Interesting to see the hub spacers on the rear wheeels. As you say 20 mm may have been better but can't see much wrong with the 25 all said and done. Out if interest where did you buy them from, they appear to be well made units. Also do you hve any intentions to space the fronts as well?
Hi BRC

Here is the link for the spacers:

25mm looks absolutely perfect but I’m yet to have a fully loaded car! It does look like the wheels will clear the arches easily enough though! I’d probably like to space the front 15mm, but that is not enough depth for the bolt on spacers and would require extended bolts which I don’t really like.

I removed the front end today to wrap the grille and to fit my wrapped bumper trims! The bumper removal was quite simple and I was pleased to see that the mesh insert pops out of the grille surround, making it far easier to wrap! I decided to go for a matt black, and am really pleased with the result! I am currently waiting on a carbon fibre splitter which I think will set the front end off perfectly!

Looks ace!!

You've done a few things I'm looking to do to my XE R-sport. I'm a sucker for anything carbon fibre (as long as it's subtle).
Where did you source the side vents please? I'm after the front lip, vents, rear valance and boot spoiler :mrgreen:

Also I'm after 20mm spacers for the rear. Did you have to make any modifications to your OEM hubs or lugs in order to fit the spacer? (i know you fitted 25mm but wondering if you think 20mm would be okay) I'm also running the Venom wheels!

Will be following your thread!
