I like the fog lamps especially where I travel in low lit areas at times. Every little bit helps. And I will tell you to just go LED on the low beams and fogs and call it good. High beams are optional, but I think you will be happier with LEDs. I just did mine and am happy with them.
I just went through a little bit of trial and error. Luckily, I only went through 2 sets of bulbs, with the 2nd set being the winner. Read all about it here...I have always thought about going that route with my Aurora but I didn't want to trial and error with them in terms in dependability and fitment and the cost as well as the fact halogen housings are not meant to accommodate them properly, I went with the HIR mod in my Aurora but i realize in the Impala i can't do that. What led kits do you use and did it require modification?
I didn't have to modify the housings with either set. The first set just wasn't a good fit with its design. The 2nd set, from BPS lighting, was much better for a couple of reasons... shape of the bulb was similar to a stock halogen and direct plug in to the bulb instead of into a wire that runs into the bulb. The first set of bulbs had radio interference issues also. The BPS bulbs are much better for the 8th gen Impala in my opinion if you are looking for true plug and play with no modifications. The two year warranty is cool too.I have read that article, my my understanding you had to modify the headlight housing to make those lights fit correct?
$14,990 Canadian is $11,500 USD... so in my opinion they can come down some in price, don't know about the few thousand you were thinking, but I think at least 1500 to 2000 lower would be good. I know this much... the 8th gen Impalas don't sit long on dealer lots around here. I would say go for it if you like the color combo and it is mechanically sound. I would offer 3000 less and negotiate accordingly.Well I am back again, unfortunately the black Impala sold a few weeks back but I found another in like new condition that just arrived at a dealership near me. They want about 15k CAD for it but i want to knock them down a few thousand. I took her for a test drive a few days ago and wow so smooth and powerful. There website has no pictures yet but I took a few after my test dive, it has a black interior but with tan seats and armrest. Let me know what you think.

Go for it! You never know what they might say.I was thinking about starting at $10000 CAD and meet in the middle maybe $13000 CAD taxes in. I find around here with 2012 or 2013 LTZs sit either for a few months or a few weeks. I do like the color. I can understand the demand for them is anyone does their research and is looking for a large car despite sedans being phased out.
