Default Which coilover would you go with?

Before anyone goes all crazy with u should read all this info already by searching, I did already I just want to take a general poll know because there are things about certain brands etc that isn't on paper that can sway one brand from another like warranty....

I am looking to get coilovers this week and have narrowed down my choice. The price range is $1000. I am looking for a very stock ride and feel since I don't really take hard turns and just commute with my car a lot. I like my cars low so front will be slight tuck and the back will be 1/2 finger gap to adjust for when people sit in the back.

The finalist are: Tein Street Advance, Stance SS or the BC coilovers.

I have used Tein for so long and like the comfort of the ride, but it doesn't come with the upper mount. The Stance are made in Japan which is always a good thing but never tried Stance before. BC I never heard of until recently, but man the warranty seems really nice!!

Let me know your thoughts and choice!!!

BC because it doesn't cost $200 for a replacement strut like stances.

Bilstein PSS Coil-Over System. It's the last Coil-Over you will ever need to buy and they last a LLOOONNNNGGGG time.

Stance all the way. Teins don't go low enough. Bc's are better then Megan garbage but not on the same level as Stance coilovers.
