Please Vote On These LED Rings

A small debate came up on whether these replacements Angel Eyes looked good or bad on the E38. Some think they are modern and others think it takes away from their classic look. Please vote your heart and not your loyalties.
This is not voting on them for E46s.
*(If you are sponsored by or close friends to someone who makes/sells these and don't feel you can give an unbiased vote please refrain. If your can please do.)

So far not a fan of the LED versions. When someone comes out with a version that has more LED's so that they don't have that "dotted" look to them or adds a light diffuser so they look more like the regular ones I will buy. Until then, I prefer the old ones.

For the people that did like it, I would hold on to your wallets, as well as the people who said NO, We have a major announcement on something new and special. New announcement on angel eyes should be coming early next week... Stay tuned!

Yeah I love these new led look too, but they're for modern cars since they were based off audi's new look.

They are a cool look but I prefer the older CCFL look.

Like I said in the other thread, I don't think any Halos on that car look that great... too old of a design IMO
