    H&R Lowering Springs for 2017 R8 Plus Advice Please!

    I am looking at buying a used 2017 R8 Plus with about 4k miles on it. It is stock with the exception of H&R lowering springs, which it looks like lowers the car about .8 inches. I know the lowering may make the car look better, but does anyone have any experience in the change of ride, or the front tires rubbing when turning? The PPI did not show any evidence of rubbing, but some posts i have read recommend putting tire spacers on the car. If anyone has these on a 2017 or 2018 R8 plus, I would love your advice on these. Thank you!

    on my friends 17 base it was comfortable with HR springs. however, the base has magnetic shocks, and i believe the plus does not.

    The ride will be fine with the H&R lowering springs.

    We have 11mm wheel spacer in stock for Gen 2 2017 plus.

    Do you need the wheel spacers installed? The PPI did not show any evidence of the front wheels rubbing. Thank you for you help.

    Wheel spacers will make the wheel look more flush with the body panels when the car is lowered. You don't need them but more people add them for aesthetic purposes when the lower the car.
