They're an option for the RS cars, my '17 has them as well.

Congrats on the purchase, looks just like what mine would've been when stock. I'm sure you'll love the 6th gen, I've fallen in love in just a few weeks.

You're right, Hyper Blue is definitely the best color by far.

Here's mine (selfless plug haha)

RS adds 20s with Run Flats, blade spoiler, LED lights(front & back) and chrome strips in grille area. Oh & painted shark fin too. My BIL's 2015 2ss had black fin.

Yeah , you hated the sixth gen bad and you’re buying one now, soon you’ll be buying the refreshed sixth gen when you hate the 7th gen bad. And so on and so on.

welcome to the HBM club. still drive my 5th gen quite a bit, still love the m6, hood scoop and the mail slot still makes the front of the car look mean.

but...the 6th gen is much more refined, light and super fast.

Congrats and welcome to the HBM club! This color what the exact color I was looking for after owning a rare Aqua Blue Metallic 2010 5th gen Camaro. I just had to have it.

Your new ride might have just 12 HP over the 2013 model, but it also lost several hundred pounds of weight compared to your 5th gen vert. No doubt it is much quicker!

Enjoy.

Never hated the 6th Gen, just attributes that I saw that was silly. Again let me recap....

Stupid seam on quarters, most especially on light colors.

Pinched too small grill, barely able to fit bow tie and gigantic lower grill.

Kiddie sized steering wheel.

I warmed up on the 6th Gens, over the last 2.5 yrs. Especially since VW screwed me over this summer on the Passat I wanted. I wanted to trade my Vert in since Chevy didn't know how to diagnose.


Got a dark color to minimize the stupid ill placed quarter seam.

The front grew on me, looks more modern. The chrome strips add to the sea of blackness.

And the Kiddie sterring wheel is okay since the whole inside is smaller. The flat bottom is cool & especially with the RS badge.

Yeah, the fender arch is more pronounced than the 5th generation. Maybe the 7th generation will have C3 Mako arches.
Thanks!
