Well, on monday I went and picked up my metallic blue Cobalt SS. Its AMAZING. Moving up from a '97 cavalier to a '05 cobalt is outstanding. I don't have any pictures right now, but I'm sure you've all seen them anyway.

Apparently I'm the first person in the area to get one (Dayton, OH) and mine even came in before the owner of Lang's' (the chevy dealer) did.

I'm not pushing it too hard because I want the engine to break in a little or I'd give you some times.

Oo la la. Wow. This is probably going to be a major praise of the car, but this is coming from a kid who previously owned a '97 cavalier so there is a major difference :).

I'm attempting to keep my antics under control for the first 500 miles for the break in, but its so difficult! The thing handles so well, I can take 90 degree turns above 35mph. The brakes are amazing as well, but I guess thats just due to the 4-wheel discs, compared to my cavalier that just had front disc brakes.

I often find myself driving at around 70, thinking its 40 because the car gives the feign appearance that I'm not doing 30 over the speed limit. It has some definite potential for when I pull up next to some kid that wants to race.

The interior is stunning. I feel like I'm driving my friend's parent's 300C, its extremely comfortable and very sporty (you've all seen the pictures). The sound system is very good for a stock system. I believe that a sub upgrade with an amp would be the only thing I would change about it. I'm pretty much an audiophile. The system has amazingly clear highs along tight lows, but not quite as loud of lows as I like. The stock radio doesn't have all the extras that my panosonic head unit had on the cavalier, like high and low pass filtering, just the basic bass and treble dB increasing. Does anyone know about changing out the radio, or piggy-backing an aftermarket radio to this one?

Overall I'm really impressed. If there is any specific questions I can address them.

Pictures :)


Angle shot. I'm dressed up because I'm about ready to leave for prom.


Front. I think I'm talking to a nieghbor.


Another frontal shot. I'm not too sure why it looks like I'm skipping around the car, but I don't recall doing so.


The side shot.


And finally, the most important part.

Sorry if I look retarded in all the pictures, its mainly because I am :)

that blue is pretty nice. Anyone else notice that the front looks like a Civic, and the back looks like an '04 cavalier?

I dont think so. The headlights are much larger than a Civics and the Cavy had that bar all the way across the back and the Cobalt only has Quad jewel tails.

Well the quad "jewel" tails is just historic of Chevy, i.e. Vette, Impalas, some (if not all) Chevelles had quad tails in their chrome bumpers, and now the Cobalt.
