Re: Post your ride

If you get them, get the clear lenses -- some of the halo manufacturers offer these exact headlights with black "smoked" covers and they look awesome (I have a set) -- but even with upgraded HID bulbs, they're very weak. With halogen bulbs (what they come with for those that don't want the expense and trouble of installing HIDs), they're impossible. I had them installed and would turn them on at night and think "They're malfunctioning". Step out of the car, walk around front -- and sure as s--t, the lights are on but no one is shining anything out the front of the car. Heck, the fog lights were brighter than them -- until I installed HIDs. The HID setup helped a great deal -- but they're still not all that bright. Checking out a couple of cars that have the clear lense setup tells me that it's the way to go. Be prepared for some complexity if you decide to do this -- I wired the setup myself and love the look of the things, but am swapping to a set of clear lenses soon, as I simply want to be able to see more easily at night.

This is where I love a set of good removable smoked headlight covers. I agree that the smoked lenses are boarderline dangerous at night. I'm thinking of a hid setup but there are stupid laws here. I've got to have special hid housings etc etc...

I had headlamps tail lamps and fogs done for 250. You should be able to get just the headlamps for around 100-125. Just find a good quality body shop and make sure to tell them light smoke.

you drop that thing 2 inches and kiss the cobra r bumper bye bye I am currently buying one to use for my dip setup because daily driving a Cobra R bumper on a lowered stang is suicide.
