    lots of us use spacers, look in the classified and there is a set for sale, 10mm cost £70, usually around £110 for H&R Hubcentric.

    Happy to sell you the rears only Ryan.

    Hopefully managed to secure a second hand set of wheels just like yours, 18" suits my requirement and pocket perfectly so that I don't have to compromise on Tyres, I have a thing about Rubber :)

    Car is at AP Racing for the next 2 days, I had a tour of the factory yesterday, very impressive. The most impressive thing about the new Calipers is weight, they are so light, may not be as pretty as the RS4 set up but with the new wheels and eventually coil-overs my car is going to be just about perfect for me :)

    The set up is a 6 piston kit utilising the calipers they use for the M3 CSL upgrade so plenty of stopping power, it's having bespoke braided hoses fitted plus 5.1 fluid change. I have opted for Black Calipers with the corporate Yellow lettering.
