Can anyone point me in the right direction of what needs to be done to get the boot auto opening from the button on the key?

Anyone know what to fit to the St other than the kit from Poland that is struts with springs. Noticed my boot doesn’t move more than a few mm when pressing the key these days can’t remember if it went more than that before but end up having to use the badge to lift every time

I can only find one seller in the uk for those and £105 seems a little steep. Would be happy with the boot lifting just enough to get my hand on the lid to lift it do the standard ones normally manage this mine are now nearly 5 years old and need replacing anyway so thought I’d see if the little upgrade was possible

Is there anyone who is good at this with gas springs if the original is at 540Nm
and if you then increase to 580Nm how much more will it be ,, it is noticeable with 40 extra ..
