[Biturbos4] S4 suspension advice

Hi all, my new to me '02 S4 came with the Vogtland/Koni sport suspension kit (I think it's a 40mm drop). The height makes it handle and look really nice, but since I live in Boston, it's way too rough and it scrapes when going into driveways.

The stock springs and shocks/struts have 65k on them. I'm thinking the springs are fine, but the shocks are probably done. What's my best choice for shocks with stock springs? I've heard oem's are $$$ and too hard to get. So that leaves Bilsteins or Konis... any advice/experience with either setup?

I would love to find lower than stock springs, but they'd have to be like half the drop. I don't think any springs out there do that... and I'd rather not spend so much on buying coil-over's (and maintaining them). Any comments much appreciated.
