well I've seen people doing this so i figured i would do my own.

Please feel free to ask questions regarding anything ive posted in this build thread :)

Mod 1

EZ LIP

well i bought this on ebay because i really enjoy a car with a nice lip on the front.
it gives the vehicle a slightly lower and more aggressive look, while at the same time protecting the under edge of your front bumper.

here is the link for the product as found on Ebay:

SUBARU EZ-LIP FRONT BUMPER CHIN SPOILER VALENCE SPLITTER BODY KIT TRIM WING | eBay

installation was about 15 minutes
i put my car on car ramps to have better access underneath and to insure proper adhesion during installation

here are photos of the results:

MOD 4

TINTED WINDOWS


This is one of the few changes i was looking forward to the most.
increase the look of any ride by tinting your windows

Here is the link to where i went to have my windows tinted:

PELTI Vitres Teintées

the owner of the business himself was one of the two guys who applied my tint.
i was unhappy with the tint on the left rear passenger window because it had a grain of sand between the glass and tint, so
he removed it completely and started over again on that window, this was by far the best service i have ever had at a tint shop.
plus the price was under my budget!

Here are the results

Land vehicle Vehicle Car Motor vehicle Alloy wheel
Land vehicle Vehicle Car Automotive exterior Hood
Land vehicle Vehicle Car Chevrolet cruze Alloy wheel
Sky Land lot Tree Grass Architecture
Vehicle Automotive window part Windshield Automotive wheel system Glass



4 windows were tinted to 30% and the rear was tinted to 20%

DRAWBACKS:

cant open my windows for 2 hole days!!! OH NO! oh wait....... i have a sunroof :p



30 percent here in the 2 front windows is illegal but barely noticeable, an officer would have to use a tint meter in order to try and issue me a ticket.

if your looking for a before and after the pictures in my "garage" are un-tinted

yes, the lip is 100 percent universal and will fit any any car ever made by man! it is simply advertized for a different car, look at how its made on the website my friends, its just a piece of shaped foam with double sided 3m tape!

one size fits all!

Did you happen to take a picture of the car before you put the lip on? How thick is that lip?

I only ask because I believe the lip on the Cruze Eco is fairly deep as it is, and this one might be shorter than the stock one. Looks great on your car though.

hey extreme, i have a bit of the lip left over hence you cut off the rest when your finshed, every EZ LIP comes with 7 feet of lip trim. ill throw up some pictures with measurements tomorrow afternoon to give you a good responce to your question, also ill be at my deeler tomorrow so ill take a picture of an rs model and a eco model underneath to have a comparision. as for the befor pictures i believe that any picture of a 2012 rs cruze will serfice thant can be found on google images. ill also take a picture of the underneath of my car so you can see how much of my stock bumper is being covered up.

also thank you to everyone for your comments :)

That's definitely shorter than the OEM Eco lip.

It looks good, though. Other Cruzes just look wrong without some kind of lip on the front.
