That is what the Screaming Chicken web site sells, just has Camaro specific information and instructions at the same price as Diode plus a couple of other things that Diode doesn't sell like adapters and harnesses.

I use VLEDs.
http://www.vleds.com/

They are just a couple hours away from me and have been using them for years. Their bulbs have outlasted a couple of my cars.

All lights on my car have a been switched out for their bulbs.

i did it with amazon stuff drl's,tail light bulbs,back up's,markers,load equalizers and all.i haven't done the front turn signal bulbs yet.i think one of the best thing i did was the DRL on with headlights harness and putting led's in the DRL's the stock bulbs were yellowish and looked bad now the fog/drl's are white much better.
i got a few packs of these because i did my kids accord and my OBS c1500.they worked for all the markers,tag bulbs and the interior/headliner light.

Hint: The taillights/turn signals are a pain in the butt. I tried resistors but didn’t feel comfortable with how hot they got. Just wasn’t worth the grief so I’m back to non-LED.

We have installed several of these and haven't had any issues, couple of them on daily driver cars that get driven a lot. I installed two for friends so I'm sure I would hear about it if they had issues. You can also select Diode Dynamics bulbs which have a 3 year warranty.

I agree with other users.. Diode Dynamics LEDs are the best choice.

This is where the harness we sell comes from:

They make them and use the rubber seals that some harnesses leave out to prevent moisture. They also include a warranty.
