new guy

Hi, I just bought an 09 Cobalt coupe LS (Red) with the 5 speed manual and XFE package. I traded in the old s-10 Blazer on the "Cash for Clunkers" program. I am an employee at a Chevy dealer so I also got my employee discount and some other rebates going on at the time. I ended up getting my car for half price after everything was said and done. I have only had it for a couple days now and I am very happy so far. I already de-badged it and am going to order new taillights and headlights for it. I would also like to get some 17" rims and the GM performance exhaust along with some window tint. I don't know how much money I want to put into it though because I have an actual project vehicle that I'm working on. decisions decisions... Oh well, I think I've blabbed enough for now, this looks like a good forum to be part of.

Brian.

I'm not worried about the XFE mileage. I just went from 18 mpg to 30+ lol. I could care less if I lose a few MPG after that jump. Plus I live in MN so I would probably run the stock rims and tires in the winter to keep the salt off the good rims.

thanks for the welcomes.

welcome and congrats on the new purchase. As for how much you spend, eh, no one really plans to have a limit set. I was surprised when I added everything I had done together and saw what I am at now. I do feel better knowing I saved a good amount on some of the stuff thanks to hook ups.

Good luck with the new ride, get some pics up when you can!
