How to identify if has Performance package?

Hey .. I'm looking at buying a used '05 ss s/c, and was wondering about the optional Performance Package (incl Recaro Seats, Limited Slip Differential).. which is I understand the LSD is definately reccommended, based on reviews.

How can I quickly identify if this used Cobalt that I'm checking out has the performance package of not?

Are the two-tone seats the Recaro Seats - or are these only in grey w/black leather trim?

Better support on seats would be great, but I'm really looking for the limited-slip diff. Thanks for your help.

yep, Recaro is the name of the illegal immigrant that does the upholstery for GMPP. if it says "JOSE", it's got the interior but no lsd.

It is also possible someone traded out the seats for the regular seats due to fitment issues for themselves. To be 100% sure, pullup the carpet in the trunk and look at the sticker on the left side. It has a list of the options included on the car., Look for the code G85. Then you'll know 100% that you have the LSD.

Or, if your absolutly not sure, call a dealership and ask them to run the VIN code and ask if the G85 option, or LSD was installed on the car.
