Thanks for the links.

Your dealer is very likely to NOT just throw in the halo/HID lights... it takes a special wire harness (definitely NOT OEM) and of course, the lights themselves... new GM cost is likely close to or exceeding the entire cost of the RS package. If you really want the RS features, it may be bests to negotiate with the dealer and have them locate or order you what you want.

Water and soap is all you need to clean it off, that's what most owners with vinyl don't know.

Do people know that 3m warranties the wrap for life? Seems some people either don't know that or forgot.

Okay now I'm really confused. Are you saying that the Halos come on a different housing and that the dealer cant' just give them to me without changing the harness?

If that's true than damn.

So the only way to get those Halos is with the RS package?

Thanks for the information

Right. The halo lights are included in the housing with the HID headlights. It's not just a simple plug and play swap. there's aftermarket harnesses and then the cost of the entire headlight housing assembies.

It's worth getting the RS package. Don't take the cheap way out.

U will need a hareness if u switched to halos. The housing I was talkind about is the taillights, the lens r the same on rs and non-rs taillights. The inner housing on rs tails are dark inside.

Apparently by just mentioning the RS Halo lights and that I wanted the dealer to throw in, many of you guys have given me some great information, but in the process it kind of hijacked the thread

Thanks again for all the information

I have some of the dreaded scratches on mine... but I'm hesitating putting anything on it.

OP, did you contact dealer first for warranty on hood wrap, or called 3m warranty line? I've called the 3m customer service 2 times and left messages with no reply 1 month apart from each call. Maybe I should take to dealer if they get ahold of the warranty guys, cause I have no luck.

I went to the dealer and they got it taken care of for me, I also called 3M after the wrap was replaced at the dealership because I thought it was stained again. They answered my emails promptly, even offering to mail me a replacement wrap if the cleaning directions on their website didn't take care of the stain. The dealership was great because they either had 3M cover the install or they paid for it, either way I was no money out of pocket. I do think in the future I will have the wrap removed and the hood painted, the wraps are only suppose to be left on for 3 years according to the 3M website. Good luck and hopefully your dealership will be as good as mine was.

Ok thanks, I'll try the dealer out this time and hopefully they do take care of my wrap. Bought the car used, so wrap could be better. Stains here and there looks like oxided bird doo, but it's still under factory warranty, so maybe they can get it done for me. Appreciate the quick response.
