    As above i'm looking for some spacers to allow me to drop my car without my hottuning coilovers (not yet fitted) fouling the tyres.

    I believe i need 5mm spacers is this correct?

    I went to Halfrauds today but they only had 3mm or 9.5mm spacers
    so i held off buying until i'd asked the brains on here

    Also if it is 5mm i require, where can i get some?

    Thanks peoples

    5mm should do just the trick

    You may wish to order the spacers from R-Tec (Ask for Jay with the BMW and tap him up for some discount because he's a member on here) Or I use these guys http://wheelsworldwide.co.uk/contact/ as it is quite local to me... and I worked for them quite a few years ago when they were South West Tyres Ltd

    You will need to ensure when fitting the spacers that you are still able to get 6 complete (360 degree) turns on the bolt BY HAND. If not you will require longer bolts too

    Moved to chassis and brakes section so that you can also use this thread when it comes to fitting your coilovers

    These are the best Ive come across. They are hubcentric and the quality is awsome. Not the cheapest, but IMO the best....http://www.europerformance.co.uk/pag...-spacers.mhtml
