Polished wheels not available on a 2SS RS

found out today that on a 2SS you cant get polished wheels AND the RS package... :(

the RS package will have painted wheels and cant be upgraded to polished ones....

oh well... i guess you cant have everything... guess I'll have to wait for someone to make some aftermarket 21" and 22" polished ones...

and now wait begins............................................ ........................

wait until monday. The ordering site doesn't go online until then.I don't know how these people are entering anything yet. They are optional and you will be able to get them. Leave it like it is for now and have your dealer change it next week.

+1

This is the problem with people jumping the gun and thinking they are already in the system. It's not live yet so all of the features may not be working. I don't doubt that there will be bugs in the system at first, but let's see how Monday works out.

Send a message via AIM to SilverTurtle Send a message via Yahoo to SilverTurtle
on the IDL broadcast, they specifically stated that you would be able to upgrade to the Polished Wheels and get the RS package on the 2SS... wait until Monday and then go back to your dealership and change the order... if that's what you want... if what you want is the 1SS, then you're set to go... but the online order system wont be complete until Monday, so you're not going to be able to check all of the boxes until then.

on Friday, at the IDL broadcast, my dealership's sales manager was trying to build one of the cars and they were updating the system with the information during the IDL... the further into the IDL they went, the more "options" became available... my guess is that there's a ton of information and they didn't want to have to batch load it in and then have some options not work, so they were uploading a little bit at a time all the way until Monday.

no. polished is the birhgtest you can get. that is what is on the silver ss. the midnight silver(painted) is what is on the red any yellow rs v6 that you see. i have not seen if any of the other style wheels come in a chrome but it doesnt look like it.

The system is already open. I ordered my 2SS yesterday. Autobook workbench accepted the order, gave me the six digit confirmation and also a four page summary of all options orders. The WRS RS exterior package comes with midnight silver painted wheels.

I did not order the RS package.

Well honestly all you would have to do is keep the stock ones for a bit and wait for the dealer to get pull offs from another one in the style you want

I'm sure it's just a glitch in the system that has already been brought up to GM and will be fixed on Monday.

The system will be tweaked in a couple weeks to allow polished wheels with the RS package per Cheryl in the podcast if there is enough backlash about.Same for the Blue on the SS. She said she will be taking the results of the polls on the different forums with her when she goes back to try and have blue added.

Me too. I was told $5000 markup in Waikiki, but found another dealer at MSRP. I'm still working on my paperwork and will let you know when I drop the order if they throw a markup on the price.
