got my new cobalt w pictures!

i will still kinda have the focus, it will be my moms car til its paid off, then she can trade it in for a mustang. so i still can drive it sometimes:) i didnt trade it in, i put 2000 down and the cobalt is in my moms name. this is the same thing i posted in the cobalt forums..pretty much copy and paste. that doesnt count as spam does it ? lol

ok first off: PLEASE dont flame if you think its rice..this is the way it came from the factory!! chevy put all this on it. not me

sorry for it being dirty! it just rained.
06 cobalt ls...only option is the spoiler and mp3 radio(so far)
i dont want to get into how much my payments are...cuz its a lot. lol, but i knew that going in, its worth it to me. cobalts are my 'dream cars' because it was my first car. you know how a mans first car is ...its like equalto or greater than his first love :) hehehe

i would like everyones opinions, i love the car personally, but i love all cobalts ^

its a 5 speed! didnt want another auto..i know how hard they are to mod. anyways. onto the show! w/questions...would like some answers!

here's the front. i really dont like the razzi fronts, it sticks out so far and is really low(i'm wondering if the car is lowered too? its lower than my focus w/body kit) also, i thought the razzi kit was just a lip kit, mines like half and half, see the top looks like a stock bumper w/big lip over it, but no...if you look behind the grille theres nothing! its like..uh.... so getting a diff lip is out of the question.



now onto the back, i love the quad/dual exhaust. reminds me of m5's (i know, no comparison lol) stock exhaust is on it, just with a tip on there. also cant wait til i debadge it!



side: i like the rims. from this view you can see how far the front lip sticks out. also, i'm not sure what to do with the flames. sometimes they look cool, sometimes they dont. but they match the rims nicely. btw anyone know what kind of rims these are?



heres a close up of the tip. if i get an exhaust put on, do you think this will bottleneck it?



heres the shifter. it feels like a short shifter and is really nice and tight. i HAVE to get an exhaust, this engine is so quiet i'm not sure when i can let off the clutch lol!

I hope its the camera but the kit looks to be DARKER than the car.

If thats a new car I would be getting the dealer to repainting it, either way I would change that front bumper the back and sides I like.

Congrats on the car.

I love Cobalts, my girlfriend has one. They look really awesome. She was considering that kit. How does that exhaust sound? And does it give it any noticeable gains?
