    Somebody needs to take the hit and try! They are a bit of a mental design for an OEM wheel.

    Good find Lee, Sheldons are just down the road from me, hear good things about them all the time! They will look sick on the right car with the right stance.

    Having just fitted weitecs and my mate also i would recommend them but not if you want it on its arse proper.
    The fronts will sit really low but the backs not as much,i am even getting ready for taking out the adjusters just to get that bit more.

    same as my weitecs on my polo 9n gti front went very low but i have to remove the adjusters for the rear and shorten the bump stops on the shocker so it wasnt bouncy! looked sweet though when i get mine the adjusters wont be out the box LOL:rockwoot:

    LOL.....excuse my ignorance but how do you shorten the bump stops and what does this achieve.
    They have only been fitted a few weeks so will still settle some more,but i'm not very patient.At the bottom of the strut there is also a black rubber piece i even considered removing or atleast replacing with a thinner piece to get a few more mm's

    Cheers Jules

    I don't understand the KW V2s and Jules' weitecs go the same lowness all the way round 65mm, but mine looks ALOT lower than his

    I think they would look great if the oem centre cap fits from the 8P2 S3 alloys.

    I love the polished/anthracite look, wonder how much they weigh ?
