Let the modding start... round tail light mod for C7 Corvette Stingray

Looks like this company has a kit out for the tail lights out before the car, and only $2800 for there kit what do you think.

Easy decision... a :nono: for me... I'd stay with the totally restyled re-directive LED stock set. It's a C7 not a C6... IMO I accept the all-new the way it is.

Not bad looking...I wonder how much that will cost.

DUH - $2800 for the kit, more for the prep and paint. Some assembly required!

Why buy a C7 and then try to make it look like a C6?

I would assume this is a mod we should be expecting.

A lot of Corvette enthusiasts were upset because they "are Camaro tail lights" and no longer round, something they consider a signature of Corvette. I guess this kit is available for those 'old school' vette fans who wish to maintain round tail lights.... Some people hate change...

I love the new design and would never change it. To each their own I suppose.

This.
I understand why they would make this kit. Just not for me.
