    Great new addition mate. Very nice I liked kats when I sat in them, is that the bucket rears too?

    Best interior mod I did was the mk5 GTI seats so much more supportive.

    Cheers mate!!

    They don't compare to the RS4 bucket seats my brother had in his S3 but still loads better. When I sat in D.K's seats I found there was better support for the lower back which I really liked.

    Bucket rears also mate. I was actually looking at the MK5 GTI seats also but then managed to get these for a great price so went for them

    My fav update so far..................................new wheels are now on :)

    Headed down to Goodrims yesterday with the wheels and new spacers all ready to go on. I initially was planning on wrapping these in 235/40/18 tyres but when we test fitted the front wheels we decided it would be best to stick to 225's based on how close the wheel sits to the coilovers.

    Even though I have 2 decent tyres which I could have re-used, I decided to go for 4 new Toyo T1 sport tyres. The wheels are sitting just as I wanted within the arches with plenty of room between the spokes and the Brembo calipers.

    Went over to D.K's after to get some quick snaps on his DSLR as it would be murder taking iPhone pics of these. Can't wait to get some proper photos of the car now

    They look really really good but if you went for et30 you would have got the 235 tyre on there

    It's difficult changing the LCR wheels as they look so good. These Rota's look spot on good choice!!!

    As I've said before El, probably one of only two aftermarket wheels that I think are perfect for the LCR. Looks spot on. Not too pleased then... :D

    I hear you mate but unfortunately these wheels don't come in that offset so have had to improvise. Still think I have managed to pull them off well :)

    It really is, kept changing my mind on so many different sets but something about these stood out to me so I took the gamble. Glad I did!!!

    Cheers buddy

    Cheers mate, awesome colour. Pictures don't do them justice really

    Cheers mate, I am totally relieved they turned out as I was hoping. Wheels can make or break cars in my opinion

    Suprisingly easy to fit mate. remove the 2 plastic covers on the sliders which are held in by 1 x 20Torx each, then undo the 2 x 13mm nuts located underneath the front seat and they just slide out the back.

    Piss easy job.

    Yeah a very straight forward job. I have taken the seats out before when I had the water in the foot-well issue. Just need to find the time to do it really
