It basically means he will heat the springs and squash them. You may not get that amount but go with new coils. What model is it ? What size wheels do you have ?

my mate got his done and it was barely lower....he wanted 2in drop and i doubt it was even 1...ended up going with aftermarket springs

and it depends on what springs you get as to ride quality

Do you realise you are saying the car was lowered 100-125mm ?

Measure from bottom of your wheel\rim (not tyre) and up to the lips of your guards, aftermarket coils will sit them at approx 585mm F & R
