I have the B14's on my WRC. They are quite stiff, so on bad roads they are a quite annoying. On smooth roads the handling is great though.

For me they work for daily driver but then again, I'm used to a stiff ride since my old car was a Golf GTI mk3, lowered on cheap stiff coilovers. And the factory suspension of the WRC wasn't exactly made for a comfortable ride either.

If a stiff ride is unacceptable for you then I would suggest something else, preferrably something adjustable. I would have wanted the KW V2's, but the price was over my budget (they may very well be worth it though). The main reason I chose Bilstein was that they hade the best priced kit of all the well known brands.

The B14 kit for the WRC is different from the other Polos. I'm guessing it's stiffer to compensate for the higher weight, so in the end they are probably similar to the other Polos in (lack of) comfort.
