Hi Guys,

I checked out an SS yesterday for the first time. I was pretty impressed. I currently drive an Audi A4 1.8T (Quattro, 6MT). I was wondering what you guys had before your SS, and how you think your SS compares?

I have a '98 GTi VR6 that's for sale right now. Simply, the Cobalt blows it away in terms of performance, comfort, and well, I really dig the look. I've been autocrossing for the last 4 years and after racing our Saturn Ion Red Line then I had no doubt what GM vehicle I would buy. The delta cars are amazing and the handling is just silly.

That's quite a change, no?

Did it feel strange going from a big V8/RWD to a small compact FWD/I4?
not really, i was tired of the TA and it had 130k on it. It was big and boatish, i like this car much better. I just wish it was as fast as the TA. Maybe after some parts come out i can get close.

Had a 96 Firebird V6 - 200 horse - 225 torque and the SS blows it away! I think it's because the SS is lighter and blown.
