      Please post pics of your CC's with whatever setup you are running.

      Spings, Coilovers, & Bags. Stock wheels with aftermarket suspension/Aftermarket wheels with stock suspension. You get the idea...

      Have you had any issues with your bags? I'm looking into putting my CC on air and pricing but not sure if they're will be major issues long term.

      Just installed a set of VMR 708s - 19 x 8.5 ET35. Anyone running spacers with a ET35? Just looking at the car looks like there may still be a few mm left before flush. Getting ready to install springs.

      I think it's generally agreed that 19x8.5 ET35 is fairly flush in the rear, and that the front could take 5mm+ to match. Depending on your drop, camber settings, etc, too much spacer could need some fender rolling. If you are installing springs and not coilovers I think you could run a bit of front spacer and be safe.

      None whats so ever I may actually go up to a 235/35 tire next time. The ride is great on these as well, only slightly harsher than stock and a little tighter in the turns. I dont think I could be happier.

      They arent bad, they keep good traction especially when its warm. They dont make a lot of noise either which I really like.

      I have H&R Street Perf also. The installer says the rear is all the way down but I have clearance of three fingers between my tire and wheel well. Any ideas?

      If that's your car, that's NOT a 3 finger gap

      Unless you have baby hands

      Ha ha...you're right. Let's just say I can fit more fingers on the rear than the front; two easily, three fingers with a bit of "squishing".

      Measurement from center of wheel to top of wheel well is 14.25 inches on rear and 14.00 on front. So, I'd like to lower the rear by .25 inches more so it's level and so my headlights aren't aimed so low.

      When people check "wheel gap" you're supposed to hold your finger straight.
      That looks like a 1 finger gap (top of tire to edge of fender).

      In the pics, it actually looks like your front is sitting higher than the rear & the rear wheel is tucked into the fender

      If you added spacers, I'm sure you'd noticed what I'm talking about.

      Has anybody else experience this issue I am having right now with the rear suspension. I have checked and readjusted both sides and verified they are at the same number of threads on each side. However my passenger side is approx .5" lower than the drivers side. At the current moment both sides have about 3 threads left and drivers side is still 25.75 FTG and pass side is right at 25 FTG. Even with me adjusting the collars the drivers side doesn't seem to want to go down anymore than where it is right now.

      R-525 vs M15-80

      I think I'm just leaning towards the 18's because I've seen them run the Interlagos stock and it looks fine to me not lowered that way. By going 19's it might seem the need to lower more vs having 18's. I just don't know if I want to mess with my suspension this early...

      They use the same suspension parts, the CC only weights 10lbs more than a GLI. The H&R part numbers for the Street Performance kit, are one digit difference so the springs may be slightly different especially since the CC gets a bigger drop from this kit. The Struts and Shocks are exactly the same since mine said A3/MKV on them.
