I plan to autocross the car over the summer but I will also be daily driving it. What do you think it the best combo for performance and also some drop, performance over drop though.
OR
Should I just get a set of koni coilovers.

Re: Best spring/shock combo for GTI (CandyWhabbit)

H&R Sports with Konis or Bilsteins seems to be a favorite for street / light auto-x use. Coils are highly overrated unless you're going to really hit the track hard.

I hear that the H&R race springs just lower the car and make it "feel" stiffer but actually hurt handling.

Race, probably. Technically anything lower than euro ride height starts to degrade handling (unless you really ramp up the dampers). I think the Eibach Pro-kit and H&R sports are usually accepted as a decent trade off of performance for a little style.
"Slamming it on FKs" is about the dumbest thing you can do for your handling, but if you live in Florida and don't care about turning, hell, why not.
