I have a question about the new DCC active damping. If I changed coilover / cup-kit, the system won't work anymore, right ? It only works if you only change the Spring ? Does the 50mm drop Eibach Spring work good with the DCC ?
By the way, it's an awesome car, I really wanna get it after my Rabbit off the lease.
Thanks for your info.

Yes, the DCC system needs the DCC shocks to function. the deal is that there are electronic valves that regulate the oil inside the damper. And also there are sensors on the top of the towers that register body roll etc.
No problems with 50mm Eibach and DCC on my car

I really love my Mk6

I'm not good in english writing, but hope you understand

Because I have a friend who is driving an Audi A4, which has the "Driver Select" feature (same function as DCC). I really love the function. My friend said if you keep "Comfort" mode, the car can save you some gas too. Also, I have one more question, is it ONLY GTI has the Paddle Shifter ??

By the way, your english is better than me

I have not yet driven a Mk6 with DSG gearbox, but I think there is an option for "flappy-paddle" on the regular models too.
