Its kind of on the expensive side, no?

And its kind of bland in my opinion. Looks very stock to me.
Yeah it does look stockish. Not worth the $ in my opinion.

It doesn't have a front grill at all. And you wanna pay 1,000+ for one body kit? lol.

Well to each its own. Its not bad, just not my cup of tea. And I don't like the rims on the one in the picture.

I'll eventually be getting parts from all of them

Front: Initial D

Side: BC2

Rear: Versus Widebody

Fender: Cobalt Addiction Rear Widebody fenders and versus fornt fender.

I wish someone would come out with a smooth lip kit to compete with the dealers OEM SS kit. I don't like how the RKsport is so big and low to the ground.

I like the grip tuning one cause it is stock-ish, i have a base cobalt and i want to make it look more sporty, also i don't think the grip kit is fiber glass that is why it is expensive (i am not sure on this though). The grip kit is clean and simple!

Here is a body kit that's out for the Pontiac G5 which is basically a Cobalt.

I think it might fit, I don't see why not.

Yeah I think you should add it.

I just hate RKSPORT's persistence in the dual exhaust. NO! BAD RK! BAD! lol

Yeah, cool thing about this kit is it doesn't have a specific dual exhaust cut-out.
So it will look great single or dual exhaust. That's a plus.

I'm going to add it untill I hear it doesn't fit.

Edit: It has been added.

The Rksport body kit won't be seen supposively until early 2007. I think it's the cleanest looking kit for the Cobalt yet. Hopefully people can read these forums and realize that not all cobalt owners want a Wild, out there body kit. A lot of us like the smooth clean stock look, but still being unique.

Question, what does everyone think of that body kit? Its kinda, bleh to me, not knocking it, just wondering what people think.

Here are the two links for them:

https://www.cobaltss.net/forums/show...ght=Bomber+kit

http://www.importtrenz.com/v3/catalog/home.php?cat=1652

You'll also notice the "JP Vizage" body kit as well.

I like that JSP front lip the best. The one I found like protudes from the bumper at an angle. I don't like it personally, but I figured I would post it anyways

By the look of the pictures, it would seem the new Grip Tuning front facia for the Chevy Cobalt is able to accommodate the factory fog light installation. Is this correct?

Geoff,

Thanks for your interest in GRIP Tuning's products. The GRIP Cobalt front fascia does not directly accomodate factory headlights. However, the openings are large enough so that if you wanted to fabricate a small bracket, you could make them fit.
