      I am trying to decide if I either want to do bags or coils. I would just like some advice from different people giving possible pros and cons.

      If you have the money, bags all the way. If you decide to go coils don't be cheap or you WILL regret it. I have airlift setup and it rides beautifully. I'm more about the low and slow anyways but they are track tested and proven.

      Same with me at the time there was no v2, analog is known for reliability and I had already done manual before and digital nothing wrong with analog

      Depends what you want out of the car, but as said above, if you get coils, spend over 1,000
