Me personally, I am a parking light + fog light kinda guy.
The first 2 are RS/SS cars. First car is probably running and the second is not. DRL's on RS cars are the fog lights. The last 2 cars are non RS cars so that's why the last car has the DRL's in the parking lights. He probably has the fog light switch turned on (I do the same thing in my 4th gen - looks cool). Can't explain car number 3 though...

Yeah i want an SS/RS as well and i like the Fog Lamps + DRL Pakring Lights better than just the halogen fog lamps running...

Anybody else find it weird that teh headlights are HID which have a "Blue Tint" and the fogs are still going to be that ugly Yellow?

With the bigger pics, you can really see the difference. Like the tail lights, not enough difference for me. Too bad the RS wheels aren't black chrome or something sleek like that.

Impossible to tell 100% in the pics but I think the 6th Camaro looks darker than ABM. I think it could be Imperial Blue Metallic.

6 Camaros and the one behind the last one looks either like a G8 GT or is a G8 GXP test car.

My theory is that the non-RS cars use high beams as DRL's. That's how my Monte Carlo is. The reason I say that is the headlights are the only lights on in car 3 (pretty much impossible to do), the headlight look really bright and lastly why would chevy change the location of the DRL for the RS if the non-RS uses the amber trun signals. Having the ambers on would have nothing to do with the HID, but if the highbeam is the DRL it wouldn't be wise to keep an HID on all the time so then the DRL was moved to the fod lights.
My idea:
1. RS running and in gear w/DRL on
2. RS not running DRL off
3. Standard SS running and in gear w/ DRL on
4. Standard SS running w/ parking and fog lights on.
5. RS running w/ lights on and fod lights off.

I agree that the first two SS/RS have the midnight silver wheels; however I think the other SS cars have the standard sterling silver wheels. They don't look to have enough shine to be polished.

Well parking lights are the DRL's for non RS cars so your theory #3 can't be correct. Perhaps #3 has it's headlights on and we don't notice that the parking lights are on. Car #4 parking lights are too bright for them not to be DRL's. Car #4 looks great btw - has a very mean look.

Can anyone see better than me?

I was just about to point that out.

6 5th gens followed by a G8. An old 'burb and a red jeep Cherokee parked behind them.

I spotted a production model last week at the local eatery. When I went to the dealer and asked about it, it was stated that the car was on its way to showing, but would not say where.

x2, that's what I thought too (about a sixth one)

EDIT: whoops, sorry, needed to keep reading Looks like we've already agreed there are six...

As to the sixth being IBM, I don't necessarily agree; I think the ABM was much darker than I thought it would be, and these were taken in overcast weather, so it could easily be the ABM.

Looks like a typical illuminated parking light to me. I don't understand why the DRL would be moved from the parking light to the fog light for the RS. Seems unnecessary then. I could see why it would have to moved if the non-RS uses highbeams.

I believe the reason is that if the RS used the parking lights as the DRL's, it would take away from the halo's look. The halos would have a lighter beam then the DRL's. Take a look at the first silver car and imagine the halos on - a much more dramatic effect then if the parking lights and halos were on.

Also - they couldn't just make all the models use the fog lights as the DRL's because the LS models have no foglights.

the first RS/SS has just the fog lights (DRL's?) on, the last SS non RS in this picture has the parking lights and fog lights on, (You can tell they are just the parking lights because the side marker light is lit) The red SS non RS in front of it has probably got the DRL's on, because no side marker is lit and the parking lights are not lit.
If they are anything like my Sky if the car is running and the parking brake is set the DRL's will not light, but if it is sitting there running and the parking brake is off the DRLs will be on.

+1. i went to a dealer today to look at aqua blue. they didn't have any on the lot, but he showed me a paint book & it's definitely darker than the Chevy rendering - somewhere closer to jetstream.

The 7th car in the line is definitely a G8, but it's hard to tell what version from that distance. There is no real discernable difference between the G8, G8 GT, and G8 GXP other than the wheels (and engine of course).

Vehicle #8 is probably a Trailblazer or Envoy.
