2SS with RS Package Question

I'm interested in a Black 2SS and I'm trying to determine if I want the RS package. I originally thought that a better wheel/tire combo came with the RS, but I was told that a 2SS w/o RS gets the same wheels/tires as a 2SS/RS. If so, what do you get for the extra $1200?

The RS is advertised to include:

- 20x8 front, 20x9 rear painted wheels
- body-color ditch molding
- HID headlights
- "sinister" looking taillights
- special RS badging

Assuming the wheels are the same, and no RS badging on SS models, that leaves painted black (as opposed to unpainted black) ditch molding and the head and tail lights. Are those worth $1200? Is there anything else I'm missing?

Yeah, it's mostly the HID headlights that cost ya. I have a 2SS/RS in black, so the colored ditch moldings were not an issue, but if your not getting black, it may be. The taillight lenses are a little darker, and if you get the RS package the SS badges will be in red. Just think about future re-sale and the RS package could be a plus.

RS package comes with the MIDNIGHT Silver painted wheels. Non SS is standard 20" painted wheel, or you can upgrade to the polished 20" wheels on any package. I love the Midnight silver on my black SS.

Yea the HID's alone are $1200 bucks w/o installation. The package is well worth it, and the midnight finish is kickass especially on a Black or CGM Camaro.

I know it's not a big issue for you with getting a black car but for me getting the RS package was a must as I am getting the yellow. Having black ditch molding would of made me very unhappy with the car. Getting the extras in the RS was just extra icing on the cake for me. Good luck with what you choose!!

get the RS pkg.......the HID's alone make it worth it.......if you have never had HID's before, you need to get a test drive at night and see the difference......you will never want another car without them.

as said above, the wheel design is the same its just a different color
ive heard that the molding are just black rubber on the non-rs, and with the rs is painted body color, even with black
i personally think the standard lights look meaner, but the HIDs light the road up better and as said before, the aftermarket cost of installing them is reason alone to get the RS package
you do get darker taillights
the SS badges go from sliver to red and on the v6s they get red RS badges

you are forgetting it also comes with a spoiler although thats standard on the SS

i did it, and id buy it again

The HIDs are the main selling point here. They are expensive and hard to match in the aftermarket as far as fit and finish.

The HID lights are most of the expense, They give far better vision at night,also HID lights emit ultraviolet light that makes reflective road signs visible much further down the road than standard halogen bulbs....

I appreciate all the feedback. I didn't realize the HID lights were such a big deal... I'm now considering getting the RS package.

I am a little curious about what it costs to replace a HID bulb when it goes out. Anyone know? Is there a bulb, or do you have to replace the entire unit?

They don't really go out much. They can light up the road for years and years. I had a friend with a Lexus, whose light went out but it was defective. Fixed it for free.

I had another friend with a lexus, who was out of warranty on a preowned 350 and had to replace them, the bulb cost him 200 and the labor was 100. They had to work on it a lot because, the headlights for that car turn with the road.

I imagine if its only the bulb that goes out, it would be around that, but if that and the Halo goes out, I would expect to spend more to replace them.

But like I said, the lights last FOREVER.
