    I'm keeping my 17" Avus wheels and decking it on them. I'm going to need spacers as they are tucked in quite a bit! Can 20mm on the rear be done? Will 15mm look like a good difference?

    20mm is fine too, anything above 10mm and it'll look alot nicer

    I was looking at 20mm and 15mm but managed to get some 15mm / 10mm at a decent price and they look mint with the 17" avus. I think anything bigger would look a bit OTT. I'll get some photos up if I can.

    There was a company that was clearing out some old stock from their warehouse and they put a few sets up on ebay with starting bids of 1P! They've all gone now but I got a full set for around 35

    Nicely done pal! I bought some cheapo ones that were just cheapo, not discounted. Put them on the Clio and within weeks two of the bolts had sheared leaving half their body in the hub.

    Sounds good, get some pics up!
    I'm seriously considering a set of LM reps. Which reps did you go for?

    Unfortunately mine didn't come with bolts so I paid Bill 45 for some of the bolts he supplies so I know they are decent quality. The spacers though are top notch quality and anodised black.
