I went with Neuspeed Softsports for my springs to give me about an inch of drop so I shouldn't have any issues in the winter here in New Hampshire. If I was going to go with coilovers, for sure I'd have to raise it every November so this wasn't really an option for me.
I live in Canada and dropping the car too much will be a lot of work come winter time. I dont have a winter beater car, anyway I went with Eibach ProSysytem setup I have had it for 2.5 years now and not a single problem getting stucked in snow. Not like my 2000 Jetta VR6 dropped with HR race and Konis...what a pain to have to be stucked in snow..
