    Supercharged 4-cyl putting out 205 ponies.
    They sound nice - I like the whine, and they look DAMN good in blue and black. I'd prolly be more partial to getting blue, since black is a bitch to keep clean.

    These fuckers are CHEAP (I didn't even think about the Cobalt - like an 05 SS with about 20k on it goes for like high $14s), and I would think that they are easily moddable (engine), no?

    light years better than the Cavalier that it replaced, the engine and driveline are rock solide. Subsystems have had some minor problems here and there, but overall it's a good car with decent reliability.

    The MS3 is too fucking expensive. I'm trying to cut back on monthly expenses - getting rid of my SUV will help because I will have a cheaper note, and I won't have to feed that bitch with fuel every other day.

    The SS is a 4-banged with some balls. I can still act a damn fool, while being fuel efficient. The supercharged version is only available in manual. I am very partial to automatics, but I think I'll brush up on my stick driving skills for this one...

    obviously he is looking for speed, so this is kind of out of the question, but I'd honestly reccomend the Scion TC. It's a bit of a dog, but it will last for fucking ever with minimal problems, and it might even be cheaper than the cobalt ss, but obviously you'd be trading a little performance.
