Re: headlights

Your headlights are 9007's, that's what will fit, none of the others will fit.

Re: headlights

My personal experience with headlights and foglights are to just buy the Sylvania Silverstars, these are the best ones I have found so far for driving and looks both.

I tried several sets of bulbs, HID simulators and everything and all of them sucked driving at night, you couldn't see anything but reflectors and signs.

Re: headlights

As far as I know the numbers for headlights in 94-04 mustangs are 9007 for the headlights. For the foglights I can't tell you off the top of my head because I have different lights now in my Roush bumper.

Re: headlights

They give a true white light, not blue. The blue is only good for having blue headlights, they suck at night and especially in the rain.

If you want HID's buy a HID conversion kit, the only way to really get the true HID look.

Re: headlights

You can get them from Wally World and any of the car parts stores. They run about 20 a piece for the headlights, but worth it IMO. I finally had my first one go out the other day, 5 years, not too shabby for a headlight.

Just remember you may get a different "look" out of those headlights but you won't get better performance. Any time you tint a bulb you get less light out. You may think it is brighter because of the color difference but in reality it won't be.

Re: headlights

I had silverstars before. I don't remember how long I had them but I'm pretty sure it was longer than that. Then again I guess it depends on how much you drive at night. The reason why they don't last as long is because in order to compensate for the degraded performance from the tint, they have to "overdrive" the filament. I think the next time I need bulbs I'm going to try these. suvlights.com PHILIPS- VisionPlus +50%- Pair H1, H3, H7, 9003/H4, 9004/HB1, 9005/HB3, 9006/HB4 They won't last as long as usual bulbs but they will perform better.

Re: headlights

I bought a set of silverstars in 02, one of them burned out last week, that should give you a good timeframe. Just be sure not to touch the bulb with your bare hand...probably the reason so many ppl have problems with them burning out. The oil off your fingers causes the lights to burn out prematurely.

Re: headlights

And I'll go ahead and tell you with blue bulbs you will hate driving at night...can't see the damn road, all you can see are signs, and they'll blind you. Driving at night in the rain with blue bulbs you can't see anything.

thats because the "Blue" look coating blocks all light but blue, thus the actual light emitted is a bluish tint. blocking light = less actual light is being projected.

Id go with the Sylvania Silverstars as well. 9007 for headlights, and IIRC its H3's for your lower bumper driving lights, same with the Roush ones.

If you have the money, id get a HID kit. Mine came with my car, after blowing a bulb i converted back to standard halogen (with silverstars) and it was like i was blind. I have 12k HID's for headlights and 10k for the fogs. When i was on halogens, you could see the fog light's emitted light better than the Halogens. Made me realize how ****ty halogen is compared to HID, and made me get a replacement bulb that much faster to get my HID's back in. as for the light dispersal pattern being different and blinding everyone else on the roadway, i dont give a ****, however ive yet to get someone flashing their high's at me, and the garage-door test the dispersal patterns were almost the same.

Re: headlights

I got those Luminics Pure White 9007 / HB5 bulbs when I replaced my headlights the other day. I think they look really nice, it reminds me of an Infiniti's headlight color. Nice white color, with a slight blue look to it. Much nicer than the stock lights and incredibly easy to replace.

Mine weren't that great at night. So I put the stockers back in.

I miss my blue headlights too.
