Those are awesome! The 99 feels a little weak starting off but my last stick shift had 4:10 gears. I'm hoping that is why it seems such.

I did notice it seemed instead of throwing the stick up it was some what angled. I wonder if they all feel like this or it was just me. The car only has 78000 miles so that is really low for a 99. I 'm trading my 04 Hemi ram for it.

That's sweet. Do they ride good?

---------- Post added at 09:13 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:09 AM ----------

I found some cobra r's for sale I believe they should fit just fine. The 20's on my truck ride great but they have alot of rubber between rim and pavement.

I lucked up when i bought some hid lights for my ram several years ago cause they fit the mustang as well. I highly suggest getting them if you drive at night.Just took'em back out of truck.

Be sure not to get a knock off I bought my kit in 2004 although at that time they were for off road show use. Pilot is a good brand has been for me. I've only changed bulbs once about 2 months ago. I pass alot of people and have yet to seen any bulbs superior to these.

Definitely! They're very bright. Go 4300k/4500k - 6000k for the brightest though. Any higher than that and you stop getting any more usable light.

R the ebay hid lights any good? I've heard a lot of bad things about them being cheaply made and the 4500-6000k wasn't true readings
