Congratulations on your Cruze motorhead.Sanddrift Grey Cruze's are pretty rare.Drive carefully for the first 1000kms,the engine will then really open up.

PS:I own a LTZ of the same color

3. Headlights & ICE have to turned off after switching off the engine??

4. No lever to release the boot ?? have to do it from the FOB.

5. Headlights arent the best. Maybe i will go for an upgrade to the flood lights. Can anyone suggest the most suitable upgrade?

6. Braking is decent to say the least. Not bad but not great either.
The headlights and ICE switch off as soon as you open the driver's door after switching off the car.

I read somewhere that the boot can be opened by pressing the unlock button on the centre console twice(not sure)

Wait for the first 1000kms,the brake feel will excellent after that.!
