Cool 1er Headlight / Taillight Mod

I wished the headlights and taillights of the 1er were a little more streamline, sleeker, sexier, and sportier like the 3er coupes. IMHO, the 1er headlight is too doh-eyed, too wide-eyed. And the 1er taillight is too chunky with too many right angles on the top edge.

I Photoshop'd some photos to see what it would look like and I think it's an improvement over stock. I added eyelids to the front headlights and rear taillights. Now I just have to wait for someone to make an aftermarket mod for these areas.

What do you think?

You buy a BMW because a BMW is just a BMW.
Modding is not recommended at those cars

I think it makes the 1 look more Mongoloid than sleepy.
