I would consult the dealer about it before you do anything more. There is mild rubbing compound available at most automotive stores that removes fine scratches, but I am not sure how much material is on the handle.
As far as the stage two and performance exhaust I really counldn't answer it. It would make a difference as with any four cylinder car like the Cobalt, but the question is do you have the extra money to spend. I would go on google and do a search. There is a couple Cobalt sites that I have been to in the past that have information and a forum with people who have done modifications.

actually it is th area between the handle and the edge of the door. it was only on the drivers side until i took a client to lunch and then the same area appeared on the passenger side also have a small area at rear bumper at trunk lid. it just seems that anywhere anything touches it it leaves a visible mark almost like someone was using a pencil on it. it's got me confused
#21 of 28 THICKER CLOTH AND WIDER SEATS
Sep 25, 2007 (1:06 pm)
Dear Chevrolet, I need the cloth used in the LS to be a little less like a bedsheet and more like the thick, soft velour I have in my base Corolla. I need for Chevy to keep in mind those of us with wider hips when they design their bucket seats. Also, put some foam on the steering wheel so that it doesn't feel as if it came off a Tonka toy. And please keep that beautiful blue granite color choice for exterior, a matching interior would be nice! Those are my suggestions.

Chevy doesn't make the seats for this car. The were designed by a well respected seat builder who works for several auto companies. The seats went through a lot of testing before the car was even released.
Two or three colors for interiors are what you will see with most auto companies. If you start making more it get real expensive and doesn't justify the cost.

The forum heading says tell Chevrolet what I want, that's what I want. Not to be crass or anything, but I don't give a *&^% what they have to do to give it to me.

I just bought a 2007 LS coupe and most of what I have to say is minor.
1). ABS should be standard on ALL Cobalts. My 1992 Cavalier came standard with ABS.
2). Power locks and keyless entry should also be standard.
3). Sedans should get the rear of the coupe because it looks sportier and less generic.
4). Redesign the center console with an armrest (that doesn't block the E-brake).
5). Make the door panels 2-tone to match the dash.
6). Put the latches that fold the rear seat inside the cabin and not in the trunk.
7). I love GM but they need to stop badge-engineering their small cars. I really don't see the need for the Pontiac G5.

The lack of folding rear seat latch in the cabin is that way for security purposes. If you left your car unlocked than anyone could pull the seat easily back to access the trunk.

this is also so items such as open containers and firearms and other such items are more difficult to access from passenger area of vehicle.

You make a good point but this is a suggestion of mine since it's kinda an inconvenience. I live out in the middle of nowhere and never had trouble like that before but since we all don't live in a secure area I guess it could be a problem having latches inside the car.
