Picked up a 2011 SES today

I unloaded my CheapZX5 project for a pretty good profit, and needed a good car to get to and from work. I wound up with a pretty well equiped 2011 SES and now it seems I have a new reason to be on this forum. I have some plans, but none too extreme, probably just a CAI and an exhaust upgrade. Oh, yeah and tinting the windows is at the top of the list. Anything I should keep my eye on on this model?

Don't think so, the current focus is pretty solid and there's no known recalls that I know off.
How much did you get it for? Only other things, besides what you mentioned, that Id wanna do is give it a slight drop, like with the FRPP suspension kit, cause already you got nice wheels and a nice body kit. Congrats by the way.

Picked it up for $16500 before taxes. Thanks for the input, I'll probably leave it stock height due to some of the roads it goes down. Any info or comments are welcome.

Congrats on the buy. I got mine 3 weeks ago and is loving it. I got it tinted right away. Plan to put a CAI and exhaust and lowering it in the near future.

Looks pretty nice from the avatar. I love black when they're new but they're certainly a pain in the ass to keep nice. Everything shows up on a black car.

The eginne bay has not changed in the last couple of years, right? Most of the companies I've looked at don't include the 2011 in their line up yet and I don't want to order an 09 or 10 part and it not fit due to some subtle change. It's going in for tint probably Tuesday, I'm looking forward to that. Has anyone installed mud guards front and rear, I'll be putting this thing through hell and want to protect the fenders and quarter panels from rock chips. I like the moulded custom fit style, but haven't researched them yet.
