If you want height adjustable, then I've read good things on both H&R Street and Koni Street coilovers. These supposedly retain a stock-like ride but offers better body control, plus they are fairly affordable.
If you want something more, then you'll have to step up so something like what I have, Stasis Tracksport coilovers setup. The dampers in this kit is rebound adjustable, and you can choose your own spring rates to better suit your local road conditions. I've got these and they are very very good, but you pay more for it.
If you just want a fixed ride height setup, then lately I've been hearing good things on the Eibach Prokit damper and spring setup. One of the suspension guru on the AudiWorld S4 forum (use to work for Stasis I believe) current has these and give them very high marks. I'm not sure about the cost but I'd imagine it to be cheaper than adjustable coilovers.
