I'm done lurking....

Hi everyone,

I've been lurking on this site for a few weeks now. I'm in the middle of switching to a new job that would require about 90 mile drive one way, so i was looking for something better than my current car on gas. I currently driving a 2008 Dodge Charger SXT AWD that can barely get 19/20 mpg on the highway. Of all the cars I've been looking at, the cruze is definitely the one I want. IMO, it has the best styling in its class. So I'm looking to a pick up a used 2013 LT2 within the next week.

I plan on keeping this car for a long time, so I was wondering if there any things I should be considering doing to the car once I get it. One thing I've read from lurking is to get an oil catch can. Anything else? Once I get it, I'm planning on getting an Injen CAI and the Trifecta tune for it. If there's one gripe I have about the cruze, is that I think it's a little underpowered. Since I'll be coming from a V6 that I also had some mods done on, I'll definitely be getting the tune to appease my right foot.

Another question I have is, has anyone ever done a conversion of their side marker lamps to turn signals, or made it work as both? I've searched but maybe my search wasn't extensive enough.

Driving 90 miles in Michigan on snow covered roads? Ha, I would think about moving. Wife's co-worker is 55 miles away, know the roads, a poorly maintained state road and country roads. Many times she will spend the night here, or use up her PTO when she can't make it.

We settled on the 2LT wanted manual with a spare tire, electrically heated seats, and leather. In the summer can average 46 mpg if I can hold it to 63 mph. Winter don't ask, never know what kind of gas I am buying in Wisconsin. Tank before was only 27 mpg. Last tank was 32 mpg. Only use ethanol free 91 octane. The best we have around here.
