    Congrats! Very nice! I thought the lip spoiler I'd seen in photos was standard on the turbo. I'm glad to see it's not.

    Congrats. I just ordered our first turbo yesterday. The spoiler is standard but dealer installed.

    Congrats! I know that Trifecta just started working on ECU tunes. Heard nothing but rants and raves about them on the cruze forums.

    I really like the new Buicks. And this car is just great. Congrats!

    Wow, great looking car in that Crystal Red Tintcoat.

    I sorta agree with a poster on another thread. It would have been nice to distinguish the Verano Turbo in some way such as specific wheels. On the other hand, that would remove some of the "sleeper" effect. Without the T nobody knows what you have under the hood.

    Just wondering, why did you trade your Sonata Turbo - was it old or high miles? Did you like it?

    the sonata was great never had a problem and no rattles, the tuning abilities for the sonata sucks, and ive been eyeing the verano for a long time. and i wanted to get back to gm.

    How about an update on your Verano Turbo? How do you like it so far? Don't leave us hanging.

    My apologies for being nitpciky, but AFAIK only the turbo has dual exhaust, there's supposed to be a lip spoiler, and although there is no standard turbo-specific wheel, there is an optional one for leather group and premium group only.
