Coil over / lowering spring advice

Just picked up a 99 slk230 and am looking for advice regarding which coilovers and lowering springs are the best. I'm looking for something that will go good with the factory AMG 17" wheels and/or aftermarket wheels either in the 17" or 18" variety and also lose up the wheel gap. Not sure if I will go full coilovers or not although that is what I ultimately want to do.

What are the best coilovers for performance and what's the best compromise of performance vs cost?

What are the best lowering springs for performance and closing the wheel gap?

Now with whatever I go with i need a fairly compliant, smooth ride. I've got a bad lower back so I can't have a super harsh ride.
