the new Taillights ruin the look of the Camaro

I am sure this has been mentioned before but I am really turned off at the new tail lights and I think it takes so much away from the distinctive look. I had a 2010 v6 and really wanted to upgrade to an SS, but I can't do it solely based on the taillights, does anyone agree?

you're right what were they thinking, it almost resembles a 69 now.
and right again, this has to be the 20000000000000 post in last few weeks about that
I like all these cars, like someone else said, get whatever you like. see I don't care for pintos, so I never got one

I know this has been beat up, but it took time for the new look to grow on me too. I think I actually like it better than mine now. Looks cleaner and more refined IMO.

Ok, im not yelling prelude this time!
Personally i think only the rs led tail lights look good. Get what you want. I had to sacrifice an aerodynamic front end for the old lights. Get what you want. The 2014 rs lights look much more fitting on the camaro than non rs. When i got my 2013 the 2014s were out. Since that time, i've seen more 2013s with paper plates after they introduced the. 14s.

Buy what you like, that's what I did. I hated the '10-'13 tail lights, so as soon as they changed it, I finally got one. I like the nose better, too. Wasn't a fan of the mail slot. I ended up with a '14 2SS/RS 1LE cause that's what I liked, you should do the same.

Some love the new look, some don't. Some love the 13 look better. Personal preference.

I personally like the 13 look much, much better.

I'm going to try to save a horse here and close this sucker. Apologies to the OP, but we have beaten this topic to within inches of its life.
