      Pushes the wheels out. It's mainly for looks. You can go flush with the fender for a clean look or further out for poke (combined with stretched tires).

      That's a good question! I assumed it was a Passat B6. The MK6 looks like a different layout to me.

      I took delivery of my 2012 CC Lux Limited Reflex Silver about a month ago. I often have been accused of not being satisfied with leaving well enough alone. I can always find reason for improvement in almost everything, my automobile is no different. I have found a great deal of helpful information on VWvortex and want to thank everyone for their advise and suggestions.

      In case anyone is interested, the mud flaps are GONE!

      HAD MY AUTO BODY GUY PAINT THE LICENSE PLATE BRACKET.
      I took this idea from my 2002 Passat. I really like how the license plate mount blends into the bumper. I hated the black mount that came standard on the CC and decided to have it painted Reflex Silver to match the body color. I like it much better.


      INSTALLED THE EURO SIDE MARKERS.


      DEBADGED


      SPEAKING OF DEBADGING... WHAT DO I DO WITH THOSE BADGES ANYWAY... HERE'S ONE IDEA I HAVE.
      I remember my parents 1969 Buick Electra 225 having the badge above the glove box, just like many other cars of that era. Opinions please.

      The B&B looks like it pokes out more though (in his pics)

      Had my car lowered a bit more. Still not perfect but better. Also detailed it for about three hours with meguiars products and I'm pretty pleased with the results.

      Tried to get my 2012 R-Line, tuned........nope not going to happen. Was told the 2011/2012 CC and Tiguan has a software error which will cause major problems and the only way to get it tuned is to be sent in to APR.

      Was told maybe in a month....

      Weird. Sounds like your local dealer doesn't have the tool to flash the newer ECUs. I had my '12 RLINE flashed last week in house. Took 1 1/2 hours.

      Actually this could become quite fun. Taking the old CC and finding random places to stick it on the body so you know its a vortex owner car.

      Yeah, what lugubre said. I don't know anything about a software error. They probably don't have the tool yet to plug the newer ECUs into. Must be a smaller dealer if they don't have it by now. Find another dealer or see if you can pay for the tune now while the sale is still going on and then get it reflashed later when the tool arrives. Mine only took like 30 min.

      Defi Boost Gauge installed. Not loving the pod but working on rigging the smaller cup that comes with it.

      Currently deciding to raise the coilover 2 full turns up from my current set-up.
      I really like the looks but I also lost a lot of performance. Factory set-up worked the best but man it's higher than my Eibach springs. Lol

      I installed the Golf R steering wheel today. Talk about a plug and play swap. It really comes off and goes back on easily

      I will post up a DIY tonight or tomorrow.

      No issues. The clips on the CC airbag are different than the Golf R airbag, but it was easy to figure out.

      So you had to swap out airbags?

      The airbag that fits the Golf R wheel will not fit the CC wheel and vice-versa. So, you have to get an airbag for the new steering wheel or buy a wheel that has an airbag with it. The size of the air bag is different and the clips-set-up that hold it to the wheel are different. The 2 plugs are identical though.
