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!!!

Any wiring schematics yet? Thats always helpful. A component locator would be good too.

I also will be waiting for some sparky to figure out how to get the driving/fog lights on the 2SS/RS to work with the Halos or a switch that would independently turn on and off the fog/driving lights.

TLSTWIN, that's easy, I'll post it up as soon as I get my car, I'll jumper the hot side of the side marker/halo lights relay to the hot side of the fog lights relay. It's that simple. I've done it on every car I've had that came with foglights

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.

I personally would rather be able to controll them separatly still.

As would I, but if it is a simple and easy connection, I might be good with that...

Why does it say subwoofer NA, I thought there was supposed to be an option to hook up a sub.

I'm sure the fog's will be an industry standard size. I might look into something like Silverstars to just match the HID color first, but will probably just go with a slim HID upgrade kit since it's already got that convenient battery terminal post in the engine bay.

What about a car alarm?

Can i install a viper car alarm? my dealership told me that i shouldn't because the wiring is different and they are compatible and that gm hasn't even made a alarm system for the camaro so we should just wait till they make one

I think its kinda a bunch of crap what do youll think?

I think you can install anything you want. We have the info of how to wire it, so why not install something to protect your investment?
