    Lowered 100mm?

    Lowered 100mm? I have not heard that on a car before. The most I have heard is 60mm . More info in the link below for the Astra Turbo conversion Mk3....

    too true!

    my coilovers were meant to be 40mm drop at the rear but it sits so low iv had to wind the front coilovers to the very lowest setting just to level it out, which iv been told 'should' be about 60-80mm!!! :-O
