First time in the Chevy family - the Love Boat

Hello everyone! First Chevy I have ever owned. Happy to be here.


I now own a 2012 Impala, LTZ trim. I got her used from a dealer. She has 87k, but she also was meticulously taken care of and I got a pretty good deal on her. She's a Crystal Red Tint. So I've named her the Love Boat.


She'll be used for a daily commute of ~60 miles a day for the next couple months, so I need to make sure I keep her in great shape.


Again, I am happy to be a part of the community. And I look forward to learning more about my car. Here she is:

In the pic, with the sun on it, it almost looks Victory Red, lol. I also love the Crystal Red Tintcoat Metallic.

I am about two weeks into owning this car, and I ABSOLUTELY love it!! And no, I didn't pay what the dealer was asking lol!!


I had to get over my first couple rock chips but I am trying to stay on top of keeping her in tip-top shape.

I couldn't agree more. The more 8th gens I see, the more happy I am with the combo I found.


The Imp was supposed to stay completely stock as a daily alongside my weekend car (big turbo Audi). But man, I'd love to snag a Trifecta tune and some exhaust for that OEM+ feel. It's so tempting.

I was very happy with my 2012 LTZ, too bad it is gone. I did put gold pin stripes down the sides to tie the gold bowties together and in the sun that gold and Crystal Red POPPED! Tinted the windows too.
