What is everyone using for headlight bulbs besides the OEM bulbs? I can't see at night so I need something bright. Got a set of the Silverstar bulbs and those are not much better. I did not realize that changing these bulbs are such a pain, especially on the passenger side. There is no room over there to see and you have to unscrew the little screw that holds the bulb in.


When I had my Camaro I found some cheap lights on Ebay that worked great. I can't seem to find the same ones for the Mustang.

Led lights are bright and about $50- $100 on amazon. They're plug and play. I use the highest Silverstone ultra and they work great. A lot of cars think I have my brights on when I don't.

If its a 2013, it came with factory HIDs. Not gonna be any drop-in bulbs that are drastically brighter.
There are the recently released Osram Night Breaker 66340XNB bulbs which are supposed to be brighter, but not much testing is out on them. These are the only ones I'd bother to try, but they are expensive.
Anything LED will be worse.
Anything "cheap on ebay" will be worse.

Then the osram night breakers are the only upgrade. But it will only be a minor upgrade unless your stock bulbs are starting to wear out

If your bulbs are D3S, there is no way that you could have used Silverstar bulbs like your first post says.

Besides trying night breakers like noldevin suggested your only other option would be to open your headlight assemblies and replace the projector with a better unit. You can research all about that at http://www.hidplanet.com also.

Correct, I should of been more specific. I have Silverstar in my wife's car and I could barely tell the difference.

These are the headlights I took out of the car. I will be putting them back in.
Those are the standard OEM bulbs. The night breakers will be a slight upgrade, but short of opening up the housings and putting a better projector in, you aren't going to get any kind of drastic improvement.

Definitely LED lights. I got mine on Amazon $50-$75. Changed fog lights and headlights.

Get your LEDs 6000k temperature if you like bright white.

Really? My OEM HID's are ridiculously bright. To the point that my girl refuses to ever buy another car without them. She has a 15 Taurus with halogens and it's miserable.

No drop-in LEDs are ever going to be any better than the factory HIDs
That being said, the stock projector on these cars is kinda lame. You can run slight upgrade bulbs like the nightbreakers, or you can retrofit a better projector/bulb combo in.
No aftermarket housing currently available is going to offer better lighting, and most of them are leaky junk as well.
