Ambient Lighting

I've seen the animation of how the ambient light works, essentially showing that it turns on when you turn the electronics of the vehicle on with a slight turn of the key. In the video, they stayed on as long as the key was turned. I like the whole concept of the lighting and was considering it, but sometimes I like the cabin as dark as possible. Does anyone know of there will be a switch to be able to turn it off while the car is on? Personally, it seems common sense that there should be a way to do that, but I want to know if anyone else knows for sure. Thanks.

I KNOW you will be able to dim the light...more than likely you will be able to dim the light to OFF

It shouldn't be any different than the current lighting in most cars. There is usually a nob that allows the driver to set the lighting to an acceptable standard.

Is there any kind of ceiling light in the car or does the ambient loghting replace that? I know on the concept that there were 2 LED strips from front to back on the ceiling. It looked cool but I doubt that it made it to production

Here's a question for you....

If you have ambient lighting.......which is ice blue......BUT, you change up that instert from blue to red, what color will you get???

Well, the ice blue remains the same. It is ONLY ice blue or inferno orange. So, with the ice blue on red, that makes PURPLE LIGHTS!!!!!!

Yep, that's right. Now, on to OTHER color configurations!!

^and that ambient blue lighting is probably going to be pretty rare since it's only coming on the 2LT and 2SS. I know I'm getting it!

i know right now the lighting is not offered in the 1SS, i'm hoping GM changes their minds and decides to offer it to the customers that don't like leather. do you think GM will offer it as a dealer installed part? if not, will the dash be built the same on all the cars with the electrical components there so that maybe we as the consumer can look for lights ourselves and get it connected?

will it be easy to get the interior lighting done aftermarket? how would i go about doing this? would any detailing shop be able to do this? and why can't we just get this done as a dealer installed option?

Okay...I don't know what type of LED lights Chevy is putting into this car but I believe that a) blue is the cheapest LED and b) orange/amber is most expensive so...

I wonder if the options will be blue LEDs or white LEDs with orange lens and in the future any other color lens option. Even easier and to keep cost down they might go with white only LEDs and colored lens - blue, orange, red, green, etc.

I'm pretty sure it's already been established they are using white LED's with tinted panels. There was another thread about this somewhere.

Aye Johnnycamaro (aka John Cox) said that the color of the lighting is controlled by the color of the covers over the light. Blue will be blue covers, orange will be orange covers and yellow will be yellow covers.
