My mini photoshoot...

It's been a few weeks since the my car had a good clean and it was a nice day so I decided to give it a quick clean, but that turned into a 3 hour session...

I used turtlewax wash, followed by a coat of 3M Finesse-it Finishing polish (borrowed from a bodyshop ;-)) on the front end and bonnet and finished off with some Maguiar's Gold Class wax all over.

I'm pretty happy with the results, shame it wont look the same after a few days driving though..

Haha ;-) didn't notice that!

I'm looking at getting some H&R sport spring with spacers, anyone know what size spacers I can get away with before the wheels start to rub..?

Standard ET alloys then go 10mm front 12mm rear and longer bolts to match

FWIW, SSDD Motorsports can sort you the spring, spacer and extended wheel bolts and locking nuts

Cheers Mega, I have been looking around for the H&R springs as not many places supply them. I'll give them a call and get a quote...

They do have them on this site; http://www.orange-tuning.de/shop/index.php but not sure on which ones and what drop to go for??

Thanks for the positive comments all
