Ok, maybe I just don't care enough about the ABL to get worried, but guys, like Zombie said, it ain't rocket science! They don't need to develop a faster processor to handle all the calculations or something. Probably just a light source issue, maybe just the wattage of it to get the right luminance, brightness. But hey, knock yourselves out. We are getting short on topics, which is a GOOD thing - less and less problems/complaints.

I can't for the life of me imagine how this would be a deal breaker for anybody, especially those who have already placed an order.

I would be disappointed, but not a dealbreaker. Like others have said, I would expect a price adjustment.

And for the record, i despise these threads because they become the source of rumors and drama, something Camaro5 has a legacy of NOT having.

Just saying I propose a lock unless we hear this is a real possibility from Scott or one of the dealers.

The Cadillac CTS has it, it's going on TWO model years. Don't understand why there would be any problems. Visit a CTS forum and no one has reported ANY problems.

Me thinks this is another nasty rumor. BTW go visit the CTS web site and they have a great demo on it.

Besides ever hear of modding? Consider the base car the canvas and add your personal touches. Besides the integrated panels and trim glow. There are superior systems out there with million color & audio plug in etc.

Besides this is indeed a silly rumor because Chinese plastic panels and led's are not a problem for GM $$$ They are "plus sell" items.

Plus sell means you have the base car and you sell extras to increase the profit. Simple business way. So I would probably file this rumor under "have you seen the Christmas light LED selections at the china marts recently". As in sarcasm to all the ships of containers and 12 hour day non stop cheap labor lines that will produce your precious glow panels... trust on that.

I got the 2LT with the RS package. Will I be getting the ABL?

Not a deal-breaker but I'm curious.

I never said I wouldn't get the Camaro if the ABL are not ready by launch, I would delay UNTIL it was ready. The Ambient lights are the main reason I chose the 2LT. The RS package for the Halos.

Like everyone else.... Wait and see what happens.

Boy you really know how to push someone's buttons. This would be the proverbial "straw" for me.

I will cancel...The 2SS/RS is the top of the line and I shouldn't have to "option" it unless I want to. There is no Z28 model and we are already having to do without HUD, full-screen NAV, white at release, not to mention the frustration of having to wait for a CGM model to be shown!

<rant start>
If that occurs, I'm not only NOT buying a Camaro....but I'm going to buy foreign. It is time for the domestic auto industry to wake the "f" up and make what consumers are asking for. Why do you think the foreign autos are so successful? Because they understand that it's the fit, finish, and extras that draw the consumer's attention.
<rant end>

And now back to our normal programming.......

All right, listen up boys.

I just got a PM from Scott himself saying that ambient lighting IS NOT CANCELED.

So stop worrying.

Yeah that would end the speculation train, for the time being at least. And to answer the OP, no I would not cancel, but I would be quite dissapointed and would expect a price adjustment.

I got a PM from Scott asking him if it was canceled and he said he could not comment at the time.

This was yesterday.

I guess I'm the only person who specifically doesn't want it. So it would be a perk for me lol. I want the leather that comes with the 2ss but would rather not have the lighting. To me it's ricerish, for lack of a better term.

Ok, so which is it?

A. It is not canceled or
B. No comment.

To me, no comment means it's possible.
