    New front and rear top mounts arrived today

    Do I need any other parts for the coils install?

    Drop links? Bolts?

    everything else should be fine, unless the bolts have seized up but on a 2006 car you should be fine, just have to order some coils and you good to go!

    So these spacers...

    I currently have 8J wheels on ET35, but they were cheap reps and 1 is foobarred, so have bought me a set of refurbed 'old RS4' style genuine Audi alloys from an S4 Cab. These are 8J too, but on an ET43. I understand enough about the offset to know that an 8mm spacer on each side would make them sit in the same place as current wheels, but I reckon they would look better even further out...

    so, what offset/width are the wheels shown above to know how far out I should go?

    Cheers,
    Tim

    Thanks mate.
    Appreciate the photos when they come.
    I want to change my wheels as i hate the offset but spacers are an option (although spacers are illegal in Australia).
    If the standard wheels look good with spacers, i will just go down that path for now (can't afford new wheels atm).

    I bid and won for 10mm and 15mm H & R track+ spacers on eBay, from a member on here

    Ordered my coils from DPM this morning.

    Decided after many recommendations to try the Joms. To be fair the car is mainly used for commuting a 10 mile round trip 3 times a week.
    The odd motorway run and a trip to the peaks to blow the cobwebs out of the air filter!

    They got a 2 year warranty and if they fail after that, I'll invest in a 'proper' set!

    Can't wait to get em on now, just need to order some lamin x or maybe pick some up when I'm in the states at the end of the month.

    Oh yeah, gonna swap the my09 rear lights for 11's too.

    Can anyone recommend a good place to have the coils fitted?
