    Merry Christmas 2 ya´ll.... Found some time today to finally install my lower RS grill and plasti dip´d my diffuser.

    I was thinking about how to get colder air inside the engine, without removing the resonator. After looking at the cruze's upper grill, I notice that it is a solid piece of plastic. So I wanted to start a discussion about the pros and cons. Or possibly grinding out the honeycomb design and...

    Has anyone modified the US Cruze to fit the aftermarket Holden Cruze grills? As I am sure you would all know you would need to cut away the bar in the grill that holds the chevy emblem. If anyone has done it or know of someone that has can you post some pics to see how badly butchered or clean...

    I've searched and searched and searched and searched and searched. Any leads? I have nothing against Chevy, but I love the look of a badgeless front and rear. No make, model, trim, dealer, etc. Just paint and grill and trunk. Old VW/Audi habits die hard.

    I ultimately would like this result on my Cruze. I would try to incorporate if possible this front bumper pictured, the grill and rim style. The kit I believe is from a Korean-spec Cruze and would like to know am I heading up an uphill battle trying to fit that grill on a US-Spec model? As far...

    I saw a Chrystal Red RS Cruze with the chrome grill from GM Accessories today. Looks pretty nice and would likely look even better on a black car. Not sure it's worth 400 Washingtons, but I like the look.

    I bought my 2011 Chevy cruze in December 2011 used. Recently I started to notice that smoke was coming from the grill of my car. It first happened on a rainy day. I drive 40 miles one way to work. But it will start to smoke of I sit idle at a stop sign or stop light for too long. It then...

    So as I was parked getting gas today, someone backed into my car (while it was parked at pump) and banged up my grill pretty good. The chrome trim around the black comb part got scuffed up pretty good too, so does anyone know if that's all one piece? Any pics or good aftermarket ones out...
