Gonna help my friend move tomorrow so no naps here either. At least with the 1.8 there is no worry on intake or turbo issues.

Most likely I will not get a nap. It is a hope. I got 3 kids (5,4, and 1) they never let me, but I still try.

Totally different than the cobalt. It's a big fat girl that's quiet, and rides like a big luxury sedan. Magnetic shocks in sport mode help it out some. It's really weird to lay into it and basically hook up unlike the cobalt that was spin city. It's quick 0-60 but doesn't have the raw acceleration that the cobalt had in 3rd gear. It will improve a bunch with a tune. It's quiet and has a nice modern feel. The interior is comfy and I really like it. Just a much different car than I'm used to.
