Hey Mike?

How does that car feel compared to your car before you sold it?

Slow... I guess I can say that in here where the trolls wouldn't dare come. That's an easy fix on this car so not too concerned. The ride and handling are not even comparable as you hear from everyone.... I did run though 3 shifts without lifting tonight. Scared the crap out of the wife... I think I can get used to it pretty easily...

and I think Auto would have been the faster choice..

Installed FieldGoal00 DRL harness

Got my harness in the mail way before I got the car... just got some time last week to do the install.

This version keeps my halos on all the time while in auto. For the DRL's there is a line that I ran to the dash and put a button next to the light switch so I can turn them on or off at anytime day or night. Fogs work the same w/ the push button in the center of the light dial.

So basically I can run any combination of all the lights at any time of day/night with the exception of the halos being on all the time no matter what.

Here are some before and after pics...

Before - in Auto mode simulating at night
Name:  Capture.JPG

Before - switch on turn to the right. Parking lights and tail lights are also on.

Name:  Capture7.JPG
Views: 630
Size:  96.9 KB

After - Auto mode Simulating Night - fog switch off
Name:  Capture8.JPG
Views: 637
Size:  39.2 KB

After - Auto mode Simulating Night - fog switch on
Name:  Capture9.JPG
Views: 633
Size:  34.7 KB

After - Auto mode Daytime - fog switch on
Name:  Capture91.JPG
Views: 649
Size:  32.9 KB

I know I do need to get the lights matched up... Fog bulbs coming soon and the P13 plasma DRLs I have don't quite match up either... but most of the time I'll be running like the last picture except fogs off. The default is pretty much halos only which is what I was after.

Hey Mike,
I just wanted to drop in to tell you I was #2 on my dealers ZL1 list and they got their 2nd allocation so I ordered one just like #23 except with the auto. They were supposed to get 2 - 2012 modles but this one gonna be a 2013 which I wasn't too thrilled about. I originally passed on it since it's gonna be a 2013 and the 3rd guy backed out and they didn't have anyone else so they called me back and had me come in and order it like I wanted and it's mine to refuse. Still up in the air about it and have 8 -10 weeks to decide. Decisions, decisions.... LOL

If I was sure I could have gotten one by C5 Fest I would have ordered exactly what you are. Hate to say it, but I do prefer the auto even though this is a big upgrade over the SS.

I'll trade you once you get it...
