Gimme a stern frown any day. Who wants a sad, droopy lookin' car?

Please note: I don't find any E46 to be either sad or droopy looking - and I'm not all that enamored with the front clip on my car. If I could spare the cash, I'd have me the one from the Performance package.

Me, and the M Division - you don't see any facelift on the M3.

I prefer the old look, but the new look does not look all that bad in real life. I prefer the new look because it doesn't have any amber casing (looks good) but I think the old look would really only work with amber casing because it makes the eyes stand out.
