Have you cut your bump stops? this may be the problem.

Well if the back is sitting on the bump stops it will go no lower. So it may be that.

Agreed first thing todo is cut bump stops in half. U can just use a hacksaw.

I'm not sure that's the bump stops, my mates gt tdi sits lower with about a 45mm drop or so and it never goes near the bump stops.

Probably need to chop them anyway though but I'm just not sure they're stopping it yet.

The spax rdx are more for handling aspect as opposed to lows, I considered them for my car but realised they wouldn't go down as far as I wanted.
But the only thing that can stop the car from going any lower is the bump stops, only point of contact.
Unless as the op says dpm have sent the wrong springs.

Yeh but look at the arch gap in the pics, there's no way that's on the bump stops, something else must be going on there. Don't know what though but I dare say we'll find out in time

Have you checked your bumpstops?
Don't think it will go down 40mm but might be worth a look.

Show this pic to dpm

I mean that's like 40mm maybe but way less than 80mm, if you've got what is meant to be an 80mm kit I personally wouldn't stop hassling them till it was sorted.

Actually I was looking at my ruler and I think you're maybe not as far from 80mm as I thought. it's hard to say for sure though.

Ok I retract that last statement, that really doesn't look anything like 80mm
