Question Which setup looks the best with new headlights?!

Picked up a set of OEM Hellas recently, so now I'm trying to see which suits them better....


-First one is with matte black grills....

-Second is with silver painted grills (with black inserts)

-Third is with silver painted grills and eyelids...


I hate the top eyelids simply because I see them on E39 all the time and I don't like the way they look, that's why I tracked down a rare set of bottom ones, but that's me

Also, the orange bulb from the front turn signal is gone in the last pic...



Opinions?! Thanks!

I like the first one the best, I think it looks spectacular! The second one blends in too much, and the last one has too much going on for my taste. I think the first one is the cleanest and simplest look, while yet being aggressive.

Toss up between 1 and 2. Option 3 looks like an afterthought. Nice ride, either way!

Option #1 definitely. Black grill with the black bumper trim complement each other. If you were to paint the bumper trim silver then maybe silver grill would fit better (maybe you can photoshop so we can see).

As for the eye lids, im with you when it comes to the top ones. Took mine off as well.
The bottom ones im not really feeling too much. They belong on a E46.
