      that looks like serious business with the sparks flying!

      What is in the fender that needs the mechanical persuasion? Can't wait to see this thing on the ground

      Well there are the normal stuff , fender tab at 1 O clock, must remove to roll fenders without cracking them .
      If you feel your stock front fender there is 1\2 inch lip there . Just not on mine any more

      Then to make the big wheels fit the rear fender support needs to be trimmed 1inch and the seam neeeds to be bent over and tack welded.

      hear I beat them over ,this will all be fender painted to protect it. This is under the fender liner of course.

      then we flaired the fenders 1-5mm (flat 1inch tall portion of your fender)

      The rear , you'll have to see in the light but there is huge differnace.

      Sorry the car is so dirty , damm seattle rain.

      Well the project continues now that I'm back from my trip. The AWESOME folks over at Achtuning did a SUPERB job on the ride yesterday installing some coilovers and some new rubber on the wheels. I also installed some LED license plate lights last night and the Stage 2 section of the APR cold air intake. For some preliminary pics see here:

      http://achtuning.com/new-produ...-2060

      Dion and the gang at Achtuning have just been awesome throughout this little project. The Gold Coast kit should be here in about a week (thanks Bud!!) so I'm hoping to get some really good pics once all is done. So far:

      APR ECU Stage 1
      APR Stage 2 Cold Air Intake
      RNS-510 retrofit
      Smoked Rear Lights
      Clear Bra
      Tint (35%)
      Hartmann HTTRS 19*8.5 et 38 Wheels
      Koni SS Coils
      Clear Turns
      Video in Motion
      LED License Plate Lights
      Lots of VAG tweaks

      Still to come:
      Gold Coast Kit
      HID Lighting (headlights, fogs)
      E-Codes with no amber

      Euroswitch
      HID lights

      As far as I know, they can go down a bit more. Don't know how much more though. I didn't want to slam it all the way down.

      Did you smoke the lights yourself? They look great.

      I'm not that talented. I had the folks at Precision Tinting do it in Silverdale WA. One of the top rated tinters in the US!

      Nice...I like the drop but I like it to be a little bit lower in the front due to the fender making the car look lower in the back when its not...just my .02 and preference but to each its own

      Anyways i love the tails man!

      I agree and I just saw the specs on those, you can do 2.4in lower int he front I would def try to make the wheel gap look even which is at about 2.2inches in the front.

      They did a great job and so did you in picking them! I really like those wheels... very similar to the factory Daytonas I had on my CC, just in the proper size (19"). They're probably my favorite wheels. Ever.

      Are you going OEM bi-xenon? Or just e-code halogen housings?

      e-code halogen. Those are expensive enough and the OEM bi-xenon are just way to much for an upgrade, especially with all the other money I've spent on the mods.

      It has been my intent to match up the gaps, I am letting the suspension settle right now and will have it tweaked when I head back over to Achtuning. Plan is to adjust the dampening (way to hard a ride right now) and even out the gaps. My GC body kit is due to arrive TODAY!! so the plan is to have that installed tomorrow (hopefully) and make a trip out to Dion and the gang early next week (or maybe Friday if I can sneak it in).

      Thanks for the compliments guys, I let the tinter know about the comments. I am also having him tint the reflectors under the tails as we speak to even it out!

      Thanks!! The body kit goes on today and then its back to Achtuning tomorrow for the suspension tweaking, so I imagine there will be some updated pics soon! I also smoked the lower reflectors beneath the taillights yesteraday. The car is looking great, really happy with the results so far!

      I freed up $575 to put back into the CC this afternoon....

      not the way I'd like to have had that happen.. at all. Why can't people just be accountable for themselves?

      Sucks dude, I know it almost double what you were going to pay but why not pick up a new set from BSH? Thats my plan.

      That was what I was going to do, but then I saw practically new ones for 2/3 the price, thought it would be a great deal.

      if it looks too good to be true... it is.

      Best part? The pictures of the stuff he posted were "after he took it off" but were taken on march 28th, 2009.

      Decided to look into that one after 5 days of not hearing from the punk.

      Which springs? OE, Sport, Super Sport, Race? Pics? Ride?

      I want to do springs, 1-2 inch is enough for me.

      In most cases anything over 1-1.5in will degrade the life of the shocks unless you plan on upgrading those as well. I am working with a company on a group buy for coils, if you are interested let me know.
