2008 cobalt LT




Bought her in January of 2010 purely as a daily driver, but got the modding bug after I started noticing a million base cobalt sedans everywhere on the island and they were all rentals. I had to stand out a little from the crowd. I was fairly content with some basic mods, drop springs, catback, painted head lights, but then I wanted to get into SCCA Autocross so I started modding my car to get geared up for racing! Unfortunately towards the end of my first season of racing I had a fire in my engine bay that shut my car down for a few months basically ending my budding racing career :( Well I rebuilt her with a few upgrades, most notably the SS front bumper, SSTC wheels, and Custom Blue paint. It was around this time that I got featured in StreetPulse magazine, which was HUGE for me! After the StreetPulse feature I was picked up by Fresh2Death Detailing, a local car detailing company, to help represent them at the local car shows. That has been where I've been for the last couple years until this last May, when I was rear ended by some kids on the freeway. As I usually do, i turned lemons into lemonade and used the insurance money to upgrade the rear bumper and Sideskirts. Finally I have upgraded from my rubbish Stance coilovers with some BC coilovers and I plan on getting back into AutoCross.

I have a tsudo cat back and a set of sportlines sitting in my living room right now and a K/N intake on the way :)
Honestly, that's about all I plan for performance mods for now.

Also I'm debating whether to paint that grey crap black or should I try to color match? Black would be easiest and prolly cheaper, and I honestly don't know if color matching would actually look better. Any opinions?
