Great news on Wheel Options!!!

So I was pretty discouraged that I couldnt get the polished wheels with the RS package (being that im paying for an upgrade option and cant get the wheels I want) and voiced this concern to my dealer who thought it was ****ed up too. So After a couple days debating with the factory, he was able to get them to change the order form and allow us to get the RS PACKAGE WITH THE POLISHED WHEELS!

Thanks goes out to Reliable Chevrolet in Richardson, TX

personally, I like the idea you can only get the painted wheels with the RS. it sets it off as an RS and distinguishes it.

with polished, its going to look almost like every other SS out there.

We did change the policy.

Originally, we felt that the darker wheel would set the RS apart from all other Camaros-- (and I still feel that way...)

HOWEVER -- we DO listen to our customer base -- and so we're going to change the policy -- you WILL be able to order an RS with a polished 20 inch wheel if you so desire -- please give us a few days to change the order tables!

Cool, although I am sticking with the dark color for mine, but I am glad to hear that. Scott, we know you and the rest of the team listen to us, the problem is getting the 'big wigs' to listen. Glad to see you could twist some arms.
So... whats the word on a blue SS?

'10 SS/RS

Unhappy Watered down

Its good that they listen to us but where will it stop? If i only want the halo's and body colored molding will they change it for me, prob not. I dont want all the models watered down so you cant tell the difference after awhile.
