I think the pictures look great -- good job to Team Camaro. While it's absolutely no surprise that people who already own a 2010-2013 are going to push back on the redesign (Ask 93-97 Camaro owners what they think of the 98-02 Camaro), I think it will bring new buyers into the Chevrolet dealerships who otherwise might not have considered the Camaro. It's been well received on many websites that are devoted to the competitors (Mustang sites, Challenger sites, etc) so if it means more conquest sales - that's a HUGE plus.

Is it just lighting effects with the camera or are there a lot of individual LEDs lighting up the halos now?

It's not the tail lights that bug me. It's the weird curves on the trunk. I haven't seen one in person yet but from the pictures I've seen, I don't like the look. I'm hoping they look better in real life.

Glad you brought that up cause I was wondering the same thing. It looks like individual lights to me. I'm liking the RS package more every time I see it. I may have to add it to my order.

Yes, but not in this thread. I will change the rear, but the front looks great.

Could have wrapped some yellow up front... and eliminated both side markers. May have balanced the look some.

They are individual. My guess is for brightness. Notice how much more bright the new ones are. They appear to be the DRLs as well so that's probably why they did that.
