Lights on ZL1?

So for those that have taken delivery and had time to play with things, what does the front of the ZL1 look like in the different headlight modes? when are the lower lights lit in relationship to DRLs, Halos, etc?

Pics would be cool!

Thanks!

Lower lights, Fog lights are lit whenever you punch the "foglight" button on the inside of the light-control dial.

The halos are on whenever you turn OFF auto lights (turn dial full left), and manually turn on the directionals.

DRLs are on during the day when in motion, main lamps turn on when autolights detects the dark. Halos also turn on at this point.

I think I covered most situations....

Thanks for the explanation! What's funny is your signature pic shows Halos on with DRLs and I don't see in your explanation when that happens. I know on our 2010 SS, when I turn 1 click right turning Halos on, the DRLs turn off. So did that change after 2010?

You're welcome!

It doesn't.

That signature is suffering from a bout of "reflection in the lenses". The DRLs are not on.

Let me pull up a picture I took of the fog lights on with the headlights at VIR....

EDIT: Here it is....
