Idk, hopefully your right but i touched them and rubbed on them lol cuz i really wanted polished.. whatever it is it seems to be under a clearcoat or something def not rubbing off its in the metal, it doesnt look as bad in the shade but in the sunlight it looked really bad and they were all like that.. but i liked the midnight ones (guess theyre calling them bright silver painted now??) too so i played it safe.. cant wait to see the nav!! shoulnt someone be getting one soon so we can all see it??

Hey, the site has a pic of the car as you build it up, changes color, wheels change. You can even make the top go up and down. I am checking for "rub marks" right now, ha.

Yeah, it's nice they show the actual car now while building.

The site freezes up before you can do anything.

Either they have some bugs they are still working out or it is being flooded by camaro5 members...

$45,565 for my exact car. Pretty happy with what I paid for mine at this moment! That is almost "God's Chariot" territory for the base model 'Vette.

Funny when you build a 1LE with the RS package, it takes off the 1LE wheels and puts on the RS wheels.

Looks like if you add the RS package to a 1LE the site changes the wheels from black 10 spoke to the 20" midnight silver

At least when you look at the Photos & Videos, the site takes the entire screen showing these beautiful Camaros. I just wish they showed Summit White 1LEs. I think we need to shout while typing so Chevy will hear us.

HEY CHEVY, ARE YOU HEARING YOUR FAITHFUL ENTHUSIASTS?!!! BUILD A BETTER WEBSITE Please

I wanted the polished wheels too, $470 option when it is with the car package, but a whole bunch more on its own.

Anyways, I have the midnight silver painted ones, and they are really nice, better than I thought.

Yeah, I forgot about the clearcoat, that is a great thing to have unless you want to buff out underneath!

Good luck!

The base 1LS is $24k and you can add 21" wheels for $5280, or 21% of the base price. Those must be some wheels.
