Halo Headlamps WITHOUT RS for the 2SS FROM FACTORY?

First, I AM NOT INTERESTED IN RETROFITTING. My question is simple. Does anyone know if:

1. I can order a new 2SS from the factory with the halo headlights (No RS Package)?. If so, anyone know how much?

2. Can dealers can install the halo headlights on the 2SS? If so, any idea how much it costs?

THe issue is, I want to get the 2SS but I HATE the way the standard headlights look, and don't want to pay $1,200 just for some freaking headlights. I also don't want to retrofit myself.

Thanks in advance y'all.

I'm sure the dealer or a reputable shop could install factory halos, but you can't order JUST the halos from GM. You would have to go aftermarket or get replacement OEM parts and have them installed. I know a lot of members on here have done so... and I would imagine being that they are a GM part, a GM dealer would install them....

You're paying for more than just headlights with the RS package...

And no, I don't believe you can.

you can buy the RS headlights and have them installed in the non RS car.....but that would cost more than just buying the RS package.

First of all welcome to Camaro5! You do have to buy the RS package to get the headlighs if i were you i would just buy the rs package the rs package includes darker tail lights body color roof ditch molding and SS emblems in red plus if you would have to get them installed by your dealer they are gonna charge you way more than $1,200 due to labor and parts!


hope this helped

Welcome to Camaro5. The dealer can install the halo's for $1,200. They have it done at the factory! Go ahead and get the RS package. If you are going for the 2SS what's another $1200? The lights are great if you are older and have trouble seeing. The lights are great if you are younger and want to be cool. The lights are great if you are middle age, too.

I was just at the dealer today for warrenty issues w/ my halo's, but the service advisor almost fell over when he saw the price of the one headlight... it was over $1100, and they had ordered left and right headlights for me, around $22-2300.

First of all, thanks to all for the replies. Sounds like I gotta go with the RS package. I'm getting a convertible, so no need for the roof molding, and the 2SS already has the 20" wheels, but I guess it's worth it nevertheless. Thanks again.

Ah, but you will also get the AM/FM radio antenna integrated into the rear spoiler and a body-color shark fin XM antenna. Without it you would have a standard whip antenna and a black shark fin.

With the SS you're really only paying for the headlights (plus whatever it costs to paint the ditch molding. The rest of the stuff you get is zero-cost changes i.e. wheels, taillamps and badges.


And no you can't get the hid/halo's w/o the RS package. And adding them afterwards will cost more than $1300 if you use GM parts...

Dam I hope those don't go out after the warranty expires.

+1

You cannot order halos without the RS Package, and having the dealer install them after the fact will cost more that the RS Package price.

I plan on getting RS package with my LT. This is my first post so be gentle Lol. I've seen different bow tie color options on aftermarket sites. Can you not get different color RS badges? I'm getting CGM with IOM stripes, and was thinking subtle changes like IOM RS badges. Could someone point this noob in the right direction?

No, you can't. You'll have to go aftermarket.
