    thanks mate, much appreciated! I love how it looks now just still trying to decide wether i can live with it this low on a daily basis, also got some 19's to put it on which should raise it slightly but cannot afford tyres at the minute haha

    Don't think there's alot you can do to stop catching, your wheels aren't that wide and looking at the pics the ET is high too as they look tooled really close the car (as in not wide)

    Ye just big one at the top of the arch in the middle not really needed and gives about another 5mm clearance.

    Its good tbh mate, my cousin has KW V2's on his A3 and when he drove it yday he said it didn't feel that different and didn't justify the extra £500

    Got them for £200 Collected off DPM Performance, i'm sure they've got an account on here

    Looks far too low at the front, if you ask me - it must make 3-pointers (or anything that requires full-lock) a pain in the backside!

    And I'm not even going to start on speedbumps.

    ...But hey, each to their own!

    haha i reckon the front the car would hit the deck before they're wound right the way down, even when the above pics there was still loads of thread left, the back are as far down as they'll go without the adjusters in

    Space that sh*t lol, looking good Ry, get your 19"s and and some 10 / 15mm spacers then worry about it rubbing.

    Anyone who says its too low isn't hardcore enough ha ha, i'll now patiently await the imminent debate!

    btw, what 19"s you got?
