Impala is sweet, a much needed upgrade for me, but I'm not getting as good MPG, of course, its worth it though. I'm already starting some mods, similar to the ones on my old Cobalt.

Having that loud ass alarm and remote keyless entry has shown my jealous neighbors that its not touchable, also remote start cools my car down, its like an oven, I had to run out and start my balt about 10 minutes before I used the car as it would be so hot. Also, here in Texas, leaving your car running without you in it is illegal. I can get away with the ticket since my remote start is stock, so the car may be running, but it will never shift out of park, so its perfectly legal.

Really, nothing going on here, I leave for a short while, this place gets like a graveyard, lol..

Yea, The excessive space I have is something I'm not used to, the truck is huge, 3 adults (not small ones) can sit comfortably in the rear seats. The comfort I get now knowing my doors are locked at night (old balt no electric locks + me been lazy = unlocked doors) is very nice, the alarm also is nice, electric windows, instant MPG and Tire Pressure information is all bonus stuff I'm also not used too, I know Cobalts have this too, but mine didn't.

I love the new ride, I will be honest, when at the dealership, I was shopping for another Cobalt, but they had non, stumbled on this Impala and it had some hail damage (Discount applied) and well, its mine. It was the fleet standard equipment, so it has no satellite radio and no onstar, but it does have stock remote start and all the other trimmings.

I made the dealership give me an aftermarket alarm and an aftermarket satellite radio, which uses stock radio head unit and is hidden, so apart from no sat antenna on my roof, nobody knows any better the satellite is not stock.

Rio Grande Valley Texas.

Yep using the space well, grocery shopping is no longer an issue, wasn't really an issue anyway, but now its just easy.

Just got into a fender bender today, need a new bumper, well not really, but I don't like bondo jobs lol. my hood seems to be off too, pulling to one side, but I got full comp insurance, just going to check the banks camera to confirm who is at fault before I go and make a claim.
