Bump.


Everytime I look at an LS model, it looks better and better.

Is it just me or does anyone else think the backend doesn't quite look finished with the rear diffuser finished in plastic instead of painted to match?

I think one of the first cosmetic mods I'll be doing is getting the rear diffuser painted to match or at least painted gloss black so it doesn't stand out so much and look cheap.

Those steel wheels look "Horrible"!!!,Cheap,Ugly,Discusting,Pathetic! Come on GM,what were you thinking???If i didn't know any better,i'd say it is a marketing ploy designed to sway a potential buyer away from buying the base LS Camaro and sway them to spend more money to upgrade to the LT model/RS package.

heck,even aftermarket wheelcovers would be a improvement to those wheels.

Easy man. To each his (or her) own. Many people feel those wheels are a throwback to the 60s era wheels. That's why there are options.

Agree with you, it dont look rite on a black car, like you said it looks "unfinished" I will be painting this also.

The black wheels bite. Rim/tire size look odd.

But the black car looks great and overcomes the assy wheels.

That kid's SO LUCK! He can't even see over the dash and got to sit in it! I traveled 120miles, paid money and only got to see it from 5ft away on a podium! :(

IMO the wheels would look ok for the base model (and cheap snow wheels) if solid black, two tone can look good but it's generally a bad idea on wheels.

It appears as if the LS will have black mirrors and door handles!

Yep, you're right...as long as you order a black LS.

Mirrors and handles are body color, regarless of trim level.
