So My Wifes Cobalt Just Became My Main Transportation.

Hey guys, So I was on here a little bit here and there.
Did the retrofit and thats pretty much it.

But we bought my wife an 08 Nissan Pathfinder and then I sold
my Ford Explorer so her 08 Cobalt SE became my main mode of transportation.

I still have a 92 bmw 325i I tinker with but might sell it too.
So with this new change of plans you'll probably see a lot more of me
here soon.

I have a few plans for it since I'll be driving it now and we'll try to
keep the miles off of the pathfinder. Both Cobalt and Pathfinder are 2008's with 145,000 miles. Crazyness... My ford explorer was an 02 with 102,000 miles... lol

So, Plans I have now that it's not my wifes?

Another Retrofit... Since I sold hers thinking we were selling the cobalt...
Replace the factory Audio unit with probably what I installed in the Explorer.
A Jensen VX7020. Back Up Camera, HardWired Dash Cam and Hardwired Escort Redline RD and a Small 10" Sub and amp since it's sitting in my house collecting dust...


Details
2008 Chevy Cobalt, SE ( Special Edition ) Which I'm told is just an lt?
Bought brand new with 8 miles in Nov. of 2007... It now has 145k miles.
Mods: 18% Tint
That's all... But not for long since it's mine now. lol

This is a really shitty cell phone picture...



Here is a better one, But when it had stock wheels and no Tint....
Aside from the wheels/tint same car.



Now it has regular oem style headlights I bought from ebay.

But that should change soon if I have anything to do with it

That sucks, Hopefully its just the front lens.

Also, yes the stripes came like that.
Thinking about getting some black vynal to go over it so the car isn't so noticeable.

Its not just the lens. the whole headlight assembly is broken. Got to buy another headlight and try to rebuild it. Speaking of which what sealant did you use for the lenses so I can pick some up.

I used butyl from TRS, They sell a package for $15 IIRC.

I haven't decided if Im going to keep it, or try and sell it for something else.
I really want a manual car. I'd love to have another E39 6 Speed V8 BMW...

But, If I keep it yeah.

-FXR 3.0 Bi-Xenon Retrofit
-SwitchBack LED DRL Strip in the headlight (I think. Haven't decided)
-F5 Fast Bright 55W Ballast
-CNLight 5000k D2S bulbs

-7" Touch Screen Multi Media Unit, Nav, Back Up Camera, CD, DVD, USB, Aux, Pandora App.
-10" Sub/Sealed Slim Box with small amp just for Something that fills the car
Possible a Slim LED Bar just under the front emblem in the grill sorta. Not sure yet.
-Led Tails
-Lowering Spring Maybe...

I really don't think I'll do anything more than that.
