Had my 2010 since August of 09 and I have around 12,000 miles on it. I did take more random cruises and backroards the first year or two than I do now though.
Yea. The only reason i got up to 5300 now is because i went down to orlando for the Sunshine State Rally. Most of the time i go anywhere I'm going to school and since i am lucky to have two cars the Camaro doesn't get driven unless its a nice day or going to a show or meet. Im trying to drive it a little more so that i can enjoy it because you never know what can happen. But I'm hoping that the Camaro will stay with me for the rest of my life. It is my first car and was also my dream car so its a little special

Nice job man! I know what you mean, this car is my dream car and I'd like to keep it forever. Mine is about to turn 40, soon it'll have a midlife crisis and want a turbo. lol.

i'm not a fan of any bodykits for the Camaro, other than the zl1 front bumper, zl1 rockers or even the gm gfx rockers, and then the mpd1 diffuser.

I also turned off the running light function on them. Now they only turn on when I activate the blinker. Basically, the same way the RS headlights function

I second that

In my opinion the only body kit that will look nice on the V6 while keeping the stock fascia is the GM GFX. Even then i wouldn't consider getting it. Im just planing on doing the ZL1 Sides and calling it a day

By removing the metal contact from the bulb, right? I kinda like the way the lights look when I just flip the running lights on at dusk... Also, I wonder if the sharpie shortens the bulb life, similar to getting oil on the bulb.

Yea, by removing the metal contact. It's possible that the sharpie could shorten the bulb life but since they are so cheap, I didn't really care
I liked the way they looked with non-rs lights but when I got my rs lights, I decided to do away with them

True, they are cheap and easy to get to.
Gosh, I wish I could get some RS lights. That's the main thing my front end is missing.

Time to start saving up!
I got my set from a member on here that sells them and they were in extremely good condition. I was honestly astounded by how good they looked. I was totally expecting the lights to at least show signs of them being used since they were used but they looked brand new. Might be one of the greatest mods I've done to the car. Especially when you see the difference in light output from the halogens to the HIDs.
