Looks good. Though you would probably need to go for an HID kit or something to get a good overall balance.

EDIT: Subu where do you stay in chennai? I might be meeting up with fellow bhpian DWind tomorrow morning opposite tidel park. Would love to see your car in flesh.

No voting, seeing a picture mate. What appears here as not so good, may actually be fantastic in real. I say if your wife likes it, just go and get it done.

Thats one happy family i say

The red lining in the tyre actually looks good...Now with your permission, your car has been completely blacked out . Forgive me if i over did it.

Pras - I do stay in Adyar - very close to tidel but I am getting the car for the extra coloring tomorrow :( What time did you plan for? I have to be at the shop by 9 (It is car nation, sidco industrial area).

@VW: Thanks for the effort mate - I didn't look for complete head light coloring - more like an angel eyes look. The + is spot on - and the wheels can't be changed now

I did a bunch of mspaint stuff - the one I really wanted to go for is this below. Am trying to see how close I can get to it.

Btw, I don't have the image with a black roof + tinted headlights:(

The car looks swell as it is. Do not change the alloys, it accentuates the look. What you can do is, paint the Bonnet and boot lid black

Dude....that means he should have got a black car with very little white paint probably on the doors

The car looks sick in post 51. Go for that looks. Smoked front lights and painted brakes......Looks great!!!!

I laughed and laughed when I read this.

But frankly kudos to your enthusiasm and guts @SubuS, literally repainting a brand new car. How do find the ride?

Thanks a ton folks.

@Post51: Exactly what I have in mind - with my painted calipers / tinted head lights / blackened + - this is how it should look. (I am not gonna tint the entire light though - worried about the visibility at night). Thanks a ton for putting this on paper richie!

@anb: That cruze lacks a bit of touches on other places - so the logo stands out. Hopefully with headlight tinting, it should look like post 51.

@drchernish: That is indeed an awesome cruze, but with that much paint change, in India you could get into trouble with RTO :( The interiors look dirt prone too.

@dot: I am just getting used to nudging a sedan around the city - what with crazy traffic and my <100kmph rule. I will write up about the ride quality after some time.

None of the models come with ORVM indicator as part of factory option. I Paid 2800 to get it installed on my car prior to taking delivery.
