Thought I'd post a pic of my Regal. It's dark otter/storm over gray leather. Non-sunroof, special option (ordered by US Gov. when new) car. It is in remarkably nice condition, and is my daily driver.
Motor and trans are stock, but I've updated the chassis to include what I consider to be all the best versions of parts from this shared GM platform. The handling is impressive. The Bilstein GXP struts (though expensive) are the single best modification, without question. Slightly firmer ride over smaller bumps and road ripples, but the Bilsteins offer much better control in difficult situations, especially at high speed on imperfect roads. No more float or vagueness whatsoever.
All modifications are brand new parts except for the calipers, which were from an 09 Impala with 9k miles, and wheels which were Craigslist units:
Impala SS twin-piston front calipers
9c1/SS front brake rotors OE GM
Stop Tech pads front and rear
GXP Bilstein struts front and rear
FE3 OE GS springs
9c1 strut mounts front and rear
9c1 lower control arms and ball joints
33mm Dorman front sway bar and stiffer rubber mounts
17" GXP double-spoke wheels with match-painted Buick Tri Shield center caps
Precision weighted alignment
35% window tint except windshield
I got all the new parts through Amazon or Rock Auto.
It drives like a new car. People who have ridden in this car can't believe it's a Buick as the chassis feedback and road-holding is vastly different than stock. Great car for sure, hope you guys like it.
