Nice car, Got me a sedan too. Did you take the side moldings off the car yourself?

Oh yea, forgot to add that to the list.

Pulled those off when I debadged. Had to use this bug remover stuff to get leftover glue type residue off. You can sort of see where they used to be, but washing followed with a decent coat of wax makes them essentially invisible.

Thanks man. The cupholders are painted blue, but with the black insert in, you normally just see the top ring so it matches the ring around the shifter and that small amount of blue around my b&m shiftplus.

I have Blue LEDs installed with a switch mounted by the e-brake, so the blue matches that a little.

I normally just go for the plain black ones, but the cloth type ones just wear through way too quick. This is the first pair of rubber type ones Im trying...still havent trimmed them to fit though because I havent decided how much I like them.

hey man, how well is the filter protected against water? I want to go with a cai, but the rain here is horrible, but I was looking at my car today and noticed that the filter looks like it would be completely protected from water.

Ive never had an issue, but rain isnt a big problem here really. haha. You can buy a "hydroshield" for you injen and maybe other cai's as well though. Theyre supposed to help avoid water problems without hurting performance too much. I dont have one myself though.

Thanks man. Not too many of us "cashmere metallic" cobalts rolling around...or at least not too many that arent run down rental cars. haha

Just added a couple pics for my new wideband and oil pressure gauges. not hooked up totally yet, so the readings arent accurate...I dont have 100+psi of oil pressure.

Gauges look good! Like the first look at your car is oh how cute mom put an exhaust on her car. But then it just blows by you. Gah i love it.

Oh and btw. Shorty antenna ;)
