I always try to avoid parking with my front hanging over the curb as much as possible. I see so many people damage their front bumpers that way cause they always do it and then one day come upon a curb that is too high. Poor Camaro.

Weird, it doesn't have any emblems on it.

Not even the chevy logo on the front grill.

Anyways, I love the car.

Little confused, they are still releasing a version in 09?

I think there is much confusion about the packages and so forth. There is no RS bumper.. From all the information I have gathered so far with the unveiling of the packages. There are two bumpers.. One for the V8 and one for the V6. If you order a V8 with the RS package, the bumper will not change from the picture you see in this thread on the convertible. In fact, it won't say RS but the SS will be colored red on the front grill and you will get halo's.. So in other words, the standard V8 bumper and RS V8 bumper remain the same no matter what package you order.. The same goes with the V6 RS... The bumper stays the same with both the standard V6 and RS as you have seen in all the pictures of the unveiling last week... There may still be enough time to change the options and allow people to order a specific bumper on the V8, however at this point it is highly unlikely..

It's a pre-production version of the V8/RS convertible. That is why it has no emblem and it is unpolished. There hasn't been an unvlieing yet with the convertibles as there was with the V6/RS (US) and V8/SS (Australia)

so wait a minute. the v6 rs package we saw with the halos and the nice concept bumper is not the same rs package with the v8? so the v8 has the same bumper with the rs package, as the ss has? so the only thing different in the rs and the rs/ss is the headlights and tailights? i dont think thats right. i think they already said that the rs/ss would get the same bumper as the v6 rs models we have seen(red,yellow)

BUMPER DOES NOT CHANGE WITH THE RS PACKAGE!!!

All V6 models will have the bumper we've been seeing on the red and yellow cars. And all V8 models will have the same bumper we've seen on the silver and black cars.

The RS package ONLY adds enhanced tailights(pseudo-afterburners), HID+Halo headlamps, 20-inch specific rims, RS badging, and the SS spoiler.

Now, as for accessory facias, or aftermarket; that's anyone's guess. But the RS package DOES NOT change the bumper on the car. All clear, now?

After looking at the pics of all the different Camaros, it looks like GM was hoping to have the Camaro as the next K.I.T.T in Knight Rider since there's no more Trans Ams. That air intake near the hood looks like it was made for those red lights on the 80's TA.

so the v6 bumper that we have been seing on the red an yellow( like the concept) only stays on the v6? and its not an option (that we know of) on the v8? i think that bumper on the v6 looks a hell of alot nicer on the car than the one the black ss has. it looks just like the concet bumper. man this is kinda disapointing.

Everyone was saying that they wanted clear differences between the V6 and the V8. It's funny that so many V8 guys want to look like V6 drivers now.

not necesarilly the case that v8 drivers want to look like the v6 drivers. its just the v6 rs bumper looks like the concept and in my opinion it looks a hell of alot nicer than the v8. i dont like the bottom opening of the bumper compared to the rs package.

considering that there is a closed filter box on the intake im sure thats NOT the case. and that on most closed filter boxes there is a small area where the air comes in at. so the bottom part of the bumper definately has nothing to do with letting more air in to the motor. if anything its to cool the giant radiator that is right in front of the motor.
