Installed Brembo brakes yesterday. The kit is actually listed for the Sonic, but since the Cruze uses the same calipers and rotors, it would seem that they would work. A friend that happens to be a brake engineer crunched the numbers and the Brembo kit was within 5% of the stock output, so there was no reason to NOT give it a try. Hope the video link works.

You know the only upgrade I ever did in my previous Car was order OEM All Weather Mats that 'seemed' to fit. In fact they were sold online by a Hyundai Dealer for my model, although Hyundai had revised the car to put an extra post to hold the mats in place. Let me just say it was the biggest automotive mistake I ever made when the mat slid under the accelerator. I'd only use the exact parts for your specific Car?

could you ask for your buddy to look into the turbo Diesel for brakes upgrade? would love brembo on the diesel. maybe with some wider, stickier tires with some extra brakes and i could keep a lil more speed into the turns to offset the diesel

Just check the GM part numbers and as long as the calipers, rotors and steering knuckle are the same on the diesel they would fit.

Unfortunately it looks like there isn't anything that would work for the diesel, as Brembo doesn't list anything for Buick.

Awesome mod! Thanks for sharing. Do you have any photos of the wheel on with the Brembos? Will the 1LT wheels clear the Brembos?

The brakes are great. Good pedal feel, nice and smooth, and the balance is spot on. The suspension is a little on the stiff side for street use, but the handling feels nice. I hope to get it on the track later in the summer to see how the suspension is balanced.
