Hey everyone! Introducing my newly purchased 2012 Impala 9C3.
I was told that it was an ex federal use vehicle, not sure for what or how often it was used. It looks to have had lights mounted in the back window and on the windshield in front of the visor. It is also VERY clean with 59K miles. I have never driven such a large sedan that handles as well as this one does. You can plow into a corner and not worry about understeer, as the suspension, bigger swaybars and the stabilitrak is calibrated differently than all other Impalas. It has a "Performance Mode" when you turn off the traction control which wasn't available until 2012 on the 9C1/9C3 I think. I'm sure all other 9C1/9C3 owners know what I mean about how well these cars handle right from the factory.
So far I have installed eBay tinted taillights, tinted the windows myself with 15% side and 5% on the back window, and installed clear corner headlights. I have also done some fluid changes - oil and brake fluid so far. Soon it needs a trans fluid change, power steering, and coolant.
Future plans include:
Full carpet install
GM accessory exhaust tip install
Trifecta or Overkill tune
Possibly Lowering springs and put on my matte black OZ Ultraleggera's I have laying around.
Quick picture I took today:
Looking for many years of fun with this car, and here on the forums.
