New to the Cobalts - Any Ideas??

Just bought a 2008 Chevy Cobalt LT sedan, blue . Trying to find some cheap and easy ways to fix up the interior to make it fit my personality more (it's pretty bland right now).

I'm pretty much new to the whole car thing (been driving an SUV for the past 4 years, never did much with it). I've been told to switch out the dome light/interior lights with LEDs and to find a dash kit, however, I can't seem to find one for my model.

Any suggestions on how to spruce it up a bit?

Welcome, hopefully a Laser Blue Metallic? For the interior trim, theres how to's for painting your dash trim/you can sticker bomb it/or wrap it in carbon fiber vinyl's. For lighting you can replace the bulbs with LEDs/get an LED conversion kit for your gauges/Upgrade to SS gauges, also you could do footwell LEDs or neons if youre into that. You can also go with an aftermarket shift knob if you are automatic, or a short shifter and or knob for a manual. For your seats you can get covers or buy some black LT seats or even some leather SS seats. Theres endless possibilities, i could go on..... But while youre at it if you are looking for some cheap mods theres a thread on the site for Mods less than 100 dollars

Black out the inside if it's not already, it will give it that edge.
