What Do You Think

So I want to jazz up my cobalt..like make it look sweeter and stuff. i feel like it looks like a grandma car. i just put new rims on it, and it has tinted windows. Idk what else I could do. I have to save up money..I was thinking headlights..maybe tint the taillights. I'm gonna put a double din touchscreen radio in it too. Anyone have any suggestions on what to do? I really want a body kit but those are expensive and I live in pothole city.

And if anyone knows of good double din touchscreen radios for a reasonable price? or it anyone wants to sell me one. Git at me.

thanks

Body kits...yuck.

Pioneer probably for the head unit.

Painting the headlight housings is always an option, Niteshade tails/side markers, lowering springs, paint interior trim, shift boot, LED dome, trunk and license plate lights, etc.

Instead of just doing tinted tail lights, go with LED tail lights. They definetely stand out.

And go with a cold air intake, and a full exhaust system. That will make it sound alot better when driving. Painting the front bowtie is a very inexpensive and easy mod that changes the look. Lowering springs. HIDS. Halo Headlights.

If your into it, go with stripes. I installed stripes on mine and love it. My car stands out in a crowd. There are a ton of mods you can do. It all just depends on what look you are truly going for, and how much you want to spend.

A pink bowtie, that is definetely unique. And gauges are a nice touch, and very usefull. And I don't think you have to worry about people thinking you street race. I don't know of anyone who races a stock 2.2l. Lol
