If you use google image search there must be a million photos of lowered GTIs... I would look there if I were you.

Seems like appearance is the main factor, in which case any old common or garden springs/coilovers will achieve the desired look.

If you can't decide on height then coilovers may be the way to go.

What's your budget?

Here's mine on coilovers.
Ride is low but just the way I like it plus don't rub. Handkes great had proper geo setup carried out.
