Does the 2014 ZL1 have Xenon?

Hi,

Working on details to import my 2014 ZL1 to Sweden and I have a question about the front lights. I am almost definite that they are Xenon lights - Can anyone correct me?

And they do not have any auto level functions? So if I put high payload in the trunk my lights will aim higher up towards the sky - correct?

Can they be adjusted downwards in any way? If yes - Does anyone know how much in percentage?

Also, what is the maximum payload you can put in the trunk on the ZL1?


Reasons for asking is that in Sweden we require that the headlights shall never be able to dazzle any oncoming traffic. Any cars sold in Sweden with Xenon must have auto-adjust headlights that adjusts according to the car body angle, or you must be able to adjust them manually.



Thanks a million!

Yes, the headlamps are Xenon HIDs, and no they do not auto-level. Also they are not easily manually adjusted. I've not looked into it too much, but the owner's manual says not to dick with it.

I'm not sure of the max you can put in the trunk, check the Certification Label inside the Drivers door to see what the GVWR is for the front and rear. The owners manual can give you all the calculations you need to do to figure it all out.

Thank you DarthZL1!

I found this on GM Parts Direct:

So it appears you can also have non-HID headlights on the ZL1 or am I wrong?

No, it was not an option on the ZL1. The Xenon HID lamps were standard... well.. ONLY headlamps you could get.

What do you mean with ONLY headlamps? So you mean I can get headlamps that does not have Xenon? Do you know any part number?

Are they bolt on?

ZL1s only came with Xenon...

You could buy headlights from a lesser model but not sure if they would wire the same.

By 'ONLY', that means there were NO optional headlights on the ZL1.

Just curious - what will you be packing in the truck that causes you to ask how much weight it can carry? Sounds like maybe you might also need an SUV or truck?

No, sorry for not being clear. What I meant was the Xenon HID headlamps were the only headlamps available for the ZL1.

OK now I understand. Thanks for the reply. I also received this from GM Parts Direct just now to even further clarify:



Hi Nick,
Thank you for your emailed inquiry to us at www.GmPartsDirect.com.

Unfortunately, the Hi Intensity Headlamps and the Halogen Headlamps in the 2014 Camaro are not interchangeable.

Thanks,
Floyd
