Raceland coilovers seem to be the cheap, not so terrible ones which sell quite well.

Raceland are definitley on the inexpensive side. Have heard mixed reviews, but people say the price is really good for quality. Other ones i would look into are Koni, Bilstein, and Vogtland. Theirs one other one that i heard was good, but im having trouble remembering the name. I wanna say VF or something, but i dont think thats right.

You will be hard pressed to find an actual coilover kit for an E30. I know from owning one. Because of the front hub design the kit has to have the whole spindle assembly built into it because there is no way to separate the strut from the spindle. Companies do make sleeve kits for it and thats probably going to be your best bet. I believe KW Suspensions does make a coilover set for it but it retails for something like $3,000.
