I am new to this site. ITS AWESOME!

anyways i have 08 cobalt ls!! Her name is smurfette. She is a blue flash special edition color! She is my Baby!!!!

i wanna start changing her a bit of a make over:
already tinted her windows && got her some 18"s flat black & blue loveee!!
&& a system except i think ima upgrade my subs SOON! thats it so farrr!!

I want to lower her good idea or not ??
& i wanna paint her calipers before i put her wheels back on for the summer BUT what color ? i was think same color of the car & it would match the rims but my friends say get a color on the calipers that would stand out like hot pink or red ? BUT i was thinking a purple color cuz when my cars in the sun it looks purple!! WHAT color you think b awesomeness?

&& i wanna kno how can i make her faster ?
&& i want a ss spolier (shoulda jus bought a SS damn it =( )
&& i wanna make my exhust make that noise but how ?

&& im really car dumb but i can drive it like a proofessanalllll!!! sooo HELP!

Hi. Welcome to the forum! I would paint the calipers to match the car for the most part, but its up to you. There's plenty of articles here on all you can do for go fast happy parts, exhaust, etc... But, if you have specific questions, just ask them in the forum sections they belong in, and you'll get plenty of answers. =) And, Pics??? Show that tint and them wheels off!

Welcome to the Forum!

Yes lower the car

Color Match the calipers

try the Classifies section of are forum if you want a SS highrise wing

Aftermarket exhaust [I recommend magnaflow]

My question - Is your car a manual?

welcome

my car is BFM too... currently, my calipers/drums are gunmetal... but so are my rims & some interior trim. I have 4 cans of BFM paint on the way... IF i have some left over... i MIGHT color match my calipers... but i kinda like the gumnetal look i got goin on... i dont want my car to look girly, but still a girl's car. if that makes sence. haha
eh either way, dont do red, that would look terrible against the BFM... pink/purple wouldnt be too bad... i wouldnt ever do it tho.......lol

Wonderful intro first of all. Very detailed and descriptive lol
Yes you should lower it to get rid of that nasty wheel gap.
Dont get an SS spoiler if you have a base model [LS, LT]
For the noise, get a Magnaflow Muffler. Or if you want some performace, get a whole cat-back exhaust set up. Also, Id start off with an intake to get your performance mods started.

oh and the calipers, get match them with the color of your car, thatll look b!tchin
