Hi Cruzers, some may remember me, im Poje, the guy who raced an RS Cruze, did alot of mods to suspension and brakes. Here my most recent pic of my current car : Cruze3ans.JPG


On Friday, i will take delivery of my new car : 2015 Cruze Diesel!

Why?

I wanted the bigger engine, the diesel experience (1st time) and i wanted the leather interior. Its gonna be a White one and for sure i will do mods, but on this one, its gonna be mild, nothing extreme.

With the experience i got from having a Cruze for 3 years, seeing what mods works and some that don't, i will be more conservative with this new car and enjoy to stock confort and silence a bit more.

I will post pics on Friday and i will keep this thread open for futur mods!

Already with the lil test drive i did, i was quite impressed with the midrange Torque.

Need to get used to the Diesel noise tho!

Hehe, ya. :th_salute:

When i bought my Cruze, my 1st one that is, i checked on the net to see all the possible mods i could do and that influenced my choice to buy this car.

These are the stock Diesel wheels, 17 inchers with 5-115 bolt patern, unique to Diesel for Cruze, but same of Verano, Volt and ATS.

Unfortunately. I'm really not a fan of my diesel wheels, but I love the 2LT wheels. Oh well.

I hope you love your new CTD!

Welcome to the Diesel club!
We really like ours, 20K miles in its first year.

If you REALLY want 2LT wheels you can always have the hubs and rotors redrilled for the other pattern.

Your experience is reflecting that of other CTD operators.

Agreed. even at its worse moments the CTD only has some tiny nit picks i would change and that's it. for a car to be great out of the box with just a tiny nit pick is great. love the white paint job by the way, i unfortunately had to get champagne silver metallic
