what fog lights? you have a link to the ones your looking at?
First off Welcome to CruzeTalk. Fog lights were the first thing I put on my car.
I bought the complete fog light kit. it is pretty much plug n play + comes with a new headlight switch to operate the lights. These are if you like the look of stock fog lights:

Nice Cruze and welcome to the forum! You'll definitely see some fuel savings going from an Escalade to a Cruze lol. I went from a '95 Chevy K1500 with a 5.7L that was lucky to get 10 mpg and a '98 Camaro Z28 with an LS1 that was lucky to get 17 mpg. My Cruze gets 4x what the truck gets and at least double what the Camaro gets. Fog lights is a nice mod on the Cruze's. I really wish that all models had them offered as a factory option because I would've loved to get some for my Diesel. If you are looking for power mods, I believe it is Trifecta that makes a tune for the 1.4T and lots of people seem to like it. By the way, I've only been on this forum for about 6 months, but it is an absolutely fantastic forum. People don't seem to have pointless arguments nor do they criticize you if you ask stupid questions. Personally, I'm not aware of any of the issues with the 1.4T. I think there was a coolant issue or something to that effect, but I'm guessing some other guys on here can help you out with things to watch for. As a side note, a guy in a Facebook group I'm part of has a 2013 Cruze Eco manual with 250,000 miles on it!!!! So obviously they have potential to last a long time haha :) Anyways, enjoy the new car!

Welcome to the forum. All Holden Cruze models come standard with fog lights here even though we don't get much fog. Hope you enjoy the help you will get when you need it as the guys are generous with information on here.

Welcome in from Connecticut, I have the same car as you, only in silver
ive learned a lot by just reading through all the sub forums, I hope you are as happy with yours as I am with mine.
its too bad about the front license plate, we have to use one in CT, and it spoils the look of the front end, In my opinion

Welcome! There sure is a how to library under the technical tab I believe. I've learned a lot from this site and only been here a month!! Great people great info! Those mods your talking about tinting taillights, debadging, all that's in there plus some easy DIY power mods. For sure do the intake res. Delete if u want some extra pickup right out it's worth it! Cheers!
