Headlights

Which smoked headlights should I get from AM?
I'm getting smoked stock tails. And I don't wanna spend 240 on the halos.

I have some halos that I'm selling for $150. But if your going for smoked, go to latemodelrestoration.com and they have some really smoked ones for 100, then put in an HID kit. Better vision and they look sick.

I always liked the eBay ones that are a static cling tint. They're like $12 bucks shipped and I think tinkerbell's mustang has them

Just search "mustang tail light tint" on eBay
"99-04 mustang smoke tail light tint cover blackout gt"
Search that on eBay to find the static tint I'm talking about.

Do the halos look good anyway? And if you want halos just go to www.carid.com much cheaper for all lights

Halos look like import crap and those cheap hid's just add to the ricer feel. I can't help but laugh at every mustang i see with halo headlights or those gay altezza taillights.

To me the best looking aftermarket ones are smoked clear corner lights.

I could never do that to rose! And the 55w ones overload them and burn out the halos, the 35w ones run fine.

I had halos I like how they look but they aren't any brighter. Hid are the best bright and look good.

True, HID's will burn the inside of the light.
