You would get use to it I would think. For the money, it's one hell of a car. I never was bothered with how they look on the road in respect to the length, it looks pretty slick in my opinion. But the length as a driver takes some time to get used to. But I'm sure you'd be right at home if you had a camper shell or something on your truck or drove a SUV. I enjoyed driving it for the brief time that I did. I rented one for a few days to see what it was like back when I was trying to find a car I like. It took me a hour or so of city driving to get use to it.

As far as cobalts go, if you have access to company rebates on parts, and have a garage at home, i'd go for the cobalt turbo over the supercharger, mainly because the superc takes away power before it gives it. Also the turbo can be adjusted a lil higher without having to worry about the engine.
ok ill start checkin out srt-4's. any other car suggestions? sti's and evo 10's are way out of my price range but i would like a car similar to those

Personally, if i wanted to build something fast, i'd go mustang, since it's much cheaper than its competitors. It's a lot easier to impose 400hps on a v6 than it is on a 2.0l 4cyls, much cheaper too.

The bad thing about SRT-4's and Cobalt SS's are FWD. The SRT-4 may keep up with a STI from a roll but go from a dead stop and that STI will murder the SRT-4.

Of course, i'm talking stock vs stock, not highly modified overpriced vs stock.
