Hm, that doesn't really make sense to me. It's a BMW styling cue, so wouldn't it be more at-home on a MINI than a Honda?

It's probably true....but why let them influence your decisions?

Yah, i won't put a honda-looking bodykit on my MINI, but it isnt because its on hondas....its because they are just plain ugly. Many honda accesories are disgusting like LED washer jets, neons, humongous triple-deck spoilers, vinyl dragons, and chrome bling-bling rims.......but you should avoid those only if you dislike the look, not just because they are on a honda.

So, if you dislike the Angel eyes because you don't like the look, thats totally cool. But if you are only not putting them in because they are on hondas (despite the fact that you like the look)....you are investing way too much into what others think (honda owners, and anyone that you are afraid will label your car as honda-like). Do what you like and pay no attention to the lame categories put on cars these days.

no i dont like them because I dont like the look

and another negative is that ricers use them a lot, brings them down another notch in my eyes
now the ones that come stock on BMW's
pure sex

I agree with brit, I like the look of them on the 5 series, not so much on the MINI headlights, they just look out of place to me.

I think they'd look nicer if they were integrated a little deeper into the headlamp surround, but I think they look decent. Ray's car would look good with some deep yellow angel eyes.

They've actually got a lens on them, not just a neon circle:

the only way i would ever realistically do it, is if it was as clean as that picture of the 5 konky posted.

its got to be godly to pull it off well...

the first photo is a good idea, but the application could have been better... still its the best we've seen to date. so on with the prototypes!

Can you take some closer pictures? It's hard to see what the clearances are in there
