Hey Guys....
Got the delivery today. I just cant stop thinking about the car. I am at my workdesk, and uploading pictures!! The car is amazing. The pickup is amazing. The cockpit feels good. The car feels good. I hope GM does something about the turbo lag. I did not find a problem with the leg space. Chevy customer care/sales pitch and the entire experience was really good. I took the loan from IDBI bank. I was so surprised by their customer care/customer service- excellent- top class. Please find the pics. Please feel free to ask me all your questions. And if you want any pictures. I am not a tech geek, but since I have the car I shall do my best to give you all the info you need.
I ll get the service manual in the evening.
Regards,
Varun Jain

One more thing I forgot to add... The car was driven by more than 5 friends, acquaintances. And each one came out with a "WOW" feeling. These are the people who own cars like- civic, laura, pajero, etc.

Let me be the first to congratulate you on your ICBM! White looks stunning!

I almost bought this car (LTZ trim), but bowed out at the end to Civic.

Congratulations on your Cruze! I think this is the first Cruze on Team-BHP. Do post your initial ownership review and keep us updated. Did you (need to) get any accessories? You are going to be very popular here, my friend!

Congratulations on your new Cruze Varun. The car looks fantastic in that white shade. What was the final price you nicked her for? Looking forward to your initial ownership report.

Drive safe.

Congratulations dude. Looks neat and sweet in WHITE.

For turbo lag, can Pete help if not GM ?

Congrats Varun.

I think its one of the best car released since some time in the sub 20 lac category. Apart from the tall gearing and turbolag , I see no shortcomings. Great buy and am looking forward towards a detailed review and please do a detailed photoshoot.

All the best for the journey together .

Congrats Varun
When i went for TD this sunday i didn't saw the white and told my cousin white will look awesome and voila awesome it is looking indeed!!

The initial turbo lag is annoying a bit.
The one for td and in showroom had JK tyres, did you got the same? Personally i feel tyres need upgradation.

Wow is indeed the sentiment once its above 2k rpm!
