ebay specials are 170 quid and will go as low as you need, philj does coilovers fitted for 280. the spring kits i assume you've looked at are for mk 1 - 3 polos, as they have a different suspension set up, not allowing for cheap coilovers to be fitted. It can be done by yourself quite easily, just read up on it

I've heard good things about JOM too, they're good for the money, but they're obviously not as good as FK's and the like...

tbh budget ones will be the best for you as your not going on a track and its not as if you hammer the death out of the car everytime you drive it

every time i have summat to do on my car, summat always goes wrong, gets in the way, like some bolt that wont budge etc.

might just take it to a garage with the kit and let them do it. i know its £80 roughly, might seem a waste but at least it'll be done.

how do you lower and raise them at your own free will??
