Greetings all - As my title suggests, a couple weeks back I bought a lightly used 2012 Impala LT, and I'm loving it.

Over the years, my wife (i.e. - Mrs. Plaid) has often complained that I drive like an old man, and she's (for the most part) right. Slow stops, slow starts and seeing how long the car will last - that's me. The very definition of middle age.:yikes:

But this car begs to be driven. It's a wolf in sheep's clothing. Love the acceleration, handling and performance. But that's nothing compared to how much I've grown to love hearing the wife complain that I'm driving like a maniac! :giggle:

So yeah. I enjoy it a lot. And maybe a bit too much.

Now I've gotta ask from the forum's collective wisdom - are there any essential mods I should make, right off the bat? Performance, appearance, etc. I'm talking about must haves, no brainers...that kind of stuff. Nothing's been done with this car (to my knowledge); it's all stock, and a blank canvas (literally...it's white).

Thanks in advance. I look forward to hearing from you!

Welcome.

My must haves are probably a little extreme for most. So most must have An intake and exhaust usually make the car sound a lot better and give you some better throttle response.


Also post some pics of the blank canvas!!

I'm on the pics, but I need a day or two. It's snowing here...if I took and posted them now you'd only see wheels!
