If they are like the ones on my Sky and HHR you can turn them off, but you have to each time you start the car...

the black one is a SS/RS, so it has the red SS badge. if you see halos & a mail slot, it's a SS/RS

I'm glad I went with black. That looks awesome on the road. Mine will have CGM stripes though. Wonder when we will see some Maros with stiping? I know many on this site haven't made up their mind on color or stripe color. It would help a lot if we we're to see some before orders get locked in.

The Foglights are the daylight running lamps on an RS-equipped cars. The Halo rings don't put out enough light to qualify as DRLs.


...IIRC, the Halos are manually-activated totally separate from the rest of the lights...which, imo - is badass!

if the halos are on a separate switch & the DRLs are deactivatable, i don't see why not. i'd imagine that was the original idea, but, like Dragoneye said, they don't put out enough lumens to qualify for the DOT requirements

Aren't the halos set up as the parking lights? I thought I read that somewhere...
