so i may have done something stupid?

ive been driving by this red lnf almost everyday for months and have been putting of test driving it because its not the best financial decision for me. but today i said **** it, lets see how it feels. well as you can imagine it felt RIGHT. i think i scared the shit out of the salesman when i hit 110 in a sixty. hmmm what to do. i know this isnt the best economy to buy a new car. but with the rebates it will be like buying my car again. just gotta figure out what my insurance company says about me driving a turbo car, and sleep on it for a while. but.....DAMN that was fun. was my first boosted car drivin.

Yeah, I have had thoughts of test driving one with no intention of buying it.. But I'm afraid it would change my mind!

thats what im afraid of! hopefully after i sleep on it ill come to the right decision. at least it wasnt yellow or white. i might have a harder time saying no then. but its going to be hard. that competitive driving mode is just.....wow.
besides the actual drive, it was kinda fun. the salesman has a stage 2 sc, so we talked cobalts, and then he showed me his. might have made a new cobalt buddy if nothing else.

yeah the rotors are SHIT. super shit, after about 10k miles it sounds like you dragging a tin garbage can behind you. And the stock intake rubs against the ac line and willl burn a hole in it. And watch out, its 500$ to replace a damn AC line.
