    Thread: Hi-Res Pics 2013 CC 20x9 with Eibach springs

    1. 06-04-2012 12:05 AM #1
      Some Hi-res pics of my 2013 CC with 20x9 235-35-20 no spacers and Eibach springs. Only wish the front had a little more of a drop but the car rides like stock with this step. I will have to get a bodyshop to repaint and fill in the holes the damn dealer made with the plate bracket
      I'll be performing an alignment in the AM now that the springs have settled.

      Just when i think the redesigned cc is a design blunder, a car like yours comes along and changes my mind. Looks really clean, I'm diggin it

      Looks great. It would look even better if you painted the whole grill body color. You could have it done while the bumper is being sprayed.

      HA HA! you know you like it!

      I had my girl follow me in my car and from a distance thru the rear view mirror you CAN'T see the bumper , just the LED's . To be honest i would rather have the headlights cause when your driving the LED's really stand out, no one is looking at the bumper when there at the other end of the stop light since there mesmerized by the lights. J/K. But it would be nice to have both, Bumper and LED'S

      Car looks great! I saw a 2013 stock ther other day and in Black it looked good. Still like the front end of the 1st gen CC's though.

      Question though. Did you go with the tires because of price, or have you bought them in the past? I just know that they're very inexpensive and I've just been running Michelin Pilot's on most of my cars. Just a fan of them. I was just curious.

      And I'm gonna be the first to say it so don't hate me But you should have saved up for coils...
      Would ya look at that..

      Looks great! Makes me wonder what my cc would look like if i opted wait and get a 2013. GaHHH stock for stock i liked the 1st gen, but now seeing more and more 2013s, im really wondering.

      I've used Kumho's and Nitto's in the past and the tire is soft and has very good grip for the HP this car makes. I consider Kumho's to be mid-grade tires. My Nissan Titan has Kumho's but there mud tires. My previous Vette had Nitto's and my current Viper has Nitto's but those are high HP cars. Also, i get tires at wholesale from my distributers so i get them cheap.

      One thing i've learning about Audi/Volkswagon is that they run borderline negative camber ( look at the readings before i dropped it below ) so tires wear out alot faster than other makes and models.

      I could of bought coilovers since (thank the lord) i'm financially fit but i was going for a smooth ride and thanks to snobrdrdan testing and comments i went with what was the best fit. This is my DD so wanted to stay close to stock.

      Exactly. Knew it would only take a few modded versions to bring many around.

      Congratulation with a very nice CC.
      In the beginning i was not sure about this facelift, but after looking on it in real life and on yours and others good pictures, i think it looks great.

      But of course i still like my own CC a lot, and not sure if i would switch it with the new CC. But i would consider it.

      Once again, Thanks everyone on the comments!

      No spacers since they are 20x (9) et40.

      Throw some spacers on the front & that should help out....give it the illusion it's lower anyways

      Because of the fender shadow and your tires stretched a little....your tire isn't filling the gap as well between the tire & the fender

      Push the wheel out a little further and it'll look better (filling that current void)

      Not to offend the slabs here but a car that looks to low looks cheap to me. I'm 35 years old so the lowrider days are over. This is my DD so i need to be able to drive it with no issues. I've gotten many compliments the way it sits by the young and old folks but with the (more low) i'm sure the older folks will think different. With the 235-35 and springs I love the way it rides plus the lower you go the more neg camber you will have there for wearing your tires alot faster. I know the dampers will wear out with the springs faster but when that happens i'll get the koni yellows.The lowest look i like on what i've seen is the cars Dino from ACH has done but not for me.

      Not true.

      I'm like 2.5"-3" lower than stock and only -0.9 camber in the front....which is less than when I was on the Eibachs (it was -1 with those)
      And then in the rear....they can dial in the camber (factory camber bolt)

      Still in spec, regardless

      And the Eibachs + stock dampers are perfect together. They won't drastically shorten the life

      I disagree. Different strokes for different folks. No sure why some people categorize a certain mod style to age. I turn 39 this year and all my cars have no wheel well gap. My CC is my daily driver, the roads around here aren't the best, I run 30 series tires, and the ride is just fine. I too get looks and compliments of all ages. Most of my car guys are close or around my age and we all run "no wheel well gap". There's no such thing as "too low" and "too old" to mod a certain way. You might as well say you're too old to drive Ferraris, Lambos and Porches and say dark tint makes your car look ghetto and cheap. I'm just say'n...

      Your ride looks nice but I agree w/kimchi29 , to pull 20s, you need no gap and less tire. But at the end of the day, it's what you like is what matters.

      100% agree I wouldn't want to pull in my office in a slammed car either. Car looks great, hence why I just ordered the exact same wheels!!!
