      Hi Guys,

      A couple of weeks ago my wife and I picked up her VW Passat CC and even it's her car, I started doing some small mods to it!

      Here is her brand new car



      Here you can see that some OEM parking assistance sensors were installed.




      An OEM Trunk Lid lip spoiler



      Custom painted the grill and "VW" badge to color match the car





      I'll keep adding some pics as soon as I receive and install some extra stuff!

      Have a good one,

      Beto

      Hi VegasCC, by now I'm not going to upgrade the exhaust... Maybe just some OEM+ tips... Thanks!

      Hi Logical, I live at Mexico and I found it directly with a Volkswagen Dealer; I have seen it as well at ECS Tuning.

      Just added some LED lights to the rear license plate! It looks pretty awesome but now I have an error light displayed on the cluster. The funny thing is that these same LED lights worked as a charm and without any error light code in my VW Jetta MKV.

      Just bought an Audi R8's coolant cap... It looks awesome but it's very tall compared to the OEM one.

      Nice, but I would've changed to the R8 oil cap BEFORE the coolant cap personally

      Hi Snobrdrdan,

      Indeed I'm planning to buy that too! I have both of these caps in my MKVI! I did have the oil cap as well but a friend of mine bought it from me (that was before my Wife even bought her car).

      How hard was it to install the sensors? Did it come with a kit? I know you would have to drill but do they give you any type of template or anything to make sure they are straight? How is the wiring?

      Hi man! Indeed I did this at a Workshop who sells this kit. The car's image it's displayed in the touchscreen OEM stereo. So I don't really know how hard it was to install.

      Did you paint the logo and grille yourself?

      Nop... Because of the chrome I prefered this to be done by an expert. I could paint it with plastidip (black) but indeed the VW Logo and grille are color matched with the car.

      Hello mate! It looks pretty awesome and there was no offense at all! Indeed your car looks pretty awesome with all the grille blacked out... but since my wires car is dark it might be to much to paint the whole grille!

      If you see the grille alive you'll see that that the paint on the grille's slats and VW Emblem are the same color of the car, even with the magic pearls proper of this color.

      Thanks for your comments!

      Yeah man! I want to buy the OEM polished exhaust tips. I recently ordered the eurocup holder since I don't like that much the cylindrical holes for the beverages.

      Indeed I believe that the best solution for a clear color car is to paint the whole grille and for a dark colored car IMO it's nice looking to keep some chrome on it. I do like murdered cars but I don't believe it would be my Wife's cup of tea! LOL
