I might order those letters too. For $10 it's a pretty good deal, even if it takes a month to get.

Aussie, that engine cover looks cool.

Do you like this engine cover? I don't think it will fit the Chevy as the engine is from Korea.

I had seen your pics in previous posts. I do like that much better than the US version. The first time I saw one in person with the hood open I couldn't believe it only said Ecotec (which my 6 year old Pontiac G6 has). I thought maybe it was a preproduction model or something. All the diesel pickups have huge emblems all over them to make sure you know from every angle that it's a diesel. Why are they making this so subdued?

Good find. I asked the wife for the Holden badges for Christmas so we shall see.

MilTown,

I think it's more of a personalization than anything. Just like adding wheels or tint. I don't care of others know its a TD but I like the looks of the badge, its different.

I never noticed how small the emblem is on my CTD. I like it the way it is... JMHO.

I don't notice the typical diesel smelling exhaust either. My CUT tractor needs the help of glow plugs below 50 degrees and blows clouds of black smoke when started.

I really don't understand his fascination, I could care less if anyone know's my car is a diesel.

This is like the third or fourth thread I have seen about this.
For me personally, I want to raise the awareness so more people buy diesel cars. It would also be a good conversation starter with fellow gearheads.

I too want to raise awareness of diesel vehicles. Most people don't even know Chevy offers the diesel Cruze or have any idea of the fuel mileage capability. I want to see this car succeed so that they sell a whole bunch of them. This will benefit us all in the long run as it will lead to more knowlege and better aftermarket support.

I got the emblems from ebay. I'm experimenting with a couple different layouts. The white backing film is still attached to the letters. When actually applied there will just be the individual letters. I will probably remove the Sutliff dealer emblem at some point too. Which style do you guys like the best?

Looking at your pictures, just the word "DIESEL" seems to be the most balanced as it looks more even. ECOTEC on the engine cover seems wrong with Turbo Diesel, is there any way turbo can blot this out and diesel on the other side of the bow tie?

I just ordered the Holden emblem from ebay. I plan on removing the OEM green "eco square" on the back of mine, then putting the holden badge on the other side of the boot.
