Headlight Decision

I am getting ready to order a set of Premium LED Headlights from John Audette, I cannot decide on Black or Silver Facia. Any thoughts?

I like the silver inner surround. It camouflages better.
The black looks too busy and weird on a classic car.

Thatís my opinion.

to each their own of course, but... you asked 8 )

I've never (ever) understood the black trim rings - look like Spot (I think that was the dog's name) from 'Lil Rascals? Just. Does. Not. Look. Good. At all. On any 911 I've seen. Ever.

Sorry brutha.

Also agree w/ Jacob about the reflectors, but that's a different convo 8-)

Enjoy, regardless of my useless opinion! Report back how you like the lights!

Ha! NP at all. I decided on the silver/chrome reflectors like stock. I currently have both black trim rings and painted. I kind of like the black with the Prussian Blue, and all the black trim. I can always easily go with painted if desired.

Hope all is well with you and family.

Tim.

ah - I was going to say maybe on certain colors... but still 8 )... just looks like bad bad bad mascara to me mostly

I nevvvvvvvvvvvver liked chrome rings until I saw them in person, esp on my H1's... give the car suuuuuch a bright happy look and make the headlights look way way bigger esp from afar... super dig the look vs. painted, threw my painted rings on shelf to never be seen again (not matching the black trim, bedamned!)

my $0.00002 of course

All swell here, thankfully - thanks! Hope same fer you and yers down thar!

Again def report back w/ pics 'n impressions upon install... lighting improvement will be dramatic
