Re: HELP ME!!

those are hid's correct? If not get some hid's and those covers will drastically reduce your headlight brightness

Re: HELP ME!!

Either get some HID's or just live with it. I got some of those silverstars which are supposed to be the best and couldnt tell a difference. I dont know what it is about the mustang headlights.

Re: HELP ME!!

...pull the covers off at night....It's the LEGAL thing to do...

I've tried to drive with those on at night and it just doesn't work, I don't think HID's will help much.

Re: HELP ME!!

If money isn't tight may I suggest these sir?Dark Smoked Mustang Headlights (99-04) at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping! You will still have the smoked look and a little more light will come through although not as much as stock headlights would. Combine with hid's and that should solve your problems.

Re: HELP ME!!

Re: HELP ME!!

unless you want to buy HIDs that are not made for your headlight housing, that dont work very well compared to a real projector system, and are illegal to run as well and will blind people (but not so much since you have head light covers) then you can go with a HID system~ for about 200-400 bucks.
