Which OSS do you prefer? Half or full circle?

I am looking to get OSS style headlights on my e92. My friend is trying to convince me to get the full circles, I am leaning towards the oem style look. What do you guys prefer?

It's purely personal preference, but I'd recommend that you go with your instincts: OEM look. I did that and really like the way it maintains the factory appearance while dramatically improving the look of the eyes.

I'm not a fan of the full circle look. Neither is BMW, they're chopping off even more of the top part on the angels now with the new 7, 3, and spy pics on the 5

For a pre-LCI e92, OEM FTW.

What's OEM about this?

Personally I like the cut. Full circle doesn't look right to me.

It's not a full circle, it's OEM cut.
