round headlights please!!! those robotic rectangular ones give the new bus a "cold" personality! if they want to capture the spirit of the old bus, nothing screams retro like round headlights!! after all, would you call the new beetle a new beetle if it had square headlights?
unless, of course, it's a mullholland look NB...
I'd say the round likes are much more likely than the robolights of the concept version. It was obviously made in a time during which Volkswagen was doodling around, trying to evolve its design language. And the way Volkswagen is going is best seen in concepts like the Magellan and the Concept R: IOW, roundish, swooping headlights. So, I'd bet on seeing round headlamps in the production Microbus http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

A photoshop picture of the bus with round headlights used to be on VWVortex, but I can't find it. I have it on my computer but it is a 'mix' file, I'll see if I can convert it to a 'jpg' so I can get it up here.
We currently drive a Honda Odyssey as our family car, we are waiting for the Microbus to be our next family car. I think I prefer the concept headlights instead of the round ones though...it gives it a tougher, modern image that doesn't try to be retro.
Either way...please provide a version with TDI, AWD and a six-speed tiptronic or DSG - my wife wants an automatic, please give us the best!!!
