LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!!!!

And who was bitching about this bumper!!! I'm sure there will still be some who don't like it....as I've read. But, this bumper looks phenomenal. I'd almost have to see them side by side to make my choice. But, this is probably going to be the one that takes the cake.

Just LOOK at that first picture! Gorgeous!!!!! Love the all black grill, the single headlight look, the black bowtie....freaking amazing!

i think i like this one over the new one...

i just want the concept or the closest approximation to it as possible...

the new grille makes it look like a mustang or charger

Edit: on second thought i don't know...after looking at both...i need a side-side shot and hopefully we get an option

Those bulbs likely are Halogens, but not HID's. A Halogen is not the same thing as an HID -- HID's use an electrical charge to ignite gas (often Xenon) in a sealed bulb, and do not have a filament. Halogen bulbs use a tungsten filament surrounded by a halogen gas (often iodine, or bromide) to help extend the efficiency and potency of the filament.

Hopefully the HID 'halo' lamps will still be available, as an option. If not, I suspect several 3rd party vendors will be all over that opportunity left sitting on the table for some easy revenue.

Thanks for the run down but i understand the technology. I have a non-projector (reflector) HID type setup on the TL and only image it get's better with a projector setup. What i was getting at is that if the setup were at least projector housings, you could buy ballasts/bulb kit and upgrade it yourself.

Don't worry, yet. This still isn't a full, Production intent car. Either it could be Halos and we just can't tell, or this is a different light, perhaps meant for certain trim-levels but not others.

Besides, even Fbodfather was joking about "polishing his Halo headlights", so they do exist....

Because it was still more 'complete' than this one...

I agree w/ Chevydude26. Keep working on it. I like the previous one better. This one is too bulky and completely loses any retro feel. Looks to me like a cheap aftermarket piece that some ex-ricer would throw on it.

This car looks awesome. It seems think this is an older mule and they put the new SS front end and production headlights on. Probably some late testing to make sure the signals and grills work like they should. Look at the difference in paint, the new front end is a lot more shiny than the rest of the car.

Ok after looking at the headlights the bulbs don't look like regular halogens and look at the silver ring around the bulb inside the plastic, looks like the halos we saw on the SS convertible

Front plate even looks good, maybe I will be legal after all

before i pass final judgement we got like a weird angle insteas of a straight front picture...also i would like to see what the golden bowtie would look like on this

one of the things hurting this is the angle of the picture and it lacks color and its too black

silver grille with golden bowtie would improve its blandness

Looking closely at the second picture, you can tell that the upper grille isn't quite production ready yet. There's a gap between the top of the grille and the bottom of the body. But at least it looks like it will be an easy rip'n'replace job to put something that looks better there, like polished or powdercoated billet.

If the production grille comes out looking that cheap, I'm pretty sure it will be one of the first mods I do...c'mon aftermarket - lots of money to be made here! The rest of the car looks great but the plashit grille will have to go.

Oh, and it looks like the intake is open but just feeds to the radiator like it was part of the grille. Hmmm, leaving the ability to mod and route air into the airbox from in front of the radiator....have to think about that if ram-air isn't offered as an option.
