    I understand that mate, but you have now given the info that Highwayman asked for before. at least armed with those percentages people can make an accurate assessment as to where they can get the cheapest price :thumbsup:

    Well i've already got a set of 10mm's on the rear but i'm considering moving them to the front and getting a set of 12mm's for the rear.

    So have we clarified where's cheapest or is there enough of us up for a group buy??

    Depending on price and whether wheelbolts are included, you can count me in for a set of 12mm.

    I know this is a topic which has been done to death but... Are 15mm spacers on the rear going to cause me grief? I'm not lowering the suspension or anything so i'd imagine i'd get away with it unless i've got a fatty in the back.....no?

    They come with extended bolts but not the locking nuts. Locking nuts are available direct from McGard though.

    £195 for the springs, fitting would be £125.

    Thanks,

    My 2.0T FSI S-LINE Special Edition rubbed all the time on 15mm spacers and that was with no suspension mods at all. Everything i went over speed bumps, any medium dips in the road, sometimes when cornering and definately when people were in the back.

    i didn't however remove the magical screw that people now recommend. I now have 12mm on my S3 and all good....

    12mm is safe bet. :o.k:

    Lol

    If you look at one of your wheel bolts, it'll have the bolt head, then the bolt seat and then the threads. The Bolts seat will either be radius or tapered. After market wheels are usually tapered and standard are usually radius.

    Right took a bolt off and I think I have radius. The seat has a rounded curve to it. As mentioned before wheels are totally stock 5-arm (RS6) design.
