So today my wife and I went to a local used car lot and test drove 2 vehicles. Before,I was about to purchase an suv,the dealer pulled out of the garage in a 2009 impala ltz. Long story short,I told them I was interested in the impala and to my surprise it was 1000 dollars cheaper than the suv!.It's black with after market chrome rims,and already had duel exhaust on it like I liked and would have added if no so equipped. It has a deep rumble and not raspy as far as a v-6 goes,I'm not sure what mufflers are on it but sounds great. It's loaded with leather on star,and has the fog lights which look really cool at night. I have wanted an impala for a col years now and finally found one,fairly low miles at 79,000.

Welcome! I would also love to see some pictures. I had a 2009 super sport and now my son has a 2014 LTZ limited. I really like the platform.

Also just an FYI, all eighth generation LTZ models, like yours, came with the dual exhaust. So, it might not be an aftermarket system that is on the car.

Only the LTZ model gets the leather OnStar. The LT gets the plastic OnStar. And lower models get cardboard.

The new guy forgets one comma, and jeez. :nerd :)

I always thought that the OnStar advisor sounded a little "plastic-y" on my 2012 LT - now I now why! Should have gotten an LTZ.... <sigh>

Thanks tss,I wasn't sure if my car came factory with duel exhaust or not,but the mufflers on it don't look or sound factory,but I can't see the manufacturing name on them,maybe just some genetic turbos? At least it sounds good!

What do you mean by turbos? I'm confused :/

I will agree with you, whatever Chevy did to the stock exhaust on the 3.9 and 3.6 is incredible (I have no real experience with the 3.5). Imo they sound fantastic stock, especially upon startup... Very throaty and rumbly.

3.5 sounds quiet...like whisper quiet...although in my garage on cold starts it sounds decent..for about 15 seconds then quiets down and i get sad again :(. the resonator delete when it rotted out might have made it very slightly louder but still, the car is seen not heard :( haha.

What i mean by turbo is I think thrush or someone makes what's called turbo mufflers,they are just cheap well sounding mufflers but are prone to rusting,these mufflers are definitely not stock it's pretty loud but sounds awesome with little drone or cabin noise.
