Polished wheels now available for RS option?

I have read on another 'forum', that GM has decided to allow the polished wheels for the RS option...how do you go about that when ordering w/ the dealer? This is news as of today around 2pm....

You have to wait a few weeks until they make it possible in the ordering system. Just go ahead and order the car you want and then go back and make the change later.

yeah me too.... can anyone give pros and cons to each lol? If I understand correctly the polished are shinier, if you will, but i don't care too much about that. I'll be getting a silver ice exterior, not sure which (if either) would look better.

Same here... assuming polished would be almost chrome? But I saw a few pics of the midnight silver on the black car and I liked it http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8215 post# 11. Not sure which will be nicest looking.

If the Brembos are anything like my Evo then I definately want the darker color... brake dust up the ying yang!!

so if you can order them with the rs package, do you still have to pay 470 bucks or can you choose between the polished and the darker silver ones at no charge?

Can someone verify if there is a price increase w/ this polished wheel option??

How can the dealer modify this in the order that is already placed? Will there be a note in the system to show this modification?

Will it be assigned an option code?

My dealer told me he would have to cancel the existing order and place a new order and get a new order number.

Not sure about this one. I asked mine and he said that until the order got prioritize and dropped to the plant for production it could be changed. He also mentioned that on some Corvettes they have made changes after the order entered production if they could catch it before it hit the appropriate build section. Not saying I would depend on that. It might be a 1 in a whatever shot of doing.

As for the polished vs midnight silver.......

I'm thinking of keeping the MS with the RS package. My car will be black like my 68, but the brake dust on the polished wheels may be a pain. I know it is on chrome.......drive it 10 miles and they look dingy.........shouldn't be the case on the MS wheels hopefully.

I am keeping the dark wheels, I think they will look better with Cyber Gray (damn wine companies I no longer know how to spell grey gray?)

I did this at my dealership he WILL have to cancel the order, and he WILL have to place the new one to get a new order number...BUT you need to make absolutly sure that you are not loosing your spot in the allocation line that you are in. I went from a 1SS to a 2SS, had to cancel it all and get a new number and I kept my spot in line so no harm.


As for the wheels..i agree with the other few on this, I think I will be keeping the MS instead of getting the polished, my car is black with the grey rally stripes and I think it will be a good combo

Not sure if I want to take a chance w/ getting my order cancelled....may just let that polished option go.....I don't see why they just can't modify it in the system...
