Commemorative Edition comes with the RS package.
See I thought he was trying to suggest that the commemorative edition taillights are what they are going to use on the new 2016 model, which I'm about 99.9% sure is not correct.

"2016?"
As in, I wonder if they will carry over these "new" lights over for the 2016. (no and no).

The powertrain warranty is 100,000 miles or 5 years. So I guess you are not talking about that.

Yea. Hate it. GM, plz fix in 2016.
This is spot on. I'm not a huge fan of the lights either. I can deal with them but damn, that license plate area and the incredibly bland, boring diffuser is just sad to look at. It looks unfinished to me.

If I were to buy a 2014 model, the first thing I'd be replacing is that diffuser, preferably with the one from the Z/28, as that one actually looks good. Just that change alone, makes the Camaro rear look much better, but I wouldn't say it takes the rear end as a whole from dud to hero.

I didn't like the tail lights at 1st but they grew on me. Can't wait to see what they do on the 6th gen.
