Camaro white angel eyes!

While listening Barett Jackson auction on speed chanel i have been knock by a 45th anniversary Camaro commercial, where we can clearly see it got angel eyes.I can't understand how GM can steal BMW identity whitout protest. This is really cheap!

The Camaro has this since the beginning if you take the HID option.



Nothing to do with the BMW corona rings - its not a double corona and its composed of two halfs - so I don't see any "steeling".
BMW started this trend years ago with the E39 but today many cars have distinctive "night designs".
I think it looks awesome on the Camaro - I would not buy one without HIDs.

I remember when Jeep tried to sue hummer b/c their grill looked too much like jeeps. Im surprised BMW hasnt complained about camaro (maybe since its not a complete circle) and that Audi hasnt complained about Kia using the led strips.

A friend of mine put them on his Acura TL and loves them, I'm happy he's happy with them. I on the other hand think they look a little tacky on any car, even some BMW's. Just my .02 I'm a picky person and my opinion is no better than yours or the next guys Don't let it bother you, just lol a little when you see it.
