At last I have time and the weather is nice enough to get some good pictures of my 2014 Impala LTZ. I call her Pearl Jams because of the White Diamond paint and the Bose sound system:eek:k3:.

I got the car in Feb of this year and have added a front license plate, Navy Blue metallic pin strips, Tinted the windows, a new set of BF Goodrich G-Force Comp 2 A/S tires, Black accents around the tail lights, a scratch protector on the bumper below the trunk lip and old school Impala emblems to the doors.

Hope you enjoy the pictures and let me know what you think!

OK RobHazmat, got them off Amazon. They are Reproductions. I had to cut the posts off the back and apply 3M emblem tape. Here is a video of the install
Thanks! I love those emblems. I have a 2LT that I'm trying to sport up a bit and these are a nice subtle touch. Might get these after I swap out my rear end for the ltz rear end

Thank you for the comments and compliments but I must say that I saw this done on another thread here in the forum. One of the Impala limited owners put these on the sail panel behind the rear quarter window. Too bad I cannot find that thread again to give them proper credit.

Good luck with all your updates, be sure to post photos as you can. :eek:k3:

Love how your car looks, especially the pinstripes. I'm thinking of doing something similar with mine, only Im going to use silver since my car is the dark blue ray metallic. I want to do some pinstripes on the hood to outline the scallops as well.

Thank you very much! I am rather pleased with all the additions so far. I did also consider the hood scallops for pin stripes or something else but decided to leave it as is for now. If I ever get bored with the way the car looks I can always do more stripes later.

I would caution you to use a quality vinyl pin stripe not the junk plastic stripes sold at local auto parts stores. The reason I say this is because the dark color of your car will bake the plastic stripes and they will dry up and start cracking and flaking. I made that mistake before putting cheap silver stripes on a darker blue truck.

So back to the car, I think my next addition to the outside of the car would probably be splash guards or a trunk spoiler.........time will tell! :D

Totally didn't realize you were missing the spoiler. I thought that came standard on the LTZ/premier models. Still looks sick! I'm in the middle of trying to swap out the rear end on my 2LT for the duel exhaust.
