Lots of good specials on coilovers right now and I am thinking it is time...
The big question is: Are the BCs worth $300 more than the Megans? This is my wife's daily driver. Only sees the occasional spirited driving from me on weekends. I can't imagine we need the BCs. Thoughts?

Both are made by Bor Chuann out of China. The manufacturing quality of both brands is exactly the same and longevity will be roughly the same as well. I've heard that while they are made by the same people, the actual Bor Chuann (BCRs) ones are a bit better. That being said, "a bit" varies a lot.
Depends if you want the car to be real low or just a mild drop. BCs are better than the Megans, worth the $300 depends on how nuts you go with modding the car. If your just looking for a small drop get the springs and call it a day. But if you have plans on doing alot of modding then you probably will want the coilovers.
BCs are a better than the Megans but I think springs is the way to go for you.
I'm getting the BCs since I had another set on my subaru and they were very well built for $995.
I am on the f-sport springs only...and I want megans. The ride is too rough for my taste. Bounce like crazy on rougher roads. The drop isn't too bad for my taste. I would like to be a little lower though. Here is a few pics for height...
