Dissapointed in the Tail Lights

I really like the new 2010 camaro's, almost every aspect except for the tail lights. I think the design looks like a corvette. I personally think they should have gone with the design like on a 67,68,69. The one piece design tail lights on each side not seperate lights like the vette. I am just wanting to know what you guys think about it.

I've actually grown to like the design a lot. I was dissappointed in the entire back-end from the first time I saw photos, but a few days ago I saw a black 2SS/RS on I-5 in Shoreline and was blown out of the water. This car looks great in person, and I think the back-end is perfect when you see it on the road.

I think having the four lights ties the car to the Corvette without making it look *like* the corvette. You can tell that they are sister cars, but this is not a Corvette (and is a little less refined).

I LOVE the tail lights! I LOVE the fact that they look like a Corvette!! To each his own is so true. That's what makes the world go 'round!!

Can some one post a "side by side" picture of RS vs. NON-RS tail lights? I have the RS and haven't noticed any difference between mine and a NON-RS.

What is the diff between rs and non rs. I saw them side by side and couldn't tell much diff. the rs looked alittle darker maybe around the bottom. Not worth the extra If thats.

Really? How bout the Xenon headlights, halo rings, color matched roof ditch moldings and a darker shade of silver on the wheels for $1200 I don't know but I think it's a deal

I thought I read a post on here about factory workers mixing up the rs and non rs tail lights. IF they are that close why don't they just use the same for all.

The 4 taillights appear to be a throwback to the 2nd gen. Camaros. They took cues from both the first and second gen to create the current look.

What about the '68 RS tail lights?

The thread is about tail lights only. I know about the other parts that make up the entire package. I was saying that if they only diff between rs and non rs tail lights is that the rs is alittle darker color on the bottom of the lens than why even change them at all.

I didn't like the back end at first either but it's grown on me and now I love it. The rear is so wide it just looks like a beast in my opinion. RS tail lights are a shade darker. I think they look great on my CGM. And as far as shape, I think they look good.

Im just saying the body lines and every thing are based upon first gen. cars, i think the second gen/corvette design should be changed, like a aftermarket kit or something maybe?

The RS were supposed to be darker than non-RS. It was an "attempt" to mimic the "afterburners" look of the concept. NOW somebody offer those and then we got something to talk about.

Well you see guys, they didn't make this car based on the 69/first gen. cars. Sure there are quite a few similarities but they have stated this car was a NEW camaro, they wasn't doing a retro car, like dodge and ford has done. And I wasn't a huge fan of the back end either, but it is growing on me.

What they need to do is put a '69 body, and put it on the new chassis, BEST OF BOTH worlds!!!!!!!
