Smile Recent mods on 2012 LT

After months and months of saving, I finally went out and bought my first real car, a 2012 Impala LT. This car is a total beast compared to my old 1999 Monte Carlo. I love everything about this car. I'll probably use this thread to post all of my future mods also.

The day I brought her home:


Some before pictures:




Things I've currently dipped:

The roof:


The side trim:


The spoiler:


Mods I want to do:
CCFL Halo Projector Headlights
Dip the front grills and side mirrors black
18" (possibly 20") rims
20% tint all around
LED light strip in cutouts on front bumper
Possible audio system
+ more that I cant think of at the moment

Wow just realized you responded. Sorry. But I was looking at some CCFL Halo lights. I was looking at the Spyder ones, but $300+ is a lot for some headlights at the moment.

Get the Anzo ones - they have some small differences from the Spyder ones, but they make them look better IMO.

I got my Anzo halos for $200, while they're upwards of $400 retail. Search Ebay for 'em if you want.

You could also consider trying Matt's (donmateo) site, he has halos for under $300.

If your grille is grey, no doubt, paint or dip it black, including the chrome trim. It will look a lot more classy, and IMO, good.

Paint the front bowtie the same color as the body.
