Difference between headlights...

Hi guys

Basically, we're mildly modifying the Clio we have. Nothing OTT, and where possible, OEM in looks. We've just had the passenger wing and door resprayed, so whilst at it we had the bumper and door strips done too. We also picked up a set of 15" Renault Clio alloys from a breakers and ditched the crappy aftermarket 14's that came on it. Changed the repeaters to clear ones etc...the car is really coming together-see pic here, or more here. But i digress!

Now we've had the bumper strips re-sprayed, we think the car looks a little bland from the front. We want to add foglights (but i'm being put off by all the wiring that isn't there), but an easier mod in the meantime would be to change the headlights. Whats the difference between our ones and the ones on the green Clio (aside the obvious visual difference)? And what Clio's should those headlights be on?

If i were to find a set of these lights, would they be a direct replacement for the standard ones or do they need additional wiring? As it's only our daily runner, i don't want anything to complex to put in. But from a looks perspective, what do others think? Do our current ones look better or the Sport ones look better? Bear in mind the car may get foglights, but will def. be getting lowered between 20/30mm too. Opinions/advice welcomed!
