- Have you had any issues at all?
- Have you re-checked the torque settings of the bolts to see if they have remained as first installed?
- Hows your review of them overall?
- Also, a front-on picture would be good to see, as the rear looks awesome. Cheers!

Hi There,

everything running fine. Bought the car with 33000km, now at almost 90000. So almost 60000km with the spacers. No issues whatsoever. When I changed my brakepads I checked the torque settings on the spacer bolts. Everything still the same and ok. I think these are great spacers, nicely manufactured, hub centric etc. They come with a TUV certificate. Even my main JLR dealer thinks they are great and won't be of any concern.
I could send you a frontal picture, but I only have fitted the spacers at the back. Have to order another set for the front.
Concluding: I would recommend them

Thanks Rein, thats good to hear.

No need for the frontal pic, as i thought you had them. Seems H & R or Eibach are the two very best quality hub-centric spacers on the market.

RE: 20mm spacers fitted

I've just listed my 25mm h&r spacers in the for sale section as bought aftermarket wheels. 2 sets so all 4 wheels spacers. Will try to post some before and after front pics.

Before, somewhat lost,

RE: 20mm spacers fitted

Nickj, the spacers really hit the sweet spot with the Evoques design.

Did you notice any incremental difference in steering and ride feel when the spacers were originally fitted?

RE: 20mm spacers fitted

I'm going to put 20mm spacers on my dynamic and then, to cope with extra width - going to fit Rally Armor mud flaps. I live in the country and the evqoue is always covered with mud up the sides.

RE: 20mm spacers fitted

It's a Land Rover, it needs mud all over it!

Now driving a 2018MY Mini Countryman Cooper S E All4 PHEV, alongside my 1996 Defender
TDi300. I hope to be back in a new Land Rover in late 2019 or early 2020 but am having a short break

RE: 20mm spacers fitted

@Rein, just wondering if you still have the car and what is the result so far?

By the way, did you also lowered the car with H&R springs?

I don't have the car anymore unfortunately, still miss it from time to time, but the spacers functioned and looked great. No lowering springs were used.

RE: 20mm spacers fitted

Proudly still got my Evoque, and the 20mm spacers have been on for a couple of years without any issue. The car doesn't need lowering IMO.
