'01-'04 Mustang or Cobra headlights are the same. They are considered 'darkened' or 'smoked'. Personally, I'm trying to replace my sun faded/cracked '00 stock OEM headlights with '01-'04 smoked headlights. Much more muscular look, IMHO.

Trust me. The difference between Cobra headlights and Mustang headlights for '01-'04 have absolutely no difference.

You gonna get the '03 Cobra wiper arms?

They don't come up on high speeds for anyone that want's to know. Like $35 for a pair.

They're the exact same as the 01 up headlights for ANY mustang. The 'blackout' design was origionally used on the 2000 cobra R, then was used on all mustangs the following year, as I recall.

I'm pretty sure. the disign, excerp for the color (form mirrored to blacked out rims) hasn't changed at all since 99. But it never hurts to be 100% sure about it.

my main concern was a possible fitment issue, since the cobra hood and bumper are different I didnt know if the lights may have attached to the alignment panel different or if the panel its self may have been different.
