    It does look good.

    The spacers will finish it nicely, what width are you going for?

    I think it's shame to have the tidy looking grille let down by the number plate in the windscreen if I'm honest.

    I know about the spacer job, just nagociating a price with my mate with that cupra on a set of 10mm spacers for the rear, so long as they are hub centric and still waiting on my long bolts and locking wheel nuts to arrive too, as for the number plate, I don't drive with it like that through the day it was just coz I was having a cleaning setion with about 10 lads (cars) so looked good with it off and went to ultimate dubs on Sunday so was showing off really lol but thanks for all the comments guys

    Looking good, silver is hard to beat when its clean.

    As said spacers will finish it off.

    Whats coilovers you running? might just be the pics but it is lower at the back?

    A standard 18"x8" s line alloy is ET42, so as I have a 19"x8" ET50 wheel I need an 8mm spacer to get it back to standard ET, as for camber etc Ive never done any of that as the tire wear would be uneven, so if your running on 9" wheel that's 12.5mm extra of wheel at both sides (25mm whole) so if your wheels are Et41 then minus 12.5 of of 41 to give you an ET of about 29-29.5 so your wheels will deffinately catch the arches as my last wheels where 8" ET 35 and rubbed pretty good, I know it's alot to take in but trust me, I did the calculations lol

    It's all backward mate you will not need spacers et29 is wide mate as in getting close to sticking out the arches ET50 like mine are tucked way in the arch so I need spacers to push them away from the car just hope this all helps I know when I first heard about wheels and width and ET I just couldnt make any sense of any of it
