My 2013 Chevy Sonic RS came in!

It was delivered late last night (I creep cruised through the dealership to see if it was there yet lol)

Specs:

Manual
Black Granite Metallic paint
Sunroof
RS package comes with mylink radio, touchscreen and full leather interior with heated seats and power everything


Dealer installed options:
Splash guards
Pedal Covers
Borla Performance exhaust upgrade
Black 17" rims



MY side purchased and installed options:

12" JL W3v3 & JL500 amp w/ slim box for hideaway under hatch
20% tint all around
Weathertech mats and window deflectors
Laminex for the headlights

Future upgrades:
ZZP intake (10HP)
Trifecta tune (48HP)

I have to say I am really pleased with the pricing and options that are available. I love having a small tuned car. And for the price and warranty I couldn't turn this away. MSRP is $22,070 and I got it for CONSIDERABLY less than that... I know the sales manager..




My parents drove by this morning to snap pics while im at work lol oh well come on 4PM!!!



anyway what's a thread without pics?





15% tint on!



custom sub enclosure done by Tony's Street Dreamz in Morgantown, wv. with a JL 12" w3v3 and JL 600 amp.

And another econobox that gets a proper exhaust option but outside the ST the Focus is stuck with a steel pipe. I see alot of sub $20k cars (ala Honda Fit) with at least a real tip.

A little small for my tastes but not a bad little car.

See above.

Car looks good. Did they swap the wheels yet? Pic looks off-colored reference the pic you posted.

EDIT: We posted at the same time.

I'm just not a fan of the looks of these things.. but 10hp off an intake and 48 from a tune means there's probably a lot of hidden power in the engine bay.

I'm sure you'll have fun finding it all haha.

And a factory Borla exhaust? That's awesome. I <3 my Borla.

I do like it from the front but the back end is a bit flat and looks like a Kia Soul's baby mixed with some sporty car the mom had an affair with.

Not too bad looking, must be some really restrictive stock intake if an aftermarket one can net that little 1.4l 10hp.

So I did a little reading on these cars. So it's 2,800 lbs and 135hp at about $21k. Kind of odd. I'm guessing they're just full of character to drive, which is the appeal?
