Turtle Ice waxed & Eibach spacers fitted

Used Turtle Wax Ice for the first time today - it's a pretty cool nanotech wax that doesn't go white and powdery, you can use it on black plastic, bodywork, glass and plastic and you can apply it in the sunshine too. Used Turtlewax Nanotech wheel wax too - supposed to keep off the brake dust, but I'll have to wait and see.

After the clean, I fitted 20mm Eibach Pro hubcentric lug bolted spacers on the rears.



Chrome grilles are back on temporarily whilst the black ones are being sprayed at Teddy's bodyshop (SSDD Motorsport), along with the ACS bodykit bits. Silver indicator bulbs in now too.



Car looks better with staggered wheels I reckon.



Thanks to Peppernick for the spacer advice, and Roy @ CA Automotive for supplying them speedily and at a great price.

Nice looking 7. Your wheels are 18" correct?

Please excuse the stupidity of this question for you more experienced. The eibach 20mm spacers, I assume they push the whole wheel outward 20mm? Is there any downside to using spacers?

They are 19" wheels - I'm sure they'll look bigger once it's dropped.

And yep, the spacers push the whole wheels out
