Im just curious how many people like these new headlights. personally i liked the E39 headlights better. i know BMW is trying to make the cars more curvy but i love the hard edges of BMW's tha mix in with the smooth lines of the body.

i like the 5's headlights. they give it a more agressive look

not calling the old 5 series lights boring but the new lights definately stand out more on the road

i would definately take a 04 5 series over an 03, but im sure many people might think differently

They look good. But they are not BMWish anymore. It lost the aggressivity, in my opinion.
'03 and '04 BMWs are different all together unlike previous changes where it was just made better keeping the same looks.

I would lil more inclined to buy '03 than '04 if I could get HUD, active steering control, park control and all those new features with it.

I like them, especially the LED eyebrow. Very distinctive and eye catching, you'll notice straightaway its a 5 Series behind you.

Yea the newer e39 headlights are sweet but I like that BMW made a change in them. They are aggressive looking but do lack the BMW feel like TheHire said.

Sorry I'm not better at photoshop
