OMG ABL!!

No,there are no pics of ABL here, this is a response to all the comments about how the orange ABL looks with the low quality pic shown. Here are 2 pics taken with the same camera about 30 secs apart. Note one is much darker than the other. Same camera, different settings. Wait to judge how ABL looks once you've seen it in person, period.





As a side note, this is my first post here, been trolling (lurking, whatever)on these forums for awhile. The orange ABL picture issues made me post for the first time.

And for the record. I'm wanting a 2SS/RS IOM w/ silver rally stripes and IOM interior. And I'm buying a MUSCLE car for the MUSCLE not the pretty lights.

Sorry to those who I tricked with the title of this thread but I knew if you saw "OMG ABL" people would come running. Sorry to get any hopes up. Just be patient better pics of ABL will come out.

Thanks for the demo of the camera settings making all the difference. I was going to make something like that myself but you beat me to it.

As an aside, a lot of people are going to side with you and say they don't buy a car for the pretty lights and only care that it's a V8 or a Camaro, etc. While I think there's nothing wrong with this opinion, I think it's an opinion that won't be shared by enough people to sustain the car over the long haul.

Look at some of the threads comparing the Camaro to the 370Z and the Genesis coupe. I see a whole lot of people leaning to these other cars and away from the Camaro based on just the sort of minor details that die-hard Camaro people dismiss as trivial.

Would I buy a Genesis because the headlights move around to point in the direction you travel and up and down to let you see farther when going up or down hill? No. But I'm not going to dismiss this as a frivolous option just because it's a new gizmo. I'd love it if the Camaro had moving headlamps and I'd be disappointed if they announced that it would have them on the 2010 and then made them only half work or took them off the car completely like ABL on the dash or the HUD, etc. More options is better in my book, and judging by what typical customers are pointing out as advantages of competitors cars I think we need all the frivolous gizmos we can get.

Anyhow, thanks for posting the photo comparison!

i believe the proper term is lurking not trolling.

but i really like the difference of those pictures. the other thing to think about with ABL is without being in the car you have no real idea the illumination of the car.

Good point.

I have seen the ABL in the IOM interior and liked it. I also commented that ABL on the dash would be a distraction and that the dash looked awesome without it.

Was ABL a make or break factor on my 2SS purchase? NO!

The 426 HP was.

ABL is an accent, not a necessity in a 2010 muscle car. I remember my 68 Firebird 400 HO could have come optional with a tissue dispenser and vanity mirrors.

Why?

Did you ever hear some guy saying I aint buying a 68 Firebird because he couldn't get vanity mirrors and a tissue dispenser?

If I was worried about blowing any OP SEC, I wouldn't have posted it.
