      2010 VW CC Sport
      10-05-2012 06:20 PM #1
      I just sold my maxima that I modified and bought a vw cc and I would like to change the headlights. I wanted LEDs and HIDs but I'm not sure how to put them on. Anyone have an idea of what would look good? My car is silver with black tints.

      Search HIDs, there is an in-depth thread on it. It looks like a 2K job. I have my junk yard ready to call, if the get a CC with the HID housings.

      I'd tune the car, which I'm doing soon. APR, goapr.com, is having a sale.

      Slam that ish. First and foremost. Slam it. Then wheels, tune, intake.

      Without an argument please no hids in stock housings.

      I'm a girl lol and yes I was thinking I should get the projectors too, I think they would look much better than these stock lights. Do you know a ball park price range??

      I have the 20s that I took of my max, black n chrome but ima get new ones next spring for the cc and sell the ones I have now. I'm thinking mostly black with a chrome lip, complete opposite of what I have now. I have no clue what to do with my exhaust, what do you recommend?

      Like above said just a downpipe is good for power if you want a change in the sound catback. I love the way my Billy boat catback sounds not too loud but when u get one it she puts off a nice note

      As for tuning its the best bang for you buck performance mod. I highly recommend Unitronic, ive had APR before and im way happier with UNI more powerful better overall feel and just as smooth.

      Also of you plan to get tune you should upgrade your Diverter valve the best one available price vs performance is the AWE DV. Some say to use the oem rev D but its junk they leak boost due to the poor seal they make. I got the AWE Dv from "ESE Tuning"

      A complete set of projectors with all associated hardware will run for 1.5-2k, depending on where you look. You can source the parts separately on ebay but it'll still be around the 1k range.

      As for LEDs, there are a few aftermarket options. Achtuning Korea makes a good set that replaces the stock turn signals with LED DRLs and turn indicators but is pricy at about $400. There are others that can be found on ebay for less that some of us (including me) are experimenting with.

      Exhaust is more of a subjective taste thing. I haven't personally heard anything that really made me go wow yet but maybe one of them will impress you. Just do a search on youtube and you'll find videos for all the major ones.

      Sooner rather then latter, a dv can fail under stock psi depending on your driving style and that way when u have it done you're set for tuning.

      For a video do a search for a "APR stage 2 passat" (back in the dark days whem i had APR ) on youtube i did a little video for people. Sound quality isnt the best and it definitely doesnt to the catback justice but gives you an idea.

      I have a 2013 sport plus. I have a USP catless downpipe, stage 1 & 2 intake, turbo outlet pipe & Hi flo air charge pipe.

      Waiting to get the tune and throw it all on the same day.

      I need a DV also.
