My car came with spacers, I think they are 5mm. I probably wouldn't have noticed a difference?

Got my spacer package from Maxspeed today. Very well made. It will be a few weeks before I get to try them.

Default I couldn't wait

Installed one side as I don't have room on the otherside while the car is still in the garage. So couple of weeks before I do that and first drive.

Note that the 17mm spacer diameter is less than 5mm. I spoke to Nello, owner at Maxspeed Motorsport and checked with the designer. This was done to keep the unsprung weight down. No issue in driveability and you can hardly notice it.

Suspension has not settled so you will see less camber in the pictures so it will only look better after the first drive.

Cyber, pics look great! Are you 100% stoked or would you adjust either if you were to do it over?

I am happy with the setup, front and rear are even to the fenders. Front were the main problem.

Am having 7mm spacers fitted all round by Litchfield next month. Will post pics when the work’s been done. Iain Litchfield tried out various sized spacers on his T and he felt that 7mm all round was the best set up, in his opinion.

Cyberbug, very nice work. In the future, use 2 wheel bolt guides, not just one. You don't want to nick those big calipers.

I could have gone 7mm in the back but not front.
the set I was looking at had options of 5/5, 5/14, 5/17. Based on my measurements I was confident with 17 when ordering as I wanted an even look not staggered.

temps are still down here, after the first drive I’ll take more shots.

i went with this set as I really wanted the. Matching titanium bolts

The titanium bolts will make a nice finishing touch.
