You wanna get him interested in his cobalt? Get him on the forum and let him browse the showoff section...
I gave him the password and login name for this site. He will be looking more once he gets his license. ( he still needs to pass my skills test before I will let him get it.) I have been taking him out almost everyday since we got it so he can get used to driving it.
He see's a lot of the cool cars on here and wants to MOD his. HE will need to pay for that. Hate to be a buzz kill for him but you guys spend some BIG money on the MODs. His first official mod was a pair of fuzzy dice and a air frshener under the seat
I did see a thread on here "under $100 dollar MODS", that will be more his speed for a bit.
Question, How do the mods effect resale or trade in value? I am sure a dealer would kill you on them but if you sold to another kid, maybe get your money back that you spent?
Thank you for the reply,

Is it a 2 door or 4 door?
Cuz the 2 doors have a similar look to the Corvette lights.
Tell him if he puts a Supercharger on it he can beet corvettes.
With more mods of course Haha.

His (16 year old, boy) cobalt is a sedan.
I fix houses not cars so most of the mods we do together will be cosmetic. I can do the basic stuff, I put new rotors and pads on the front for him, I lost his attention after the first wheel.
I showed him how to check fluids ect.. He will be doing the oil changes after I show him that in 2K miles.
I'll help him on the stereo upgrade, buying the shorty antenna tonight for him (since I broke the OEM trying to get it off. Replaced the bracket today)
I will spend some time with him on the $100 dollar mod thread, see what he likes.
Thank you for the reply and suggestions,
