AP get good reviews. They're made by KW and are essentially V1, but have an electroplated body rather than stainless like the V1. 

I've heard mixed reviews on the Gaz. They are damping adjustable though which is a good feature to have. 

Have you thought about lowering shocks and springs rather than coilovers? With anything lower you'll be compromising comfort, but coilovers tend to be a little more harsh even when extended fully.

i chose KW V1's & they have been great for over 90000 miles

as with most things you get what you pay for - avoid Gaz lol

IIRC if you get them direct from KW i believe you can ask for a slightly softer spring rate to make the ride softer - Kevin Bacon mentioned it on here years ago im sure
