Hi mate, welcome to the forum. It all depends what you want to spend really. If you’re looking at the bottom end of the market, I’d say Stance, or anything you see around the £250 mark. Mid range, VMaxx, JOM, AP, ST. Moving up, Bilstien, BC racing, KW. If you really wanna splash out, get an air ride set up. The world is your lobster mate!
If you just want lowering springs, check out eibach or H&R for the front, and a shackle kit on the rear.
Shop around too....Darkside developments, Awesome GTI, Demon Tweeks to name a few! Have fun researching mate

I fitted 60mm Eibach springs on mine. Very happy with them.

There are so many variables. Mainly down to budget and usage.

Budget coilover suspension will give the look you want, but will ride like crap in comparison to KW or Bilstein. ST is a good mid range product. Made by KW too.

I went top end and went for the h&r deeps from stillstatic. Not the cheapest. But rides superb and they let you go really low if you’ve the balls for it
