Body-colored roof ditch moldings -My car will be black

Darker tail lamps - Can get them latter

Red SS Badge - I think the silver will look better

If it was priced less I might have got the package.

I pretty much agree with you. I ordered a black 2ss with polished wheels. The only thing the RS would have really added was the head/tail lights, and I've yet to notice the difference in the tail lights. I do like the HID/halo headlights, but they're not worth $1200 to me. I suspect that in the next couple of years someone will offer conversion kits at a more reasonable price. I might consider upgrading to the RS head lights for,
maybe, $400 or less.


I also seriously considered the 1ss (yeah, I admit I'm cheap), because I don't mind cloth seats. But I have to have the gauge pack (can be added for $300-400), and I like the homelink, PDIM, upgraded sound, heated seats, etc. so I went ahead and sprung for the 2ss after I found out that I could use the supplier and USAA discounts.

Ya I hear ya. I was thinking the same things. I can add all that stuff later and probably cheaper down the road. I"m not really one for leather seats, since we get such a temp range here. Your either sticking to them or they're freezing your plums off. So I like the cloth seats, I prefer silver emblems (thinking about blacking them out anyway, along with the bowties) And I"m gonna paint my wheels black eventually. So all the options of the RS package didn't make alot of sense to me, but I can see the appeal for some folks.

I got into my 1SS for 37k ($CDN) and that is a smokin' deal IMO. all i really wanted was the V8 manual anyway haha if they put that engine in a golf cart i'd buy it

Do you not get the bluetooth upgrade too or do all have that? I don't know but that comes in handy with a manual too! And to add think that being a factory option will give better resale value! Oh yea the ambient lights on door are awsome too!

The 2SS has the gauge cluster and leather and other options you mentioned.

The RS is worth the money for the HIDs alone, IMO.
And the darker taillights.

Wrong thread. I had another one open and I guess with it being late I posted in the wrong one.

I was reading the OP and just shaking my head like "how can people not know about the RS package" but then I saw the date and I was like "ooooh - I get it now"

Yeah, old thread, but FYI, all 2012 Camaro models now come with the darker tail lights.

I have a Black 2SS and it made no sense whatsoever to get the RS upgrade. I have yet to meet the person that can distinguish between the taillights unless the 2 are parked side by side, and tbh, I can get the same look for a couple dollars with vinyl. Roof moldings makes no difference on a black car. No one really likes the RS Rims...everyone upgrades to the polished anyways, so thats a waste. I spent the $1200 on White/Blue Oracle AAC Halos, PLasma Fogs, HOD headlamps, LED's under the hood, AND Afterburner tail light LED's. I have color coded dash mounted buttons that allow me to turn on ANY combination that I want. No "daytime running" limitations. When I roll with the AAC halos next to a Camaro with the factory Halos...no one is looking at the other car. End of story:P

All I cared about with the RS package was the HID's... it was enough incentive for me to choose RS... I could never have a camaro without the HID's, it adds so much personality to have "eye"-like headlights

I don't dislike the factory halos/HID's. In fact I do love the HID's but what happens after the warranty runs out? How much are those to fix or replace? My Oracle lights are guaranteed forever and instead of round looking Halos, they are evil looking demon eye Halos, and I can choose white or blue or both and the halos are on the fog's too. Drive what makes ya happy but it was a no brainer for me. I didn't want to have the same look as every other Camaro in the Chicago area. I havent seen any other demon eye halos and thats just how I like it

I purchased a 1SS with sun roof and auto for $34,500 new, out the door with 10 miles. (ordered it) That's $2,4500.00 off sticker. Installed my own 4 gauge instrument cluster and yes I have the silver SS insignia. 8K miles now and no prblems....great sports car.
