Hey I?m new here as of a week or so ago, I recently purchased a 2016 Cruze Limited LS 1.8L 6spd. I figured this would be a great place to get some maintenance advice along with some modification ideas

Welcome to the forums! Don't buy a VG shark fin if that's on your list.
Merc, what soured you on the Shark Fin? I put one on in July and so far it’s been no different than the stock mast antenna.

Just curious...

I was actually planning on the shark fin ? the stock mast is so dinky looking in my opinion. I was also thinking I?d get the BNR tune once she?s out of warranty, I already have the muffler delete with dual tips but I was thinking of replacing the big resonator with the smaller mbrp one, window tint, and black badges. I wanted to swap shift knobs but it looks like it?s a press on unfortunately.

Nothing soured me, 2015/16 limited antenna base is too large to fit it. The Mark II VG fin is the largest size made by the company at this time. Retooling for a 2 year span of cars may cause the price to go up a bit if they did release it. Folks who have prior years are still fine and at this point should hold off till Black Friday to get one.

They actually sale a shorter antenna called the stubby. Since your Cruze is a 2016 limited the shark fins they sale unfortunately won’t fit right with the 2016 unlimited since the WiFi antena is located within the bulky bottom part of the antenna. I am actually going to be purchasing the stubby as I also have a 2016 limited.
