      Well here it goes,

      This is going to take awhile for budget purposes obviously.
      Where do I begin...

      I just bought my 2010 VW CC Sport (2.0T) on October 17th with 12,711 miles on her.



      Before I even brought her home I went ahead and Debadged the rear.





      More pictures before any mods are done. Taken with a weak sony camera. Waiting to take pictures with a better camera when she's LOWWWWW.









      If you're into dub step, you may like this Europlate





      Now onto the list:


      List of what has already been bought/done (some stuff is just waiting to be shipped):

      -PIAA H7 Xtreme White Plus Headlight bulbs
      -PIAA H11 Plasma Yellow Fog light bulbs
      -APR Carbonio Stage I and II CAI
      -Passat Monster Mats
      -Billy Boat 3” Down-pipe
      -Borla Cat-back exhaust
      -APR Stage II+ ECU Upgrade
      -Euro switch
      -Euro cup holder
      -LED Interior lights from superbrightleds.com
      -LED license plate lights from Racing Dash
      -Front License Plate Removal
      -Hidden Manually-Operated License Plate frame
      -Air Bag Stickers Removed
      -Clear Turn Signals
      -35% Tint all around
      -VAG-COM goods
      -Rear Fogs enabled
      -Auto Pilot V2 Management System with Airlift XL front bags, BagYard Classics rear bags, and Koni rear shocks (all courtesy of Bag Riders)
      -C-Notch
      -Rolled Fenders and Trimmed Fender Liners
      -Dynamat layered trunk
      -2nd Grocery Hook
      -OEM Aluminum Pedal caps w/ Dead Pedal
      -Clear Plastic Trunk edge protector
      -Heavy Duty Trunk Liner with Cargo Blocks
      -P3 Vent Gauge with Analog Boost Sensor
      -APR Modular Boost Tap
      -Recaro car seat for my son

      Any other suggestions for mods are highly welcomed.

      I'll take any criticism and advice as well.

      Like I said before, this will be a slow process ....stay tuned.

      Like all your mods, but are those mats safe? Looks like they will cause you go have driving issues....

      FUTURE MODS: Rear Fog | Lots of Vag-Com Work (DRL, FOB Windows, Auto Rain Up) | Forge Short Shift Kit | Coil Overs | Stage III or K04

      The monster mats are well worth the price and cause no safety issues. They fit like a glove and pay dividends in return.

      Installed the APR Intake, went to start the car...

      It started for about 2 seconds and then stalled. :bang head:


      Guess I won't be going to get my tune tomorrow since it's stuck at the dealership till they can find out what happened and fix it.

      (I also put the stock intake back on and tried but still got the same results)

      I got NUEs. I was going for a clean look instead of stretch...probably going to change it up next year though.

      Just got my APR Stage II flash at Euro Pros in Yorktown, VA.

      $599 for 4 programs thanks to the deal that APR is running.

      Big shoutout to David up there for helping me out.

      He's going to be installing my Koni coil overs tomorrow

      couldn't think of anywhere else to put it...

      I was going to put it on the back of the rearview mirror but didn't realize that the back is black.

      Figured it looked best on the trim
