    To go to stage 2, you're only looking at the standard £50 upgrade charge, so would make sense.

    Cheers :) I may put some spacers on once I get coilovers. Unfortunatley the 30mm springs just arent enough!
    Ive already had a cupra r splitter on and I didnt really like it, they look awesome on photos but on mine it was clear it want meant to be on the car, maybe just my **** fitment!

    225 40 18 Falkens all round. To get the rears to fit you will need a 5mm spacer to clear the rear spring seat.
    I'm running 15mm rear spacers now and they look awesome :)

    Cool, I have the 225,40,18 already and I have +10mm spacers for the front and +20mm for the back so should be ok. Just in two minds whether to order the 3sdm or some bbs lm??????

    Well I had coilovers on order but they got recalled for dodgy rear shocks!
    That freed up the money for the front mount.
    Today it's been booked in for a custom 3" car back with milltek style tips.
    That will make it 3" turbo back and ready for stage 2!
