Sorry to hear that you have to sell. I know you have a lot invested in the car...can see that from all your changes you posted in pictures, but I really don't think you'll be able to get much more than asking price. I would ask $13,500 or $14,000 tops. Unless you find someone that really wants a base Cobalt for the price of a nice SS/SC or an 08 SS/TC, you'll have it listed for a while. Even the price I posted is quite high, but it would get more interest at that price. Modifying cars doesn't add value except to a VERY select number of buyers.

I'm not trying to bash at all, just being realistic. You just have to realize that the resale isn't going to be there at all.

Also, I noticed you use 93 in there. I'm sorry, but there is no benefit to it. You've just been wasting money there. These cars are factory tuned on 87 and they don't see any gains in performance or economy by using a higher octane fuel. Unless you get a tune, it's going to be pointless and could actually cause worse performance.

my askin price was kinda just throwin a number out there i appreciate the in put tho... and the reason i used 93 is cuz it help's keep the valve's clean from build up as opposed to 93....

sorry to hear that man, youve obviously put a lot of time and money into your car! but i understand, times are tough. hope you get all you can out of it!
you might make more parting out, and selling as a run of the mill cobalt? idk though, pretty high amount owed still.
GOOD LUCK!
