Fatter S8

Decided my S8 needed to look a little bit wider,so after taking advice from James at http://www.audidoctor.co.uk/ I called up Virdee Autos  020 89619042 and got some 15mm spacers sent up to Cheshire.VERY good price.

Here's a before





and after







Quite subtle,but I think it definately looks better.Nowt wrong with a plump arse!

Nice mate, really nice.

S8 V10 is sub-zero cool imho....
Virdee

That looks just right jeff!

You can see in the after pic, the tyres flush!

Get some more pics of your car - looks amazing!
Marc R

It could use a nice detail....

S8 parker's do it in 2 spaces    

seriously, rare is a car park space that you can get a D2 S8 in, never mind a D3, without parking across 2!

Does look more planted stance-wise with the spacers

More pics please.

Yes, more pics please, oh and welcome to the forum

It's a bit of a struggle,sometimes taking 3 moves to get onto a ramp.Concrete width restrictions have to be approached with care as well.But really it's no big deal and it's only a tad longer than a boggo A6.
Virdee

Looks sweet jeff

And Jules you took the words out of my mouth re your air ride, hahaha!
RS4Jules

Ah i'll have to look out for you,i work all over macc and my work is based in poynton  



Very funny Virdee

Hi Jeff, have the spaces done anything to the ride quality?

Same question.  

Super cool look!
Virdee

They shouldn't affect the ride quality in any way

All sizes in stock

EDIT, are they already ?!

Jeff,
Is yours lowered in any way, if so, is it with links or through VAG?
Fireman dan

Big arses.

Gotta love that
Delboy

Was your spacers 15mm each side or 15mm total for the axle?
