Default FA500 or D2 racing rs

So I'm at an impass when it comes to coilovers. I have a 12 wrx that I'm building slowly but nothing more than 350-400 of I'm lucky. I'm not racing, tracking or anything. I just want a nice lower with a good ride.
I found d2 and haven't seen any bad reviews really. Everyone says it looks good and the ride is smooth set at the right dampening.
Then I saw fortune auto 500 And have read only good reviews there as well. Same things good back and forth. Nice ride over bumps and clean lower.

Ones 900 and the others 1000 I wanna know what people think. I need a little help from someone who may know a little about the both. Thanks

Which did you end up going with, and where did you purchase from? I haven't seen a basic FA500 set for less than $1200.

How would you rate the coilovers you got? I keep going back and forth between D2 and Fortune Auto.

I just ordered a set of fortune auto 500 series from thmotorsports.com for 1150 including the roller bearings and shipping. They don't have them on their site so you have to call them. I chatted with one of their reps for a bit and the only thing in the price range he would recommend for subaru is the fortune auto coil overs. The next step up from them would be kw variant 3's, which given I too am not tracking the car, isn't in budget or really worth it. We went with 7k springs and 8k valving to produce a "euro sports feel" (think sport Audi or bmw), where it's more of a dampened sporty feel.
