Where are the DRL's?

I'm looking at all the videos we see posted here and the Yellow one comes out with all the lights on so we can't see the DRL's and the Red one has no lights and no DRL's on it visible at all.

Who has more info?

I would assume its the ring that makes that halo effect. If your looking for pictures theres plenty on this thread.

Actually I found a good picture for the Day time running lamps. At the top of this page.

Well, the parking lamps (blinkers) are on in that picture also. So we can't be sure the halo's are going to be the DRL's.

If indeed the halo's ARE the DRL's, they will be the first ones I didn't want to disable.

I hope they are too because they DO look cool.

I know BMW's and Audi's use the halo's as DRL's. It would make sense since I don't know of any HID setup that uses the Xenon as the DRL and the other halogen in the setup would be the high beams.

The DRLs would have to be the amber parking/turnsignal lamps inside the grille, because if you've all been paying attention, the halos are OPTIONAL as part of the RS package with HID headlamps.

If you opt for an LS or LT without the RS package, you will get halogen headlamps and no halos.

So, that would have to make the parking lamps the DRLs.

Not necessarily.


The HID lamps could have Halo DRLs and the regular lamps could have either high beams for DRL or turn signals for DRL. It would be the most logical use for them.

Logical sense there. I don't like DRLs on my cars anyway, unless the Halo rings are the DRLs, i'll be defeating them as well.

I think that would necessitate too many different wiring and schematic configurations to be cost effective. Don't you think making one set of parking/turnsignal/DRL lamps and harnesses for every car that comes down the line is alot more cost effective than different wiring harnesses for the same thing based on what a customer orders?

It all depends on how you set it up. Some manufactures don't have halos as DRL's but MOST do. In this case I'm certain that THESE halos are DRL's. Otherwise the turn signals are DRL's just like the Cobalt and other similar vehicles.

Another option is both halos and the turn signals are DRL's. I know that the BMW's all have them activated (halos) for DRL's.

Ya but BMW has a bit more leeway in terms of what they can do because people are paying 2 to 3 times as much for one. I agree with everyone who says that the DRL's will be common to all Camaro's and that probably means the amber lights. It would be cool if RS cars could turn on the Halos at will though.

Could be the fog lights.

Nope, same harnesses, just change a setting in the computer.

Actually, you can turn them 'off' at will! AND if you can turn them off you can turn them on!

In my cobalt and my saturn ION you can turn DRL's off if you want, theres an option right next to the steering wheel in both cars. I would then assume that you have that option with the Camaro halos.

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5322

Check this thread out! Look at all the pictures with the DRL's running in multiple shots. To say the least, its VERY impressive!

RS is the way to go! I'd suggest sacrificing a few extra $$ for this option, if you can of course. Enjoy! I know I am.
