I got the spacers installed a couple weeks ago. It looks great - will take pics once the car is clean - probly by this weekend.

Thanks for asking!

Nice. If I didn't live in Virginia (bad roads and traffic) I might get coilovers, but for now theses sportlines are great. I have enough trouble worrying about body rub/damage on steep driveways and potholes and big bumps...

so i have a 13 se sport hatch and looking at spacers. i have the 17x7 stock rims with 215/50r17 with stock height. i measured it out and 25mm would be flush. so if i ran 15mm all around i would be fine without any rubbing issues correct?

That is correct, but to run 15mm up front you will either have your hubs pressed off to replace the studs or you will have to make alterations to your OEM studs and/or wheels in order to fit C30 DRM's. I would recommend 20mm instead.

what kind of alterations are we talking about? H&R spacers come with studs so i would have to get them pressed out anyways.
