The stock ride is nice and stiff, so maybe a set of coilovers with similar rates to stock(maybe a bit higher) would be great? I'll wait and see before choosing coilovers and spring rate, hopefully a few write up on different rates and their behaviors will come along
One important thing to keep in mind is the dampers play a huge role in ride comfort. Even if with higher spring rates, as long as the dampers can keep up, you could end up with a smooth, if not smoother ride than stock.
