Bastuck rear tips are gone, new S5 tips :)




***



Hey guys,

Just bought a CC 3.6 4-Motion off a friend and is really happy with the purchase. Car has less than 8000km on the odo and is hardly driven.
Let the mods begin :)

-R line kit
-20x9 RS4 wheels
-245/30/20 p zero gt
-H&R Coils
-Bastuck Exhaust
-K&N Panel filter

Hopefully the car should be in good shape next month and will upload the exhaust sound :beer:







Update #1 with yellow fog lights



Update #2 Some progress with parts.. H&R coils and K&N intake shipped out. Bastuck exhaust getting installed :wave:


Stock exhaust out


Bastuck in


As you could see from the photos, the bastuck is basically a catback (without central silencers + mufflers). Unfortunately, volume was way below expected so I took it back to the shop and chopped off the 2 small resonators out. I wouldn't say it's a lot louder, but at least better :p I'll post videos later on!




New tires on wheels, will be fitting the H&R coils in the next couple of days :cool:





So I got the H&R SS Coilovers fitted. Amazing coils (the ability to go very low and also the quality/comfort.. :thumbup:


Still testing out the height, dampening, etc..
Next will be R line kit and wrapping the roof!





R line kit installed but not 100% satisfied.. (fitment was just so-so) but for around $150.. oh well :facepalm:



still have the rear spoiler lip and the rear valence with aggressive diffuser look (larger dual outlet) still debating on it..


had a friend took a picture from the back.. finally found "one" more positive comment on the bastuck.. the piping's in the rear is decently aggressive :vampire:


quick photoshoot with the iphone. wrapping the roof next!





took off the oem rear valance and replaced it with a more aggressive one :)


for those who were wondering how to take off the rear valance here's the link:
http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread.php?7157361-easiest-way-to-take-out-rear-valance

finalized the adjustment for the ride height and alignment done



next i'll have the scirroco R mirror caps and R line door sills installed :)
more parts came in!


trunk mats for protection :cool:


r-line door sills installed :)


and finally the scirocco R caps :beer:






think wrapping the roof will be pretty much the final cosmetic thing i'll do.. at least for now :)
randomly bought a full set of new rotors and pads... hopefully it'll look good with the big calipers :)


installed the rotors, still need to paint the calipers volkswagen racing blue :beer:



and a bit of online shopping



just a quick mod to protect the R line lip :cool:



so finally... i have the roof wrapped in gloss black to match the half-sunroof.





Yep.. the mods never end, painted the calipers blue




I keep on saying the project is done.. but again I found out that the DRL LEDs would 'complete' that OEM+ look so I decided to buy them:p




along with the R line badge :thumbup:


Full LED conversion for all the rear bulbs

It's been a while since I've updated the thread. Added chassis bar and 're-organized' the exhaust set up




As I've always wanted the back end to look OEM+, the Bastuck muffler/tip was too aggressive. Found the S5 tips to be a perfect match and deleted the rear muffler (straight pipe except with the Bastuck mid-muffler still on)

Thanks! How does this tune feel? Don't most of the people say that N/A gains from a chip isn't massive?

It's not massive, but it is quite noticeable. The car feels so much lighter and the throttle response is amazing, I'd buy it again.

He's mistaken, there isn't a stage 2. Uni offers a 1+ for a 93 tune.

Looks brilliant, wish I had the lighting kit! I have an HID conversion that does a fair job. In for post R-line results. Did you get gold coast kit or real R-line parts?
Cheers.

Actually, I have had a couple of guys asking me the same question about the R line kit.
The kit is actually from SH VW (From the China market). Great thing is, since China has their own CC (and also has a R line for it) we could basically just order the OEM kit from China for almost like 1/5 of the price..
It's weird, because all the cars we get in HK is Euro-spec but we get to enjoy the cheap benefits from ordering OEM chinese market VW parts for much less.

When you start doing the exhaust videos, please post copious amounts of them. The few I've seen online are mixed - one is from a parking garage, and one is from outdoors w/ wind noise.

I'd personally love to see the 3.6 with Interior driving city/highway, Exterior drive-by, Start/Idle.

Even though you further modded the Bastuck, I'm extremely interested to hear what your installation sounds like.

Have you seen any of these vids?
