Well excuse my asking but the two pictures really don't show that big a difference. Are the spacers really worth it? Or am I missing something? No difference in performance, I gather. It's just the look you are after by making the wheels protrude outward 10-15 mm, which is a pretty small distance. For as much mention as these are given by the McLarenLife community I don't see what the big deal is. Seems like of all the aftermarket modifications one can make I would rather spend dollars on other, more impressive and noticeable things.

I think the number of people on here posting how much better they like the look of their cars with the spacers says a lot. For me personally I think it makes a subtle difference that is worth the small $400 investment. Maybe I am OCD but having the wheels flush with the fenders is nice, its not a mod you do and expect anyone else to notice. The car is already impressive, not a car I think needs any loud or large "cosmetic" mods.

We all go through a thing where we just want to do something to our cars. Make them a little more personal, ours. Or a lot more. I remember getting a fake leather steering wheel cover for my first car, a 1965 Plymouth Satellite. Age 16. My first mod.

Much later on I wound up modding a Lotus Elise all the way to track only. Roll cage, fire suppression. Trailer and tow vehicle. Was great fun, especially as eventually all mods were for safety and performance.

I don’t get why people do lots of things to their vehicles. Take a great driving truck and jack it up ‘till it’s only suitable as a “Mall crawler”. Get a superb sports car and start correcting the suspension, stuff the engineers failed to notice. Run the tires out past the fenders and find out why we have fenders.

Nowadays I get a new car set up nicely and add floor mats, license plate frame, and radar detector mount. Perfection!

But if it floats someone’s boat to have an appearance change that I would not notice ever then go for it.

Hi Guys, New here - Just purchased a 2018 570S Spyder - Based in the UK - Does anyone know where to buy the spacers (either based here or with international shipping) is 15mm front and back suitable?

Thanks!

I think it's our age.

Back in the day I did all sorts of mods... now its a V1 and some PPF and I'm good to go! Macas are so good out of the box, I just don't see a reason, but to each his own.

All the mod work happens on my wife’s rubicon. My F350 (lift, wheels, tires, bumper, winch, lights) is done. Nowadays, I just want to go drive.
