Its interesting... if you did some sort of bar it may look better. Did you aim the LEDs down at the bumper for a reason? seems like that

It would look much better if it flowed all the way down the outer sides. It just cuts off abruptly while the rest of the shape flows smoothly downward.

I think they would look a lot better in a sealed housing like how Hella has them. The fitment looks a lot more OEM

I want it... but I know it appeals more to the ricer side of me.
I don't think I could pull the trigger on a product like this as is.

It is OK I guess but it is an Audi copycat.

There is a "pimp-o-liscous" E90 335 in my neck of the woods with the LED strip mounted just below the angel eyes. Total Audi rip-off. I can't help but assume "tool" when I see it....

The OP's application is interesting, but not my cup of tea.

IMO Its a cool idea.... I think you should try tucking it in the bumper so you cant actually see the strip and have the holes illuminate; you wouldn't be able to see it in the day but it will look pretty cool at night.
