    General concensus is that 5mm spacers are fine with standard bolts. 4-5 turns has been fine in my experience, although I feel a little safer with more!

    As already said 5 mm is defo the max to run with non hubcentric spacers.Standard bolts are just enough

    ok no worries. as ive already tried them and felt they were not as tight as i felt happy with am prob just going to get some longer ones anyway. end of the days these things keep you on the road.

    like i said, ruined a bolt before as i forgot you have to be so careful not to over do them.

    i know i know.. am not no. just never bought one. ive always been good doing the bolts up mate, i normally know when to stop but i just forgot today and just put to much pressure on and spun it. how much are they mate and whats a good mid range on ?

    bolts shouldn't cost me much for 8 longer ones.

    good and bad update,

    good- got a s line front bumper, so front end will have a freshen up and also got some new lighting inside.

    bad- random airbag fault light come on, tried unplugging battery for and hour etc and a friend plugged in vagcom but for some reason it wouldn't let him access things. gutted about it to be honest as had a look online and it sounds like a expensive fix which i haven't budgeted for.

    not like i can ask what to do as what can i do apart from plug in a proper vagcom system but even then it must mean something has gone wrong for it to come on. 'sign'

    Doesn't look to bad but has abit of peppering and the odd paint mark.

    Not sure when it is all going on but not in too much of a rush.

    thanks!

    Fran/Warren I had a very similar problem and it turnt out to be the airbag wire had split off from the connector. The wire is under the seat and apprently is a common problem that with the seat moving back and forth alot over time this causes wear in the wire. All I had to do is solder my wire back to the connector and the air bag light disappeared. Hop this helps.
