So Long GTI

Well guys and gals, unfortunately it comes time in every leased GTI's life for greener pastures...you will be missed!

That being said.....Say hello to my new CC Sport! And yes I will absolutely be modding

Nice car and best of luck!

My cousin has a 12 cc sport, With just an apr intake it slightly takes our buddy's FSI 2-door mk5 GTI dsg(apr intake). Just to give you an idea..

Thanks guys....Im gonna look into smoked side markers...not sure if they make them for the CC...thats to start....I think im gonna stick with REVO....that chip was amazing.

The exhaust tips are bolt on which means they will be removed and powder coated black chrome : )

I'm AMAZED as how well the Bluetooth works on the CC compared to my GTI....and now your entire phones address book can be viewed on both your Radio Screen AND your MFI.

And there ride is about as smooth as you can get before computers start getting involved...there is a slight bit of body roll in tight turns because they didnt put the XDS on it...but the ride compensates for it. Its comfortable and you can still feel the car when you get on it. The 5 series BMW I test drove had a ride like peanut butter. Too soft and mushy

XDS doesn't eliminate body roll, roll bars do. That, and a stiffer suspension. I'm pretty sure the CC has a softer suspension than a GTI, so that might be something worth "fixing" :P

Congradulations ! My wife has 2012 Deep Black. She gets compliments on it all the time. I will admit I love having the best of both worlds, but I enjoy driving my GTI more.

OP what's it like going from a small gti to a larger cc? I'm curious your take. Not sure I'd like driving a big car.

Does it different going through parking lots due to larger size? Also less nimble driving characteristics.

The interiors are about the same size. Actually the GTI seats 5. The CC seats 4.
