Upgrade your tires to get better grip as well as handling. Steering will surely feel better on performance tires.
Thanks, Ashish. Tyre upgrade is definitely something on my priority list.

Thanks Buddy. These half tint glasses just works perfect both in day (by protecting one from harsh UV-ways) and night (by giving a clear view of the road ahead and in the sides). It may look a bit odd but works very well. I've lived with these half-tint glasses for almost 5 years now.

Hope u have a great time with the car.
Thanks, Himavanth. I took to the car to a dead-end on the Nice Road near clover leaf to take the exterior pics. The road runs only in one direction. I'm glad you brought this up ... not many people in this country treat roads as shared service.

Just wow. I love the light blue shade - suits great on large sedans, and on top of that, the Cruze is a looker!

Congratulations. I feel like entering those pics and flooring her :-D

Wow, lovely color & surely a head turner. I had test driven LTZ MT and agree with you completely on the power/torque. One needs to drive to believe the kind of acceleration it gives. None of the cars in this segment can beat Cruze for its power. Enjoy the drive.

Yes Sachin, the alloys are factory fitted.

Wonderful Friend.I'll be following you sooner.
Enjoy and Drive Safe
Thanks, Karthik. Can't agree more...the side profile is simply superb. However, the coupe-like roof line limits the rear headroom to an extent. Fortunately no one in my family or close friends circle are over 6 feet.

Congratulations, exactly the combo for me too - one of the two blue colours (this or the Atlantic Blue - Misty Lake just edges past and likely to be my first choice also) and an A/T definitely. If only, they'd give A/C vents at the rear as well.

The Cruze does come in a golden shade, and it seems to be quite popular too. The wheel arches look even larger in the colour, in my opinion, but in a nice way.

Congrats on the cruze.

I agress ABS is there in cruze but dont think it comes with EBD or it does?
Even websites mention only ABS.

Upgrade your car with better tyres, petes n green cotton filter and enjoy the drive.

Yeah, even I noticed that EBD isn't mentioned on the website though the feature is present in the car.

I'll certainly do all the upgrades that you've mentioned. Two other things that are on my mind are Projector Lamps and an In car Entertainment with inbuilt GPS.

Thanks for correcting me, Cruze does come in Gold shade. But the shade is a bit too dark for my liking.
