That's a great question. There are a lot of ups and down to each headlights for me.

Machs:
Ups- they look awesome with all the separate lights IMO. I really like the built in projectors and HID kit.
Downs- chrome...... That is all. I know they can be painted black, but that defeats the quality of the lights.

Depos:
Ups- they are pretty rare. (here in the US at least) I really dig the black housing models (what a surprise) and i like the setup of them with the signals in the corners.
Downs- Regular bulbs. That is all. I know they can be retrofitted with projectors, but again, it can defeat the quality of the lights.

So if it would be possible to retrofit a projector kit and the HID kit similar to the Mach, i would go with the Depos.

Or you could just buy the stuff and retrofit a set of stock headlights. Same difference.
