I'm not trying to be "that guy" but I honestly don't like this package deal at all...

I hate tan interiors and dislike the bright wheels. Dusk is the time just before darkness and I feel like this should have been a 'stealthy' package. I like the color but dark gray accents with gun-metal (or equivalent) wheels would look sick on this thing.

Don't hate me for saying that, it's only my opinion.

Too bad they are painted rims. Tan interior with yellow stitching sounds like an odd color combination, I would have to see it before buying. Seems a little pricey for what you get.

Am I dreamin'?
Yes.

Rims on a Vert sans the stripes? Really, where is the great departure?

Are you serious? They are not close in price. How much do you think a convertable ZL1, with a few options, would cost? A comparable ZL1 will cost a minimum of $13,000 more than a Dusk Edition.

If you don't like the car, don't buy one. However, for everything you get with the package, the price is actually a deal.

I'm pretty sure I promised GM that if they built this, I'd buy one. Oops. Now what?

i dont like the painted wheels, for nearly 6,000 dollars u would think they would have an option for chrome or atleast some special coloring like on the wheel edge, and the rest is painted parts, thats an awful lot of money for that! i do like the color, i think its a great blue.

Ordered the wife's 2013 Dusk 2SS. Can't wait for it to get here!

While at the dealership, they had a 2013 convertible 2LT/RS. I noticed it had paddle shifters. Is this a factory option?

Gotta say I initially was happy there would be a blue Camaro again. However after seeing the Corvette painted in the "Dusk Blue" color at C5F III I'm underwhelmed. Kept looking over at the very dark colored Corvette convertible and wondered why it was there. Was more than a bit surprised when I saw the sign on the windshield. In anything other than the most direct bright sushine at just the right angle I'd never look at this car and think "Blue" IMO. Just kind of drab. Was pretty taken back at the package price as well. I have to wonder how having the vendor make one addition bumper cover color plus them using a paint color they may already use in the plant, loading some yellow thread and stitching up the mojave leather instead of black, and painting wheels a different color would cost six grand more. I guess there are just some things about the automotive industry that I don't fully understand.
My practical side tells me that 3, 5 whatever years down the road when that Camaro is sitting on the used car lot right next to other non-dusk Camaros with the same/similar option content, somebody is going to be eating about six grand. I'd rather it not be me. Sorry Chevy, just how I see it.

Edit: OK well I did not realize that that the RS and ground effects were included so that's my fault, but I still don't think it's going to sell for thousands over the other used Camaros once it's on the used car lot.
