    Evening all

    Read various threads on here recently and H&R hub-centric seems to be the way to go but what size?

    I've got standard s-line suspension and wheels with no plans to change either.

    Also should front and back be the same size/width or should I go wider at the back?

    10mm front and 15mm rear seems to be a nice set up

    as I cant be arsed to remove the screw / modify the rear wheel liner and as I tend to travel on lots of bumpy roads then I went for 10 mm all round

    I stuck with 10mm alround for the same reasons, basically I knew there would be no rubbing.
    Having seen jonnyc's car I can safely say that the 15mm on the back does look better!

    Has anyone run 15mm rear spacers with a 35mm drop on standard wheels?

    Hubcentric ones you are looking at around £60 a pair, the cheapest place to get them is US ebay.

    They look good he also does 10mm ones.

    What about 10mm on front and 12mm on rear has anybody made that work without rubbing?

    My 3.2 sport 54 plate.

    Fitted Eibach pro kit springs, which is 20-25 lower than my original sport springs.

    18" S3 wheels.

    H&R spacers 10mm front and 15mm rear spacers (kit from TT Shop has everything you need in one).

    Before - there's a slight shadow so it's not as clear as I'd hoped.

    After - It's as low as I wanted to go and no rubbing issues even on bumpy roads

    Thanks for the pics mechanic.

    Anyone know how much lower the standard s-line suspension is compared to the sport? Just trying to gauge where mechanics sits in comparison.

    think it is 10mm with the s3 being a further 10mm lower. the sport will be 15mm lower than the standard car.

    if like mechanic said he has the eibach springs on it should only really now be s-line ride height. its what have on my sport and can notice a drop but i'd only say to s-line height.

    Sport is 15mm lower than standard
    S line is 25mm
    S3 is 35mm

    So the eibach springs take it to between S line ans S3 and once settled are closer to S3 height.

    K-dash did you do maths at school??
