Post Halos or retro fit or both?

I'm trying to decide whether or not I should do custom halos around the headlight and parking light (not custom make but buy them and put them in) or should I do retro fit projectors? Or do both? But here is the thing, I want to make it stand out and look custom of course. I want to go the in expensive route. Or just save up and do it all together. I just don't know what to do. If anybody could help me out that would be great. I would also like it if someone had photo shop and time on there hands to photo shop a picture of one with projectors and halos and one with just halos. I would REALLY appreciate that. Thank you!

-Jordan

That would be sweet to do retrofits.
are you going to paint the headlight housing black or leave it chrome?
either way it would look pretty cool.

I would like to do retro fits. I'll probably be painting them black but the corners would have to be black and I think that is a PITA to get apart. And if I get the right color halos and not do retro fit, that would be sick as well. I still don't know but thanks for your input.

Anyone else?

What about projectors and halos. The halos from the retro fit source website. Nothing man made with house hold items .

In the picture, looks like the parking lights circle looks just about the same as the circle around the projector. What do you think?

Well I just did the math and I can get the upgrade kit to go with my HID kit I have for 240 which includes everything including the halos for the projectors. It would be an extra 30 for another set of halos for the parking lights but i don't know if I should do that. I could just get some LED strips and place them along the bottom of the headlight to have that Audi/Lexis effect.

Dude make some cool design with the leds or have it start up on the parking light then come down along the bottom of the headlight or something unique

Yup that's what I was thinking. But I won't be doing this anytime soon. I riding around with no insurance because the insurance people received my payment a day late so they cut us off and now I have to pay a re connection type fee of 400 dollars!!!! Fuck them! But that's a weeks pay so I'm good. I just going to pay that and then I have to pay my bank loan and after that save save save lol. I'll probably save up through this month and next month and do this in May (hopefully before my meet in VA) and before I pick my dad up from the airport . But yeah, I am definitely doing this projectors and halos around that and the LED side emit strips. Can't wait.
