H&R Race Springs Vs H&R Supersport springs

Hey everyone im looking for opinions on which spring would give me the best ride quality when accompanied with afm struts... Now just so everyone knows I am looking for the lowest ride but also dont want to feel like im riding in a one horse carriage down a dirt road... The car these would be installed on is my 2008.5 gti... If people could post pics for comparison that would be great

The Race springs will be stiffer
Between those two, I'd go SuperSports.

Although the Eibach Sportlines give a similar drop and ride awesome/better (especially with aftermarket dampers) than the H&R's and would be my choice.

So would the eibach sportlines and a set of koni str.t give a nice look and comfortable ride?

I am very happy with my super sport springs. I have them on Koni Str.t struts.
Zero complaints the ride quality is awesome.

Yes, very comfortable (for the drop). It was the best suspension setup I ever ran

There was another thread, but I can't find it:

Good price for the Konis:
