Advice on Meister R coilovers for FN2

I have my FN2 for 5 years now, and it needs new shocks. I use the car as a daily, and the ride always bothered me, so much that I often have ideas of selling it. But since I can't get anything close to its performance for the same money here in Greece, I kept it and probably will for the foreseeable future. So I am contemplating of getting the Meister R coilovers set. But is it worth it? Will I see improvement regarding daily comfort? The car is never used for trackdays, only as a daily commuter and family car. I already have the eibach springs, which in my opinion did absolutely nothing as people claimed they would regarding making the ride more bareable.

I have had standard springs, then progressive Eibachs and now Meister coilovers. With them turned to their softest I think they're fine for road use and softer than the standard springs. Eibachs were the most comfortable though - I'm surprised you didn't see a difference!

Only expect to get 50k easy miles from the Meister R's before they need replacing as that's deemed acceptable mileage before the dampers pack up according to Jerrick. I still have the knackered Meister R damper from my Civic in the garage. On top of all the other crap and legwork I had to do with the fronts, never again..... The build quality is no where near as good as OEM.

I was surprised as well, I'm guessing my shocks were already half knackered when I got the eibachs and the reduce travel gave them the final blow.

Thanks for the replies guys, appreciate the feedback.
