    Oh and I don't wanna pay $800ish dollars upfront to register it either
    I understand completly, OK plates are hideous, thats why you try and get a personalized plate or some affiliation plate.

    But the taxes/registration here are outrageous....but those prices also help prevent inspections and emissions requirements.
    Yeah I can see the whole state inspection thing, luckily though I don't have to keep up with TX state inspections since I'm military and OK doesn't require it

    Pretty nice actually. Seats are comfortable. Interior is laid out well. Great gas mileage. It's the standard model though. Didn't notice any badging.
    It's on jackstands.

    The cruze does indeed have awesome fluid power steering, my girflriend has one and I drive it.
    It amazingly has pretty good pickup for a 4 Banger but I'm sure it has to do with the gearing and taking advantage of the gears on the tranny
    Gas mileage is unbelievale but its probably because I'm just used to city driving with my cammed out TA lol =P

    Yeah the steering is really soft/easy, I was impressed with it but then again it's been a while since I drive a newer car gas mileage is awesome! Then again I'm also used to my 02 avalanche and the Trans am

    Those are good looking cars, especially the LTZ/RS models. If you've ever seen any of the WTCC races, the Cruze dominates that series and does it while looking bad azz. I'm waiting to see if GM brings the hatchback version over here. If so, I may consider one as my new DD.

    Thanks
    Yeah I joined a Cruze forum and I've seen pics of that Cruze, looks pretty good. If GM brings a hatch with a 2.0T, I'll definetly trade this in on that!

    i did a quick fix to the front bumper that turned out amazing on my last car (got pics somewhere if you want).

    I cut out the excess material where the drilling pushed the bumper with an exacto knife. Rolled up some Magnum steel, filled the holes and rolled over them with a battery (like a steam roller). Once Dry I used my touch up pen to over fill the bumper so that the paint was higher than the rest.

    Once cured I sanded and buffed that section. Was 99% hidden and worst case scenario I could screw back into those spots If I got in enough trouble.

    Finally figured out what you meant by "overlays" -- had to go back and look at the pics in the first post. They do look good!

    For others that might not know, by overlays he means the Chevy symbol inlays.

    excuse the pics. only ones I had on phone.

    didn't have any before. took an exacto knife and cut the excess material out from around the holes. rolled up some magnum steel like a playdoh worm and pushed into the holes. then used a aa battery to smooth.
    once cured, over fill with paint from touch up pen.

    started sanding (five spots)


    after



    was only like fifteen min of actual work.
