(2014) Where is the chrome strip on the front end that everyone hates?

Not sure if I've missed something, but everyone was/is making a big deal about the chrome strip on the front end...

Is that like a top trim option only? IE 2LT, 2SS???

Because I looked at a 1LS and a 2LS today, and I've seen pictures of 2 recent SS cars delivered to dealerships (don't know if they are 1SS or 2SS?)... But not of the cars I've seen so far in person, nor in recent pictures, have the chrome strip?

Did GM do away with it because of all the negativity surrounding it, or like I mentioned previously, is it an add on for the upper trim level cars only?

Well I would want the HIDs that come its the RS so it would be easier to remove the chrome strip for most.

Another piece to delete, paint, or plastidip. Just like the tail light bezels.

Now that is an interesting problem... (If we're thinking about the same part) The chrome part under the tail lights is actually behind the plastic lens of the tail lights, so you would have to paint, or plastidip that part of the lens... I think I have a decent pic that I took today on a 1LS car, but it still may be hard to tell what I'm talking about...

That chrome piece is inside the rear lights so I don't know how you would do that.

Hell NO that would mean they'd have to admit they made a mistake.
