Congrats on the buy. I really loved the color. Its really good than a normal white. Looks very elegant.

I would be glad if you can shed more light about the ride between AT and your uncles MT.

Find the link of Korean site where they have entensive mods. Its has the spoiler you asked for.

The Cruze is one awesome machine. I just loved the overall look and feel of the car. Kudos to GM for bringing in the Cruze and now the Beat. Just wish, they'd been a bit ahead of their time. Its only a pity that some of their dealers still belong to a pre histroic era when selling cars meant like doling out favors to people. Faced the same problem with My Aveo and the Calcutta dealer then. Things seem to be similar.

Xenon Lights
Speakers
Spoiler (like Honda accord : Any1 who know where can I find these please let me know).
Even I want to get the above things done on my car. Lemme know when you get it done, will use your source.

I had a major problem with my car within 1 month of its delivery, not sure if you faced it. If not you should immediately goto service station and get it checked.
Something has gotten lose between the gear lever and linkage wire, because of it the gears won't change. My car was stuck in parking, the lever would move freely but the car wouldn't come out of parking. Luckily my car was parked at home when this problem occurred and service station got it immediately rectified within 1 hr of raising a complaint (@ 1AM). It took them 5 mins to provide a temporary solution at my home, later on got it fixed during assurance service.

It costs 15.94 lakhs OTR in Mumbai.
Regarding your other question, it all depends on how hard you press the throttle after pressing your breaks. If you go smooth then little bit turbo lag is evident, if you press the accelerator hard its not at all noticed.

Nadim, lovely car and excellent choice, especially the AT version. You have the best of many worlds, diesel for fuel cost, superb power and an AT for convenience on congested roads.

Unfortunately, it appears from your thread thatGM didnt pay much attention to the ICE. Just a suggestion....try changing your speakers as in most cases, the OE speakers given in cars are pale in comparision to what is available aftermarket.

Good luck and enjoy the drive
