Agreed, I've seen some dumb questions out there but your is no where near the top.

I did a search for it along time ago, but i knew that wasn't gonna be the finished product. So i said forget it i'll wait.

A "question not asked" is not a question. I would have had that wise man stoned.

The issue wasn't specific - but I asked during the last IDL about why it wasn't listed in the customer ordering workbook - and they said they HOPE to have it (ABL) ready by the start of production.

So if they don't have this ready by launch, will the price for the 2SS be adjusted accordingly?

No, because the product guide doesn't mention it being available.

heck, and one of the reasons I went with the 2LT rather than a 1SS was the ABL.

I thought one of the features of the 2LT /2SS was supposed to be the Ambient lighting !?, I didn't realize it's going to be an additional option.

^It is not an additional option. YOU GET the ambient lighting when you get the 2LT or 2SS since it comes with the leather (leather and ambient go together).



If the ambient lighting is not ready upon start of production, I WILL NOT have GM make my car. Simple as that. I will cancel my order if I have to and reorder when it becomes available. That will not be a problem for me....happy to wait. I want the car...just want it with the ambient lighting. I'm not worried about it not being available upon launch. If not, maybe GM will make all the cloth vehicles first??...

I believe in Santa Clause, and I beleive this new big daddy mac CAMBO should be made with ABL
or my Christmas wishes will be reduced to lumps of coal. I just hope that those lumps of coal can help give me some extra boost down the line.

If the ambient lighting is removed the MSRP better be dropping with it. I paid for a car with expected options and better get said options.

It's supposed to be there at launch, but I have been down at the dealer twice in the last seven days, and there are no guarantees the ambient lighting is going to be ready. Because they can't promise me, I went ahead and switched to the 1SS/RS, BA stereo, and polished wheels. I REALLY would like to have it, but I'd be pissed to the high heavens if it wasn't in there when my car comes in. This way there won't be anything to rain on my parade when it gets delivered. I would love to be able to get it and the 4 pack gages through their parts department though. In any case, making the switch from the 2SS/RS did save me around $2500 +/-. Even without 'em, it'll still light up pretty nice at night. And here where I live the cloth might be a better option. It's usually anywhere from 95 - 117+ degrees during the summer...and that leather will be scorching hot after sitting on a parking lot with the windows up for even a short period of time.

I am with you on that one TAG.

When they said that the HUD was going to be delayed, I almost postponed my order. If they announce that AI is going to be delayed, I will pull my order and wait until they get the interior "cool factor" back to where I want it.

I agree if ABL isnt there at start of production its a deal breaker for me. Sorry but as cool as the car is, it is one extra thing that makes it special and not having it the car looses some of its coolness/uniqueness. Plus as stated I'm sure the prices arent going to be adjusted for not having it. Its hard to believe that ABL would be such a difficult thing to get going that there would be a chance it wouldnt be avaliable at start of production unless its an issue with getting the parts.

I've got cash in hand for a new Camaro but between the economy and possibilties like this of the Camaro being less than what I expected (and due to the fact that we are short one car now since I sold our Pontiac Solistice), I'm about ready to go put money down on a Mustang or a Challenger. I dont want to wait another year for them to get the Camaro to the point where it should be (i.e. ABL included). Even not having the HUD at start of production pisses me off. I'm hoping that the HUD can be added later at the dealership when it becomes available so I can have the complete package (assuming I go through with the purchase of the car).

No. This will NOT turn into a stripe thread!

I will not cancel my order if ABL is not included. I will, however, put it off until it is (as long as they say it's coming). If they scrap it all together, I will not cancel my order. I will still get it, but the price had BETTER reflect the change of no ABL. ABL makes the interior of this car simply kick @ss.

As much as I want the Camaro in my garage ASAP, not having the ABL available at launch will get me to postpone my order until it is ready.

The HUD not being ready for launch was a disappointment, but not having either the HUD or the ABL will keep me away from the drivers seat for a while.
