Re: Eibach lowering spings

+ 1 they're the ones I fitted although didn't have an issue with rubbing at all. At the same time as swapping the springs out I also replaced the shocks with the standard Sachs ones - ran 235s and 255s without a single issue.

Re: spare wheel

It's underneath the boot floor, opposite side to your exhaust. Assume it's accessible from underneath.

Depending on age, it's probably wise to check that the spare is still in good condition as they can corrode under there ;)

What I would do is use Autoglym tar remover to get rid of the old stuff and then put new 3M double side on, it'll be the same (or similar) stuff they use from the factory.
