540 COILOVER FK or PSS

Would you guys go with the FK SilverLine plus X coilover system or the base pss kit. The prices are almost the same, but the FK has adjustable dampening as well as very solid build quality using koni shocks. Sugguestions?

I have had the b-14 pss kit on my 540 for almost 3 years now with no issues. The ride is stiff but not uncomfortable. Overall very happy with my purchase and for only $1000 at EACeuroparts.
