Ok ,he replied to me
They actually refunded me, and they said they would come back when they could quote a cost for posting to Athens
He hasn't contacted since, I hope I get an answer today

My springs arrived and I completed the install on Thursday, everything went smoothly as there are no rusted bolts to deal with! Took a little longer as I'm also helping a friend fit a new clutch to a Jaguar E-Type.

At first I thought the car sat a little high and the ride was too firm but after about 40 miles it all settled down nicely and I'm really happy with the results, not too firm, not to low, just perfect....

Thanks Jeroen
You see there is no haste as I already have a set of Eibach springs I am going to fit for my next suspension refreshment coming soon, but I was just thinking of keeping this one as stock for future reasons (ok - to use after 20 years hahahah)
In any case I would appreciate some feedback from him

I just was in touch with him and he reminded me we had this conversation before, and he is right. The shipment was delivered on April 16, I believe with your mother, back then you said you had to check but you never came back on this. So all we know is that your order was delivered April 16 and you've never contested this info since. Or did you have another set shipped after this?
