  2. Cruze Owner Projects
    Going to be using this thread as a living document regarding the history of my rare 2018 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback RS Diesel and the vehicle's evolution through modifications. Recently I came to find out that this exact car was used for the official Chevy launch of the Cruze diesel hatchback...
  3. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    Hello, Just like the title, Opel badges on my manual 2018 cruze diesel hatch. Just for entertainment purposes, how would one do that? I tried to use the search to see if others have done this and I didn't have any luck. Do they make kits if someone wanted to do this? Or can the parts just...

  8. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    So ANOTHER cool Opel has joined the ranks. The Opel Adam S is a size down from the Sonic RS/Barina RS yet gets a tune of the 1.4T. Outputs climb from 103kW (138HP) and 200Nm (148lbft) to 110kW (147HP) and 220Nm (162lbft). To top it out you get a body-kit, upgraded brakes, lowered and stiffened...

    The Cruze's cousin, the Opel Astra will soon have an even crazier variant derived from the already impressive 206kW (275HP) and 400Nm OPC. The car is set to include a roll-cage, racing seats, 6-point harness, extensive use of carbon-fiber, a large aero kit, handling upgrades and a tune of the...

    After recently pulling Opel from Australian shores, information has come out that the Holden badge may be applied to Opel cars including the Astra once production ceases in SA, rather than badging Chevy cars such as the Cruze and Camaro. Holden Astra set to return to Australia alongside new Euro...
