no i know that haha thats clear to see. but one of the biggest complaints about the 10-13 models was that it looked like gm forgot the reverse taillights and they threw them on the bumper last minute. but i think the way they are now is good because if they werent there it would look boring! someone above me mentioned the reverse lights so thats what made me think about it haha

Yeah, I definately like those better. The reverse lights on ours don't bother me at all.

They only bothered me when I had to remove the bumper to replace the lights...

It's just okay. I can live with the new ones... don't love it, just like it. And especially on a Z/28, I wouldn't give a hoot if it looks like what was on my Huffy bike in the 80s... It's interesting when you compare the rear and its evolution... from pure aggressive musclecar approach to a more modern/sports car aesthetics.

No offense....but it looks very..."Mustang" with the three divisions....

I still maintain that you all need to wait to see them in person...I haven't heard of many (if any) who've actually seen them...say they don't like'em.

Although they still aren't as good looking as the '10-'13 tail lights IMO, these I could live with a little better. I also agree that the reverse lights would need to be in there.

Maybe they should've done like the RS on the 1st Gen. Non-RS got the reverse lights in the tail light. RS got them on the rear valance.

Lets not forget that hole to place the license plate as well..

The other rear fascia blends so much better..

What I like more about the ones in the pic that the OP posted is not as much the mid-80's Pontiac look but more how they don't wrap around to the side. They also allow for the recessed look in the bumper. The ones on the '14 make it basically flush with the bumper.

The more I look at the OP's pic the more is see how much they changed the rear on the '14. It just doesn't look good IMO.

I will say that all this bitching and would, coulda, shoulda is really irrelevant now. GM did what they did and they more than likely aren't going to change it until the 6th Gen comes out. Hopefully they'll learn from this one though.

That is what I like about the car in the pic, I also like where the plate mounts better too.

And agreed, it is all irrelevant at this point..
