well that didn't take long!! I hope it's true, because the C-7 should've had round tail lights!! and judging by the article it was probably written by the doofus who plastered those Camaro lights onto the C-7! Nostalgia is fine and I am not "wallowing" it's just one of the many TRADITIONAL styling cues that seperates Corvettes from other cars!

The round lights are the one thing I think GM should have carried over to the C7.  Once I get past that I will be able to accept the C7 as the future coronation of the Corvette line.  Change and improvement are necessary and appreciated, but you still should have ties to the past and history of the car. Just my 2 cents.

Is it surprising they want $2800 for them though?

no, for 2800 you are geting a whole rear fascia to bolt on. so, 2800 is not too bad imho.

imagine that, looks like a vette now. I'll bet by 2015, the round lights will be standard and the camaro lights will be offered in the kit.

Well the C6 did away with the hidden headlight so this is just completing the front / rear look...
