Traded my beloved Red-Jewel Tintcoat 2008LTZ for a CPO 2015 2LTZ!!!! Old LTZ had 82,500mi. The 2015 has 27,000mi, & was a lease turn-in from an "older local couple" they said.

I Loooooooovvve my "new" Baby!!!!

Only thing it doesn't have is the Radar-Cruise! I love that feature in the Wife's 2014 AWD Regal-Turbo. Oh well, I like the "regular" grill better.

It has: The RQ9 20" wheels, UQS Bose-Centerpoint stereo within the (PCJ) LTZ Premium-audio pkg, (PCH) LTZ Comfort & Conv pkg, & on & on..…...!!

Her color is the GBE "Crystal Red Tintcoat", with my FAVE....Black Leather interior!
Some pix....from above, AND underneath!

Nice upgrade! The new Impalas are so nice.
What did you hit in your old Impala? Looks like some kind of a black blob hanging off the front and rear bumpers. :laughing7:

The more I drive this thing, the more I LOVE IT!! With the 20" wheels, you still "feel" the road, but it's more comfortable & quieter than the '08 LTZ. That really was FIRM!

Got the SHORT/FITTED Impala Splash-Guards installed a few days ago. Wish to hell the fronts were "taller". They told me the traditional style can't be mounted on the 9th gens. I'm tempted to see if I can mount a "cut-off" length of the tall ones to the flat area of these tiny guards?!!??!

I just CRINGE when I think of all the "sandblasting" the lower body of a car gets over the years!!!! Up here in Fargo ND/MN......sand, salt.....the horrors are too much for me! 😉

Anyone have other ideas/opinions??!?

Nice! I got the splash guards too a few months after I got my car. I like the look of them. Strange thing that my car didn’t come with door sill plates. I added those too.

Never cared for mud/splash flaps/guards on a car.

The needless "finish destruction" bothers the HELL out of me. SO easy to prevent a lot of it. Not to mention keeping TAR messes off!!! Couple of pics.....

Damn! That's a pretty "White Girl"!!!


Are ya doing any mud-flaps?

I see you have the Radar-Cruise grill. Mine has everything but that. I really like it on the Wife's 2014 AWD Regal-Turbo. It's SO MUCH quieter & comfortable than my '08 LTZ!!! I love the bigger 20" wheels/tires. HOWEVER.....they are near-worthless on snow/ice....grrrrr!


Make sure you're using NO-Ethanol Top-Tier class Premium, & some Seafoam once a month. I don't give a damn if they're Flex-Fuel engines. Mine ain't seein' ANY of it!!

No mud flaps. Yes it has the radar-cruise grill. The cruise part is great on trips. I do not like the auto braking. It has slammed the breaks on twice, (not for a valid reason). Thankfully I was not rear ended.

Yes the 20's are no good for winter weather. She doesnt get driven in the winter. I have a Chevy Equinox to cover winter. :)

Nice! Looks like the old one is still shining. I would only trade my Impala for another Impala but since they're going away next year, I will keep mine indefinitely.
