    Handling will improve, I remember first time I got springs done it was great.
    It would only take a garage 1 - 1 half hours max

    and it will lower by 40mm ...it may need to bed in a bit before you start to notice though

    Is your CAPS lock broken ?

    Drops will certainly improve handling, just remember you do not drive round a track every day...
    worth the money for styling alone i reckon. gor mine done by a backstreet garage for £15 a corner. but they Fu$&£d my speed sensor which then cost £300 from Vaux to sort. still smarting now.... take your chances with a local gaqrage or be safe with VX. depends on your wallet i suppose..

    As above ^^^^ its the only way to learn! Ive dropped 6+ VXLS and never been to a garage, i was never shown how to do it, i just had a haynes and the tools! Ive done springs on Novas , Full kits on Corsa Bs/ Tigras, coilovers on Corsa Cs and Springs on Astra Gs + more with no training!!!!!!!!!!
