Here's my Cruze AT modified with matte black bottom, roof, around headlights and spoiler. It has 17 inch rims and the tyre dimensions are 225/45/R17. Also changed the headlamps and taillamps. The headlamps are BMW style and tail lamps are Benz style LEDs. What do you guys think?

Sweet rims on that E60 5-er. Can we have more pics of it? In a more appropriate section, of course.

Nice! One small suggestion. For the skirts all around, try Dark Silver or Grey Silver color. Total black out gives the car odd looks from some angles (as if its a crossover).

The Cruze looks best when it is low slung. Real low slung.

Amazing tail lamps! The tail lamps to me, have always been a sore point in the Cruze's otherwise brilliant design. The E-Class like tail lamps were better than the stock, but not great. These are simply astounding!

I absolutely love those tail lamps! Have seen quite a few Cruze's in Bangalore sporting the same design.
Looks real neat!

No offence but didn't much like the head light design.
Rest of the car is a stunner!

I have to agree. The blackened bottom portion of the car is increasing the stance of the car and dilutes the lowered look of the skirts.

Please consider going in for body-colour or something lighter. No offense intended.

Hey thanks.
Will convey your comments to my friend.

He got these tails from an E Bay/FB store called unitedcustomz.in

Sorry for the poor quality of the pic, taken from my humble mobile. Anyways, will try to get a better pic next time. He changed the alloy wheels last week. BTW, no problem in revealing number plate, got permission from the owner.

Great car man! Simply stunning!

Just one question. How's the ride with those massive rims? Must be pretty rough. Because I have 45 profile tyres and the ride on city roads is just terrible.

One more thing. Did you import the body kit and other aftermarket mods? Could you please pass on the contact details of the people that are offering these?

Thanks a bunch!

Hi,

That Cruze is not my car, i found this on Steeroids.in hence uploaded here.

The kit is made by Motormind , for more details visit their website www.motormind.in

Regarding the ride quality, if you arent comfortable with 45 section profile then this will be no better.
