Eibach or H&R Springs? (UK)

Hi All,

I need to get rid of my FK coilovers - the ride is awful! So, i'm stuck between Eibach or H&R lowering springs (approx. 30mm drop). Which is the better brand? Eibach Lowering Kit retailing at about 105, the H&R about 170- see links below.

Any advice would be gratefully received.

just for your consideration the eibach springs are essentially you euro folks' stock GTI springs.
