      DCC = shocks
      In Germany DCC is the standard suspension for all CC with more than 170 hp. DCC means Dynamic Chassis Control. It adjusts the shocks according to driver inputs and road conditions. There three settings you can select via switch (Comfort, Normal, Sport).

      I take my statement back. 5 stars look good on EVERY CC. That is one fine vehicle you have there sir. Judging by the surroundings, are you in Queens?

      Although i'll get attacked and killed by all the mod heads here but I love the look of a stock clean CC. It also looks very attractive lowered but when I think of all the noise and headaches which follow a lowered car, I go back to drooling over a stock height LOL. In the past, all of my vehicles were dropped on Eibach and they all made creaking noise and had axle issues.

      I’m in Westchester but the picture was taken in Astoria. Yeah it’s hard to drive in NY with a lowered car. As much that I would like to lower it I just can’t. But I’m treading her in soon for a Touareg.

      Do you have an "Comfort/Sport" switch on the right side of your shifter? If yes then you have DCC. Otherwise there is only a standard sport suspension installed and not the electronic one.

      Yeah I figured the pic was taken some where in Queens, . Oh you're switching over to the Treg side, go for it. TDI i'm guessing? New Tregs look very attractive.

      The CC has got a big body, my stock 18s look so tiny on my car. 19s look like the size the car should have come with stock and 20s (with the right drop) looks money.

      Yes, they have a thin/low profile (235/30-20) but will not explode I'm running these wheels 3 years now (first on my MKV and now on the CC) and hit 2-3 potholes but as you can see, they are still alive Hankook recommended me a tire pressure of 45psi (3,1bar) in the front and 42psi (2,9bar) in the back.

      Nice car and nice rims however really weird color choice for the rims. The thing with CC is that due to the size and style of the car when lowered its given a VIP look. Those lime green and orange colors belong on a tuner car (i.e. 240, sti, civics, etc). If those rims were gold i'd say . I think that particular rim color throws off the car. That's just my opinion.

      These would look great on any CC given that you lower the car. What size are these?

      If that's the case, sign me up. I've always drooled over those Q7 rims but was skeptical about the thin low pros. I've promised myself no rims or suspension work ever since i've leased mine but you guys are making me re-think my decision. God damn you.

      I can see what you mean and I understand why you would say that by looking at the picture... but this paint job is much more unique than anything else you'll probably ever see. and its not a cheap spray paint job. This is the same paint code they use for the Lamborghini Gallardo Green

      I agree, I can also see where trying to be different is going out of the "norm". But yeah, gold, black, or silver w/those polished lips would look money IMO.
