ST or BC Coilovers?

Looking to lower my 300 soon and I've heard good things about ST coilovers (have a friend with ST coilovers on his 2011 300 and he loves them.) Then I have another friend that said he can get me a killer deal on some BC coilovers new for $700 shipped to my door. I don't know much about the BC coilovers, so was wondering if anyone has any insight? Keep in mind, I say friends, but one is about 6 hours away from me and I've never ridden in his 300 and the other one is in TX and im in CA.

I don't plan on going super low with it as I want to keep a nice comfortable ride. I'll be adding 22's and I know it will never ride like stock, but I still want a nice ride, so I know coilovers are the way to go. Anyway any info is appreciated. Oh and im looking to stay under $1K for the coilovers. I know there are other options out there, but im asking about these specifically.

Good luck with the coilovers. You can adjust dampening and height so you should see a good ride I have coilovers and 22" rims and love how it rides. Post pics once you get it done. My is low but not as low as it could be with coilovers. Wanted to keep the rake on it

KW Variant 1 is the same as the ST Coilover kit, same company (KW Automotive) manufacturers it with a different grade material but other than that they are identical. I'd get the ST over the BCR but that's just my opinion.

I got the bc Coilovers and from what i see there made exceptionaly well, One of the reasons i went with the bc's are the rear ajustment nobs extenders ,just pop your trunk and select desired firmness and go.
