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.
