Eibach doesnt make coilovers. I'd say go with the KW if you have the loot to spend.

If you live in an area with rough roads and potholes, you probably won't want to lower your car much... if any more than 1.5"... chances are you will bottum out your car at that lowered stance anyways. Plus, if you go with a firmer setup, chances are you will bend rims more often too. eibach pro kit system, new shocks/struts/springs, 1.5, best to go with.
