          Correct, it's a RS2000 (RS1800 is MKII).
          Anyways, i hit a fairly big bump in the road today, fitted both sides and then tried to install the wheels. They didn't fit, i was sure that they would as someone at my local citroen dealership told me they fitted 17" thp wheels on a racing before.
          Now left with two options, buy new wheels or use spacers. Don't like the idea of spacers (and are illegal in belgium) and was going to get new wheels after the winter. So i'll be driving the 'small' brakes for a little while untill i order those.
          Do have a question, i need at least 10mm extra on each side. This means i need wheels with ET 15 instead of 25. But i think they wont fit the wheel arch, i mean that they will be to far out on each side? Or do they fit?

          Thanks in advance !

                Yeah pain in the arse had some old Ford wheels stuck winters on them, needed 20mm spacers, longer bolts and they had wrong head for new wheels so needed adaptors, ended up costing more than the tyres.

                  You can go up to ET 10 in the front without a problem. :cool:

                    Thanks for the info!

                    Just took it out for a test drive, ds3r front suspension and rear shocks (kept the stock shock absorbers). Car handles a lot better, stiffer and there is no more body roll (hated that so much before). Also installed a new rear engine mount and can put it in second gear again comming from thirth.
