It would be cool if it was like a regular NAV only it appeared in front of you like a HUD.

New member here, this is my first time to post. I have owned 4 Camaro's, 79 Z/28, 82 Z/28, 83 Z/28, and 2002 SS. My last 2 Camaro's have been black, and from the pictures of the new Camaro, Black looks awesome. But having owned black for 25 years, that is a color I no longer wish to take care of!!! So I have ordered a 2SS in Silver Ice Metallic.

I'm trying not to get dumped as a thread jacker here, but it appears that almost everyone as ordered the RS package to go along with the SS package. When that happens, you then have to upgrade to the polished wheels, or you are stuck with the darker color wheels, which don't look very good to me.

So, that really leaves only the HID headlamps and the change in tail lights as what you get to add the RS package to the SS. Are they really worth it? I had no intention of adding the RS package, as I personally like the looks of the silver SS emblem over the red RS emblem, but now I am trying to determine if the HID is really worth the cost, to then suffer with the red RS emblems.

Also, does anyone know when a Camaro will hit a dealer in Kansas city?

first off, welcome to the site anything you can't find with the , feel free to ask. you'll most likely get some answers pretty quickly!

for your questions, if it's any consolation, you also get body-colored roof ditch moldings (instead of black). the SS/RS also gets a red SS badge instead of silver. as far as being cost-effective, it's a steal. if you were to get all those parts aftermarket (the HIDs, the darker tail lights, wheels, spoiler, & painted roof moldings) it would cost much more & they wouldn't be covered in the manufacturer's warranty. i've got no clue about where demo units will be... sorry.

If you don't like the red SS emblems just go to your parts guy and have him order a set of the silver ones.. swap them out then you got the best of both worlds. I would say 2 emblems will cost in the neigborhood of 60 bucks retail and if you get in good with your parts guy you may bea able to get them at dealer cost

Because they are not the DRL's they are your parking lights, look see the side markers are lit up, wouldn't be lit up if just the DRL's were on....
at least thats my theory, because on both my Sky and HHR if you turn on the parking lights the DRL's go off, and the side markers come on...
