Unfortunately, hideaways are not going to happen. Of course, aftermarket companies could pick it up and do something nice, but reliability and cost play the entire factor here. Don't expect hideaways.

You could do both...halos and hideaways. But, GM will not be doing them. Anyone know anything about the 30% more reflective headlights? GM could always offer up some type of design that makes it look like hideaways, but without the unreliable doors. That could be a possibility.

Sorry man I like the l.e.d. headlight covers that is sweet and it makes it look mean plus you still have the halos at night when you open them up.

If I recall correctly, I hear that led's cost too much :( (they're doing all they can to make this an affordable car for us), hence the 30% more reflective headlight I just mentioned. I'm not saying that is final, as we know things change. But, remember this.

Some more thoughts, re; hideaway lights.

Besides a cost and warranty issue, much like the door handles on the concept, hide away lenses might be a headache. Camaro's that will be sold in the North East, ie; colder climates with ice & snow, have to be able to function w/o issues.

What I mean is, like the flush mounted door handles, which could "ice over", hide away lenses might do the same.

Just some more thoughts why they may not be practical.

Well true but that is why you don't buy one if you don't have no place to keep it out of the weather. I mean what is the use of have a nice car if it sets out in the weather and loses it's value and some shine to the paint. Beileve me if it was not for my dad's garage my Camaro would be out in the weather and I probably would not have made a show car out of it. Just used it as a daily driver and not bought my truck.

Agreed. They better have a good warranty on them, though.

IMO, although "hideaways" would look great, I feel they may be more trouble than they're worth, re: not working all the time, misalignment, etc..

In all honesty, I love the way the Camaro looks as is, and I don't plan on changing anything.

Maybe I'm just becoming a "old ____"??? Any more, I feel "leave well enough alone", "don't mess with a good thing", "keep it simple", and just enjoy it.
