SS badges for 2014 Camaro?

I am awaiting delivery of my 2014 Camaro in about 3 weeks. It's a 2SS but unfortunately cars delivered to dealers outside the US do not bear any of the badges. Even the headrests don't have SS embroidery. Anyway, my question was whether somebody can let me know of a place I can buy them. I've seen them on eBay but I'm not sure how the badge on the front grille attaches. Is it just glued on or is there a special frame holding it? As for the back, that's easier but I wasn't too sure about the front and if there's a place selling them I'd much rather buy them both together as opposed to one from eBay and the other one from another vendor. Thanks in advance

Regards,
Stan

Woah, those are a bit pricey. OEM badges go for 23 bucks on eBay

Oh and it all seems that I need some kind of a plastic bracket that attaches to the grille itself and then the badge is put on that bracket. I've found one on eBay but no clue whether it will fit the new 2014 grille

I've no idea. There's no SS branding at all. As I mentioned above, not even headrest embroidery. We don't really have much to choose from. The only Camaro available from the dealers in Bulgaria (and probably most EU countries) is a full optioned out 2SS. Only options I had to choose from were sunroof and leather interior color...Everything else, leather interior, Sat Nav, HUD, RS package, polished wheels and all that kind of stuff, comes as "standard"

That's changed then since I bought my UK spec in October 12 (2013 model 2SS). Options were colour, stripes, manual or auto, polished or painted wheels, coupe or convertible, sunroof. Think that was pretty much the lot. Sat Nav was not available

Yes, sorry about that, I did have the option for the gearbox and color and coupe of convertible, although colors selection was very limited.

Anyway, anybody got any input on the badge?

I just bought the ss badge for my 2014 2ss/rs and the bracket for the grill emblem is the same from 2010 to 2014. Bought both bracket and emblem from ebay. Genuine GM. Fits perfect! Why we here in europe doesn't get the ss badges/stitching is simply because Adolf, Germany and the 2 world war. SS logo I banned in germany. Simple and stupid as that. Im really bummed out about the stitching on the headrest. The recaros looks so empty here in europe!!

Ah, you lucky bastard. We don't even get the Recaros as an option in Bulgaria. All I get is the standard leather seats.

Is the lack of any SS designation really because of the whole SS crap during the WWII?

I find that difficult to believe. Let's not forget that our pals across the pond played a massive (crucial) part in WW2 and it hasn't stopped them using it (and why should it ?).

It's surely far more fun taking the "GTi Twin Turbo Nitrous Oxide GXL Superfast" badge off the back and replacing it with "L or Base Model" but then ripping every boy racer that wants to have a go.

TRUE STORY - I had a base Sierra 1.6 company car many moons ago. I was bitterly disappointed coz I wanted the L spec. I got a silver coated plastic Christmas cake decoration which spelled out Happy Christmas. I cut the Happy off leaving just Christmas and stuck it on the back of my shite base model Sierra. The MD at the time, once he'd seen this, asked why the badge on the back said Christmas and with great delight I advised him that it was a Noel. That's the God's honest truth !!

The head rest is easy on the stanard seat to remove and only cost me 75 US to have stitched. The shop downloaded a jpg from the internet and did a test pattern and let me see it before stitching the head rest. Im not sure how hard it would be to remove your head rest but if its to difficult I will be willing to take the seats off your hands.

Could be. But germany is the largest car importer in europe or at least one of the largest and the ss logo is banned there. Therefore gm saves a buck or two and debadges all the european cars.
