If you're lowered then you may need to trim the rear bumper & where it attaches, front will rub on full lock unless you get some spacers, then it still may rub, fail on the MOT that as well :(

you should make sure they are the right the right offset and right fitting for the r5 gt turbo and you should only need to take the lip off the rear bumper
