At some point w/i the next 5-7yrs, were I a betting man, I'd bet basically every new passenger vehicle sold in America will be equipped w/ HID or LED lights as standard equipment. The discussion reminds me of the hoopla behind HALOGEN in the 1980's once people realized how much brighter than standard they were. The buyer wanted them, but was later shocked at the double price for a replacement light(then bulb 1/6th the size of the light) and the funny thing was, those who had older vehicles would gladly pay that extra... but they didn't usually have a car payment over their head. Same thing today, but HID and LED is replacing the older technology.

You've got a good point. I wasn't around in the 80s though so I didn't get to see that debate happen, but It is a good example. It always seems to take a bit for everyone to embrace the new tech, but whenever it does get accepted, You never hear of the old tech again almost lol. But yea 5-7 years sounds about accurate. Thanks for your incite

You can probably say the same thing about Radial Tires.

A couple of months ago one of my suppliers sends me a pic of a bumper saying it's a 2014 bumper and asked if I would be interested in it? If not he would of put it on ebay to sell them on there. Knowing what they were and mixed with my extreme enthusiasm for Camaro I bought these bumpers for one purpose only TO PROTECT THE PRIVACY OF THIS CAR! GM has done such a good job keeping it protected I could not let a parts leak like this blow its cover. People argue it's only one part but it still shows what the front would look like. I still to this day will not post a picture and am not being paid at all by GM to keep it private. I am doing this solely because I am a passionate enthusiast and I respect this car very much and the people working on it! This car also means alot to me as the 5th gen played a big role in my lifestyle. SO if any of you are looking for a pic you will all just have to wait until the reveal to see this monster of a car!
I think we want to see some pictures of your prototypes you got your hands on.

Headlight

Any idea if this is the same headlight pictured above or is this a normal 2016 Chevrolet Camaro headlight? Its OEM with a GM PN of 23509015. It has a ballast so must be an HID Xenon or LED. I've googled the part number and it doesn't show up. Anyone have information on this light?
