Well... I went with the H&R's. But that's primarily because it was the only thing out there when I bought 'em. Not sure if Eibach or others have caught up.
On a side note... the combo of MINI Sport Suspension and H&R Sport Lowering Springs is great for the money. But it is stiff enough that I'm reconsidering my original plan to go to 18" wheels. At least with the run flats on the 17's, it's really stiff up front and will bottom under heavy impacts. I think the extra sidewall in necessary right now, though getting away from the runflats might help a bit, too.
I would say, go with a full coilover set-up with 18"s and it'll give you a better ride with more adjustability. If you stick with only swapping springs and the 18's, look into buying some insurance and get on the list for the M7 Strut Tower Reinforcement plates.
Just my 2-cents.
