Looking at the picture, it's pretty clearly not that. I think Doug Harden is onto something.

Regular projectors are usually either low or high beam. You usually see cars with a low beam projector and high beam halogen. You cant do that with the Camaro seeing as both functions need to be in the same unit.

Bi-xenon (or if these are bi-halogen (if those exist)) projectors have a little door in them which allows them to switch between high and low beams.

The 5 LED looking things just look like styling in the plastic.

Awesome. Love it, I wish my financial situation was different so I could buy one of the first ones off the lot.

That being said, I don't think i'm going to be afraid of them given the weight/hp. My 02Z28 will run with it...

Thanks for the info. But what about the LED looking things around the headlights? Any ideas?

Well Jason was talking about the key before and I did some searching and found the key if anyone wanted to see it. http://jalopnik.com/photogallery/09C...py1/1000600007

The button with the little gauge is usually the cruise control set function. Not sure what the set on the stalk is for.

I'm pretty sure the "rocker ****" on the left side of the wheel is marked RES / + and SET / -. Next to that are the cruise enable button (the one that looks like a speedo with an arrow) and a God-intended cancel button!! No more having to tap the damn brakes to cancel cruise.

The stalk is not cruise, apparently. That could be for setting / clearing info on the DIC between the speedo and tach.

Why is the speedo calibrated in KPH? Dadgum Canucks.....Of course, as in my C5, a simple button switches it to MPH...

There in the DIC I see. along the bottom...numbers "585858" that appear to be Long/Lat and the direction as "NW"......could it be built in NAV??? And the buttons I mentioned above be the controls for the NAV????

I would think it's like the vette and the same speedo can be changed to MPH and a Km/H would turn off. The only thing I see is the number "4" on the gauges and possibly "active fuel economy" which would mean DOD for the 6 aswell? 35= MPG's !!!!!!!!!

I say again:

We're probably looking at a V6 car.

The redline on the DI 3.6 CTS is also just a hair under 7k, same as it appears in these photos.

The redline on the LS3 Corvette is 6600. I highly doubt we'll see anything different on Camaro. If it is different, it'll be lower, not higher.
