    all three of us need them to clear our Porsche brakes on front.

    Rears are cosmetic, and to bring track out to match front.

    Once you see a S3 with spacers, it just looks right , more sure footed and aggressive....

    For any interested I am currently running the below GB with forge:-

    Min 10 people, must be all confirmed orders shipped to one person who will have to distribute; GBP20.00 ea + VAT + shipping.

    Otherwise it's going to be at least apx 23.00 + ship + vat, but Russell has quite rightly pointed out these numbers need to be *definate* as other group buys have attracted the right number of people with only a small proportion actually buying, which is no good to Forge. Not only that, but it means that subsequent GBs are jeapordised, which is no good for anyone.

    The price is for std silver spacers, not anodised, of which if you want will have to have a 20 min order.

    Also, because of the various mods ppl put on their cars, Forge will not recommend the correct spacers, but it's not uncommon for ppl to go for 10mm front and 16mm back.

    either 20+vat x 4 + shipping (spread across all the orders)
    or 23 + vat x 4 + shipping

    Forge can only supply the spacers - get your nuts elsewhere Depends where you source them - i think someone mentioned GBP32 from another thread
