Your requirements are much the same as mine. I went with Bilstein HDs and
the original springs and it is an excellent comprimise. A bit stiffer Vs
stock but still a nice ride and no loss of suspension travel or ride-height.
(big plusses where the sno & mud gets deep and the height of frost-heaves
limit your speeds)

Subject: [200q20v] H+R/Bilstein Upgrade Revisited - milder options?

Last month there was a nice thread on upgrades, including suspension, pretty
much directed at maximization.

My 200 20V Avant is the primary family car, and I don't want to go all out,
but at
125000 miles the need for new struts, and maybe springs, seems obvious on
the streets of Washington DC.

So what would be a good intermediate upgrade? I don't want to lower the car
a lot, though a little would be ok, and I don't want to hear complaints
about a harsh ride, though stiffer would be just fine. Eibachs instead of
H+R? Bilstein HD instead of Sport?

What do you think? Anyone done something similar?
