If there was a generel formula for what a nice headlight is, I'm sure BMW would have designed it like that. The problem is that it is a matter of taste, and we all have different taste. According to my taste, the competing cars from Mercedes Benz have ugly headlights, and the design of the F20 is miles ahead of the A class.
I think the designers have a general idea about what kinds of designs suit the different markets. My guess is that the 2 series will be slightly more in line with typical American taste than the F20.
