Suggestions (Bags vs Coils)

Newbie here. I have a 2007 awd is250. Thinking of lowering it but I keep getting different opinions from people. Some saying for me to get bags & others coilovers. Can someone tell me the pros & cons of both?
Also I live in Boston. We have some brutal winters

Bags are horrible for performance but a lot better for looks... Coils are better if your on horrible roads as I'm pretty sure you can pop bags... I'm not too familiar with bags... But I guess I wanted you have one opinion at least,
good luck

many air bag kits will handle just as well as coilovers. i think the deciding factor will be cost. bags will cost a lot more than coilovers.

Fender Rolling, Pulling or Shaving in SoCal, thats what i do, hit me up if you need help.

Truth. Bags with FEEL a million times better than coilovers.

Honestly, if you are just considering lowering, then i would say both are out of the question. Go with a nice drop spring/strut set that'll give you a little bit of low but not sacrifice driveability or align-ability.

Coilovers are more for your really low DD/weekend track car, or a full on track car.

Bags are for someone looking to tuck rim and build a show car.
