One kit I haven't heard much about (I think it's more commonly run in Europe) is the KW variant kits for the E30. You can pic up a Variant I kit for a little bit more than the GC kit bit it's a direct swap kit that requires no cutting or welding so that price actually includes the cost of a custom strut housing...which is pretty good deal if you think about it.
Obviously if you have deep pockets I'd say go for the pimp AST 4200 coilovers.
