No, you can't.

The SS bumper is the SS bumper wheter it's an RS/SS or standard SS.

Where are these rounded lines you refer to that did not exist on the concept. Keep in mind that what you are looking at in that picture is the production right next to the concept.
Differences

Wheels concept bigger and deeper looking
Concept looks a little lower
Concept follows v6 lower bumber plus little airlets at botoom corners but has top inlet like ss
Concept side mirrors to small and probably not very usuable
gills on sides of concept look functional

Is there any question why everyone gets tired of hearing how the few that don't like the SS bumper are against it?

I'll give them one thing, the squeaky wheel gets the grease (or however that goes). It's always the vocal minority that gets their way in most everything because they make the most noise. It's the same everywhere, especially politics... LOL
It was two threads merged.

true story: when I first saw that page of the Camaro Guide, I thought that was the SS next to the V6... not until I looked closer and saw that the side vents were open did I realize that it was Concept and V6... Scott has always said that if you weren't paying close attention, you'd mistake one for the other... and he's right.

It's cool, I just didn't want to rip his head off for anything he hadn't done. The rest of your complaint was fair game.

I'm not looking to spend upwards of $35k on a car that needs suspension upgrades and weight reductions. Looks are still killer and love everything else about it but i think i'm going to be disapointed during the test drive. I hope i'm wrong.

Well it may be designed to be the "poor man's Corvette", but that doesn't mean it is one. They may be made by the same company, but they're in totally different classes, and price ranges. Sorry, but I dont want space age tech on my car if it makes it that much more expensive. Example, the two have the same heart (LS3) but will differ by over $10k because of the amount of engineering that goes into the Corvette. If you are looking for 'Vette performance, buy a Corvette. If you want a reasonably priced car with Corvette similarities, buy a Camaro. If you want Corvette performance at Camaro cost, sorry, I don't know where to point you there. It is not fair or logical to expect world class competing performance in an average joe car.

I shall step off the soapbox now. Just tired of people nitpicking.
