    Contact Damian@DPM-Performance, he is a forum sponsor and will sort you out. I bought a set of coilovers from him and he was more than helpful

    From looking at his site the smallest thickness adapters you can get are 20mm, which will bring your wheel ET down to ET15. You will have to wait for another person (N8!! lol) who knows more about wheel fitments/offsets to say whether they would rub or not

    Not gonna happen as the ofset is too low on 8L wheels and adapters will just make it worse.

    As above, the offset will be too low with adaptors on the newer shape A3.
