My neighbours got some fitted to his Polo, they look quite nice i think.

Your cars looking better now you've got some of the trim back on, looks nice and shiny in the pics.

You didn't have to mess with the breaks (if you got standard) the guy on the site told me my calipers would get in the way

and wheres the best place to get spacers from (hoping to go to a shop so i don't have to wait for postage  :oops: )

i bought my 5 with them on. im not sure wer to get the spacers from? probably a good alloy wheel shop? the spaces should bring the wheel away from the calipers. my calipers havent been touched... :?  :)

Your local Halfords should stock wheel spacers, maybe some other motor spares place?

There universal fit so you don't need to worry about the bolt holes lining up. It will be obvious when you see them, and they do them in different thickness.

One thing to bear in mind is you might need longer wheel bolts depending on how far out you need to space the wheels.

Unlucky, i binned some spacers a couple of months ago because i thought they would be no use.

I don't think there rare exactly, there just very popular with R5's. VW owners seem to like them as well.

i agree they arent really rare but are very hard to get hold of a good set because most people get them refurbed and then sell them on for 250+ if you look hard enough you can get a cheap set but most peolpe just want to keep a hold of them for years lol
