      2010 CC
      05-20-2011 10:10 PM #1
      They want to use my car to build the first prototype coilovers for the CC...trial and error different components, perfect the fitment, and see what combination works best for our car. I will keep this thread updated and let you guys know how it turns out.

      I am ecstatic - as many of you know, I cut my front springs (and added spacers on top of having wobble bolts) just to get my car to sit the way I want...still not even close.

      With the coilovers, I'll be able to adjust every mm to the t

      Will also post pics of whatever I can during the process..my appt is going to be scheduled for mid-June.

      Update 6/9/11:

      Appt was scheduled and I went in on Mon 6/6..(cancelled a Vegas trip for this)



      Went inside and was greeted with some cool peeps, and a showcase of some of the items they carry.





      Shortly after, the mechanic arrived and we drove to another location nearby where all the actual shop work takes place..





      The prototypes below are based on the Passat coilovers they already make - we were hoping they would bolt on and everything will be fine, which 90% of everything was ok..


      (Prototypes are black and red, final product will be black and green and a part of their Euro Street Series)

      Everything fit great, with no issues. The brackets for the brake lines lined up just fine.





      The only issue we had was with height adjustments in the rear. The lowest we could possibly go left my car sitting higher than my lowering springs. We headed back to the Megan WH and got a spring that was 20mm shorter....This helped a lot but brought my car to about the same height in the rear as my B&G S2's. Please note, you will be able to go much lower with the final revision of this set.



      I definitely was able to get my car lower in the front (YES!!!), but still mentioned that it would be nice to be able to go lower than what the coils would allow.





      In the end, the guys took down extensive notes on what exactly needs to be changed to perfect the final product. The new prototypes will be ready in a few weeks and I will be going back to what I'm hoping will be the last test fitment and finalized set for enthusiasts to be able to get their hands on.

      The ride has changed significantly. In a recent survey I participated in about the CC, one of the main concerns of me and others was the feeling of being 'disconnected' from the car while driving. This is no longer a valid concern - The 32 way adjustable shocks (set in the middle at 16 for now), pre-configured spring rates, and shorter sway bar links have left me feeling like I'm driving a BMW or much sportier car while surprisingly keeping comfort levels tolerable. The simplicity involved with changing the shock stiffness allows you to adjust in minutes. Lift the car a few inches and stick your hand behind the wheel to turn a knob for the rear, and pop the hood and turn the knobs on the top center of the shocks for the front. I am more than satisfied and would recommend these to anyone who wants to really feel more control of the car during daily driving as well as the ability to stiffen things up for the track. I'll be glad to answer any of your questions and also keep everyone posted on when these will become available. And no, I do not work for Megan, this was actually my first encounter with them personally although I have used tons of their parts in the past. They mentioned they may also start making more than just suspension parts for the CC as long as there is a demand for it out there, any input on this would be appreciated. I'm looking forward to your responses

      Home sweet home:



      Oh btw, during this process I had the most amazing PHO out in city of industry, best I've ever had. I'll get the name for you if anyone wants to try it out

      They were a smaller company who's grown bigger. Stared off with replica parts and now appear to design their own. Theywere like raceland but now they've gotten bigger. They do mainly tuner cars

      nstabl -- How have these coilovers been long term on the CC? How is the ride harshness? The website shows that you are running 7kg (391lb) fronts / 6kg (335lb) rear springs. Not sure what other springs this would compare to.

      Let me know...thanks!

      Sorry for not following up with anyone for so long, just been swamped and haven't checked the forums lately. Up til now they've been great, no issues at all (except rubbing). As of now, there are some final adjustments that have been made involving ride height and spring rate/lbs and I am expecting a call from them within the next 2 weeks to try them out. After the fitting the production order will be placed, looks like approx. 2 months but please feel free to call them directly as they know where progress is more accurately than I do.

      Ride comfort isn't bad - my friend couldn't believe how comfortable the ride is with the handling I get, how low my car sits, and how low pro my tires are. They come with shorter sway bar links as well. I would recommend these...

      So are you going for stiffer spring rates than what you have now?

      Yes I told them about the rubbing issue and they are correcting that.
