Hey all. Just joined the site so I figured I should start a showoff thread. As of now there are no mods at all on my Cobalt. I am just getting started. Here is what I plan to do: 8000K HID headlights, K&N Cold Air Intake( Typhoon ), Shorty Antenna, Debadge trunk, Magnaflow or flowmaster exhaust, All around tinting( Legal ), 1 inch drop. As of today March 26,2010 I have the HID's on the way and the K&N intake on the way. Will most likely be picking up an MPX shorty in a week or so.

If anyone has suggestions or comments please let me know, I will most likely be switching things up as I go, so if you think that their is something better or you have experience with something please let me know.

Pics will be up tomorrow or Sunday. Gotta work all day tomorrow. Basically look up 2005 Gold Sedan and that's it. I will get pics up though. Ya I live about 30 min from Stillwater. I used to play them in sports all the time.

Was looking around online today and I saw a bunch of people using the Eibach Sportline lowering kit. Thinking of getting them, not soon though maybe a month or 2. Says you can lower anywere from 1.5-2 inches. Is this a good idea or not to lower it 2 inches? I live in upstate NY where we get plenty of snow. Anyone live in a snowy area with a lowered car? If so how does it do?

Also tomorrow I will HoPEFULLY be detrimming the exterior molding and debadging the trunk. Then hopefully painting the front bowtie, either gloss or flat black

well I took pictures today of my car, but when I went to take them off my Camera, I didn't have the right wire. Gotta go get it tomorrow. Ha.

Did some work today though. De-badged the trunk, and took the trim off the side doors.

Got the K&N intake the other day and installed it. Love it, gives my car a nice sound around 4000RPM. I will get some pictures up shortly. Didn't get the lights DDM tuning was having issue getting the lights so I cancelled my order.

i think your the first tan colored balt on this site
am i right? welcome
not to be mean, but when I went looking for a cobalt when they asked what color do you want, I said anything but rental car gold. lol

I just felt soooo old behind the wheel of it.

However, I am looking forward to what a modded one looks like. Good luck, and progress is good so far.

Hey I live in Rotterdam.

And I feel the same exact way. My friends always bust on me and tell me I'm driving a Grandma Gold car. But at the same time there driving 1996 Lumina's that are beat to Sh&*. Ha. Haven't been on here in a while been busy with school. I'm going to Wal Mart right now to get some paint for my front bow tie. Typhoon Intake is installed I will get pictures of it when I get back along with the bowtie.
