    15mm spacers + 50mm Eibach Sportlines

    Hi all,

    Currently already got the 15mm rear spacers fitted and it scrapes pretty bad if I've got someone in the back of the car (S-line with standard 18s)

    If I've got Eibachs fitted I'm guessing I'd need to get smaller spacers even though the springs are stiffer? Any advice/recommendations would be greatly appreciated

    Nath

    I got 11's on the back of my sportback and no rubbing at all with rear passengers. I have trimmed the tab tho. Think you can get away with 12's aswell

    Really that's worrying as I nearly just bought 50mm springs and 15mm spacers!

    The rear of the A3 8P depending on the wheels can usually only take a maximum 12mm/13mm spacer without any rubbing and even then you're on the limit.

    Think the girlfriend may take offence! Although, no girlfriend = no rubbing (in more ways than one?)
