Default FM Stage 2 vs. FM Vmaxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Stage 2

First question, because I'm too lazy to search right now, are Vmaxxxxx coilovers adjustable? I assume so because they're marketed as coilovers, even though not all coilovers are technically adjustable.

But onto the main point, which one should I go with? They're around the same price (Vmax is 50 bucks cheaper) but the percentage of difference is so little that I'm having a hard time.

Which would yall'z recommend?

EDIT: With a little more research, I have come to the conclusion that it comes down to what you want to be adjustable - the shocks or the height. If I go with the stage 2 (FM springs and Illuminas) could I just use some fleabay coilovers?

I hate non-adjustable coilovers

I'd go with illuminas and the OBX ebay coilover kit, then better rear spring rates.

"coilover" "ground-control coilover"

Unless you've put A LOT of money into converting to something crappier, ALL miata suspension systems are "coilovers"
