    Just fitted a set of 18" BBS CHs (cheers to Spin140:thumbsup:) and as you would expect the studs that came with the wheels are longer to accomodate the different offset.
    Also they have a straight taper on the `seat` section of the stud, where as the OEMs have a radius.

    So, how do I get a set of locking nuts to suit this new arrangement?

    Thanks guys.

    Unfortunately i've just sold a set, otherwise i could have helped you out.

    Speak to Rimstyle or Phil @ PW Motorsport as i'm sure they'll be able to sell you a set.

    Thanks mate.

    Did you notice that the OEMS studs and longer versions for the new rims have a different shaped seat?

    Yes mate, it is very moreish this modding lark.:yes:

    Just a shame the S3s clutch is so poor or I would be looking at more power. Stage 2+ is very tempting.
    Hopefully I will get a go in a SACHs equipped car at Inters to see what the pedal feels like and decide whether its a future mod.

    This could get expensive.
    Cheaper than buying a new car though.

    Cheers

    Kinda hoping thats the cause.
    I have `bumper to bumber` most days so needs to be fairly traffic friendly.

    Cheers

    Can you not just drag/drop or copy paste into a post?

    Thanks
