Seems like a really great seat. But theres quite a few other things you could get with that kind of money. What exactly caused you to want new seats?

My turbo lag is your courtesy head start.

well my brother had racing seats in his mustang honestly and I know a few other people who have racing seats as well and they're just comfortable for me,sometimes when I am driving I get a little to uncomfortable with the seats that are in it right now,unless I can honestly find some sort of gel like seat covers

The Corbeau bucket seats are much better than the crappy stock Cobalt ones. I had a write up on swapping them but it got lost when the site crashed.

My drivers seat is caving in where it meets the seatback. Anyone else have this issue?

I would personally just cover them I've been looking at coverking covers they're fitted and look nice. the cobalt's seat already have a sporty feel to them

Ever pushed the car hard through corners with the stock seat? You have to hang onto the steering wheel to keep from sliding around the cabin. Cobalt seats are not the least bit sporty, they're pretty flat with crappy bolstering and that stupid forward tilting head rest always made me feel like I was looking down.

Most aftermarkets will be more comfortable and supportive.

There's a bit of irony there... I use to own a 1994 Olds Cutlass Supreme convertible. The thing had bucket seats in the front and rear but they were leather. Pushing on corners was scary for people in that thing cause we slid all over the place haha. But I do agree with the dislike of the headrest.

Are the leather seats more comfortable? You can probably get a couple for not that much I would hope. I may have to do something like that if they cant fix my crappy regular seat.
