Just taken my car to my son's and wondered as I chucked stuff in the boot if it is also one with horrible lights.
Tail lights don't look too bad, will have to watch as he reverses it in tomorrow morning to see how awful the brake lights might be.

I see loads of them about but not taken any notice of the lights.

Lights Interesting (yes) and maybe not awful but completely inadequate :-D

Have you ever seen a smaller set of rear lights than on this pair of Renault 760's from the late 40's. :?:

One of them is in the process of being restored by Renault Reborn of Louth Lincolnshire for a friend (the blue one). Gallery here
Gorgeous little cars with tiny rear lights!

Love it. Simple, clean, logical - cute, even.
Rivian came good, by the sound of that.

Yes, they look sort of ok, but what a faff to do and something you couldn't really use on EU public roads I suspect.

I mean, we aren't even allowed anything decent on our number plates over here apart from a poxy flag! I hope they change the rules soon..... and roll on with some USA style plates :-D

Perfectly in keeping with the rest or the car :evil: Grotesque :twisted:

I'm sure mechanically and functionally it's excellent, being a Toyota, but oh gosh! What on earth were the so-called stylists on?

Nice to have a different view :-D . Unexpected too, when I posted it up, I sort of anticipated 100% disapproval.
I'll say one thing for it, in that colour, it captured my attention enough to take a pic of it!
