Call me crazy, but I like the Impala. Does it have any mods done to it?

Default The Impala

It'* bone stock (other than splash guards) but absolutely loaded with every option I could get.

This is the wife'* unit. In late 2003 we test drove about 13 different cars. I was leaning towards an Acura TL-* A Spec but it came either black or dark blue. In the end Cathy insisted on an Impala so I phoned our favorite dealership and made sure it was Sand Mist and loaded. The SC was not available until 2004 I think or I would have had that too.

The next time I get new tires I'll add some chrome rims. If there is one item from GM that I do not like it'* the aluminum rims. They're difficult to wash dirt off, they don't shine but they corrode.

I have a hunch that daughter #2 will get this car in her last year of university. If that'* the case, I may lower it a bit when I add the tires/rims. That is another topic for me to search on the forum; how to lower a 2003 Impala.

Love the Vette. That'* been my favorite car since I was in high school. Hi5!

There are plenty of ways to lower a 2003 impala. If I remember correctly, that'* the same suspension that came in the 97-03 Grand Prix and Buick Regal, which there are lowering kits for. Just keep in mind lowering is more than just springs. We'll help you out!

Welcome to GMForum. This is the best forum I've been on, and I have over 5500 posts on another forum before I joined here. You've definitely come to the right place.

Make yourself comfortable, ask any questions you want, and let us know how we can help; that'* what we're here to do.

Welcome to the forum!

I'm liking the 2010 Chevy Truck, always had a soft spot for a nice truck.

I have a feeling you are going to fit right in here.
