    What size spacers did you go with in the end really keen to see these in the flesh had my car out yesterday and got me thinking about them again - pardon my ignorance can you see the actual spacers on the car when fitted I know you said there was to much silver presume you mean you can see it!.

    Just looking seems the DRA version is the better to go for as you maintain your original bolts is this what you have? also saw a photo on kam racing they do them in black?!

    Yeah you can see them, at the moment they stick out like a sore thumb..will Hammerite them along with the hubs before Trax so it all fits in nicely. Couldn't find any in black when I got them which is really annoying as it teases me on the box with the pictures of the black ones!! You about this evening? I'll bring it over if so.

    Yep DRA. Bolted to the hub so you just use existing bolts from wheel to spacer!

    I mailed Kam racing as their listings confusing as shows H&R, but manufacturer as eibach - they replied and they dont do the spacers in black for the clio. Booooooooooooooooooooooo.

    That's exactly how I wanted mine done!! How much did it cost in the end? I need to scratch that itch, and stop scratching the flaky material on the back of my steering wheel! :tearsofjoy:

    Top job again from Royal. Looks GREAT Ben. Good times......!

    'Careful' if you're putting the RS badge back on again.....*some* of us have had issues with it fitting / marking the leather in trying to do so......
