I went for the Lotus/Bilstein/Eibach setup. Pricey, I think the parts were around $3k, but its great stuff. Best street ride of any option. I thought it would be too floaty for track days, but I did a driving school event at Watkins Glen and it worked great. It was a Porsche Club event, and many of them were complaining about losing traction on rough spots. I still don't know where the rough spots are.

The other options will require suspension tuning on your part. If you understand how that works and don't mind spending some time getting it dialed in, you can probably get a better result. The Bilstein package is plug and play, or at that price maybe I should say plug and "pay". That package came from the factory on the Final Edition cars, and I think its great that Lotus engineering spent the time to develop a package for the older models. As Lotusdriver said, we buy these cars for what Lotus knows how to do with suspensions.
