I will try to find their visiting card.

IMO it would just look odd on your Civic since Chevy actually is related to the transformers. But Honda??

Firstly, congratulations on a brilliant buy!

The front end view looks killer! especially the blackened side mirrors. Must say it was worth the risk!

I am attaching here two pictures with areas outlined in red which I believe if were black, would just improve upon your theme!

Hey SubuS,

your Cruze looks cool. I must say the exterior modifications gel well with white color. Let's see what do we have common in our cars?

Smoked tail lamps - Check
Smoked head lamps - Check
Rear spoiler - Check

As many have suggested already, you can go for HID and projector lights. Now, channel some cash on to ICE and engine mods as well.

I will be posting a review. Infact, ownership thread is in the offing for not only the Cruze but also the Safari.

All Autobots are American, agreed. However Decepticons have non-american models!

U can order online from Utsav.co.in. He is very prompt and it comes neatly packed.

BTW, great mods man! Looks sinister. The spoiler, I feel would trouble you in the long run. And I would have liked carbon fibre (stickers atleast) instead of the gloss black on the ORVMs.

@Sumit: But you got the AT - at least city driving will be a blast
@thedreamcatcher: The HID's mess with the warranty- hence waiting for now. Also the service engineer said once you mess with the current setup, there are troubles.

FWIW, I am just back from about a 300km ride - the stock lights + fog does a great job. I might move to white lights, but thats about it for now.

@Cityvic: Thanks mate!
@Himashu - thanks for the ideas - but for now I am done don't want to end up with a black cruze. FWIW, I like the chrome in the back. Front might be an option - but it will soon start looking like a racing stripe - I don't want that.

@Ace - soon is not soon enough!

@Driver: I don't know about the sizes for the number boards - are they stock for all vehicles? Or does Utsav allow you to specify you need boards for a cruze?

RE: Carbon fibre: When I do that, I would do it for the bonnet as well - to have the actual weight reduction. For now, this should be the setup hopefully for another couple of thousand kms at least
RE: Spoiler: I discussed with Car nation - he has given me a warranty that it won't go loose - and if it does, he will do the necessary work to restore the vehicle. So for now, am gonna leave it on.

U can choose from the available sizes on their website. There are no car-specific sizes. It's a standard size for all according to the type of vehicle.

BTW, it's DRIV3R and not driver.

The front bumper lower grill sporting a more prominent black theme will make this theme Complete. The car looks great already and just adding a "really fine" mesh like lower grill will make it look terrific and threatening.

@DRIV3R - sorry about the typo - I thought this was just a l33t name!

@VW - my problem is Chevy already has a split grill - so I am worried about having a 3rd split. Either way - I guess my car will stay this way aesthetically for some time. Next up is ICE / tuning.

Recently launched Holden cruze series 2 comes with fine mesh lower grill and it's in black color.

Subu, I think we all like your courage in making your brand new cruze one of the hottest in terms of cosmetic modification. I see that next upgrades are ICE and then the Re-map ( I am in queue and will consider it next year)

However, I dont see a ownership review of your car till now. It would be nice to hear a detailed feedback of what you liked and what you didnt with your car with key emphasize on its performance, ride and handling.

That would also help to check notes if all of us have similar feeling with it.
