It really depends what you want out of your suspension. Do you plan to auto-x, track days, just daily driving.....? There is a vast array of setup like Numark and the guys have said. But it really depends on what you want it for. The Bilstein/H&R and Koni/Eiback combos of shocks-struts/springs for daily and some spirited driving is great. I had bilstein/H&R super sport springs on my old E30 and loved it. I tracked the E30 ocassionaly and found this setup decent for both DD and track days without sacrificing daily ride quality.
Now on the coilover side, setups from Eibach/H&R/Koni and KV suspensions is a big jump up and to get the most out of them they should be done by a pro shop so you can get the best out of them. A friend of mine with a E46 M3 has a KV V2 setup and it is awesome both on street and track.
