      Sounds like its time for some GC side skirts to cover it up.

      installed the trigger wire and the DSG .:R Line pedals. looks sexy.

      Tomorrow I should gather up some energy for the euro cup-holder install, which is a Royal PITA.

      the pedals are easy to install.. to do all of them (including dead pedal) probably 45min if you have never done it before. All you'll need is a T20 and a flathead screw driver. there are plenty of DIY manuals arroud, but if anyone needs help, do not hesitate to ask me.

      I bought the R-dead pedal on eBay (like $35 shipped or so), and the accelerator and brake pedal from Paul@KefferVW for about $168 shipped. (I tried to buy from ECS, but even thou part is said to be in stock I waited almost two weeks, withouit notification, only to find out when calling that they did not have the part in stock, and had no ETA for it )

      I found some DIYs for other installs (GTI) but not a CC. Are they basically the same? I am installing this same thing later this week (along with the Euroswitch and trigger wire). Did the interior LEDs today and have the LEDs for the puddle lights coming this week!

      Same exact procedure

      very hard to understand why VW did not offer this car with aluminum pedals,

      I may be doing the same soon. Let me know how you like them

      I went to get my windshield tinted blue to match the rest of my tint but they ran out. I did the next best thing and got a 5% strip across the top to go with the roof to give the illusion that that roof line is lower

      Bad pic, looks better in person IMO. The rest of the glass will get tinted blue soon

      C'mon you must tuck tire with those Alphies go FKs or H&R ULs... that is unless you like nosebleeds and gap

      but seriously... with a proper stance... it will look great

      K-Sports can drop up to 4inches and have adjustable shock bodies for better adjustability and quality

      True, however any model FK will be a better value... and any H&R product will be vastly more reliable. Ask around the MKV forum about K-sports, they're pretty un-popular for a reason. (ignore mr.hayes ) Ok, they're not "bad" coils... heck, a lot of people run them in the import scene... just be careful and marine grease the hell out of them pre-winter! The collars like to bind

      The new model has fixed the issues with the 08 models which is where a lot of the MKV bitching comes from. Greasing the threads should be done an any set of coils before winter. I'm not sure how FKs that cost more and in order to get the same drop you have to remove parts and pull it out of the effective range of the shock makes them a better value? The lifetime warranty? Takes weeks to months to get responses and parts from them. H&R I have no issue with, wish they would make a CC specific setup that went below 2 inches without taking parts off the system. The ultralows are more expensive than the K-Sports and you still have to buy new strut bearings. K-Sports have camber plates in the fronts and pillowball mounts. And I def ignore Hayes, he is just obnoxious.

      Got my wheels on! Went with Hankook V12 EVO's 235/30/20 on all 4
      The V12's got amazing reviews, even when compared to tires two or three times the price.

      This is why I didn't start my own thread. The thing is a 4x4 for now. In due time it will be tucking tires

      Nice... glad to hear they fixed some of their issues! True with the grease (though I would NEVER grease up an Öhlins or Aragosta setup that would be like peeing on your grandmother's grave lol!) however, ksports are notorious for seizing up as a result of their threaded body/sleeve design... that's going to be difficult to fix, it's just more surface area to crud up. Just personal opinion, but a huge reason why I never liked their design.

      The price of FKs has risen... in the not to distant past, $620 shipped for Highs was IMHO unbeatable. I know many who have had great experiences with the lifetime warranty, and others who have had to wait a month or two. I'm just glad they offer, and support it. What other brand does that for the $$?

      I do agree with the removal of parts with FKs... in so far as we are talking about a performance/track vehicle. Our CC's (i might speak for myself here) were never intended to see hot laps on the track... which also goes on to negate Ksports pillow mounts/ camber plates/ and bearings advantages. If you're intention is for a low daily driver, FKs are hard to beat. If you want a low, more performance focused auto... i'll give you Ksports. And H&R > both any FK or Ksport, nuff said.

      You'll have to let me know how you like the new 09+ versions of the K's man... can't wait to see you ride belly down! Esp. on a set of new rollers

      I totally understand the whole non performance aspect but removing parts can make for a harsh ride even on a daily. The H&Rs I have use internal bump stops on the struts so if I were to pull locking collars I could risk hitting them which makes for some bad bumps. I have nothing against FK and If I could I would get the silverlinex for the adjustability. That's what i am really looking forward to in the k-sports. I have also found most who have coils set them up once and never adjust them again so hell even the seizing wont be an issue, Ill probably trade the care in with them on it. (when I go to pick up my A5 ) The main reason i like the pillowball though is because I had the strut bearings crap out on me once and having to take the front apart sucks. Bad set of bearings? Probably, oh well though.

      that's too funny... i'm also already fixated on the A5 for my next ride in 3 after the CC Great taste my man!

      Cruised with one today on the way home from the gym, I love that car. I test drove an S5 when they first came out just because I could and it was phenomenal I love the way that car looks. Needs a little lowness from the factory and boom, sexiest car on the road.
