What he was saying is that coilovers are a good choice because they feature the ability to adjust the ride height of the car. However with the E36 trunk liner the liner needs to be removed to access the Rear Shock Mounts (RSM). Im sure what he meant to say was that with a slight cut to the trunk liner it would be possible to adjust the dampening without having to remove the trunk liner every time. The cut in the liner wouldnt be very noticeable at all.
I have the Koni Sport kit with yellow adjustable shocks and i like them. They lower the car about 1". I have 18"s and with the drop the tires rubs slightly under cornering so you have to get the fenders rolled. If you go with 17"s you will have no fitment issues. I have heard that Bilstiens are okay, but only if your tracking the car. Other people say Bilstiens are to harsh a ride for DD use. You can get the Koni sport kit which includes the shocks and springs, or you can get the shocks seperatley and get H&R OE Springs which have the lease amount of ride drop.
