      Oh how I love long highway trips




      Lowered the car a little more...8 threads



      My son helping us out



      Decided that I could go lower...down to 3 threads (backing up the driveway)
      Thinking about going lower, going to wait till the 19s go on and see how much room I have



      Car is at Maaco right now to get the holes on the front bumper filled and repainted ($120 )

      I'm most curious to see this!

      Actually since your son looks to be under 1, would you be so kind as to take a photo and post it of the his carseat in the back of your CC? My wife is concerned that when our child is born she won't be able to fit a carseat well in the back of her CC. And refuses to trade cars with me (can't stand the lack of turning radius in my Volvo).

      Thanks!

      Definitely. There is definitely room. You have to move the passenger seat up depending on how large the car seat is but it's not inconvenient. When I pick the car back up from the paint shop i'll post some pictures.

      Here are the car seat fitment photos for "ToySlacker"

      Also a good look at my interior LEDs and License Plate LEDs. (ADAC Sticker )





      Pictures of the fitment with the Konis and how well the filling and paint is on the front bumper (which I have to say looks great) will have to be tomorrow since it's already dark out

      Awesome, thank you! I showed my wife your photos last night, and she wasn't thrilled. But I did advise here that pretty much all Cars and SUVs will be similar, and the CC actually has a pretty big cabin area for most cars. I don't the lateral space is the issue, I think the low roofline for the rear is going to be the biggest PITA. (Man, I really sound old and lazy).

      But anyhow, I think she's just really trying to find a reason for a new car...

      Thanks again for the photos! I've been doing a lot of searching online for photos of carseats in CCs, but I could only find front facing and booster seats.

      No problem man. Yeah the only difficulty is getting the car seat in and out of the car but it's really not that bad regardless.

      Here is the finished job with the license plate holes filled and painted by Maaco. Also installed a "manual" flip up license plate holder that will tuck underneath the car.



      And here is the Koni coilovers spun down to 3 threads left

      I got them off of a member on here that was selling his CC. The ride quality is actually really close to stock surprisingly.

      http://wrdusa.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?S...Category_Code=

      This is probably the cheapest place you'll find them new though.

      They will. They're the same Konis I have. All mkV Golf/Jetta coils fit the CC.

      No problem man. I would go ahead and invest in some touch up paint if you haven't already

      Here is the link to my sale thread for them. http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...Koni-Coilovers

      They are pretty mint. Zero corrosion. The coils are stainless steel so you won;t have to worry about corrosion. Everything is in great condition. Dampening is set to a pretty close to stock feel regardless of how low you go.

      More pictures will come Friday after I take them off my car.

      Car is back to stock height now...

      Awaiting my shipment from Bag Riders to get started on bagging the car

      While I'm waiting I decided to go ahead and notch the frame, install my clear turn signals, and get my windows tinted 35% all the way around (pictures of the tint to come).

      Here are some pictures of the turn signals and the c-notch.


      My buddy's Mk6 GTI and my CC getting prepped for the notches


      Just grinding some frame down after the notch was cut out


      Before we filled the notch


      Getting the MIG welder ready


      Piece from my old down pipe welded in (before we cleaned it up)


      Ground down more. Bondo to make it look cleaner and then painted to protect from rust and corrosion.

      Love the build so far. I wish I had the know-how and tools to do suspension at will like you. I had a guy install H&R Springs on my CC and now I get a knocking sound over bumps coming from the front end.

      If you ever need it I'm sure I can help you out. 2 of my friends had the tools to do the welding, cutting, and grinding.
