My 2012 1LS - "Ariana"

EDIT: First post updated 8/21/12

Ariana is going to be traded in for a new SS soon! details on post in page 3.

Original Post:

As seen on this thread (http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=190638), I recently bought a 2012 1LS in SIM.
I finally got my dealer window tint and splash guards installed.
My plans are to have bolt-ons put on by summer time. Want to have a RX catch can (painted in SIM), CAI intake, Auxiliary Gauge pack, and PDIM installed. After that, I plan on getting rims to replace the heritage wheels.
However, I'm getting married in February, so the chances of all that happening in 2012 are slim. But it's good to dream big, right?


CURRENT MODS:
Exterior:
GM splash guards
AAC LED sidemarkers
BigWormGraphix matte black emblems, hood spears and gill accents

Interior:
GM Premium floor mats
Aqua footwell/dome/trunk lighting provided by AAC
EmblemPros "LS" Dash Plaque

Performance/Under The Hood stuff:
Cold Air Inductions cold air intake
RX Catch Can
The catalysts behind the o2 sensor have been deleted, piping is 2.5" all the way, Magnaflow resonated-X to replace factory H pipe, with Flowmaster Super44 mufflers and exhaust tips
GM Strut Tower Brace


Current pics:

Looking good so far and yes, shoot for the Moon so you hit the Stars if you're a little off.

Best Wishes and Happy New Year to you,

Just got my RX Catch Can in the mail from JDP Motorsports
(If you see this, thanks for the good customer service )
Also bought my Mobil 1 Synthetic to change the oil this weekend for the first time and also changing my rear axle oil at the same time. Good weekend ahead for Ariana!

Thanks.
Hopefully soon I can order my CAI and get that in. My wedding is on Feb. 18 though, so it may be longer than I want
I'm starting to drive it a bit harder now after putting full synth in the engine and rear diff, and I'm loving my car even more.

Got my exhaust installed today.
Flowmaster Super44s, 2.5 inch piping, Magnaflow as the resonator.
Sounds very civil at low speed, nice and deep at low RPMs.

The devil is in the details... and two detail items for around $20 a piece make nice touches.
- LED lights for license plate lights (don't have pics because its still day time)
- EmblemPros custom dash plaque
