Ambient Lighting

Not sure if this was posted it is blue and the blue also goes around the speedo and rpm gauges.

I was hoping for red to match the seat stitching ... The blue is the same as the current cars.

It is blue, and not nearly as bright as my 2010 2SS was. It is also a much thinner line of light. Too bad it isn't red, which I thought I read it was going to be. The blue just doesn't go as well with the red theme of the interior.

That seems wrong. I asked about this months ago and was directed to here
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=177469
where you will notice under Interior Details it says "Door and dash inserts are Carbon Flash with Red accent lighting"

The 2011 Synergy Edition had red stiching and red interior light to match.
I think someone F'd up

What color is the footwell lighting if anyone ordered that option?

Ok. Making sure I wasn't crazy. Went back and searched. Multiple threads all saying Red Accent Lighting

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...ccent+lighting
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...ccent+lighting
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...ccent+lighting

If you can't tell I am not pleased

...................and yes I know this is a small item in the grand scheme of the car but when I pay $60k+ I expect these small things to be taken care of.
I don't expect the wrong accent lighting and I don't expect badges to slide off

I thought this was an LPO (Dealer Installed) option, thus could be whatever they make the parts for. Perhaps the "ZL1 specified" package is aqua blue, but maybe you can ask them to install the 2011 Synergy edition package in?

Just a thought-

How hard would it be to change the door ambient lighting to red from blue?

PM 2SSRS, it's actually fairly simple... you would just have to change the LED really...

Thanks guys, I was kind of looking forward to red but will make my final decision after I get the car.

Just like the IOM Trim Package here, GM said **** it and gave us a blue one. People in the USA get matching Gauges....

It's everywhere not just Canada.
It is blue and TPower's photos accurately capture how dim it is.
The over spray from the carbon metallic paint on the door inserts appears thicker than on the 2SS.

As OldTimer says above it is much dimmer than on the 2SS.
I don't have both to compare but I would say the 2SS at half power is the same as the ZL1 at full.

The only positive is that it is so dark you can't see any of the red stitching so the need to match colors is irrelevant
