Question Turn SS into LT

Did a brief search with no results. I need to replace my front bumper cover, and I was thinking about just going with a LT front bumper, and that got me wondering if anyone has turned their SS into an LT look-a-like? I'm going to remove the SS emblems as well. Think it's make a pretty good sleeper at stop lights...

If you pull the rear spoiler off of it, it's already a sleeper. No one really messes with me and I even have the high rise rear spoiler

I recently put my wing back on for insurance reasons. It's crazy how many people notice me now. Had some guy get out of his truck and offer to buy in the McD's drive through.

A guy offered to buy your food at McDonalds because you had a high rise wing?

I think it could be argued that the SS itself is a sleeperto most people, no need to even go LT.

Boggles my mind how people still think just removing the high rise will make the car get less attention...

Most SS owners have a loud exhaust, are lowered, and not to mention the factory body kit. The car stands out regardless of if it has a high rise or no spoiler at all.

I have had zero people try to race me with my wingless LNF and havent been pulled over once. High rise LSJ, i couldnt drive 5 mins without someone being a douche and I got pulled over probably once a month, but never had a ticket. LNF is way louder too.

In my area everyone knows about the cobalt ss turbo and supercharged. I have a supercharged g5 and thats the one everyone calls a sleeper. I was going to trade my rk sport rear lip for the ss one and guy bavked out because he wanted to stay with the "sleeper" look. Im like its an ss turbo and everyone in town already knows your car bro, and hes like yea but im still sleeper mode... its not 2008 anymore, everyone with a decent amount of car knowledge knows about the cobalt ss turbo.

Idk about that. I know plenty of car guys that never knew GM put a turbo in the cobalt. Many of them are "no replacement for displacement" guys. Depends on what scene you are into.

I've had very few ever know they came with turbos.most think it's just an appearance package, or it's got a 205hp supercharged engine in it.

​​​​​​​this was the case a few years ago here. Everyone in "racing scene" know about cobalts and how capable they are. But double clutch is right, just depends on the crowd. Older guys dont know about the turbo cobalt but know about the supercharged one, mostly old muscle car guys. Also most younger guys here dont know much about cobalts in general, because theyre all into the stance scene.
