What quad exhaust valance have you ordered? The carbon fibre one?

Really want this mod for mine but not keen on the Carbon look
Yes, I am not huge on Carbon Fiber either but I am going to give it a try with just a few well place carbon fiber pieces. They do make that quad valance in matte black fyi.
Oh right I’ve not seen that is it on eBay?

Looking forward to seeing how yours turns out so plenty of pictures please 😀

No but the link is below and it comes in matte black. I contacted the seller and they sent me a picture of the matte color it would be if I went that route but in the end I decide on the Carbon Fibeer. As soon as I get it, I'll take plenty of pics!

Went ahead and put 20mm hub centric spacers on the front rims. I think they look good but perhaps 15mm would be perfect however I don't want to trim the stock studs for them so the 20mm will be fine.

Nice! Do you have spacers on the rears and if so do you get any wheel rub? I wanted to put the centrifuge wheels from my f type on to the XE but the rears to too wide (and I was too scared of the reaction from my wife).

Yes, I did 20mm in the rear first thinking the front was fine but once I did the rear I felt like the fronts need to be pulled out some. I wanted go try 15 mm up front but was afraid it would require me to cut the stock studs down some. As far as rubbing so far I have not felt or noticed any what so ever.

This may be a daft question but why would you have to shorten the studs for the 15mm spacers and not the 20mm?
I would have thought the standard studs would be to short for 15mm already and even shorter still for the 20mm, or am I missing something?

I used Hub Centric spacers like these.
