something close to the drop with a tad more performance (perhaps?). The eibach sportline package, i forgot what it's called, but it is the eibach sport-line springs, eibach pro-dampers, and eibach anti-roll swaybars, both front and rear for a tad over $600.

I myself, did some ebaying to get a nice budget setup suitable for street or track performance. Everything quoted in my signature (related to suspension) just a tad over $600. The springs provide the drop, the adjustable dampers help the rebound, and stability of cornering. The rear sway bar completes the package with the reduction in body-roll. I am over-satisfied with my setup.

I put the Eibach sportline springs and pro-dampers on my daily driver about a month ago. I had about a 2" drop and the car feels great. I have scraped on a few bumps, but the roads around here are not well maintained. I had trouble with the camber until I ordered the Eibach camber kit. I cannot remember exactly what the kit cost, but I think it was between $600-$700.

I have the H&R Cup Kit and its great. Its not too bad for daily driving and it looks great on the car. The cornering is sharper and it definately gets rid of the boat like handling.

I have the sportlines, pro dampers and sway bars from eibach and would recomend it. If you're not racing on twisties you can probably skip the swaybars and save a few bucks if you're on a budget.
