What is My Car?!

Ok guys. i have a 2005 cobalt LS 2.2L manual, thats the arrival blue coupe. Ive had my car for a while and ive always noticed things my car has that i cant find on any other cobalts... like,
i have a 140mph gauge thats all white like in the ss n/a's,
i do have the fog lights,
i have heated seat plugs on the bottom of my seat hanging down that cant connect to anything,
when i scan my car with my tuner since i went boosted it reads as an 08 vin and comes up 2008... when GM reads it, it reads fine... and i know HP tuners doesnt make a tune for a manual 05..,
it came with the 5 spoke 15s that ive seen around,
and i think thats it as of now... if i find more ill let you know... the mph gauge is what throws me off the most. i am the second owner of the car and it was an older man that had it and did not switch out anything in the car. any suggestions? i noticed the special edition 2008 has the same cluster in it... just an observation. anything helps. thanks!

LS is the "upgraded" model in 05. They switched that to be the LT 06-10. My LS had 5 spoke rims, heated seats, etc. What is strange is that when scanned it comes up with an 08. Could have had the ECU replaced under warranty? Have you had the VIN ran?

If you bought it used, someone probably already did a lot of mods. Age of the original owner means nothing now a days.

well ive had the vin ran by several places. mostly gm dealerships. it reads as an 08 but will still not let hp tuners tune it or go anyfurther than just reading it. thats the weird part. all vins match up and the original owner kept all the papers and no ecu swaps or anything... i belive it was an older couple.... but the thing that throws me is the fact about the spedo as well... any thoughts? thanks guys good info so far

well we've got a retired grandpa somewhere on this forum, so age means absolutely nothing. when someone buys a car brand new from the dealer, there's a guy that comes out and talks options with the car. maybe the couple wanted all the best options for the car along with the already priced ones on the car. go trifect instead of hp tuners if it won't let you do anything.

i was meaning that nothing was done to the car before i got it.. thats what i ment by it was an older couple that owned it... other than that i dont belive the 140mph was an option for the ls... but im going with trifecta when i get my oil lines fixed up. but any other opinions about my car?! the 140 kinda bugs me the most... i love it but i want to know why i have it when no others dont. and i love my fogs and i understand that ls was the lt in 2005 but the spedo just throws me...
