You can get the kit from your dealer, or any numerous gm parts site.
I got mine from gmpartsdirect.com Part 20971891
Currently it is $279.65 + Processing & Handling: $12.95 = Total: $292.60 no shipping fee

I will be scanning the install doc at work tomorrow.

I scanned in the instructions for those interested. I only did the English, but it does come in Spanish and French.

Camaro Ambient Lighting Kit.pdf

I'm going to try and install this either tonight or tomorrow night. Pics will be posted when it is done.

It does not tell what colors they are but I suspect it will be the following
1) Aqua - to match most Camaros
2) Orange - to match IOM interior
3) Red - to match the new Synergy

I will be sure to take pics of each color too

So, the foot well pods just stick to the front of the console? Hmm.

What do you think a GM Dealer would charge for install?

Stuck at work late tonight so I will not get to install it until tomorrow.

From a Chevy Dealer accessories page
Installed $530.00
Part Only $425.00

So it looks like it would be around $105 perhaps ???

Kind of a shame this didn't come on the cars already . . . it seems nice from the description in the manual. But also, I'm not crazy about it being just an LED drilled into a random spot in the console. Somewhere centered with an even light spread in the cupholders would be nice . . . but I'll wait to see the finished pictures.

If you can, please take some good quality pics after it's installed.

By the way, you can get this for $279 from www.gmpartsdirect.com. A far cry from the dealer's $425.

It's not a random position in the cup holder, it's at 8 o'clock.

I'm more disappointed at the foot well lights being stuck to the front of the console sides. I guess it's a simple and semi-invisible solution.

So I disassembled my center console at lunch today. When I get home it will be time to drill holes and install the lights. I will be taking better pictures with a Nikon D7000 instead of my cell phone as seen below.

EDIT: replaced cell phone pics with camera pics

Maybe you can see if the cup-holder drilling could be done with just removing the side cover?

@PCOLASHAN, may ask how you did your lighting setup? It looks great! I would love to do something similar with green lights. Did you tap into the installed ambient lighting? My Synergy has green lights in the doors - I've been thinking about splicing my own setup into there - I don't know about other models, though.
