I guess, not sure why they would get pissy, I am willing to give them $100 for their silly activation code that already comes already activated on the 17 model. Plus, the guys who have this stuff are going to get pissy if they can't sell them. Granted, you can wire an aftermarket switch to the harness but seems ridiculous given I have an integrated switch. The dealerships are losing out on the "flash time" and GM is losing out on the "purchase of additional activation code".

What risk is there activating an already supported light kit?
