Looks great !!
May consider doing this on mine at some stage ! Do you mind me asking what they set you back and where you purchased?

Also does anything need to be done in terms of geo setup after fitting ?

Looks great! Are you on standard springs?

I have a set of 15mm spacers to fit which were a bargain from Amazon
https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/s/ref=is_s?k=5+x+130+15mm+spacers

I may lower the car to complete the look but not sure how much to drop it by and think it's probably best to go with a coil over adj kit at the same time to refresh springs and dampers

I got these from an auction site..

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Porsche-Boxster-Cayenne-15mm-Hubcentric-Wheel-spacers-and-Radius-Bolts-5x130/302005355729

..but if you buy that, you'll need to ask for the correct bolts (the ones above are wrong). Cost £150 for the 4 spacers and 20 bolts.
Yes, i'll probably need to get the geo checked, I dont think it'll be out but may need tweaking.

Refresh springs and dampers also on list at some stage too so maybe I'll fit these at some time then get fill geo.

Growing list Grin

Looks good.

Did you look into Mtec? HC are they way to go of course, I've just put spacers on an old Toyota LC which is unlikely to go over 70mph and they cost £120 with bolts and not HC, the HC type for my car were closer to £300. A car that's capable of 200 i'd want to know those spacers are top notch.

It won't be doing anything even near 200mph with me inside it, that's for sure. Thumb Cop I used mtec's on my last two 6t's, but this is the first time I put them on the front as well.

Yes, that is standard springs, it was sitting a little high when the pics were taken, I expect it has settled down overnight after being jacked up to remove the wheels.

Looks great thumbsup
I ordered 15mm & 18mm black RSS spacers set from JZM. Cant wait to fit them! Going by your pics the stance is awesome with 15mm and stock ride height.

Looks good, have you noticed any difference in steering weight or feel e.g. More/less tram lining etc?

Also do you think there's any chance of the tyres touching the arch lips?

Cheers Mac

Not much difference if anything at all.
Last time, i installed only rear spacers and that made the car feel a little heavier and planted at the rear.
This time i did all four, cant feel much difference. Maybe a little less overall feeling through the wheel if anything.

I dont think they will rub, not with stock ride height anyway.

Mine did on the rear with 295 Conti's on stock suspension over speed bumps etc, it may have been a combination of the wider tyres and camber settings. I rolled the arches and it's been fine since and also on my last geo I added more negative camber.

No one else seems to have a problem though.
