Default Which suspension to lower? Recommendations please

Hi all,

This is my first post here so please bear with me.

I'm running an A6 C6 on 18 inch rims and I'm looking to lower the car. I've heard coilovers are too hard and I don;t wnat to compromise ride comfort too much.

My needs/concerns for lowering are as follows:

1. Not too low as I don;t want to slow down to really slow for humps as that is one of the benefits the comfort suspension brings. Also, now without lowering, I can park head in at any car park without worrying about thrashing the lower tip of the front bumper.

2. Not overly stiff as again, I place some premium on ride comfort.

3. Street use only.

4. Concern : Will lowering the car and changing from the stock Monroe shocks take away the benefit of the comfort suspension?

Any other brands to consider?

1. Koni (who OEMs for KW I am told)?
2. Bilstein
3. H&R
4. KW
4. Others

Thanks in advance again to all.
