2016 Camaro headlights appear on ebay!

Updated 2/14/15:

Comments and photo posted by CFTA showing closeup of the 2016 Camaro headlight projector bulb, which shows that there is no LED halo ring.

The bulb for the projector, seems to be HID and missing, appears to be powered by a secondary ballast which was not present in any of the housing shown on ebay. I will still try to see if the newer HID D3 bulbs are a direct fit or if its a new/different type of bulb socket. The 14-15 RS cars use D3 bulbs with 55w ballasts while the 2010-2013 use 35w D1s. Wires for any possible hid ballast, as well as the highbeam cutoff shield had been cut. The cutoff shield motor is intact and from what I recall, it is a 3 wire set up.

The main plug for the headlight is an 8 pin setup. The LED DRL ballast was first removed and all wiring traced throughout the headlight. It is made by AL in germany and the same style used in Audis. Two pins in the one corner of the main plug run directly to the LED DRL ballast, 4 or 5 wires run from that to the LED circuit boards(3 of those). There is no other connection from the LED ballast going to anything else. Ground pin was found just by checking continuity of the pins and seeing which had no resistance to the metal housing of the ballast. It was powered up right after figuring that out. The LED strip is bright and glows almost like fiber optics, no single point LEDs are visible. The LEDs sit about 4 inches back from the front edge.

The turn/marker light is lit in the same manner that the current 5th gens are, a bulb in a standard socket goes into the back and rotates to lock it in. The socket lock pattern however is not the same as 14-15 cars.

Getting back to the main headlight, no halo as I previously said, at least not in these versions. I have yet to confirm what country the cutoff shield is for. I'm pretty sure it looked to be for a LHD setup. So US, canada, Europe(excluding england), etc. One cut wire coming into the headlight leads to a wire coiled around a ring, the type of thing sometimes used on the 12v power lead to an HID ballast. It possible that the ballast is part of the rear cover to the headlights.

All this was done/observed in a matter of maybe 10-15 min with the headlight so that is why I can't be sure about some details right now. I will find out more though.

There is a guy with 3 of them posted on Ebay. The guy is from Ypsilanti, Michigan.

The product label matches the 6th gen Camaro program code - A1BC.

i am aware of that since i have both the 2010 and the 2014 models , but the listing says that its an OEM piece , so i thought i would share it to get some information , the light looks like it doesn't fit a camaro , I've taken out my headlight on my 14 rs to install the oracle kit , and i can tell it doesn't look the same perhaps different edges

The headlight has damage anyway so I wouldn't even bother with it.

My guess would be the auction is titled wrong and that's not a Camaro headlight.

They look custom made and look similar to the headlights on bumblebee from transformers 3

I didn't notice CAMARO written on there, now you've got me curious to how they look on the car.

I have never seen a headlight like that either, that LED strip is kind of cool.

C6 Headlights

There was a post on the C5 forum about 2015 headlights. There is a guy with 3 of them posted on Ebay. The guy is from Ypsilanti, Michigan. The only thing is I don't think they are for a C5, they look like they may be for the C6. They have been damaged. I'm thinking they may have ended up in the trash at GM or something and this guy got ahold of them somehow.
