That looks real good....sweet pics....how much did the springs totally drop you after they settled?
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.
Rims from here.
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
Idc what anyone says, that is a beautiful car! Sweet setup.

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...
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.
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.
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)

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

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.
