I think for the amount of money it's a very good deal. Especially considering the price of getting the halos and HIDs is almost the cost of the entire package. Although I do think the foglights should come in HID as well.

I wouldn't change a thing about it.. and its a fairly decent price for wheels/HID/spoiler alone.

Love the lights/tails. Also wanted the darker silver rims on the black. Well worth it for my situation.

I dont care for the wheels and dont like having to pay an additional $420 for the polished wheels. I would like to see the polished wheels with the RS package.

I'm not complaining because I'm so happy with it all around.

If it were me though, I'd have put something on the rear that stood out as different over and beyond the tail lights. It's just not that noticeable. Different spoiler or maybe tail light molding. Something. Wheels imo should have been a different design and not just color.

But, like I said, I like it the way it is, just would have been cool to make the RS stand out a bit more.

It was a great deal as-is - the only add would be the "RS" embroidery on the headrests for the V6 trim (though Embroidery Plus in Pueblo CO did an outstanding job on mine and others)...

I mainly got the RS added to my SS just for the Halos and HID.

I did not add the RS to my 2SS Camaro. I'm not a fan of the Halo Lights. To me a proper RS has hidden headlights.

My opinions asside, the RS package adds a great deal to the V-6 camaros.

I'm with PQ on this one, RS is good, but they could have made it that much better, with say, body colour taillight surrounds. A slightly different tail.
But it is pretty good.

Yup. If you get the SS, all you really get are the headlights and a little darker tails.

The rest comes with the SS. Esp the 2SS as far as the RDM

(ya i know the color of rims but it isn't that different, not even noticeable to people unless they are side by side with a non-RS)

I think it should come with the "Heritage Grill" then I would have ordered it...

Yes, hide-a-ways would have been SWEEEEET. I actually preferred the "old school" look of the base headights and need all season tires, so I passed on thr RS package and added a rear spoiler. I do think tey should have has RS embroidered headrest too.

I'd rather see the package go ala carte. I'd like to order HID but don't want that tied to summer only tires. It means switching to winter tires where normally I can run HP all-season tires year round.

The body colored roof ditch molding adds a lot to the car, especially on colors that are not dark.
