Thumbs up 2009 Impala SS

Hello everyone, my names Adam and I am the proud owner of a 2009 Impala Super Sport. Some of you will know me by my previous account on here 07ImpalaLT01. When I originally joined I owned a black 2007 Impala LT, which was my first car. Unfortunately it was T-boned at the end of July 2016 and totaled. But I really enjoyed the car. My only regret was not buying the SS model they had at the dealership instead of the LT. So here was my opportunity. I searched around and didn't really find much. Finally came across this one in nearby Ohio.

First thing, had to remove the ugly license plate holder


Purchased some drilled/slotted rotors considering the brakes on these aren't the best

Changed the tail lights to some LED ones I found on eBay


Purchased some Rohana RF2 19x8.5 wheels

Belle Tire had a New Years sale, attempted to buy some tires (forgot the brand) but they didn't have them in stock. So they offered me a better set of BFG tires for the same price

Whited out the Chevy emblems

It's looking good! I like the white bowtie accents with the Deep Crystal red. Great looking car. Remind me where you are located in Michigan?

Car looks awesome, love the wheels and that red paint... Do yourself a favor and start a slush fund for the transmission. Don't want to be a Debbie Downer, but the track record for transmission reliability in those isn't very good. Best of luck with it!

South East, about 45 minutes from Detroit, 5 from Ohio. If you want to look it up it's Lambertville, MI

I figured the white bow tie would go well with the SS emblems. A lot better than the gold.

Thank you

Oh I know all about the transmission. Let's strap a transmission that has issues on the 3800's onto a 5.3 V8. So far it still has the original transmission, eventually though it'll crap out like they all do. Then TEP will get another customer.

Thank you, I thought the color would go well with the car. Plus they are kinda similar to something you might see on the Chevy SS.

Actually yes. I need to have my eyes checked, I can't read anything far away. When I do that I'm going to try and get a window tint permit so I can have 5% on the front as well.

I agree - nice wheels! Typically, I'm not a fan of "skinny spoke" wheels, but they look really nice on that car!
