Look like the ebay halo's. I'm not a fan of the metal but most people i have seen with these type of halos just leave them as they are. They look like they hold them together so I don't think there's much you can do about it.

What metal piece? The one that's in the middle of the ring? or on the back? I have the facelift one also and the angel eyes look just like the ones in the picture you posted. There are no other ones that you can get for the facelift, at least from what I researched. If its the pieces in the back that you are talking about then I can produce pics for you tomorrow or next week sometime. Going to take mine out to put some orions in. Got the predators and they suck!

The metal part hides the part where the wires exit the back of the ring, just a cosmetic piece.

They make orion ones for the facelift now. They have no metal pieces that show. I f you want no metal showing I suggest getting those. Just put them in today. They look awesome. Will show pics later.

yes they are on. the iphone camera isnt that great, but they really look sick and its not as flashy as the LED ones. In my opinion just go with the CCFL's. Trust me. They are completely different than the ones the pre-facelift. They are brighter too. At night mine look legit.

i thought you already bought the ccfl halo's? if you didnt, i can get you some for cheap for a vendor/buddy of mine who sells em here.
