Does anybody know how we stand if the Rocco is lowered regarding the manufacturers warranty as its crying out for those -35mm springs?

Lowering it is apparently a nightmare if u want to keep ACC. Most dealers will try and get any claims under warranty but if VW finds out then the will probably refuse claims relating to suspension. The person who carried out the mod should pick up the liability for any refused claims. I have heard them argue this though.

can you explain 'a nightmare' in what way? As in the install or the operation of the ACC
absolute rubbish that its a nightmare, yeah there may be warranty issues, if you change the springs you still keep the original dampers and ACC, if you go coilovers you lose the ACC damping, APS did mine and set it up and have no issues, others have done over 10,000 miles on aftermarket springs

H&R 35mm, KWs 20mm, an owner has the Eibach 25mm pro kit and said it gives you 15mm due to the ACC
