Is your Dusk Special Edition missing an advertised feature? Mine is.
 
Have a 2013 2SS Dusk Edition. The hero card and press materials all list Ice Blue Ambient Lighting. Neither the auto car I test drove, nor the LS3 I bought have the lighting. I wanted it, but the dealer said it would be $500 to add.
Tonight I read on another (non-automotive) forum a guy showing off his new ride, and he specifically raved about his ambient lighting.

Do others here with the Dusk Special Edition have it?

Thanks.

You have it...standard on 2ss's...is it turned off? Also, it's not on during the day.

Yes, the ambient blue lighting on the doors comes on the SS. The $500 option is the ambient light kit for the footwells and the cup holders.

^^This. I bought my car from our C5 rock star, Becky, and asked her about a thousand questions in the process, one of which was clarifying what "ambient lighting" referred to in the Dusk write-up. She too said it was doors only: $500 addl for optional kit as outlined above.

Ok. I have the door lighting.
The guys on the other forum said it was in their footwells too.
Since door lighting comes on 2SS trims, why does it list it as a feature on the Dusk Hero Card I wonder.

because the lighting is a different color

Missing on mine as well
 
Bought one this week and it does not have the ice blue ambient lighting either. It clearly states everywhere I have seen that it is included in the Dusk edition and never mentions that it is only in the SS. The Hurst shifter is clearly stated that it is an option only on V8 models, so you would think if the ambient lighting was only on 2SS models it would state that as well.

I have my salesman checking on this for me, but given the fact that he didn't even know what ambient lighting was, I imagine I am going to hear some typical sales bull. I think I'm going to put up a bit of a fight on this since I just bought two cars on the same day.:mad:

Ambient lighting is comes with the 2LT and the 2SS.

I have it on mine.

It appears that way from the hero card and all the advertising, but I don't see that as being truth given there are some here who don't have it, including myself, and some with what they believe is a clear reason why, such as the difference in colors. I have the 2LT and it is not in it, so I think I'm gonna push the dealership to install it as advertised and to heck with the rest of the bs explanations as to why it isn't there.

What don't you have? Do your doors not light up at night?

Thanks Chi-One. I'm gonna use that fact in my fight to get it installed in mine. LOL. Is it just in the doors, or is it in the floorboard and cup holders too?

DuskLover 06-21-2013 06:47 PM

I don't have it anywhere.

camarohwk23 06-21-2013 06:48 PM

If it is advertised you should have it. If it not a feature you have now, you should go talk to your dealer. When I purchased my Synergy Series it was advertised that it came with footwell and cupholder lighting but mine did not have it. I called the dealership right away and after checking they agreed and installed it the next day, for free of course.
