I said the very same thing, you are saying a little while ago. I hated the rs rear bumper too! I would straight up go up to other cruze owners without the rs bumper to see if they would trade. That all changed when my fiance drove my cruze and I was in her kia. As I was behind her in my cruze, I said, "****, I have a really nice looking car!" My whole perspective changed before my eyes. I can honestly say I love my 14 rs cruze!! Good luck with whatever route you choose!!!
