    I want to show you how I upgraded my dashboard, from a Chevy Cruze with Korean specifications (VM motori 150 hp diesel engine) to one with a DIC that displays more information. What we are going to need is a new speedo cluster (in my case it came from an Opel Insignia (GM Europa) I bought it in...

    I'm interested in getting a set of fogs and the headlight switch from the scrap yard and adding them to my 2012 eco mt. I have the Putco model 239008HW upgraded wiring harness already in. I was wondering if anybody has any ideas on how about doing this. I would like the fogs to operate the...

    I'm so happy with the upgrade. Don't get me wrong, I loved my 2011 2LT but the lack of BT tech, backup camera, touch screen, and display of remaining fuel and MPH at the same time really always irked me. But now I have it all with a black 2015 LTZ with RS package. Once I get the bowties...

    Hello I will be purchasing a GM fog light setup (housings, harness, stock switch panel, etc). I currently have 6k HIDs in projector housings as my primary low beams. There is a drastic cutoff on the sides, so making right turns by high curbs can be nervewrecking. I have great distance, nice...

    I had a 2012 Cruze – 2LT that I have driven for the last 80,000 miles or so.(Purchased with 7,000 miles on it) It proved itself to be reliable, get decent mileage and I had no doubt that it would last well over 200k miles if I needed it to. (I put about 23-24k miles per year on it driving to...

    I just traded in my Chevy Sonic for a 2013 Cruze. While the Sonic was a good running car with a good ride (for a small car) I found it to be just a bit TOO small for my liking. Loving the Cruze right now and it's the car I should have bought instead of the Sonic. Still on my first tank of gas...

    Hey everyone, I have a 2011 Chevy Cruze LTZ, I recently bought a after market deck from a friend and installed it, deck turns on but I have no sound throughout the entire car, nothing through the speakers chimes included. I do have the upgraded Pioneer system (I didn't know this forum existed...

    Just got my cruze today, but I knew the first thing I would be needing is new reverse bulbs. I picked up a set of Phillip 921 White Vision LEDs from amazon, and I have to say, I'm quite impressed! The stock output was nowhere near this. If I have time over the weekend, I'll swap the originals...

    I have been doing some reading/research and it seems at least to me that if in 2013 you ordered a sunroof that it came in a package deal with the upgraded radio. Is this correct? I have a sunroof but basic radio. Is there a way to tell from VIN if my car should have had the upgraded radio?

    Why would the check engine light come on with HIDs? I used a bi xenon kit which connects to one socket, and included the warning ca fellers. Anyone else had similar problem? solutions?

    Just upgraded 2012 Cruze LS yesterday for a 2014 1LT AT in silver. I wasn't really interested in getting rid of my '12, but I did qualify for the 0% financing. So the LS had nothing except radio controls on the wheel. I did upgrade to cruise control and that was it. So now, for $50 more a...

    So I just took delivery of my Cruze (2014, 1LT w/ Pioneer upgraded system), and already the mod ideas are flowing. I don't think I'll do much in the way of mechanical as it's an automatic (WAF :/) maybe some lowered springs and slightly larger wheels and shoes to remove the gap. As for the in...

    Has anyone used an MS8 in there pioneer upgraded system. I'm having a hard time finding out where to tap into the harness to get a full range signal. Are the stock tweeters on there own channels, or are the in parallel with the front mid bass? The rear door speakers are listed as full range...

    Been looking at new cruzes on the dealers websites and really liked the RS. Seen them before and like the sportier look. I went to the dealership friday and upgraded my 2011 LS to at 2014 Red Hot RS(LT). They gave me a good trade in on my LS and OK rebates I guess and the only thing I sorta...

    For anyone that was looking to upgrade the battery to a large AGM in their Cruze, I have great news! I recently purchased an XS Power D4800, and it fits pretty darn good. Looks like there is still room for a larger battery, but this is the best fit that I found. Pics below.
