Not done mine yet mate but I've seen vans with them on..this silver one is I believe, wearing 40-20s. That's the only size you can buy for the exact make and model of B9 Berlingo. No one makes any coilover kits, lowering springs are very very limited. Lowered shocks exactly for the B9 car or van don't exist. The rear end is odd since the shock has an eye at both ends and the spring is separate. Believe me we've hunted high and low here. I know H&R make springs for it, but they're 40-20 too.

You can fit the coilover kit to the front from a 307 or C4 but the rear shocks won't fit. 

Plus if you put lower springs on the back than -20 then you have to cut the bump stops. Have a gander under the back of yours and you'll see what I mean. The travel is minimal before you hit them on standard springs.

The white van is mine, with standard height springs. (As yet)

The front coilovers fit fine. The rear set of the kit comprises of springs and shocks. The springs are too short for the standard shocks, and the C4 / 307 shocks do not fit, the end connection is different. The shocks used on the B9 are identical only to the C4 Grand Picasso for which no lowering kit exists. Modifying a shock absorber from a threaded pin to an eyelet and bush, is nigh on impossible.

We have all hunted all over, I've contacted every lowered suspension manufacturers and no one makes a lowering kit or coilovers for the B9.

The vans are popular but the car is not exactly in the bracket to be bought by tuners so it is not catered for by anyone.

Here's a pic of the rear end with lowered springs from the C4 / 307 kit fitted, it needed a tie wire to stop the spring falling out when jacked up or when the suspension unloads driving over a pot hole. You can see why a standard coilover can't be used here.
