I've currently got a set of Koni Yellow dampers (which are only about £100 a corner) and some eibach springs. My car does sit relatively low at the front and higher at the rear (as there is no weight in there) on this combination but they are really comfy for the road. They have a small amount of dampening adjustability but you can actually notice it working unlike some coilovers.
I got my setup from TGM second hand for a steal, but given the choice of a simple damper spring setup I would either go with the Bilstien and eibach springs or the spoon setup.
Coilovers I can't comment on as I haven't tried any, but I have just bought a set of Meister R GT1's to try out!
