    i'm going to be getting a new car soon. can't decide between the 2004 and 2005. i love them both >_< here are some pics, what do you guys think? one things for sure, i won't have a front lip, because i don't want to deal with angling up steep driveways. so in the end, which set of headlights look better? thanks! (i'll add more pictures later)

    04, the 05 headlights look to busy. And the 04 lip looks better also.

    It's all personal preference. My girl drives a white 03 Type-S but I personally prefer the newer style.

    04's with the bottom swoops covered up.

    You get the exact same shape as the 05's, without the busy look.

    I've seen quite a few 04 show cars do this and it looks great. You just need a bumper that fits over the bottom of the light.

    I like the 04 a little better, the little cuts under the lights add a lot of character to the front of the car, keeps it from looking too much like a Civic.

    That being said, the third light in the 05+ looks cool too... comes down to personal preferance really.

    Pick the one that throws more light.

    But purely on aesthetics, I like the '04 a little better.

    05 front end is secksy, but the 03-04 will prolly be a cheaper car.

    this isnt what u asked, but i like the 05 better cuz it has nicer wheels and i like the tail better.

    The 05 projectors seem like they would illuminate better. But it does look more like a civic up front.....
