I just got the black housings. I was staying away from the trend of the projectors. Go for it.

As much as I am all for the racoon stockers, projectors really work for your car.

LOL at the thread title, and really tough decision. I think the racoons would be cleaner since you wouldn't use the eyelids that don't fit all that well. At the same time I like the look of the projectors.

I say do the coons. IMO, actual retrofit projectors are much better than the ones that most have. Here is my breakdown.

retrofit>racoons>depo/ebay projectors>stock.

I think racoons look better only on white, silver and light cars.

Darker colors like red, blue, black, etc...no no.

Your eyelids have fit issues so in my eyes you can make an improvement by either removing them completely or obtaining/installing better fitting eyelids.

I love the coons. I'm not so much against the projectors, but I hate the way your eyelids fit. I say get the coons and maybe get some shorty eyelids, maybe they'll fit better?

Since you didn't put a poll at this point in the thread:

Coons: 10
Projectors: 8
Retrofits: 2 people suggested this

Then Paul had to go against the grain and just said get new eyelids so I didnt know where to put him LOL

I always believe that if yer going to add something to a vehicle it better fit and fit good otherwise it looks like a poorly done add-on.

In my opinion the vehicle would look higher quality without the poor fitting eyelids.

Only get new lids if they fit correctly... otherwise I like the vehicle and do follow the progress thread on it.
