It's all about the V8.
I have them on my B6 and have no clearance issues at all and I have AP coilovers fitted with about a 50mm drop.

The wheels have an offset of ET42, I have fitted 5mm spacers on the front but only for the aesthetics.

Oh forgot to say I'm running 235/35-19's all round and they are pretty stretched on the back but I don't think 245's would cause any problems either.

Have you got more pics and have u ever go lower that that height . Will 9.5 tuck in the arch or will it touch the lip of the arch let me know .

The rear is about as low as it will go with the AP coilovers, but I have had the car fully loaded and the rears tucked into the arches nicely. I think it would be possible to drop the car another inch and not have any problems.

Thought about 9.5" all round as well but I wasn't to sure about the clearance so stuck with the 8.5" on the front, think it would look good if they fit.
