SS Badges on a Sport

So I've been kicking around the idea to add the SS badges on to the Sport. On one hand if I woulda bought a 2006-2007 it would've been an SS, and there really wasn't any changes for the 2008 year. Then again, it technically isn't an SS and I would be fraudin. I've seen this done on more than one Sport just wonderin' what you guys think of it.

Mods: debaged, carbon fiber hood, painted interior trim, lowered

I vote no.. IMO the 2.4 should never had been called an SS in the first place. Sport is a good name for it. Its not a Super Sport!

True. It actually reminds me of a Z24 Cav, maybe I'll just throw a Z24 badge on it and call it a day,lol. Those poor cars were victims to many awful mods. Look at this guy for an example:

It's your car and you can put whatever you want on it. The SS badges will most likely get irritating as you'll have to explain over and over again. Truth is the 08 Sport is a one-year wonder and kind of a rarity. SS/2.4 is a 2-year wonder and (at least with mine when I had it) left much to be desired. Some will argue differently but if you look at the mildly modified 2.2 Vs 2.4 Cobalts' dragstrip times you'll see what I mean.

I wouldn't do it. Just remove the sport badge. People who know about bcobalts will think ur an SS if you don't have the sport badge. The bodies are the same. At least you won't be frontin on being an SS. But again it's your car.

And Eric , don't get mad about the posts being made here. These are just opinions
