Default 2011 wrx struts koni yellow or feal? any advice or first hand experience?

I have been looking to upgrade the suspension on my 2011 wrx for some time, I am only interested in some fun daily driving, improving handling a little and keeping a comfortable ride as well. I am sure the koni yellow struts are great however the only ones available are meant for 08-10 models which have a lower perch and therefore will lower the car in addition to the springs I combine with them and I feel it could be to low. Not to mention you have to drill out the rear upper strut mount holes a little. To install the feal fixed perch struts I would need to remove the spring seats from the oe shocks and put them on the rear feal struts. I have never used Feal suspension nor do I know anyone personally who has. Is there not a good strut that just simply fits as it should? Does anyone have any experience or advice on either set up or even a better solution maybe?

If you're interested in fun DD, try a set of Konis with your stock springs. I've used a bunch of different spring combinations with Konis on my DD '09 WRX, and finally settled on 2010 STI SE springs (250# front & rear). Installing the Konis wasn't that tough, and I've got about 100K trouble-free miles on 'em so far.
