    Illuminated Emblem "Glowtie" Install on a 2017 Cruze Premier RS

    Hello fellow Cruzers,

    Below is my first project of 2019. I always loved the look of the "Glowtie" on the new Camaros so when I saw they released it for the Cruze I was interested. It's a pricey mod for what it is so I initially put in on the back burner... Fast forward to last week I was pleasantly surprised with an early birthday present from my Dad.

    The "Glowtie" was installed in about 20 mins it plugs in directly into either the left or right side headlight assembly and comes with zip ties to keep everything neat and tidy. After removing the stock emblem you do have to drill a hole in the center of the grill for the wire to run through, but it is completely covered by the new badge. I'm pretty satisfied with the look and when it's not lit the chrome backing gives it a stock appearance.

    Since my Cruze is a 2017, the stock badge is gold (GM Part: 84377301 Sedan, GM Part: 84377302 Hatch) so I ended up blacking mine out with some Plastidip.

    Stock badge in gold.

    Is the gold center piece removable?

    That looks awesome. This is an actual GM part? Will this fit the Gen1?

    It is a genuine GM part (GM Part: 84377301 Sedan, GM Part: 84377302 Hatch). Unfortunately it seems to be exclusive to Gen 2 cars at this time.

    Unfortunately I didn't take any installation pictures but I could probably recreate the steps, take a few pics and write up a tutorial when I get time. It was a simple plug and play job the only actual modification to the car would be a drilled hole for the wire to enter the engine bay. I was actually surprised with how easy it was to do.

    Step 4 remove front fascia. Do have to remove whole front end to do this?

    Agree 100% if it wasn't for my Dad and his generous birthday gift this mod would be an after thought. But I guess when you're retired on a full pension and tax time hits all at once you have cash to throw around haha #grateful
