    Evening all, Bought myself a low mileage 2.0 Beetle 8v last year for my daily 60+ mile commute to work. Only had 65k on the clock but hadn't been very well looked after. Terrible after market lights to start with, dirty interior and had clearly sat for a while but for £900 was worth a punt. 12...

    a few years back I replaced my struts and mounts, and I made the terrible mistake of replacing my springs, thinking that the 30 year old ones would be getting soft enough by now to be worth replacing. now I have a broken driver side spring, and Im considering replacing it with my old spring, as...

    Stock suspension systems are perfect for regular driving conditions, as they provide just enough responsiveness with comfort and softness. Yet, for spirited driving, it may be not good enough. KW coilovers is a perfect way to improve handling and lower the ride height of your VW. Coilovers are a...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mU_xON1RKuE Each project build requires you to put a lot of effort and time into it and in some cases turns into a money pit over time, because, you know, mods never come to an end, lol. If you’re looking to upgrade the suspension on your 2015-2018 VW GTI, yet...

    Hi all, Looking for advice for improving my wife's Golf. She has a 2011 1.6TDi Bluemotion. When we bought the car, it was already lowered. But it seems that rather than do a proper job, the previous owner just put lowering springs on the original shocks. It therefore is rather harsh over rough...

    1. I can't open the door, pulling the inside door handle makes the lock button lift but simultaneously pulling up the button and pulling the handle fails to release the locking mechanism. (Needless to say - the central locking has already failed to release it by this time.) 2. Has anyone taken...

    Good day gentleman; When I try to put the top down I get a message on the dash saying the trunk compartment isn't closed. I think it's because those 2 little bumper things on the back edge of the trunk with the little springs inside may be the problem. They are in very bad shape. The springs...

    I don't like the factory settings. The springs are stiff, but the shocks don't have enough damping and don't control movement well enough. I want to go aftermarket and improve stability and control, while providing a good ride. Which brand and model should I look at to achieve this? What are...

  10. CC Newbs / CC FAQs
    Hello all! Just purchased a 2014 CC 3.6L 4Motion Executive. I purchased a 5-year/100K mile warranty because of a bad experience with my previous BMW. I like this car. However, the wheel well gap is excessive. I want to lower it a bit with H & R sport springs, but I do not want to [possibly] have...

    84 w/ 1.6D - 2 door HB Last week I replaced my rear shocks//springs. The former you could manually operate them as fast as an old maid churning butter after getting screamed at by the lord//lady of the house. Springs were...ruined since my rear end was bouncy bouncy bouncy. Then I get around...

    Hopefully this isnt too dumb of a question/post. I am wondering what I need to do to avoid tire rub. I just put on a set of staggered Porsche phone dials. The rears are 15x7.5 and the front are 15x6.5. As it sits now, the front and the rear both extend out past the fender. I dont mind that...

    Although our 15 CC was to be my car the Admiral has taken over. The only question is the hard ride. It does not stop her driving MY beautiful car but can the ride be made "softer" by replacing shocks or tires or springs. Thanks Russell
