    Where to go from here

    Now that Penny's cruise control upgrade is done, my list of projects for her is pretty much complete... not that the list was all that extensive to begin with. I've been idly pondering a few more things, nothing that strictly *needs* to be done but would be nice to have:

    17" rims and LRR tires
    Amp and sub
    Footwell lighting

    I'm not interested in dropping her as I drive over some pretty horrific speed humps every day. Anyone else have other ideas or feedback?

    Wheels and tires will be a nice upgrade to the handling. Lightweight 17's with a set of higher speed rated tires improve the handling markedly. I notice the tradeoff in ride and handling every winter when going from the OEM 17's and their V speed rated tires to my 16" R speed rated snow tires on aftermarket alloys. The ride gets plusher and the handling abilities of the car decrease. Certain corners I could take at 30 mph I have to slow to 25 mph. On the flip side, road imperfections I noticed with the OEM 17's aren't as noticeable with the snows.

    I'd go functional first, then appearance/sound.

    How do you play music? The Bluetooth PDIM might be useful.

    I'm a huge audiophile, so sitting in my car for 1.5-2.0 hours per day means factory sound starts sounding like nails on a chalkboard. You know who to ask when you're ready for that part.

    Good tires make a WORLD of difference in how pleasurable a car is to drive.

    BEGONE with the crappy Firestones! Put something fun on there...the Cruze is a great-handling little car.

    The Bluetooth PDIM is a great upgrade if you have a use for it.

    PDIM isn't really necessary for me. I use a USB drive for music and my phone doesn't stream over Bluetooth anyway. Think I'll go with the advice to get some rims and tires. Off to Tire Rack!

    No, and they're really not necessary in Phoenix. If you need to illuminate under a layer of anything here, it'll be dust and you'd best not be driving in it anyway.

    I use my fogs all the time. They make near field vision that much better. They also have a wider spread and illuminate the critters on the side of the road.
