2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS: The Three Looks

February 25, 2010


The above photo is the normal look for our RS Package-equipped 2010 Camaro SS, with the fog lights being used daytime running lamps.

If you turning the parking lights on, the DRLs turn off and the headlight halo rings illuminate. I've seen a Camaro or two driving around this way, though the halo rings' illumination is subtle.

The final option is with the xenon headlights on. I think our Camaro looks the best here. Would it be even better with some sort of KITT LED scanner fitted to the hood's mail slot? Heh. Michael, I don't think that's a very good idea.

Incidentally, the headlight/foglight setup for the 2010 Camaro varies depending on what model you have. Foglights are standard with the Camaro LT trim level and up, and regular halogen headlights are standard. With the halogens, DRL operation is through the headlights and you can turn the foglights on. But if you order the RS Package that includes the xenon HID headlights (with halo rings), the foglights become the DRLs. This package eliminates foglight functionality; that is, there's no way to turn our car's fog lights on with the headlights.
