    depends on the year mate. If it's AGU, there are two tyres again depending on it's age.

    What reg is it?

    tough call. if it's a 98 MY it'll be an M8 spline. If it's a MY99 car it'll be M10.

    Would need to see a pic of the drive flange, or a pic of the top of the gearbox to tell you either way mate.

    To be fair, you'll need the m6 to remove the standard clutch to flywheel bolts and the m12 for the flywheel to crankshaft bolts.

    As prawn says, 100mm shafts-m8, 108mm shafts-m10.

    Buy the whole set basically!
