I have never liked tail light lenses that stick out beyond the body panels either, but on this impreza they are incorporated as an extension of the body lines, they stay "square" with the body. On other carst that due this the lenses are round and look horrible. The impreza lenses are angular and square and match the car quite well. I find it hard NOT to see them as appealing on this new body. That wing is very nice as well. Overall I think they did a fantastic job.
