I'm surprised to see them available already. Guaranty must have gotten their stock car real early, and now free publicity from BFXenon.
So, Zombie, are you going to be the guinea pig and give 'em a try? I'd be leery. That's awfully cheap, maybe too cheap.

I've never seen after market kits that are worth a crap for cars, I'm sure they are out there but generally speaking you get what you pay for and good quality is going to be expensive 2 or 300 bucks usually doesn't get it done. I spent 300+ on a Hi/Lo HID kit for my bike and have no complaints but thats for my bike i imagine it being less costly to do than a car. I paid 300+ for halo's on my civic just halo's and they lasted about a year and started giving multiples problems, my friend spent same money for same headlights on his civic a different brand and they went bad quicker than mine did. Everyones been bashing the RS Package and saying go aftermarket but I wanted HID and HAlo's and I wanted them done right. Which for me means let the factory do it.

Nope, I'm getting an RS. Just providing a public service.

Oh, and I went to 3300 on the 8th. You?

I bought a set for my last car from here: http://www.cqlight.ca/

Good quality....and YES, I had to re-aim them down, but I had more light and NEVER had the need to use the high beams. I'd do it again!

I wouldn't touch the fog light package with a ten foot pole. The website said they had to be "siliconed" in place. If it was me, I wouldn't be gluing bulbs on my brand new camaro.

And there are tons of H13 HID kits on ebay for under $100.

besides being illegal and blinding oncoming drivers, the kit looks great!

If you guys wanted HID's you should have gotten the RS package.

why you surprised all you do is plug it in and change bulb all they had to do is figure out which connectors to clip together that they already had

headlight technology and wiring is basically the same for any manufacture that's why you can go to auto zone and pick up a replacement bulb that fits your car and a lot of others as well

I told you guys that the aftermarket would shine on the Camaro. This part will help LS owners keep up with the RS package, and it will help those whose order for the RS package get theirs. This costs less than the RS package, and that means that buyers who want HIDs for function and don't need the other RS package components. It is good to see the aftermarket jump on the Camaro.

People on the site should not provide any negative feedback for aftermarket parts for a while. We want the aftermarket to embrace this car, so we need to embrace the aftermarket, even if it isn't what we expect right now.

If you don't have construction feedback, then feed your feedback back up your backside.

Sorry, but I would hate for people to get misled that they can skimp on the RS package and get headlights that are as good. The aftermarket stuff will always be sub-par, and often times create issues. And in the case where you have to glue your fog lamps in, it will probably void your warranty.

That is my "construction feedback".

We also offer a whole 4.5" round replacement HID for the foglight... the retail cost is just more.

The replacement fog light kit that we offer is also D.O.T. approved. If you dont want to have to silicone the bulb in.

The reason for that, is because there is no 5202 bulb cast made yet...anywhere! This was the best replacement for the housing without comprimising the integrity of the housing.

That test car confuses me, why oh why would you pop for 4k + worth of rims and 2k+ worth of body kit and not just get the RS package. A waste in my opinion.
