I've got the opposite problem - the composite boot lid is so light, it nearly whacks off the back window it flies up so fast!
I couldn't see any way of adjusting it, short of changing/replacing the torsion springs?

Some of the lads on LOC have made up a gas strut like some that are used for bonnet lifters. I think that with the gas strut that you can remove all the bars and springs that are used already.
