Well.......I’m going to blame Ryan for having to wait for a vital part which is on back order at VW even though it’s not his fault at all

In all seriousness, the new rear bumper is all ready to go on apart from 1 piece so it’s just a waiting game at the moment. It might arrive tomorrow or it might arrive in 3 months

All 4 wheels ceramic coated today. I prefer to do them before tyres are fitted but I didn’t have the opportunity with this set so it took ages removing them from the van, washing, degreasing and 2 coats of Carbon Collective platinum wheels. Also roped up the coating on my calipers while the wheels were off.

Wow, didn’t realise how close they were to those arches! Must be a worry sometimes

No it all clears. The rears by about 1mm but clear is clear. Obviously I don’t drive it like that, that’s just aired out :) The fitment was worked out to the nearest mm. Fronts you get some leaway and can play around with spacers and wheel offsets. It’s a balancing act between clearing the strut, clearing the calipers and clearing the arches. I’m currently running 6mm spacers on the front but could go to 8mm if I wanted. Rears are a bit more critical as you don’t have much room to play with. I have no spacers on the rear so the calculations worked out perfectly.

This was when I first tested it with these wheels. It was super close so I put a bit of tape on the rim just to see if it touched it, then slowly dropped it down mm by mm. She’s tight!!! Image
