How far should I lower my GP on 17" wheels?

Hi all,

I have been wanting to lower my GP since buying it about 2 years ago, just never got round to it, however now I have the money and time for it.

I just wanted to know how much I could reasonably lower it (30mm, 40mm etc.)? I have quite a big gap from arch to wheel (around 5 inches on front and slightly less on rear).

I would like to get it sitting as low as possible without the wheels catching and so it will still pass MOT.

I am leaning towards lowering springs because they are around half the price of coil-overs. I have absolutely zero experience and little knowledge when it comes to either of these.

Wheels are "WR" 17inch, not sure of exact model.
Tyres are "Stratus" 205/40/17

Note: The pic of the car was taken the day I purchased it
(Also not sure if I posted this in the correct place, sorry )

Cheers,
Sam

Ideally would like the ride height/clearance to be similar to these two:
