yeah...there's a very specific sweet spot where the splitter won't drag...i've found it only once so far! lol...reverse up the driveway is even worse. my driveway is also the only time hill start assist has activated on me so far...and i was right, i pretty much hate it. maybe i'll adjust, eventually...
here's a question...i got a silver engine cover in the bay that i didn't order. did everyone else get one of these too? didn't pay for it...also, i noticed i've got lighting in the door panels. i didn't think we got that unless we ordered the abl package. or am i just confused about that one?

I think the standard color for the engine cover is silver. Pretty sure the ABL lighting comes with the 2SS.

hmm okay. i wasn't sure about the lighting but it's one of those things i wouldn't have paid much attention to. it's really not noticeable during the day, and when i opened my door last night i thought that was pretty cool.
was thrown off by the cover because i wasn't expecting one...if i'd known it was coming i would have asked for yellow

Sorry to pass this bad news on, especially for those really anticipating arrival of new cars. My car is being towed in the morning, and i'll keep you posted.
Oh no! What the heck? I wonder if this has to do with the common brake line clutch line reservoir? Keep us posted. So sorry.

I wish I got a red engine cover like Tram. I love the blue lights. 2SSRS said they were supposed to go across the dash but chevy made cost cuts. He sells, at gen5diy.com, a kit where you can extend the blue lights across the dash and thus connect the left door and right door.

I had the dash abl set up.. only problem u can't turn them off they just dim down... on long night drives they can affect night vision. Probably will install again this time with a relay and switch.

Hard to photograph...

That blue footwell light is as eerie as New Orleans graveyard.

Was nice with the top down on vert... fronts and backs. They followed the theater lighting. Going to do the same on this car... but will also add switch and relay to be able to have complete control.

I actually like it. Just pulling your leg about the graveyard. Are these led lights? Do they change colors?

yeah, i don't think i'd want the abl in the dash...there's already a lot more lighting in the cabin than i'm used to. some friends came over last night to check her out, one of them said it's lit up like a spaceship in there lol. maybe if i could swap everything to red so it doesn't interfere with night vision so much...

thanks ckatsu, i'm looking forward to when you and newb get the AGMs on island! how's your order progressing anyway?

plan for tomorrow: finish clay work, install catch can, possibly do a stock dyno run. if there's time after, install reverse leds and sidemarkers

My aunt said the gauge cluster looks spacey and modern too. I told her this was a 60s design.

If you figure out the red lights let us know. I've been thinking the same thing. I'll check on gen5diy.

I've seen a few threads about lighting up the interior. If i recall, most of it's pretty straightforward swapping out. I'll see what I can gather over the weekend on it, this wasn't something that I was planning on doing soon

After seeing some BRM SSs at the dealership, that's definitely a good way to go also. Really, I don't think there's a bad color available...but I do think that white and silver are kind of boring compared to all the others we can choose from. I don't understand why BRM isn't a premium color but RY is...I mean, I get why RY is, but BRM seems like it'd be an expensive color. Guess they're just trying to get it selling.

I did. Haven't messed with it much yet, just enough to pair my phone and play with a couple settings this afternoon. Seems pretty cool, but I didn't ever play with a non-nav, so there's no basis for comparison
