Went to a garage today to get a quote on fitting my springs, backbox and balancing my wheels. Anyway, i already got some -40mm Gmax springs, he said that i need 30mm springs because when i fit them the front wheels are going to rub... Im only on 15's

Also said its gonna cost me 100 for the job, sound about right?

He also said that if it rubs when there's 4 people in the car then it fails its MOT

I didn't know that when they MOT your car they get 4 fat blokes to sit in it!!
