      Modded Black Cruze RS !!

      Hi everyone!! This is my first post here. I have been reading through the threads regarding Cruze and have got lots of info while modding my car.

      I had a Skoda Laura L&K earlier and once I sold the car, I was in a dilemma as to which car to buy. I had made up my mind to buy an automatic car as most of the driving was in the city and also a pre-loved car as otherwise depreciation is very high. Most of the cars I considered seemed like a downgrade from Laura. I used to visit many forums and finally zeroed in on Cruze. I did a fair bit of research regarding any issues with the car and in the process found out that there are many accessories/mods for cruze.

      Even before I purchased the car I had a long list of accessories that I intended to buy once I get the car. Most of the mods were cosmetic and ICE upgrade. Finally I found a good car but it was manual. I couldn’t wait any longer and decided to buy it. To all the Gearheads here is a teaser picture.. more details and pics coming soon..

      sumanth.7hv How does night visibility compare to stock headlights? Are you running HIDs?

      Well, got HID's only in low beam which has projectors.. high beam is halogen bulb. Also got HID's in the fog lights.. Being an after market headlight, the light output is not so great.. Its quite visible in city driving and a bit inadequate on dark stretches, need to switch to high beam sometimes.. Light spread is good but i guess the leveling is a bit low..

      Have also got few stickers for B & C pillars and one for the hood.. will put up pics once they are fixed.

      Well to upgrade/change the ICE I did go through lot of forums but could not get a clear idea. Finally went with Pioneer 8490bt double din unit along with connect 2 kit, 4 Focal component speakers, hertz 5 ch amp and a 10 inch sub,

      Im quite happy with the setup but feel it’s a bit low on bass.

      Now Im planning to get dieseltronic dual channel box for the cruze. I would request members who have used it to please guide me. Im sure it would be great and reduce the turgo lag but afraid the FE might have a drastic drop.. Currently im getting about 10kmpl and need to get it checked as its emitting black smoke when revved beyond 2k rpm.

      Most of us have moved on to remaps, and if cost is not a major concern for you, I suggest you get a good remap.

      Also, suggest you get a feel of the mods by turning up for a meet.

      Love what you did to the front grille... Chrome? Or something else?

      The alloys also look very nice though personally am not a fan of multi spoke alloys

      But overall the black Cruze is looking one hot babe!

      Edit: you bought a pre-owned car?

      I would like to see the throw, the headlight setup looking tempting and also love the Fog light setup with Drl’s and turn signals.

      And as tadukuttan mentioned, please do meet us for drive meets, it will be our pleasure.
