    I take it you're after 'engine spacers'? these come in 15mm, 20mm and 25mm. A guy on Edition 38 sells them and others on ebay mark 4 golf engine/dogbone spacers 20mm aluminium | eBay

    They fit/go under your oe mounts and most kits include longer bolts.

    Edited for accuracy, hope you don't mind.
    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    I helped a friend do his mk4 golf recently,
    He went for 15mm items and its now very close to the bonnet!
    I recently had a "whoops" on a speed hump i miss judged, It was not the sump at all that came into contact, It was the front edge of the sub frame, so for me they seem pointless.
    I also read a thread on E38 regarding vibrations caused by these not being fitted bang in line, Although the car we did was fine i will not be doing mine,

    I ask questions because i change my mind so much. If i ask questions you have already covered... just leave it be?
