Debating this, springs are way cheaper but in the end I'll have fucked up shocks and struts, but good coilovers are so fucking expensive...what do I do HB!?

This means what exactly? What do you plan on doing with the car?
Is it necessary to be able to adjust the height?
A decent shock/spring combo will work fairly well and still be cost effective.
I kinda want to try my hand at autocross since my friends trying, and it's an mk4. I think I'm gonna spend the money on some FK's, but I have heard decent things about racelands and those are cheap as fuck! So I'll just have to do more research.

This ♥♥♥♥♥ seems like he wants budget coilovers.
Rokkors, Raceland, and VMAXX. VMAXX comes with adjustable dampening now for almost 600, i dunno if its still comfortable
Cup kits dont go low.
For more money, you can get KW, Weitec, ST, Bilstein, or the best...B&G(Over 1100).
Have fun with your MK5. MK4 is better
I have friends with Miata's who track them, and say that they feel decent, so for $250 if it's not a dedicated track car, and you want to go low.
yeah mk4's are better with their super low subframe and solid rear beams :rollseyes:
coils, but depends on how low you go.
I went through 4 pans, 1 dogbone, almost a trans and 5 cv boots(inner and outer). If slammed, your axle rubs and u need to rub a lot to get a good self-notch. Otherwise, plan to get the passenger side notched.
it gets old, the design on mk4s suck for going low.
but coils>cup kit unless u dont plan to adjust it ever, then its pointless.
Depends on how much you have to spent.
If it's in the $500-600 range you could either get a really good spring strut combo from a reputable company or a really crappy set of Chinese/Taiwanese coilovers where the damping rate between the left and right shock don't even match.
