Default BC Coilovers or Bilstein Dampers/H&R Springs

What does everyone think? I have a MS6 and be using the stock rims until I figure out what rims to get.

I just got Megan's and I absolutely love them. Similar quality to BC but $~150 cheaper. Much more cost effective and comfortable than springs and struts IMO.

Another question. If I did get the Bilstein/H&R set up would I have to get a camber kit?

If you can afford the extra $150, get the H&R coilovers. Same combo as the H&R/Bilstein setup you want, just more aggressive rates/valving to match the lower ride height.

I have the BC coilovers and LOVE them. I can't speak for the other set-up. Just my .02
