Well, I'm the new owner of a Black 2006 SS supercharged, Yellow Recaros and sunroof... currently with 60kms on it, so I decided to sign up here and say hello... I've already noticed a flaw in the passenger side yellow armrest, it's seperating from the door brace, I'll be sure to get that fixed right away! ;)

Pics to come!

Welcome to the site and the Cobalt family :D. As for the armrest I'd like to also welcome you to the family of "my material is peeling away on the passenger side door from the door handle" lol :). It was a problem on the '05 models and apparently still is on the '06...it's a fairly easy fix nothing big involved.

Where in Canada are you btw...I'm in London,ON.

I'm possibly wrong, Yellow and black attack... they say SS on them.

I live just west of Edmonton, but was born in Ont. and The Leafs are my Hockey team! :D

The Recardo seats actually say recardo on them...if your seats say SS only they are the base model seats

Thanks for setting me straight... I might just stretch the car's legs and take a spin to Calgary this Weekend, might see you around! ;)

Any break-in tips other than the obvious that anyone want to share?

Beat her up. Not literally, you don't have the dent resistant panels that the Redline has. But be sure to get on it in 2nd and 3rd gear. It'll help the rings seal and give your engine longer life and more power. Highway driving isn't exactly the best for breaking in a motor, but if you do some good 3rd gear pulls to redline and then slow back down (not using the brakes, that's very important) then that should help. Just make sure to give a few pulls to redline in 2nd and 3rd. 1st gear pulls aren't going to help much because they don't last long enough. They are fun though. Enjoy your new toy.

Nice looking car...I really like the black when it's clean and shining...you might want to get that 43 off of your rim though lol :D. Again congrats on the new ride...as for breaking it in it's really not as huge of an issue anymore as it used to be (as Garbs pointed out to me when I asked about this on my LS :) ) so pretty much drive it like you want to. He's right in that highway driving is not the best way to break-in a vehicle, the reason they recommend you do NOT drive at constant RPMs all the time is typically in case you have a problem with lubrication as certain RPMs and you just happen to be driving in that range for a long period of time :).

Basically your manual lays out a couple things you shouldn't do so other than these everything else is fair game :D. I can't remember exactly what page it's on...I went the route of waiting until nearly 5000km before finally opening up my LS and I don't seem to be having any problems with the car whatsoever.

leafy,
Your boost will most likely be lower than the norm (80 Kpa) for the first couple thousand KM, don't worry it will come back up after your engine breaks in a bit, mine took about 3500 km before showing 80 kpa. Let me know if your heading down to calgary, I know some people with acuras and hondas we can beat up on (local drag) :rolleyes: :D
take it easy

Hey can someone set me straight, are they still selling the different color interiors on the SS to match the exterior like they did in 2005? My 2006 SS/SC has all black interior with black leather and SS stitched on them.

Yes you can, it goes like so....

On the black and silver SS's you could order any color insert you wanted, whether it be red,blue,yellow, or black. Red cars only get red or black interiors, blue cars only get blue or black interiors, and yellow only gets yellow or black interiors. Orange only comes in the black interior. Also to add the only way to get the G85 (performence package) is to order it with the black interior.
