Hi! I dont own a Cobalt but Im looking and wanting one badly. Im not new to the car scene but new to "tuner" or front wheel driven cars I guess you could say.

Ive owned and modified F-bodies for many years. Love my Z28's and still own one, but again... Im looking in the direction of the Cobalt SS Supercharged

Questions:

1. Anyone know what rebates are available for these cars right now?
2. What is the single most (best) mod for this car?
3. Pros and cons about the Cobalt SS supercharged

1. Sorry can't help you there.
2. Turbo
3. 3rd quickest sport compact in the price segment *currently*, good GM warranty(not that you care:D ), crappy stock clutch and axles, nice interior and sound system, great handling for FWD, quality issues, sharp looking car.

Honestly if I didn't buy my STI, I would have bought an SS/SC. NOW though I would almost definently go with the Mazdaspeed 3.

I think I would, too. In retrospect, I wish I had something with four doors. It's got more power, but with the added weight, it's about the same acceleration time as an SS/SC. I don't know whether or not it handles well. It's also a lot more refined; you can get xenon lights and a nav system on it, fer crying out loud!

I think they have dipped into 13.7s already stock, not 100% sure though. I like them a lot.

Yea, I keep getting them mixed up for whatever reason.
Ok i test drove a Mazdaspeed3 for almost 1 1/2 hours. It was an awesome car to say the least but when i left the dealership after trying to make an unsuccessful trade. They actually done me a favor i like my cobalt alot better. It had plenty of torque but ran out of steam quickly (which i heard was solved by a cold air) in the upper revs but you better hold on from 3000-5800. The only thing that killed it was that it was heavy and the hatch like body killed it in the corners but for a flat out everyday car with awesome potential it is #1. Wasey I truly dont know what you are smoking but the Speed3 and SS/SC stock for stock the mazda goes 0-60 faster but we beat them by .1 in the quarter so they are very close. It would def put up a fight in a roll or dig and may beat the ss/sc. To answer the first post Pros for the SS/SC: great power, good sound, killer handling, and factory backed performance upgrades. Cons: Quality issues, WHEEL HOP.

Speed3 Pros: Best tq in the class, traction control, xenon headlights, overall fit and finish

Cons: very short ratioed six speed, brakes are only 1 piston calipers! (wtf) so the brakes hold good for the first few stops but after that not so good, weight

Magazine racing FTL!:rolleyes:

I know for a fact quite a few of the MS3s have ran 13.8s already BONE STOCK, maybe 13.7s not for sure. With TBE and tune they are picking up like 50-70+whp. What are you smoking?? The MS3 outhandles the SS/SC too. Basically MS3>>>SS/SC in every objective way.

When did I say TBE and tune was stock?????:confused:

So the skidpad equals the end all of handling???? Where did you get those numbers from also??? For someone that isn't basing anything off of magazines you sure are quoting a lot of numbers.:confused:

Can you please just never talk, so I can stop PWNING you every single time you post??? I am starting to feel kind of bad, like a kid with a magnifying glass and you'RE the ant. Poor little stupid ant.

I quoted numbers from the factories. And no how people you know let them demo a car like that at a track. The salesman was very courteous and actually told me to drive the way i want to so I took it down a good mountain road and I felt very unsure of how much to pit into the car i guess you have to get over the rolling of the hatch to get used to it. I took my car down the same road and def. felt more sure of the capabilities. I didn't say it had the best handling in my original post. But for everyday driving it has just about everything right except the brakes they weren't as firm as the SS/SC. I liked the clutch better it felt weird at first but it didn't catch all at once like the SS/SC so yes Ive driven one. It does NOT handle better than the SS/SC. Hell the SS/SC handles just as good as that Wonderful piece of JDM machinery in your driveway.

Yeah, you're a fucking jackass i wish you would get banned for your obscene and immature behavior. you just hate when someone has an informative post i was commenting on my own experience of both cars. Have you driven these two cars? But no you cant leave your nose out of something. Frankly i would feel ripped off if i just saw a car bone stock and $10,000 less run with in a .1 in the 1/4 as your car. Haha so can you please go show your ass somewhere else please.

You quoted factory numbers, yeah that is a whole lot better than magazine racing.:rolleyes:

Yes I have driven both cars and I drove an SS/SC and Redline on an autocross course.

Frankly you should feel stupid, but you are so oblivious to your retardation that you don't. Very sad situation you are in.

Are you saying there are no cars better than the Cobalt???

You don't even have a driver's license. You should be banned for THINKing you know ANYTHING.

I act like a "7 year old" because the retards (you are one of them) telling me I am wrong HAVE NO CLUE AS TO WHAT THE HELL THEY ARE BABBLING ABOUT.

I also know more about the Cobalts than 90+% of the owners.

That is why I asked.

I haven't seen you know anything, besides how to run your mouth like a little bitch.

I know more about the Cobalt than you.

And the guys that "respect you" just don't want to hurt your feelers, cause they know you are a little bitch too.
