RS Tails

Can anyone see the real difference in the RS taillights? Maybe I'm nuts but I don't see anything?

I think a darker tint is the only real difference on the rs but I could be wrong.

They are darker due to a different lens treatment. They look really nice.

Question RS Badging

Ok I ordered a 2SS Cyber Gray with Black Rally stripes. What is the deal with the RS Badging on the RS Package ? I don't want mine to say RS it's a SS. I know this sound trivial, but hey

This is the wording:

RS Appearance Package (WRS)
(Available on 1LT , 2LT , 1SS and 2SS)
n 20-inch Midnight Silver painted aluminum wheels
n High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps
n Body-color roof ditch molding
n R ear spoiler (1LT and 2LT models)
n R S unique taillamps
n R S badging
2010 Camaro Package CONTENT

From the way I take it, the SS will be on all SS cars....with or without the RS

SAME HERE...I think the RS package got way toooo expenxe of the SS models! It is a better deal on the 2LT....it only cost $250 more and you get 20's and the spoiler that are standard on the SS!

Don't worry. Your car will have SS badges. All RS/SS cars will have red colored SS badges. All SS cars without RS will get silver SS badges.

I want HID's but if it is going to be $1200 for it plus some wheel paint and and some darker tails, I don't think it would be worth it. Plus I want it in black so the body colored ditch molding I would be paying for nothing. I am just wondering for how much I can get a set of halos, HID's, and ballasts to replace the halogens on my future 1SS. Though the Camaro in MY Own Worst Enemy looks sick with the halogens, I am largely undecided on what I will do.
I'm not going to complain anymore because this car is a STEAL for 30,995! Plus all my friends are in disbelief of its low price.

The silver SS at Indy had red RS badging and NO SS badges????

That was because it was originally an SS reconfigured to look like an LT/RS.

My question is, can't you just replace the headlamps with the HID's? How much could that possibly cost?

Wait for the aftermarket. They have HID's for 4th gens so I'm sure we will be able to get them as well!

Just to clarify, you are talking about the red car that was at Indy. It looked like an RS but had a V8. I asked Scott if I could buy it because it would make a great sleeper!

And halos, and the interior switches to turn the halos on, plus wiring - if you want halos of course... otherwise about $400 for a quality HID retrofit kit, $250 for a cheap one

Wait.... I thought the SS/RS would have a Red RS badging? From all the pictues I've seen anyway. I really hope your right!

HID kits for the G8 are $140. I'm not sure what to do. I ordered a 2SS with polished 20's but I really want HIDs and the tail lamps. I figure I'll get both of those afterwards.

Just a reminder to anyone thinking about getting aftermarket HID's - your car will look nothing like the factory RS cars:

A) You will not have the Halo lights
B) Your DRL's will still be the signal lights when factory RS cars will have the fog light DRL's
c) Any retro fit of the factory set-up will be a nightmare since it also requires a special headlamp switch to handle headlights, parking lights and halos.

It's a very reasonably priced option from GM. If you want it, go for it!
