What's that?... excessive NVH ...
Do you still have access?... Additionally I spent $60 on alldatadiy.com ...
It is lowered, but I was looking to buy the tires before I decided to lower. I am a bit foggy brained at the moment, but I was under the impression I could go no wider and not have issues. I'm looking forward to see what you come up with.@Blasirl Is yours lowered though? I will double check, but my measurements say the wider tires will fit mine.
i have the stock LTZ 18" rims at +42 and 7.5" wide. I forgot to mention I tried to stay at 26.1" in diameter. They do not stick out.@Blasirl What wheels do you have? How wide and what offset? Do they stick out at all?
I just re-read this. The stock Cruze diesel rims were 18x7.5 so the Verano rims would be a good option for the dieselers.@Blasirl The verano stock tires are 235/45/r18 on 18x 8" for a 26.3" tall tire
Measurements taken blindly with the car on the ground say even 265/40r18 will fit (would love to put those on the car), really need to get it up on a 4 post lift to check adequately.
OOPs, my bad, I was one line off when I looked at the chart, but that is why I posted it too.Stock CTD wheels are 17x7.
Did you by any chance keepp track of your expenditures...or is this a labor of love?A brief update on the state of Cruzen 2.0
Dropped off at a local dealer Monday to have the BCM (that I damaged) replaced. Tech installed the new module but couldn't get the car to start, Friday he chased it down to the key not being seen by the BCM via the NFC receiver that reads the key fob if its dead or to program a new one to the car. The dealer ordered a new receiver module and it should be in this coming Monday.
I had a talk with the tech about how he had determined what the problem was just to make sure one of my numerous mods wasn't the problem. The highlights are that he made sure all the various computers/modules were communicating, then tried a brand new key and still the BCM wouldn't see it.
As an aside, I was prepared for the cost of this venture, not so much how long it would take! I've been told I'm like someone who's kid is in the hospital, I know its not fatal but I still worry and I want my baby back!
Oh well, nothing to do but wait for news from the dealer.
EDIT: I chose to do this now because I want to get a tune for the thing and the dealer wouldn't work on it if I had tuned it. This means if I wanted the problems fixed then I would have to try the BCM replacement before any tuning. And I really want (as an example) the 370hp (peak) from a BNR tune!
So, the two wrecked vehicles, parts etc, not including your Labor...$12.5k, not bad if you consider the journey part of your education or possibly therapy.@Blasirl I need to go back through and make sure its all documented but I have kept track and even with my messups its still about $10k
EDIT: Here are the costs after going over the numbers
$10.5k for the base completed vehicle w/ tune
$11k incl winter wheels & tires
add $600 for spare trans
$12.5 Including winter tires, spare trans, and all wasted or unused parts
I can't wait to see this thing in person...New wheels and something else...
BNR Tune has taken the car from Quick to Brutal!
I was thinking that exact thing as I looked at the picture. LOLView attachment 270487
And yes, I may someday get a replacement hood. Not right now though.
I think you got the sawzall to close when you cut out the headlamp....Photo dump from the headlight project (mostly chronological)

What about the fascia? :1poke:@Blasirl Just some cheap open box headlights I found on eBay. I used a hole saw running backwards to cut the lens and the hole is good enough for its function. I actually cut the tube by hand separate from the headlight after tracing an aproximate cut line with it in place.
I know you have one already, but there are a few internet sites that sell them painted for about $170 shipped. example@Blasirl I didn't realize thats what you were reffering to. I got the bumper off eBay and it came from a wrecked car, that was how it arrived. It was about $100 cheaper than anything else though and I dont care about it
