We are extremely excited to bring you this Car Feature, all the way from Tampa Florida. Here we have Chad M. 2013 Volkswagen Passat B7 equipped with Airride suspension. We would like to first Thank Chad for allowing us to do a feature of his car on our site, and also giving us the opportunity to show case his ride to the world.
Chad purchased his car December 2012 from Brandon Volkswagen and the first thing he did was get rid of the stock wheels. After months of trying to figure out the best wheel for his car, he decided to go with Vossen wheels. Chad was let down two times before finding the first set of wheels for his car. The first wheel Chad decided to go with was the Cv5's, but sadly they were not available for his car and they were not going to be available anytime soon. After that disappointment, the next wheel on the list was the Vossen Cv3's, which ended up being on back ordered and was going to be available for another three months. With little wheel options left, Chad decided to go with the Vossen CV1’s 19x8.5 in the front, and 19x10 in the rear. Once the wheels were installed, he knew he had to lower the car to get rid of some of the wheels gap, so he went ahead and purchased a set of H&R sport spring to give the car a nice drop.
After having the H&R drops springs for quite a while, Chad was not totally happy with the drop of his car. Seeing many pictures online of his car, and many other cars slammed, he quickly changed his view about his suspension set up. He started looking around at different coil-overs system and air-ride suspension. Since the car was a newer model, there were not a lot of coil-overs to choose from. He decided to go with air bags instead. Even though they were a little more money, they would give him the option of raising up and not having to worry about speed bumps, dips, and other road hazards to a slammed car.
With everything planned out and in order, Chad contacted his boy Justin over at Urotuning and he was able to hook him up with a Air Lift Setup. Air Lift Performance struts for the front, double bellow air kit for the rear, Air Lift shocks for the rear, with an AccuAir Speed Switch, VU4 manifold, dual 444cc Viair compressors, and 5 gallon AccuAir tank. The install took about four hours of his and his brother's time but it was well worth it, the car came out amazing.
After taking the bagged Passat to a couple of car shows, Chad ran into a wheel company called Lenso Wheels and was introduced to a sponsorship. Shortly after the sponsorship he ordered his next set of wheels 19x9.5 all the way around of AXE Design.
This car is hands down one of my favorite builds, not because it's bagged but because Chad took his time and did everything right the first time. It's hard to get recognition nowadays if you're not on big name brand wheels or even if your suspension isn't top of the line. We brought you guys this feature to show everyone that it doesn't matter what you have, A CLEAN CAR IS A CLEAN CAR! I'm sure Chad will eventually add more to his car in the future but this is definitely a neck breaker. Cant wait to see what else is in store for his build. I'm happy that we are the first to bring you guys this build all the way from Tampa, Florida.
