Can this be done on the 2SS ?

hey guys , i ordered a 2SS with the rs package but my dealer brought me the 2SS without the rs package by mistake ! so they told me to wait another 3 months. and i waited enough , honestly the only thing that i liked about the rs package is the HALOS and the taillights , am thinking of ordering them and get it installed .. is the package available for sale ? if so , any links where to order them ?

and am i gonna be missing something with rs package in the interior ?

you'll miss roof ditch modling (exterior black lines above the doors) being body colored, midnight silver rims, darker tails, and the Red SS badges.

All those are exterior things though.

You can order them online, that is what I plan on doing at some point. Not sure if they're plug and play though. I've heard they might not be.

You can order aftermarket halo and hid headlights ( think AACstyle has them). You can also tint the tails yourself. You can buy emblems too ( Emblempro has these). About the only thing you cant do easily is the roof ditches. Color matching those could be a chore.

It will never be the same as factory i would wait and or find another car, you can get one quicker than 3 months. The GM ones are not directly plug and play and if you get aftermarket ones they won't be as good of quality.

Exactly ! Am not considering any aftermarket halos and HID , the rs headlights and taillights is the best option am looking for ,

but :( too bad that they aren't plug and play other wise i would order them right now , why would they put them on sale - the rs package - if they don't fit in the 2SS ?

and I CAN'T WAIT ANOTHER 4 months , damn you dealer .. :@

Start doing a search for the car you want at dealerships around the country and on Ebay. I bet you can find one like you want before the 4 months is up, at the price you want.

IMO, spend the $1500 (RS pkg) on painted stripes and a new exhaust... the impact is worth WAY MORE than the RS package.

Painted stripes could possibly hurt resale, they are permanent and if someone does try and sell their car they are not original. The RS package is original and will always help resale value as it is a original option. Just a small point, it can be argued both ways some people myself included wouldn't own this car without the RS package and some people could care less.

The reason the halo's aren't plug n play is becuase they are actually lit by a gas (high intensity discharge) and the whole system would have to installed in order for them to work. For those of you who have the RS package, put your hand on the top of the driver side front fender about 2 feet away from the windshield and have someone flick your brights on and off. You can actually feel the shutter open and close to release more gas to make the headlights brighter...kinda cool IMO.

Connectors don't match. So unless you want to cut up your new car, just reorder. I can't believe that your dealer can't find another dealer to trade with.

i heard that , not a problem for me .. here in Kuwait - Middle east - price for the 2SS is $47,700 and with the RS package " its $50,500 " .. so the RS HID kit and the taillight in gmparts seems worth it i think they about $1,900 for the 2 kits "RS HALOS/HID & Taillights"

not a problem for me since camaros are rare here , i just need to know if the RS HID / HALO kit works on the 2SS without problems can you help me with this ?


i planing to install these kits :

the RS tail lights should be a direct swap, but the RS headlights would take some serious modification to make them work. not only will you have to change the light switch inside, but you'll have to rewire the harness to get the correct signals to the correct lamps. the body control module would have to be changed to recognize the lighting/switch/wiring changes. on top of that, you won't have the RS option on your build sheet, so that hypothetically makes your modifications 'worthless' for resale value. i know finding the right car in Kuwait might be a pain, but it's probably your best & definitely easiest option

I am sorry that I have not read through the whole thread yet....I know I know...

But, we tried pricing out this whole package. It CAN be done....but for WAY more than the grand that it costs to put it in at the time of ordering.

I hate to say it.....but the RS package is worth it for the headlights ALONE. Just reorder...

How can it be done?? do you somehow reprogram the control body?? I think i could rewire the harness to get the correct signals...its the the body control module that has to be changed to recognize the lighting/switch/wiring changes what worries me. I think you would still need another switch to use them. I would really like to try to install the factory ones if possible?

Look around to see if you can find what you want but if not Order again and make the dealer pay for his/her mistake or find another dealer. IMO

It also converts your fog lights to DRL. Anything can done, but this isn't just switching out the lights.

Can you find/buy a Camaro State-side and have it shipped?
