Default Opinions, coils ($665) or bags...Progress kit experiences?

I'm on the fence, but I think the Progress kit for $665 is a great deal.
I already have Koni shocks.

I would have to save up for bags and then I don't have the ability to install them myself.

Any opinion would be appreciated.

Progress coils for $700.
Jump on that.
I've had both bags, and coils.
I've found bags are for the wow factor and coils are....well for performance

With bags more can go wrong. Trust me you don't wanna blow a air line.

Personally bags are cool as ____. But ride like hell.
My progress coils have a better ride then any bagged car I've been in.
Just my $.03

Installing air isn't difficult if you do your research. Also the ride quality is great if you spend the money in the right departments use quality components. I've been installing air suspension systems for years now and the technology now is amazing compared to what we started with in the early 2000's

Thanks guys. I just need your feedback to support my decision.

I think I'll go with the Progress kit. To those who have it, how difficult is it to adjust?

I really want the rear lower on my car.

Someone on clubxb said there's an inexpensive easystreet air kit for sale...

Hmmmmm!

That makes you first in line for them, haha. I paid $352 for them in January. I've had them for about 5,000 miles. My springs don't have the rubber wrap on them so they squeak for me.

It will be a while before the Koni's are off, but I will let you know.

Air ride if installed properly and the right parts chosen you will have better performance with air ride that coils after factoring in the fact you can get in and out of any parking lot you want.

I bought the coils. I couldn't find a good price for an air kit and I wouldn't be able to install myself anyway.

lol, if you can install coils, and you have basic wiring and plumbing knowledge, you can install bags. esp. on these cars with their simple suspension.
