    Too little too late.
    Plus your steering is on the wrong side, and your ss logos are backwards.
    Flip the image again.

    It's a pretty clean chop. And I like your grill better.

    It's definitely an improvement over the current model.

    I wish they'd give the nose and tail one last redo. Ditto the interior.

    They can keep the 3.5L/3.9L, but add a 6AT.

    looks great!

    but we all know GM won't spend another dime while this car rots on the lot.

    Its sad to me that all they would have to do is put a new grille and bumper on the current Impala to make it look so much better, but they don't
    Edit: Headlights too

    Exactly. It should be too little too late, like Rex Said, but the sad truth is that it's not.

    If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find him, maybe you can hire Uzzy.

    If you wanted a cheap update, the headlights coulld not go into the hood. Changing bumper and grille is relatively cheap.

    I see no problem with the steering wheel looks fine to me - and it's a ZZ not an SS
