Tein makes good stuff.

As for what product... well, that depends on 1) what you want to do with your car, and 2) how much you want to spend.

I run the Tein flex with EDFC and I love them to death.... Sweet set up. As Cosmo says a little pricey.

If you want to go with a setup that's a bit less expensive than coilovers, I'd suggest Tein S-Tech springs on KYB AGX struts. A lot of people would say that's too much of a drop, but I've been using it for a little while now and LOVE the ride on my daily driver. It feels pretty close to stock, and is adjustable if you need a bit more aggressive handling.

Also keep in mind that the fronts (2" drop) could void the warranty on the AGX struts, as it's a little too much of a drop for the sruts. Regardless, I've had no problems whatsoever, and I think cosmetically the car looks great.

Helix DNA Sport coil overs are a good investment. No EDFC to control the stiffness and what not like the teins have, but none the less they are high quality at 999 bucks.
although i would look into a rearsway bar + endlinks before i touched the suspension.
