I absolutely hate the redline's interior. POS. Why are the gauges in the center??? They're NOT for the passenger to read.

that's why they're not centered towards the passenger...

Actually, the Redline was better than the SS in most, if not all the categories, and only 1/100th of a second off the SRT ACR in the autox...

I think this is the 2nd or 3rd time I've seen the SS come up just a bit short of us...

It really is a driver's race though. The only difference in the two cars is the size of the wheels. Which is enough to cost it all those tenths and hundreths in the categories they tested. Throw the Redline wheels on it and I bet it's the same.

Don't lump it until you try it. Many like it after driving with it for even a few minutes. The reality is, it's more than a gimmick - it works. I personally miss it when driving something else. Saturn's only real screw up in the IP was putting the TACH on the RH side instead of the left! Fortunately the COMP PACKAGE includes an RPM adjustable ladder tach/shift light, works awesome!

It's that way in a few other cars too... Scion has no problems selling center mounted IPs at all.

Other than that, it's the same quality, well except for our standard Recaros! The carpet, panels, trim, etc... was all made at the same place...

I read somewhere that the redline is a tenth of a second faster so I voted on the redline but i'm the SS fan and I hope somehow the cobalt shows it up, maybe i'll find one to race I know there's a silver one around where I live.

We're driving the same car. None of the differences that people measure can be attributed to much beyond a few lbs of weight, and a few lbs in tire mass. Thats it. We shouldn't worry about showing each other up, until we're showing up everyone else. We can do nothing but help each other. Hell, we Redliners have been trying to tune this car for a couple years now. We've been through a few successes and failures. We have much info already. You guys will help our aftermarket, which is something all 4,200 of us cannot do with a Saturn. It takes a Chevy apparently.

The mags say that the Redline is a LITTLE faster in most ways, but then proceed to call it an ill concived POS. Makes total sense to me.

It doesn't matter if the Redline is faster than the Cobalt... it matter if MY car is faster than YOUR car. If anything.
