[BiturboS4] Suspension question

I've ridden a few times in H&R Street suspended cars & liked the ride quite
a bit. They are, however, progressive springs. One of the few straight-rate
spring options for the S4, that I'm aware of, is the Stasis Tracksport
setup. I ran this for a while on my car, finally got it tuned right, and
then removed it (when I sold the car). Stasis is selling the set for me,

I don't have any experience w/the Stasis Street setup, but, IIRC, this is
essentially the Koni A4 coilover kit that Stasis is selling for use on the
S4. Koni doesn't specifically recommend this kit for the S4, but it appears
to work.

The H&Rs are ~475lb/inch, whereas the Stasis Street setup is 400lb/in (from
their site).

Anyone had a chance to compare the H&R street coilovers with the STASIS
sport coilover setup on their S4 (or driven one)?  I'm thinking I might go
with either of these but I'm trying to find out the real world difference.
I'm told that the H&Rs have slightly stiffer springs and that they are
linear...STASIS is progressive.

Any feedback would be appreciated.  Thanks.
