Talking MMcGee91 / 2008 Cobalt LS / Madison Heights, MI *Updated 7/26/2011**

Hey Everyone! Time to show off my car i guess.

First of all, I got this car about 3 years ago, I'm 20, and it's my first car. No, I didn't buy the car totally by myself. I had some big help from my parents (because I got good grades all through high school lol). But I put the down payment on it. I love this car so much! Here's what I've put into it so far, don't have ALOT due to money and college and such, but I do what I can haha!

Exterior Mods:
Complete rear debadging
Side trim and GM logo removal
20% rear and 50% side tint
Self done vinyl Grand Sport Stripes
17" Black Enkei EDR9s
Blue LED license plate light
RallyArmor mudflaps
Black front bowtie
Black headlight housings (self done)

Interior Mods:
Yellow painted trim (including steering wheel)
Remote 15 color LED Glow
Blue LED dome light
Blue LED trunk light
Yellow and black Wheelskins steering wheel cover

Performance/under the hood:
K&N SRI
3A Racing muffler (yeah, i know, it's pretty rice....sounds good though.)
yellow painted Ecotec label on engine cover

Future mods?:
lowering springs
cat back exhaust































Dome light only


LED Glow only: Teal


LED Glow only: Purple


Everything on, Blue LED Glow


License plate light!



New intake!





Thanks Everyone! Hope you like! I know it's not the most amazing Cobalt on the planet, but hey! For a first car, i'm pretty proud of it. ))

Nice. I like what you have done with it so far. I would not recommend cutting the springs, though.

Thanks! About the springs, is that something that is not good to do? I have heard of it being done and I know lowering springs can be more expensive than it seems they should lol

Nice ride
About the springs...I went with dropzone.
For a little over $100 they provide a low drop and nice ride.
You might would want to go with something with a little less of a drop like sportlines considering your up north, I'm not sure what the winters are like where you are.
Good luck! First cars FTW!

Thanks! I checked both of these out and they really aren't that bad! Something I could look into once I get an internship next summer. We'll see...Probably go with something like the Eibach springlines you told me about. I'm worried about winter and speed bumps! :P
