One more vote for the slats. It keeps the cohesiveness of the design. IMHO, the 348 is wedgier a la the 308GT4 vs the more organic 308/328/355/360 (I should know - I once owned the ultimate wedge - a Giugiaro Esprit). The 512M represents the nadir of Ferrari/Pininfarina wanting to try to return to the original round tail light design for a car that was clearly not designed for one, and ended up with a Frankenstein look that would do Pimp-my-ride proud. For those who think that double round taillights represent Ferrari-ness, what does this mean now that the 599GTB has single round tail-lights? Somehow rather, I don't foresee 599GTB owners going for a double tail-light conversion 10 years down the road (but then again, pigs might fly). Perhaps a 348 could be mistaken for an Esprit from the rear, but then again, someone might mistake a double round taillight Ferrari for a C6 Corvette or Nissan Skyline? I know this is rather unlikely but my argument is simply that while the double round tail-light is definitely a Ferrari trait, the lack of it does not imply the car is less of a Ferrari, nor does having it imply that you are a Ferrari wannabe. It's a classic look that just keep repeating itself in various configurations (still not sure about the rocket-nozzle like version on the F430 and Enzo tho). Having said all that, at the risk of being a hypocrite, the "more organic" F355 wheels do seem to suit the 348 pretty well!
