This is good news for everyone. Those thin horizontal taillights are a vast improvement, and I think the real lesson here is that pre-production vehicles with no other camouflage but placeholder taillights should bear obvious markings like WARNING: TAILLIGHT DESIGN NOT FINALIZED to prevent this manner of fiasco in the future.

I think what threw me is that these placeholder lights were, strangely, not shitty enough. Attempts were made to fit them into those black bands, and seemed just plausible enough. I’ll be more careful in the future, I promise.
