Look great, but . . .
These lights look great, and will definitely make your Mustang stand out in a crowd. But if you want better nighttime illumination, look elsewhere. The low beams are adequate at best, and the high beams are pretty much useless, even though I replaced the original bulbs with Sylvania Silverstars. The factory headlights illuminate much better than these, and I'm seriously thinking of switching back. Installation is the same for most Mustang headlights, you have to remove to the front bumper cover. That part wasn't so bad; the problem was accommodating the adjustment screws. I had to cut out a portion of the sheet metal behind each headlight housing so I would be able to access the screws and aim the lights once they were mounted. And as other reviewers mentioned, aiming the lights is very difficult. For some reason, the low beams have 2 adjustment screws each, requiring the use of a Phillips stubby. The high beams have 3 adjustment screws each, requiring the use of either a flathead stubby or an 8mm socket. There is no explanation as to which screw does what, and some screws turn smoothly while others are almost impossible to turn and/or don't seem to do anything when they do. The rubber boot protecting the opening in the back falls off easily and has to be checked regularly so that water doesn't seep inside. In conclusion, even though these lights are of low quality and cheaply made, if you want your 'Stang to look cool for show purposes, go ahead and buy them. If you want to see better at night, buy something else.
