Lose the Eyebrows ?

So, here's a different approach. This is a crudely done Photoshop, but it shows what the car might look like if the hood is extended on the sides and the eyebrow lights (city lights) are eliminated.

I'd guess this would take a fair bit of work. Maybe a custom shop would tackle it? To make the computer 'like it', one might have to put something else in there to look like the eyebrows ...

Probably would also want to eliminate the side markers ....

Interesting idea, but I kinda like the eylids. It would definitely make yours stand out in a crowd, though.

I would say no (but it's your car).

No worries, I was just trying to see what it might look like with that area metal instead of lit plastic. Those eyebrow/eyelid/city lights just strike me as a bit off in the styling department, that's all.

thanks for the comments!

IMO the eyelids are one of the cars most prominent styling cues.
