Same here, love the lightbar on the gen 2 & 3
Think it looks really premium and stylish compared to other cars trying to do the same thing
Love it as well ... tho not the tinted/clear one which looks rather dull, needs a hint of colour even when off
I surprised myself on that one. I originally specced the clear ones because I always liked the clear lenses on the back of the Aston. But then, like you, I thought they looked a bit bland, just a length of clear plastic so de-specced then amd happy I did. Obviously with the lights on they look fine either ways.
I owned a macan with the normal lightbar and tinted one - I like both
Overall I prefer the tinted one in real life, looks much better than in photos though

With my tread carefully slippers on doesn't the GTS have a tinted rear light strip which enhances the look?

Heres the Gen 2 Turbo (my spec) and below the same in GTS spec - the normal bar followed my theme of silver / black / red. Also didnt like the black Porsche logo which is just lost in the lightbar, might as well not have it at all. Nothing beats in real life tho.

I think if the model designation had been included the GTS clear one would be fine its just without the designation the colour in the normal bar gives your eye something to focus on ... well thats what I'm telling myself.
