So I’ve just fitted Eibach Pro Spacers 12mm front/ 15mm rears; M12x1.5, 40mm bolts. No adjustments needed at all, and superb fit/finish. I have gone for these sizes for now as keeping with the original tire widths. I am just awaiting the production delayed Pro Street S kit to sort those arch gaps. I took some pics during the process, just in case anyone needed reference.

Looking good! Spacers were the 1st thing we did makes a big difference to the look of the car and we ended up on Eibach Pro Street S coilovers as well.

I have a project thread in the GTi section if you want a few more ideas

Nice, fitting spacers and keeping the rear dust shields was always an issue but looks like these work just fine (and look great btw) 👍
They also seem to be considerably more wallet friendly than the previous solution - the ST kit - so that's a bonus!

Ah - I get it!

It can be stub axle cap or bearing cap, depending on what names you grew up with !
It did not occur to me that the centre hole in a spacer would need to fit closely on the dust cap, but obviously it helps to keep the whole assembly reasonably balanced if it's a snug fit, not mention aligning the bolts and fitting into the centre bore in the wheel!

next question - are they light alloy so as to not add unsprung weight, or steel so you can bolt directly into them, rather through them?
