My green 97 had the gold emblem package. They muffler tips were polished though. I've seen the gold muffler tips on white SC's. It didn't look bad on my car. I liked it.


Here's a couple pics of it.

I still have the full gold package on my white '93 including the gold tips. I'm just too lazy to do anything about it.

You mean the gold tips add performance? My 96 has the gold package, and doesn't have heated seats, nor did it come with chrome wheels. And as far as I can tell, the only thing different on my mufflers are gold tips.

My 97 came with gold emblems but painted wheels and chrome tips. I think a lot of the gold was done at the dealer from what I have heard.

I have to agree with Scott. I was in the car business awhile back and we had vendors come do the gold package. Some of the gold packages did come from the factory, but very few. They did the following things: exhaust tips, antenna housing tip, some center caps, all three emblems, and pinstriping. Ususally charged the dealer 250, mark up was around 50-75% for the customer. This was over 10-15 years ago when gold was in.

Yeah I have gold exhaust tips too. I wonder what the best way to tell if it was factory or not is? No pin-striping though thank god

My SC came with gold package, but no Nakamichi stereo, heated seats, or traction control. I tried to polish the emblems once and they turned purple so I got chrome emblems to replace them.

According to my car's records, it was $1,000 for the gold package.

Gold package on pearl white always caught my attention. This is my SC on the drive from Albaquerque New Mexico, to So. California through a snow storm the day I got her.

I don't think the gold package on my car is factory since the Antenna base and exhaust tips are not gold, And this one is fading. But it does have heated seats.
