    Hey Cwash, don't listen to Simon, you and I both know we have the steering wheel on the correct side ;-)

    Cw, I'm "3dr" from the 'tex... I'm glad you, like me, are bridging the gap between the two forums: I think there's a lot to be gained by sharing knowledge across the pond.

    Your SPBK looks stunning. The drop is perfect, imho. I can hardly wait to get my bilsteins.

    What spacers are you going for? H&R hub-centrics?

    I look forward to seeing how you get on with the dieselgeek s-s.

    -Ben.

    Thanx, Ben, im probably going to get 8mm all around maybee 10mm in the back. I was thinking H&R but ive found them to be rather pricey. Ive been quoted around $200 US + another 30 or so for the bolts. That equates to $230 bucks i could have spent towards a descent set of tires. What do you think about a cheapo option?

    Also ive found you guys across the water to be very knowledgable, so i hope we can continue to bridge the gap.

    I noticed something else that is differtent from my sportback. Take a close look at the handbrake. The area area where the handbrake sits is completely recessed whereas in my sportback only the half closest to the drivers side is recessed and the in other half it is the same hieght as the rest of the console and contains the cigarette lighter/12V socket.

    This caught my eye because I saw the cable for the roadangel/tomtom/whatever come from under the armrest.

    Any chance of some close ups Cwash of the stereo, and under your arm rest.

    Was the spoiler a standard fit over there?

    Spoiler is part of the sports package in the US (correct me if wrong, Cw).

    "Cupholder" console is also US specific.

    And that ain't no roadangel or tomtom, it's a Valentine One radar/laser detector.

    (Someone should start a thread on hardwiring a radar detector in that general area.)
