What are the coilover options like on these? I'm not familiar with the differences/similarities to this and an S40, but I've been eyeing an S40 R-design for awhile and coilover options are pretty scarce.

KW/ST seem to be about the only choice maybe some others i've missed. i'd probably go with the ST's i know someone selling some used one's i might get in a few months.
