Hello new CC owner

Post by abarth_1200 » Tue Aug 04, 2020 12:24 pm

Hi everyone, may have noticed some spamming of questions while I was searching for my new car sorry and thank you the replies.


Only had to travel 4 hours to pick up my new car, 2014 CC R line 177bhp black. 33K miles, 1 owner, nice clean car I think I’ll keep it for a long time!

Plans for making it my own,

Lower it on springs, h&r or eibach I don’t have a preference I’ll wait for opinions. The only thing I’m not sure about is adding the extra stress to the existing shocks which with it having DCC I dont really want to change to another shock, or have to replace them prematurely. So opinions most welcome.

Matt chrome mirror replacement caps ordered as I feel it’ll help even out the front grill chrome to the side. I actually want to wrap the chrome bump strip in gloss black or matt chrome to match as it’s a bit dated with the chrome circling the whole car.

Possibly remap, but worried about clutch and dmf longevity, and for now it’s plenty quick.

4 wheels laser alignment as the steering is off centre when driving straight ahead, also have a fair bit of road noise coming from all 4 corners, good tyres all round so I suspect alignment needs sorted, probably never been considered on a 33k mile car before.

Claybar, Hand polish, seal and wax plus the wheels and it’ll be good for the summer.

Thanks everyone for stopping to read
