Anyway this is one of the very minor tweaks that Chevy missed, but no one is perfect and this is gonna be a great car.

Good Job Chevy!!!
GM didn't miss anything IMHO, I'm sure this was quite intentional. The halos replace the fogs as DL's when the headlights are off but halos are on. The fogs are not HID, the headlights are and the halos match the color of the HID's, the fogs don't match the color of them. It's set up that way so the colors don't mismatch.

I also plan on modding it to work with both, but only after I have some HID's in the fog lights or at very least some brighter & color appropriate bulbs in them.

Now it would have been better if it came from the factory with matching fog lights, but that would have cost more and not anywhere near as many people would be willing to pay more for that, most only care about the main HID's.
