Non-RS Headlight Halo Mod Question

I've ordered a Silver 2LT. I opted NOT to go with the RS package, as the only thing I really love about it is the halo headlights. I think she looks hellasweet without the spoiler, and the larger tires just don't do it for me. So... has anyone played with modding the headlights on a 2LT to include the Halo rings?

If so, where did you get the parts, how much, and how difficult was it?

Cheers!

I agree... with minor wiring changes they should work great.

Mmm, I'll have to do a few comparisons. Factory vs. aftermarket. IF she ever comes in, I'll defeinitely be posting pix of the before/after. (and quite probably a few "help! I F'd up! notes)

I agree with you 100% on the spoiler. I love the downward sweep of the back of the car without it.

Anyone have pix of the factory rally stripes on the trunk *without* a spoiler? Only seem to find RS package versions with stripes.

Yeah I went with a 2LT w/o RS package for the same reason (spoiler and not too big on the summer tires). But...I love the HID/halo combination. I've ordered black with inferno orange rally stripes and if I can get HID with colour-matched (orange/red) halos that would be super bad-ass, I think. My target prod week is 13 July and I'll post pics of how it looks with rally stripes and no spoiler, Darsh, as soon as I get the car.

I hate to burst your bubble, but I just learned the hard way that you CAN NOT use the Factory Halo's in a non-RS without changing the headlights at $800ea, the "Body control Module" unknown cost, front wiring harness, and adding in the 2 power supplies to run the lights.

My dealer did not know this, nor did I, for that matter, at the time I picked up my 2010 Camaro. They even ordered the lights for me. However, after speaking with GM, they said this can not be done through GM. I am sure you can pay out the #$$#$ to get it done elsewhere, but you should have went with the RS. MUCH CHEAPER that way.

On a side note, dealer, has agreed to allow me to return the car and order exaclty what I want. This is what I am doing. They are allowing me to keep the car while they find a buyer, but I am not driving it. I have had it for 4 weeks now, love it, but for the amount of $$$ I paid, it should be exactly what I want. Some here may think I am crazy, but I fell in love with the front of the new Camaro from the concept drawings with the Halo Lights. It's just not the same to me, without them. So I am going to return it and order exactly what I want.

The one I have now kind of fell into my lap. (2SS M6, ICE Silver, with 21" GMPP Wheels, Sun Roof, Loaded, Austin,TX. I did not order it, the dealer simply called me because I had contacted them about buying a Camaro. I am not sure how they manged to actually get one in.

If anyone is interested (not to be a salesman) You can contact Champion Cheverlet in Austin, TX. The car only has 1300mi on it, I have not got on it at all,was still breaking it in and it stays in my garage. BTW, Champion thus far has treated me better than any other dealership that I have dealt with. They have been absolutely fantastic.



Anyway, sorry to break the news to you on this. I wish someone had told me, before I bought the car....

Ahh that's too bad. Not a deal breaker for me, though - I can live with the stock headlights. Thanks for the information, though. Saved me some grief.

Bummer. Thanks for the heads up! Hopefully the aftermarket folks will solve that problem then. She's a beautiful machine, and it wasn't until I was able to see her up close that I found I preferred the lack-o-spoiler. There's a certain j'un cest quoi about that look.

The spoler delete probably would have been an easier fix and much cheaper then modding the headlights to fit halo's

If you want factory halo's order the RS package. Well worth it price wise.

#PIC5196: Upgrading To RPO T4F High Intensity Discharge (HID) Headlamps - keywords accessory add change exterior forward halo harness headlamp lamp light lighting WRS - (Jun 22, 2009)


Subject: Upgrading to RPO T4F High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps


Models: 2010 Chevrolet Camaro




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this PI.

Condition/Concern:
Some customers may request that the standard headlamps be ungraded to the RPO T4F High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps. This is not an available upgrade. The T4F HID headlights are part of the WRS option package and cannot be added or upfitted on this vehicle.

Recommendation/Instructions:
DO NOT attempt to upfit standard headlamps to the T4F HID headlamps. This upfit is not supported by engineering. It is necessary to order the vehicle with RPO WRS to get the T4F HID headlamps.

Please do not contact Technical Assistance for this concern, the feature simply cannot be added.

Please follow this diagnostic or repair process thoroughly and complete each step. If the condition exhibited is resolved without completing every step, the remaining steps do not need to be performed.

GM bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians, NOT a "do-it-yourselfer". They are written to inform these technicians of conditions that may occur on some vehicles, or to provide information that could assist in the proper service of a vehicle. Properly trained technicians have the equipment, tools, safety instructions, and know-how to do a job properly and safely. If a condition is described, DO NOT assume that the bulletin applies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition. See your GM dealer for information on whether your vehicle may benefit from the information.

If you give it enough time, somebody will come up with rs style headlights to fit your stock ones. You can get projector headlights with the halo rings right now for an 08 silverado, so i'd give it another 2 years, maybe less because there is so much desire for it.

yeah when the HID halo lights come in at 600 bucks a side the package is very worth it


but since you want no spoiler and many others i think it would be wise for them to offer a spoiler delete

GM should add a Halo light package option. I didn't order the RS package because of the 20" wheels. I would really like the halos... but... I will live without them.

As a daily driver, tires that cost 400 per tire are a bit too much.

I put the 19" Polished on, they look basically the same, and the tires are 200 a piece.

I wish there was some other option..

I am sure if you ordered the RS package and didn't want the wheels, you could sell them for what the RS package cost you and get whatever you wanted. Trailblazer SS 20's were going for around 1200 on ebay last time I looked. I am sure you could find somebody to swap with +cash for you too to get the smaller wheels.

I'm sure the aftermarket world will figure it out. There seems to be an overwhelming desire for these lights (including from myself).
