I agree that Bumblebee did look good without the halos. I do like them either way. Its not a big deal for me. HIDs on the other hand I do want for sure.I dunno about wanting halos, but I like to see a HID option. I think bumblebee didnt have halo style lamps, but more like plain halogens and it still looked good.
My current car has them and I couldn't go back now, they just make everything glow. You can see signs much futher away and the lines in the road that have that reflective pigment in it, those are so clear in the rain when my old car hardley lit them.+1
My last two cars have had them and I can't imagine going back to regular halogens. HIDs really give a car a bit of class imo.
