Hey thanks guys
Got a couple of general questions for ya !
In my first Cobalt (2005), the DRL (lights set on "auto") were just the two flashers staying lit up all the time until it went dark and then the white main lights lit up, but now on my 2008 Cobalt, the DRL are the main white lights and went it goes dark, the two flashers light up with the main lights. Did they change the DRL, or is something broken ?
I got the stock Cobalt sound system, but have kept all the Pioneer speakers and sub from my first one. Would it be possible to put the Pioneer speakers in my new Cobalt, or am I better off purchasing an aftermarket set ?
If I want to use my Cobalt as a DD but with light track use, should I just put the SS suspension on it or seek full aftermarket coilovers ? I want to lower it, that's for sure, and I don't want cut springs or just put lowering springs on stock (and therefor incorrectly set) dampeners as this kills the handling.
What's the best way to keep it rust free ? I live in Canada, and this car is surprisingly rust free (except for the bottom of all 4 doors and under the sides (when the painted body reaches the unpainted floor)). Should I just do a full touch up of all the dents and paint chips, wax it and wash it often ?
Does the SS exhaust line fits the L61 ? I sure would like a nicer sound out of it :P
And final question, is there a way to make the throttle response more aggressive ? I'm used to driving a fully mechanical 1999 Honda Civic where my gas pedal is connected to the throttle body by a wire which makes the engine respond immediately to a change in the pedal position. I don't know if it's exclusive to that electronic throttle thingy that the Cobalt (and all new cars) seem to have, but my throttle response seems sluggish. It seems like the engine is trying to interpret what I want instead of doing what I ask... For example, if I'm driving at 100 km/h on fifth gear and push my foot down a little (but not flooring it obviously) the engine will suddenly jump to about 5k RPM and then settle down to 2.5k or whatever it was at before even though I didn't mess with the pedal apart from pushing a little further... It seems like I'm driving an automatic even though it's a manual lol
I don't know if it was the right place to ask these, but the topic of each of these questions is so different from one another, I thought it would be better to ask them all in the same place ! Please do tell me if you'd like me to post individual topics in the appropriate subs instead !
