I like the RS package to tell you the truth.

I like the RS package but I also enjoy the look of the non RS package. I like the old-school look of the camaro so I felt like the non RS headlights chimed in with it. I did get the high polished wheels though because they look much better than the painted stocks. Do I think the RS package is worth the 1400? Hell no. BUT when buying a $36K+ car what is another 1400 dollars? maybe like 5 dollars a month when financing.

We all get to walk out to our cars every morning and be greatful that we have such nice, fast, amazing cars to drive to work in. (or to dunkin donuts if you are retired)

I would go with the RS Package. Love the headlights, and Rims. The wheel package also sets your top speed at 155, wheras the non RS package is 113mph with 18 inch rims and tires. You could always buy a spare set of rims and tires for Winter. Also, like upgrading DRL to LED and buying the harness to keep them on with your headlights. About $110 for both. Really takes the look up a notch.

It's important to buy what you want. But also, when/if you decide to sell a non-RS, there will be some potential buyers that will balk at that. Sorry to say, but it's true. If the RS is a popular option when new, it'll also be a popular option second or third-hand.

There are a few out there that don't really care or want it, so those will be the ones you can sell to.

One note though, I've heard many go the non-RS that later wish they had, but I've yet to see anyone that did go with RS to regret getting it.

Start adding up all the little things and you would be surprised just how good of a deal it really is.


Absolutely a hell of a deal if you price the RS features individually. OP... if you don't want all the RS stuff, don't get it. Nobody's forcing you.

i still like my non rs camaro i boiught new. guys, the halos just arent a big deal to me. really arent. i have the heritage grill and put chrome fog bezels on last weekend. car is a black vert, so antenna is painted too. i wanted the 19s as all season tires. the 20s are nice, dont get me wrong, but my 19s are polished, and dont look any different to me than 20s. to each his own. i bought the car for my likes and i think an all black vert non rs with flares, heritage grill, 19 polished wheels and nav. would sell if i deceided to sell. but i didnt buy it for the next person, i bought it for me! pic of my car is on my main profile, pic wont post on forums. love the car though!

No camaro looks like junk. It's still the same body and everything . So, you're saying that you wouldn't have bought a camaro if they didn't comeout with the RS package. I think both are sweet ! I just think the RS package adds to it.

I understand what you're saying, but just to clarify, the higher speed limiter is available on ANY Camaro with 19" or larger wheels, regardless of RS package.

Spare tire has nothing to do with the RS package.

The only thing I like about RS that is a must have for me is that the HID headlights light up very nice at night. I can't see sqwat at night in my 2004 Dodge Ram even with the fog lights on unless I hold the high beams bar back so the brights and fog lights stay on at the same time.

For the 2014MY they added some more differentiation for the RS package, but the 2012-13 models only differed by wheels, headlights, roof ditch molding color, and shark fin antenna color.

Just going from an LS to a 2LT got you a bunch more changes, too.

Since I am retired I hardly ever drive after dark, so the HIDs were not a high priority to me. I didn't care also for the RS wheel package. So it was easy for me to decide.
I am very happy with my 1LT non RS with the 18" IROC style wheels.

I hear you. I have always felt that the stock RS and SS wheels look more like Corvette type wheels. That is why I just bought these SLP wheels. These look kinda 3rd gen' and I love chromed wheels.

Because the RS package, at least on the V6s, make it look a lot better. The 20s mixed with the halogens on the SS kind of give it a retro look. The non-RS V6 models look just a little plain IMO.

I didn't even know about the RS package when I went shopping for mine. I certainly could have lived without it. The day I need to replace a burnt out bulb will probably be the day I swap them out for halogens. I've heard replacement bulbs are crazy expensive.

Yeah my non RS V6 looks so plain....
Yes I have done some cosmetic upgrades but nothing that the RS package would have gotten me
