    how does the Cobalt SS look w/o the wing..

    Thinking about buying one of these, I had a blast test driving it yesterday but that wing is hideous. Anyone have pictures of the SS either with a wing-delete or with the smaller wing from the base coupe on it?

    Probably would have bought it on the spot yesterday except that 2nd had something seriously wrong with it, kept popping out of gear.

    How does it look with a regular wing? Exactly like a standard Cobalt coupe.

    The wing kinda bothers me too, so I'd be interested in seeing how it looks w/o it.

    It's RIGHT smack in the middle of your rearward vision. It blocks nearly everything. If it was higher or lower it wouldn't be a problem, but as it is, it's in the worst spot.

    If you get one make shore it has a limited slip differential. With out it, it will not perform. The limited slip differential is part of the performance package that includes Recaro front bucket seats, so if the car doesn’t have the seats don’t buy it.


    Do not buy one without a limited slip diff.

    Also the front air [email protected] is different and the side skirts are a bit different.
