First time ever posting on here, but I've followed for years and finally wanted to share a bit of my current build. None of this stuff would have even been possible without what everyone's done on this site. There's lots of other things that have been done, but the stuff below has pictures.
I've had my CC for a little over a year now - it was the replacement to an '07 Jetta I thought I'd never get rid of.
Immediately started doing at least little things. Swapped out the stock lux 17s for 18" Detroits (some like this, some don't - I at least like them better)
Changed the stock head unit to an Eonon Android deal I'd pulled from the Jetta. This would change again soon.
Changed the interior lights to white LED bulbs (thanks DeAutoLED)
Tinted the turn signal housings.
Played around with white dip to see if I could get closer to an S4 fog cover. I couldn't.
Swapped over to black housing LED-DRL headlights (this was all thanks to the huge thread in this forum)
Added a backup camera (and a BFI shift knob)
Added post-facelift vents (and aluminum pedals at some point in time)
Played around with the idea of using EL wire as ambient lighting, then didn't.
Euro cup holder installed!
Played around with the same idea, but this time in white. Still didn't do it.
Went to the canyons.
Blacked out the rear emblem with a white inside. This isn't the best picture.
Wrapped the center console and installed a much newer and bigger head unit.
Ran the wires for the LED vents.
Fabricated a wood floor for the trunk. Still need to do the edges.
Finally, put in a mk7 Golf R steering wheel, which brings us to now. It's great, but the controls don't really work. They light up, I have no faults, but they don't do anything to either the stereo or the cluster screen. Any thoughts here? I worry that the control module is too old for this wheel in this car, which would suck.
That's up to now, and hopefully there's some good stuff in the future. Any insight on that steering wheel issue would be great - I'd love to have it fully featured in the car. I may make another thread with that specific issue for visibility.
