I think it's a little bland, but an improvement over the stock catastrophe. Instead of seeing a robot face on the ass of the car, my eyes now focus on the rest of the car and the entire design as a whole.

Looks like they routed them to the flat slots directly below the tail lights in the black area.

round taillights just do not go well with this design.

I bet there will be an overwhelming amount of aftermarket solutions to deal with those dreadful camaro-inspired lights.

The kit above though, is a step in the right direction but certainly not the best that could be done design wise.

I think that, with round tail lights, they were afraid that everyone would call it too Ferrari like.

For those who want it, I think a kit that focuses on the lights and bezels may be a worthwhile alternative solution to an entire rear end replacement.

I love the article in the first link: If you want round taillights, buy a C6.

This would be the winner. Just change the light assembly. I think I found it on DC.

gotta say, it's not the end all be all. But it is more in line with what I thought the next c7 rear would look like, along with the rest of the car.

Now I'm torn, again.

Now THAT looks like complete shit. But to each their own, if that drives sales for GM. Then I'm game.

Good lord that's hideous...

Let me get this straight... a body kit that replicates the humongous expanse of rear end from the C5 is an improvement?

I'm no big fan of the C7 rear end treatment, but this whole issue just jumped the shark...

Not sure if this has been posted here yet but I do like the mascara free look.

I think without some aero testing people are going to make some mistakes by moving the vents.
