Have you even priced insurance or anything related to a VW or an Audi?

lul, hope you've got deep pockets when something goes wrong.

^agree. The balt is one of the most inexpensive (parts/insurance/etc) that can have some serious power. I agree it would be nice to have something else (Evo for me in 5 years) but right now it's just not realistic. Maybe it is for you! Have you considered boosting? That would keep you busy for a while!

I didn't see the whole trade part either...hope you got quite a bit in cash in hand, or the person you're trading to is blind, lol.

Also, 5 Series Audi didn't hit stateside until '08 at the earliest and according to my value calc. at my bank, the A5 with average mileage (60k~) is still sitting around 28-30k, while the GTi being the cheaper one around 15-17k.

What's a LS/LT fully loaded Cobalt Coupe go for?

No where near...totally different price bracket.

its only as boring as you make it, did you only do appearance upgrades? go turboozz or SC whichever floats your boat.

Call VW dealer and ask how much for a GTi brake job, if that don't change your mind you must have won the lottery.

I'd love to boost, but I don't see a point since I'm an auto:/
There's your problem. You are bored because you don't have a stick not the fact you own a cobalt!

That's exactly it. And sc autos are fast yea, but they aren't fun to drive. So I don't see a point in sc or tc my auto when I could get a manual sometime then do all that an still have fun driving it

I still love mine. Its great for the reasons i bought it. Fwd for winter, good fuel economy, good looking car, and a fun, reliable daily driver. I would love to get a rwd car to turn into a project that would be nimble and fast. But the ones i like are a lil too expensive for me right now. Gonna keep enjoying the old LS till i can afford/find a decent project.

I've been in an itch for the past year due to various leak fixes and now a crackling audio even when radio's off. Thinking If I did trade for a 4cyl Turbo, V6 or V8 vehicle and next thing you know, bigger payments (starting over loan interests), bigger insurance rate and $5/gallon gas creeping up.

Those, mechanical reliability, cheap maintainence, payments and insurance is what gets me to try and scratch the itch off. Cobalts are reliable powertrainwise, just have exterior/interior issues.
