RS Package

Okay I have searched and haven't found everything that is in the RS Package. From what I understand I think it includes...
  • HID Headlamps (Halo Lights)
  • Rear Spoiler
  • Darker Taillights
  • RS Badge
  • 19 and 20" wheels
Is their something I am missing? Also, how much does this package add to the value?

i think its like a $1600 package.. but somebody will clarify. the RS headlights alone are $900/light So its worth it if you want the lights and you wont be buying them separately! So some people do the eagle eye headlights(like i did) and you can find those off ebay for $400 for BOTH headlights. Or you can find somebody selling them on here for a descent price

I did it on kbb, the value went from $18,826 to $20,326.
I don't have a new Camaro so I don't want the price difference of the newer ones, it may be the same but I don't know for sure.
I am more concerned about what the RS package includes.

That's weird because when I added the Halo lights to the value on KBB, it didn't change.

Anniversary Edition Camaros include the RS package, but have some detail differences too, such as unique wheels, darkened tail light bezels, same color molding on roof, 45th emblems on door sills, seats and floor mats, unique paint and have the Halo HID lights, and shark fin antenna.

don't forget the "better" tires on those 20" wheels, but they aren't good if you gotta drive it in the snow.

If your ordering a new Camaro, for sure get the RS package. I didn't and that is the only thing about my car that I keep kicking myself about. I really wish I would have ordered it.

I may be trading up soon, and if I could add the RS package to increase value of my car without spending more than what it would gain. I would do it, the only thing I wouldn't get is the wheels.

Did you already have the "RS Package" checked? HID lights are included in the RS package.

No I did three of them, one with all my options. Another with my options + HIDs, and another with my options + RS package.
It only changed when I added RS package.

Another RS feature is the speed limiter is set higher (150 mph I think).

Shockingly they do not advertise this.

FYI this will not increase the value of the car on KBB. The RS vin code is what KBB is increasing the value off of not the parts per say. I also dont see how you will get body color roof ditch molding on the car, all said and done you will prbly spend more to put the RS parts on then KBB is increasing the value for.

The speed limited is because of the tires that come on the SS'S and the LT's with the RS package and it is 155 mph NOT 150.

You would think the rs package would have nice polished out chrome wheels instead of making them darker the rs package was a must for me only thing that had me sold were the headlights I did not wanna be driving around with the ugly yellow looking headlights with no halos, sorry and no offense to anyone

The shark-fin in body color is only on 12 and up I believe. I can say for certian that the 10-11 did not get this with the RS pkg

RS Package Daily Driver

I live in New England and bought a convertible as my daily driver. The dealer I went to only had a convertible with the RS package. I thought wow, cool lights, cool rims. I didn't realize that the tires were summer tires. I immediately had to buy new rims with snow tires. Also, those expensive summer tires tend to wear out quickly. I would have been better off with All Season tires that wear better. I bought a V6 so I am not looking for optimal performance. If I had it to do over again I would have not have bought the RS package. I do really like those lights though.
