New style headlamps

What does everyone think of these new style headlamps that seem all the rage now like the upcoming Hillier/Autotek Falcon coupe ?
Here's the thread with a pic for those of you that don't know what I'm on about. http://discussions.fordforums.com/sh...threadid=12895

Personally I think they look sh*t. Beauty is in the eye of the beerholder I suppose!
:beerchuge

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

I agree with you...I dont like them one bit.

But I guess I should see them in the flesh before passing judgement.

Do I really have to write something funny in here?

Sounds like an idea, but call me pessemistic or what but i see a funny thing can happen if the system isn't working properly. I can imagine the headlights just pointing in the air or something like that. :oo1: :oo1:

i'm sure they would be like "pop up" headlights and have a manual override....

The jury is still out for me, maybe if I stare at them long enough I might come to a decision.
