    Thinking about picking up a set of coils for my 15 S3 with mag suspension.

    Can anyone recommend a decent set of coilovers that woukd give me a nice 1"-1 1/2" drop while still giving me a soft ride for a daily. Want something that has firmness but yet comfort as I wont be tracking the car. Looking to spend around 1k or less.

    In the sub $1k range there aren't too many options that I would consider high quality.
    Bilstein PSS9 is a nice package and relatively inexpensive, but might be firmer than what you want.
    You might be better off with a set of soft-ish lowering springs and some good shocks that aren't too firm like Koni FSD's

    Keep in mind, this will be sub $1k in parts only. You will want to replace the upper strut mounts and bearings, + factor in install cost if you can't DIY, and an alignment.

    The best kit you can get for $1k is the MSS Sport Kit. Not a traditional coilover but, it's better than any coilover kit or spring set I've ran in the past.
