The RS package is worth it simply for the headlamps. Best driving lights (factory) I've ever experienced.

The 2010 model differences for the RS package were the HID headlights, painted roof moldings, wheels, and also the RS package gave tinted taillights.

Well worth the $1200 at the time.

Got RS and still going to swap wheels for lighter and sleeker look. RS completes the vehicle and when added into the sticker price doesn't hurt as bad. What your paying $15 on the payment each month for the RS package. Worth it but still wanting more!

So you got a $45 harness that adds the fog light switch and swaps out your DRL's for actual fog lights? I don't have a RS car, so I dont have any experience with this, but I've got my doubts. I'm betting that you've got a harness that keeps your DRL's on when your headlights are on. I spent $800 for a pair of new take-off RS headlights and $100 for an adapter harness and I've still got actual fog lights with an actual fog light switch. I'm still up $450 on the RS package, so now I'm planning on Technostalgia taillights and LED fog light bulbs.

The Roof Ditch Moulding is painted body color on RS cars. It is unpainted black on non-RS cars. The Shark Fin is painted body color on 2012+ RS cars. It is unpainted black on 2012+ non-RS cars and all 2010-2011 cars.

The only thing i know of that my 2012 Vert dosen't have that the RS package would give me is the Halo HID headlights and Bigger wheels and tires. and since I do not do much driving at night that is not a big deal and i really don't care much for the generic look of the RS wheels. Too many Cars with that style wheel out there, just look around. So not getting the RS package was not important. When paying Cash for a car the cost of the package will make a difference also.

The Shark Fin on the 2012 Vert is painted body color also without the RS package.

I'll agree with this statement. Having driven my car with both halogens and HID's, I can say the difference is night and day! (Pun intended)

Interesting. I did not know this. So all 2012+ convertible shark fins must be body color. How about 2011 convertibles? Are they black or body colored?

RS package was a must for me. Had it on the LT too.

I have only one complaint with the RS package. I wish GM offered a good all season radial option for the SS/RS 20 inch wheels. PZero is great in summer but during mid west winters they turn to stone (horrible ride and no traction). Its my daily driver so I had to get two sets of wheels and tires to survive.

I think that if you order your camaro and add the RS package it's a good deal. For me all the cars I looked at with RS packages had lots of other things added that I didn't want. I did think the RS lights looked cool but it wasn't something I really wanted.

For sure I wanted aftermarket wheels though and an LS was the perfect choice for me. I don't like any of the wheels Chevy is putting on the camaro. My plans for the stock rims from the LS was to make them into end tables and a coffee table for my man/son cave.

For me personally the lights will be the last thing I ever change if ever. My first upgrade was an rx catch can. The next is new wheels and tires. Then it will be an rx supercharger.

So for me since I didn't order my camaro I saved a lot more than $1000.00.

Here is why I didnít want the R/S package:

-When you are on a strict budget, itís was too expensive. If I got the R/S package I wouldnít have been able to afford other options. Instead I ordered premium sound, premium paint color, connections/technology package, and spare tire.

-The tire/wheel package is nice, but itís over-exposed and the tires are ridiculously expensive, summer only, and canít be rotated

- The 1LT wheels are the coolest factory wheels you can get on the 5gen Camaro, very old school (think Gen3), and the lightest

- I actually prefer the black molding on the roof

- My fog lights work (and I can turn them on/off as I please)

Here is what I like about it:

- when added to a V-6, it makes it look almost identical to a V8

- the Halos are cool

- Cant you go like 155 mph in a V6 with the R/S package?

You must have a V6. This is not a problem with the V8. They don't last until winter.
