the LS has 15" wheels with plastic covers. The LT comes with the aluminum 16". The steering wheel controls and cruise control were options, i opted out as ive never used cruise in my life and i can reach to change the volume for $600 less.

Cobalt definitely wasnt my first choice of car to get but 2010 was the last year and they were clearing them out. I got 9 grand off. Fits what i need in a car so i couldnt pass it up

couple thousand? are you kidding me? installed everything myself, only costs are for parts. Have about $500 in it over about a year and a half and that is for everything CIA, Springs, lights, guards, and pedals. Ive been financing it for 2 years on a university students budget. Flame away but it rides nice and im happy with it.

Dude, that's all that matters. No matter what you do in life, there is always going to be haters. As long as you like it/are happy with it, then that is all the matters.

CIA, Springs, lights, guards, and pedals.
CAI - 350 BNIB from Auto Zone
Springs - ****ty springs you got from ebay? Probably a couple hundred alone.
Guards - 20-100$ depending on brand and all
Pedals - like $20 from autozone?

Well, nevermind. Springs are 160 online. (http://www.ebay.com/itm/CM-Lowering-...-/120595668116)

K&N Intake seems to be 250 from multiple sources online.

Can't find a price for mud guards. I'm sticking with my other guess for them.

Tint is like 250 for a tint that's worth a ****. Any less and you're fooling yourself. You should really drop like 400 for a great tint and do it right the first time. But, judging by his ebay brand springs, I'd say he didn't.

I didn't realize you could get springs that cheap. Can't imagine the ride quality.

So if he bought used, yeah, I can see 500. Still can't imagine spending less than a couple thousand for springs.

Who? Me?

Last parts come in tomorrow. Should only take us a few hours to get it all back together, seeing as it'll be our third time reassembling the ****ing engine bay.

Will be flashing stage 2 with this, though. So I guess there's an upside. We also did a TGV delete, painted the intake, perrin turbo inlet, etc.

I can reanswer that question Friday

Umm, well, the coil packs had a really fault connection. Had to replace the connection to them. The TGVs were ****ed so we did a DIY TGV delete. And, well, that was really the two issues. We had three CELs, 2 TGV, an O2 and a misfire. Our finds explain the symptoms. If we still have a CEL after this then we're going to be so lost.

Yeah let's hope so.

My evap valve isn't dead. I can feel it clicking when the car is on, so I'm guessing that's not the issue. Found a potential vacuum leak but don't know how to repair it besides epoxy/JB weld/RTV.
