    Ok Phantom, i got a snap when I got to training - the lads looked at me like i was a pillock so i hope your grateful :P

    Sorry for the quality, i took em with my phone again

    Ive got no issues with the height, although i do agree, a gnats cockhair lower would look even better

    A little comparison.

    10mm @ the rear:




    15mm @ the rear:



    Not a great deal in it to be honest, and at least you know you wont rub with 10mm

    I know it's just the light/pic but your rear lenses looked slightly smoked in the first side-on shot. Looks good especially with the Ibis, reminds me of the old MKII Golf GTI 16v rear light clusters.

    Wow, what a difference the spacers make! Both cars look fantastic. Has it improved the handling? Even with just 10mm spacing that's gonna be a 20mm extension in track which seems a lot.

    I can't say I've driven the car in anger as of yet to notice a difference, but hoping to get it back on track soon.
    I can say that the 10mm has not caused any problems around the rubbish roads and speed humps in London, no embarassing rubbing on the inner arch etc.
    Some of the other guys that have had them on for longer may be able to shed more light...

    jamie, just wondering are you anywhere near e&c?

    I saw a blue S3 waiting at the lights near the roundabouts a couple nights ago.

    Cheers.

    I'll need a 42" monitor for the next one in August

    Look at the reflection in Ali's paint work, and thats after 1000+miles. I think he uses Jeffs acrylic which is supposed to be the dogs on Sprint paint.

    Thinking of going for 10s front and 15s rear, they make the car look just right for my liking.

    Most kits come with longer bolts but no mention of locking nuts/bolts. What do you guys have fitted?

    haha..

    Im away actually that weekend, will be around on the monday though if thats any good?? Not in a massive rush to get the coilovers at the moment as I have just spent a fortune on a new clutch etc..

    To keep on topic the car looks perfect with the spacers, all you need now is a set of H&R's ; )

    Will be back in the south east on Monday - next time!
    The H&R's will come..... hopefully!!! Then the car will look spot on!
    Wishing you luck at inters - hoping the S3 has a good stab at the RS4 and 911 C4S
