RS Appearance Package - available on LT and SS

HID headlamps with "halo ring"
Rear Spoiler (LT only - SS already has it)
20-inch 5-spoke wheel with Midnight Silver paint finish
RS-unique tail lamps
Body-color roof ditch molding
RS badging on driver's side grille and passenger side trunk lid

When combined with SS, SS badging becomes red instead of silver.

what does Body-color roof ditch molding mean?
That's a little bit hard to explain without a picture lol.

There's a ditch molding on the sides of the roof that is even with the corners of the front and rear windows and runs the length of the roof.

Normally it's black, but on RS models it's body color.

You can kinda see it in this picture:



Look on the sides of the roof, you can see the body color molding running the length of the roof

I think the SS guys who choose the RS option are getting jipped because they already paid for the 20 inch wheels and the spoiler. Give them something more....

Im happy with the subtle nature of the RS package. It has all the stuff that we wanted from the concept, but has given us the option to have it.

People who want a somewhat stripper car can have it. The RS package prolly doesnt add significant weight tho.

I love the afterburner taillights and halos. I know for me, that the RS package is a must on my SS.

Plus it will make Momma Jinx proud. Her first car was a Red Camaro SS with Rs option.

The RS V-6 and the SS will almost be impossible to tell apart. WTF:mad: , they are pushing the V-6 a lot harder than the V-8. That is whats wrong with this world.:screwy:
The front bumper is different I believe. and the SS will have SS stitched into the seats.

Buy the HID's when parts become avail. Save a bit of cash on monthly payment. The SS already will have the spoiler.

Not sure about you...but I am entertaining ideas about new wheels already.
I don't want to look like everybody else.....even thought the 20's are cool. Besides.....20x8 and 20 x9's are a bit small. I'm thinking more like 20x9's and 20x10.5's....:O)

As for the molding...gimme a break....if you really want that.....have them painted later.

I need to see what the tailights will look like to make my judgement on it....but you could buy it later too if you decided that's your thing. Would prefer silver SS badging to Red anyday.

Is that all you get with the RS package?

Depending on the cost...may not be worth adding.

Just my .02

Perhaps because of that the RS package on an SS will cost less than on an LT?
That would be good to see.
I don't think they can based on how you buy a car at a dealership. You usually start with a base model and then add RPO numbers to it. The salesman would just say 'this much' for the SS option and 'this much' for the RS option. He would not care (or know the difference) about what you get when you pick an option.
