    That kit is superb quality, I've got them, not fitted yet, but should look awesome I think. They give my wheels an et of 25 and 30 which is about perfect on 8 inch wide rims. You won't be dissapointed. And yeh you can get hubcentric cheaper on eBay, but then you need bolts, lockers, a key. So its good value imo

    Cheers J B . just had a look but they all seem to be 20mm and the odd 11mm 5mm

    superkarls got a point as the kit has everything included so i might go with that.
    ive looked at the h&r spacers but there a bit pricey !

    Loads of 15mm ones on there, including the ones i just listed. They usually fit both 5x100 AND 5 x 112.

    I bought mine from the bay for around £50 iirc, just never used them as the brakes still fouled the wheel and my new wheels are a better offset.

    Look for hucentric spacer

    has anyone got any pics with 20mm and 15mm spacers on with standard height suspension, took my spacers off at the same time as my billys and h&r springs, was just wondering how the s3 looks with spacers and standard height? i prefer the car at standard height (must be getting old) but loved the stance with the spacers!

    10mm
    15mm
    20mm

    I sent the guy a message to see if he would do a deal and got the front and rear spacers all the bolts a set of mcgard locking bolts and delivery all for £136 so you can save a fair bit. Another company that people have used is PW motorsport he wil do a mixed order of 4 spacers for £100!

    My new ones are s4 reps, and they are too much on the rears with 20mm. Had them on the standard avus wheels and they were perfect, they have radial bolts too. Will reply to your pm soon as I get home, cheers
