    SRi Turbo is lowered 25mm as standard therefore you have lowered your car by 5mm.

    the 30mm quote is for a standard astra.

    the guy on the fone will be right your car will be 30 mm lower than a standard astra,like said the sri turbo's are lowered as standard so you wont see much of a differance.

    Did you tell him you had an Sri turbo and did he then say it would lower that car by 30mm? if so i think you should be entitled to at least a refund of the springs.

    doesnt sound too hopeful then, chances are he meant it will lower the car 30mm, which it's done, rather than an additional 30mm to what you already have
