Exclamation Hello (GM) World, from Michigan

Just purchased a Black 2006 Cobalt Coupe MT with zero options from its original owner. It is replacing a 98 2g eclipse with 183k.
This is my first GM. Since my old man is a powertrain engineer at Chrysler I will admit to being bias. I have been very impressed so far with my first Chevy!

The car is bone stock with zero exterior body rust and only a little underbody rust. My first plan is to have it ziebarted because I am too lazy to do it myself.
The next step will be a 4th gen mini h1 retrofit with 4300k's. I was running tsx-r's in my 2g and miss the sharp cutoff and white light. No, I will not be posting a new thread asking how it is done since there are 1,000+ out there.

I plan to keep the engine stock until I finish my ME undergrad next December... then the sky is the limit.
My pet peeves are cell phone drivers, drivers who use any lane but the right most as a cruising lane, and drivers who cannot maintain a speed.

I am on xceedspeed using the same user name if you are in the Detroit area.

Safe travels everyone!

OH! of the car

Replacing this one

4300k TSX-r

Its about 1.5' off of the ground at the tallest point from a distance of 30 yards. I like my driver cutoff lower than OEM spec.
