Default BC Racing Coilovers, w/without swift springs? Or HKS Hipermak IV Coilovers

So as I grow more and more tired of my friends making fun of my stock ride height(saying I have a lift kit lol), I plan on buying the BC Racing type BR RWD for my Q60. Going to drop it about 2".

My question is, are buying the additional swift springs actually worth it? Personally I don't really care too much about having rougher ride quality than stock, I enjoy having feedback from the road. However I do like it when my occasional passengers compliment how smooth the car rides as is, so it would be nice to keep that as well.

In conclusion, I'm either going to buy BC's or HKS Hipermax IV Coilovers.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

Yes the Swift upgrade is worth it.

Let us know if you want pricing on the BC or the HKS..

I expect to see a lot of goodies available from Japan for this platform soon. Unfortunately an AWD version of the Q50 3.0t will not be available there.
