@Andrew
I have the aftermarket projectors and have no issues. I run 55w HIDs in them. No aim issues. The halo LEDs are dim, but the ones up top are bright and strong. Don't replace them with the 10 cent ones due to the pain in the ass factor. Use a decent LED. If you are burning them out, I'd be checking the voltage getting sent to them

Also, if you open up your intake and exhaust, you'd be amazed with the fuel economy. I can grandpa drive 43mpg, or more reasonably I do about 35; usually that involves an overtake or two (very slow drivers on my daily commute)

The GT is a great bang for the buck, you get a lot of motor for little money. I paid $6100 CAD for my '07 manual w/105k kilometers. Compare that with a Cobalt SS turbo. Near identical power output, and the Mitsu still manages to undercut the "rental fodder" 'Balt on price. Granted you don't get the goodies like LSD, Brembo brakes, launch control, NLTS, etc, but still. You're getting a deal and a half with the GT.

My biggest qualm with our car over something like a cobalt is the extreme lack of turbo/supercharger support. Sure it can be done but its going to cost about as much, if not more than the price of the car, if you can even find a turbo/supercharger to work.

That's not necessarily a bad thing imo. No boost = no problems. A fully bolted GT can run with a tuned SS/TC any day. Most you'll get on a K04 turbo is 350whp before you blow it.

Plus, if you do so choose to boost it, you have nearly double the displacement, which means more potential than a little 2 liter.

SuperEvilnine is on a distinguished road
My 09 GT is a beast off the factory floor. I haven't done any mods but lower it with Eibachs Pro kit and haven't been more ecstatic!
