Ahhhh another V6 to V8 convert I did the same move in July and never regretted it. I stayed with black as my 1LT was black also. I don't care how much harder it is to keep clean. IMO a 5th gen. Camaro in black looks sick. Also it cost the same to insure my V8 as it did the V6 gotta love it

Take some pictures great color but even though not as hard to care for as black it does show every little bug on the front bumper and the dirt shows up more so you need to keep it clean to look good or get some type of force field modification for the car.I'm thinking about stripes to, not sure if I want rally or bumble bee style tough choice. Good Luck

I the SIM without the rally stripes...easy care, 2 bkt wash and blow dry or high dollar micro and you will never notice a swirl...after a black camaro, you will feel like you have enough free time for a second job!
Thanks for the advice. I'm sure you're right about the time factor... but I'm not looking for a job - just the next place to cruze!

I hear ya on the bugs. Pain in the butt no matter what the color. Just part of life I reckon.

Love your wheels! My only complaint about my new SS is the "painted" wheels I had to settle for. Salesman said he would call if a used car came in with polished wheels and we'd swap - we'll see. What brand/type are your wheels? Also, are those stock P-Zero type tires? The profile looks higher - very nice.

My wheels are American racing torq thrust m style they are 18s but they do make them in 20 also a lot of people don't like them because they look to "mustangish" but I like them and get a lot of compliments. I will admit I have v8 envy but will probably keep the v6 until the 6th gen comes out. Enjoy the SS looks great.

Yes - RS package, though I don't know that it adds much more than the HID Halo headlights. Probably could have done that on my own for le$$.

This is according to the Chevrolet site:


The RS Package for your LT or SS Coupe includes:

• 20" painted aluminum wheels in Midnight Silver, measuring 20" x 8" in front and 20" x 9" in rear.
• High-intensity discharge headlamps, each ringed with an LED halo
• Body-color roof ditch molding for a subtle but distinctive styling detail.
• Shark-fin antenna is body-color with this package.

Right. And the only one I care about is the HID/Halo headlights. As soon as I can, I'm ditching those painted wheels. They look like they're covered in brake dust, even though they are totally clean. I hate 'em.

My 2012 1LT (RS) came with the polished aluminum wheels. They had a few scrapes on them or I would have swapped them at the dealership.

Got my Heritage Grille installed today. I love it. Waiting on the retro "SS" to replace the bowtie. Quick pic below - better ones after SS installed.

Just took the bowtie off the HG - ready for the retro SS install (I kind of like it with nothing on it). Come on USPS!!!

Im a little biased but i think if you black out the part under the grill on the front fasica it would make it look so much more aggressive.

It does give it more "attitude", I must admit. Thanks for the suggestion.
