I can view only the first photo. The remaining photos require me to sign into Google. Maybe you can change set the permissions on all but the first photo to match the first photo so that viewing your photos does not require signing into Google.

Well I must say that overall, a much better ride. Softer over the bumps and cornering greatly improved. Steering feels a little more lighter also. No rubbing, even over speed bumps. Not lowered and don't intend too.

I done 20mm all round, but will be increasing the rears to 25mm to finish it off.

I don't expect bearing problems with this car weighing less, and had 40mm hubcentric spacers on my VW Touran for 4 years and never had a problem.

Any comments/questions welcome

Would be useful to know which spacers you used and the source?

Assume they supplied longer studs/nuts?

If anything in my post offends you please let me know, I may wish to offend you again. ;)

Hi David,

I used a company called LMD UK LTD. eBay item number: 323091083131

Speak to Michael, great guy and very helpful. These spacers are very good quality and extended bolts/locks also are good quality.

Looks nice. And you got those wheels from another i3 with 20's? In reference to your 'rides softer/higher' comments.
I have 19's and if I keep these as-is, I'll at least put spacers on to widen the track so it doesn't feel so tippy.
