Tein SS vs Bc Racing BR series (NEED HELP)

So im looking for a coilover kit not breaking the bank.. something a grand and under that does the job and isnt breaking in a couple months down the road.
Im not looking to track, race, and or anything extreme. I need a daily drive but with a nice drop and good ride.
What do you guys think? Tein or BC Racing...
Im leaning towards Tein because it is much more reputable and is a product that has been used worldwide.
Bc Racing is still coming up but interested because of the options they provide for the price...
Help please love to hear your thoughts...

ST V1 coil-overs go for under 1K, I've used them for a year and a half without any issues here's a pic when I got them
