I plan on going Dinan adjustable for the warranty and reputation at the dealer. I want to avoid hassles as much as possible.

+1 for Eibach if you want the car to sit just a bit lower than stock.

Someone reported issues with H&R because the front wheels will go inside the fender and in the back is extremely flush.

KW v4 will be the best option, but you loose EDC and have a completely different price.

My vote would be coilovers which provide shocks and springs matched by design. With springs - the height is what it is and cannot be changed. With coilovers, the suspension height can be tuned as needed.

I did a thread a while back asking for pics comparing H&R and Eibach:

This post pretty much sums it up:
