    Cool Aw yeah new cruze time!

    I got my 2012 A/T Eco this past saturday and the only reason i haven't posted about it already is because I am so friggin in love with it
    Seriously this car is so awesome, and I am upgrading from a 1999 Plymouth Neon so you have no idea how surreal this is, hahaha.

    I'll always have a soft spot for the ol' neon, but my cruze feels like I drive a spaceship in comparison!!
    Even with that though, I kind of miss feeling the engine when I drive, with the neon i felt every little bump, and every little growl the engine made, which most people hate but I guess I am strange...
    So no more stalling, picture time >=D

    (check out this red malibu in the background, its red with envy)

    Just so you know what I was dealing with before, heres the trusty neon deathtrap lol

    Also, I gotta say thanks to everyone on the site for helping me make the decision on which car to get, you guys made the difference!

    I really love the blue topaz color, but I feel like no custom bowtie will go better with it than the stock one, and I kinda always thought about which color I'd pick back when I was fantasizing about my cruze haha now I don't think i'll change it.

    I had a 99 elantra almost to 200k miles so I understand the excitement! I picked up a 2011 eco for a great deal 4 hours away. I'm still jealous...As great as the price was, I got silver. I couldn't find the blue you got in what I was looking for.

    You'll want to check out the thread on the spark plugs being gapped wrong of the lot. Should be .035 and most peoples plugs are around .024 or so for the people that have checked theirs.

    You may want to also check out the bypassing the intake resonator and get a drop in K&N filter. These 2 things will help you pick up even more mpgs.

    I ran a test and it was only going to cost about $80 per 15k miles for 93 octane. It burns cleaner and gives you better mpgs. Test it for yourself.

    You've picked the right forum to join for your Cruze. There are a lot of great guys on here full of great info. Keep searching the forum, and most importantly ENJOY THE NEW WHEELS!!!!!
