Thanks for the pictures of the packaging. But does it say anywhere on the packaging that this is for the Cruze? The reason I'm asking is that in the picture on the packaging the window curtain almost covers the entire glass, but the one on your Cruze has quite a large uncovered area. I'm thinking it may be for another car?

Congratulations on the new car. It looks great in Sandrift Grey. The headlights are mind-blowing. If you took her to NH-22, on the Solan-Shimla highway, then please comment something about her handling on the curves.

Congratulations! Loved overall styling especially the front headlights and rear brake lights with a combination of Best of Audi and best of BMW!

What is the total cost of ownership for the monster now, including everything that you spent on it?
Yes indeed interiors pics are a must for this thread.
Thank you so much . The ex-showroom price was Rs1363000 + Rs40000 for insurance + Rs 40000 For registration + Rs 40000 for the tires and the alloys + almost Rs 70000 for the rest of the things including the headlights, tail lights , spoiler lip and all that. So in nutshell the ownership cost is around Rs 1550000Lakh .

All the mods that you've carried out are damn cool, expect for over done decals .

Sand drift color is my personal favorite in the cruze, and those killer lights and alloys, only enhances it further, BTW nice selection of alloys . Please do post some nice pictures, especially of the interiors.

What about the mileage that you've been getting ?

Wish you wonderful miles ahead, drive safe .

Cheers
Sameer

Thank you . Till the first 2000kms i was getting a mileage of around 16.8kmpl. Now since the run it period it over i do some high revs , so currently i am getting 14.6kmpl with A/C on all the time

The photo i have posted is of the front window and the gap is there only for the left and right front windows. Actually when you try looking out of the curtains you are not able to see properly. So those gaps are there so that you are able to see the footpath or the road properly when turning the car. The item code is mentioned on the box like for cruze it was " Item Code - WC CRU 6045 - CHEVROLET CRUZE ", you can see that it the photo. However the two back windows are almost fully covered . Here is a photo of the left rear window .

Congrats on a great buys @cruiser. Good list of mods done so far. But somehow I feel you should get rid of the excess stickers and ofcourse, the //M badge too

Congrats on your Cruze! It really looks awesome with the mods you have put on Loved the alloys. You should think about painting the brake callipers red (since you have a red circumference in your alloy). Also, stick on some Got Bhp? stickers

I suppose the first service interval is at 15k kms, right? Do post detailed report on your service experience.

Thank you . Well the the window kit required no wire cutting but the one i have got installed is only for the cruze . I installed it on a Fluidic Verna but it didn't work .

I need your suggestions guys . I wanted the roof of my car to look black , so I ordered a 3M Vinyl on ebay. This is the thing I have got 3M Gloss Black Roof Vinyl Overlay (48" Wide by 6 Feet) | eBay . Now some people say that if ever i want to remove it in future , it would spoil the paint of the car . So i am in a big confusion right now. So what should be done now ?

Congrats Cruiser.
Very good color, Good looking Alloys and the best part is new Audi like Headlights and BMW like tail lights. I just drool over it.
upcoming upgrade will hook me to your thread.
going with curtains was very sensible decision in current scenario.

Enjoy the beast, safely.

This has to be the most modified Cruze on the forum. That dark grey color looks splendid on the car and except for one or two glaring stickers it's SUPER HOT to look at.

You remind me of one Cruze owner with same color car who also did quite a few mods to his Cruze as well. I am wondering if this color is influential in these mods?

Here is the link to his report :-

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-d...or-mods-9.html (Chevy Cruze 12500kms update with minor mods)

Please keep updating the thread regularly with your experience.

Drive Safe !!!
