    Engine is a 2.0 ECOTEC Turbo with 147kW, 6 Speed Manual, Continuous Dampening Control Suspension.

    Only changed doen so far is the tinted windows, removal of the V grille with Holden badge and the rear Holden badge, and replaced with the Opel Badges and grille. I also replaced the long "bee sting" antenna with a "stubby" one

    I'm not a big fan of tuners or subcompact cars, but this thing looks sweet!!

    Good choice on color, red seems to bring out the car a lot.

    How come it still has the Opel badges on it if it's a Holden?

    I hate you with a passion, JJ, I am very jealous, I LOVE the SRi Turbos, They are increadable looking, I want one BAD, hopefully the Turbo Cobalt will fulfill my needs in a year or two. Congrats on the car man!!!

    Wow! Nice looking car! I'm too old to want to drive a 3 door hatch, but I want this one. I'm sure it'll be priced outta my range...most everything is.

    On another note, it's just a better looking one of these...heavy emphasis on better looking

    If there are no stupid questions, then what kind of questions do stupid people ask? Do they get smart just in time to ask questions?
