What color ambient lighting in ZL1?

Does anyone know if the ZL1 will have ambient lighting and if so what color it will be? With the red stitching accent, will Chevy go with red ambient lighting and maybe the red instrument gauges from the LS7 concept car? Did anybody at CF2 get a close up picture of the interior with the ambient lights? Here are couple of pics with the red gauges. The black trim around the gauges and on the steering wheel look pretty good too!

It's been confirmed as red since the debut in Chicago.

Thanks, I went back and looked it up and found the "carbon black inserts in the doors and dash with red accent lighting". What do you think of the red gauges to go with the red accent lights and red stitching?

I hope they decide to make it "pick your color" otherwise some modding will be necessary. LEDs aren't terribly expensive, and neither are the control units to run them. I have 20 seven color light strips on my bike, with a remote that changes the color & mode.

Truthfully I prefer the look of the gauges as is. The red color gauges aren't that bad though and would probably grow on me over time.

Its really gonna irritate me if it only comes in red! Why would i want red lighting if i have a blue exterior color. It would be cool even if they offered it to be the same color as the exterior of the car. IMO!

I was thinking white gauges myself, idunno about the ambient lighting around the gauges, but around the footwell area's a choose of colors
would be welcomed by me. Means a little less modding for me and done
at the factory which would be sweet.

Red interior lighting = Pontiac. It definitely should be pick your color.Could you picture a Blue, Green, or Yellow car with red lighting & stitching for that matter. It would be plain out ugly. Yellow w/ the Red would make it look like a Hulkamaniac-mobile.

I liked what I saw in the promotional ad. The lighting shouldn't get too funky with colors because in time it will grow to be a nuisance instead of a visual aid.

Soft white or a combo of soft white and very light blue in some spots.

I'm glad to hear the ambient will be red. It'll match well with the stitching inside, and help differentiate the interior from the others.

But red-faced gauges would be way too much for me. I'd swap them out as soon as I possibly could. Red IP lighting I think would be riding the comfort line...I really, really prefer blue over red (which is actually one of the reasons I prefer the Equinox over the Terrain...)

Red ambient lighting on the interior can go with any car. I feel the outside look and inside look are 2 separate things. Who you trying to impress with different colored ambient lighting anyways? For one, I can tell you that most chicks prefer the red... symbolizes passion and love

So, how would you feel about the silver/white gauges from the Camaro Black edition?

I don't think they'd fit with the gloss-black/suede/red stitching and lighting color scheme, personally.

And to be honest, I was never a fan of bright-faced gauges...I like the numbers to pop out at me - I mean I don't hate them...but I like the current "charcoal" or whatever they are...

OK, I understand. I am kind of hoping the gauges are a little different just to set them apart from the LS & SS. Being a little bit selfish and greedy I guess. I am sure the ZL1 will have everything I want and more.

So the dash will have ABL as well? If this is the case I wonder what they are using as their source of emitting the light seeing as Tyco discontinued their longer light pipes.

The speedo goes to 200mph....that's a little different.

True, just my being greedy and a little impatient. Like you, ZL1 delivery date cannot be soon enough.

Yes, I do wish the ambient lighting and maybe the stitching was to match the exterior color or customer's choice. Would be cool to mix and match the lighting and exterior color.

Do we know if the ABL is just in the doors or if it will stretch the dash?
