'08 LS Coupe

New to the cobalt world. I have been a Subaru guy in an 05 WRX since I got my license, found it was time to move on to something different. I know mildly how to mod and work on my cars myself looking to learn some more as I go along. Only one picture so far.

Won't be as good in snow as a WRX but a Cobalt sounds like it's firing on all 4 and more comfortable. Oh yeah much better on gas. Welcome!

Also a lot cheaper to fix a rear wheel on a Cobalt, I mean a lot....

Yeah I needed something a little better on gas and less expensive upkeep. After a few mods and tuning on my WRX was at nearly twice the price that this cost me. And as for the snow I have an older '98 Impreza L I will be using for those days I need to have a little fun, it also seconds as a rally-x car so I wil get some fun out without killing my DD.

They actually are. The individual that owned the car prior was a bit of a ricer. He had tints all around and smoked lights and such. It took a bit to bring her back to life. I have not decided what wheels I want to put on it yet. I have lots of research to do first. Any recommendations are greatly appreciated.
