New Headlight Questions

Where did everyone buy theirs from? The lowest price I've found is right around $60 (Headlights to Taillights) I'm questioning quality of the company. Where has everyone bought theirs from? Happy with quality? Fit good? Or is it worth getting them from Ford at the ungodly high price?

Thanks

I got my headlights from the website you mentioned and they were motorcraft OEM. Made a HUGE difference in the brightness of my lights at night (i've even had people flash there lights at me!) I used to think I had bad night vision, but it was just my crudded up full of water headlights. Not to mention with those new bulbs the car looks much newer.


It was the best $140 bux I spent on my bird.

agreed. when I cleaned up my 91's lights and put in some high wattage bulbs (and a competition limited harness) the difference was amazing.

I've tried everything to clean up my lights and there's still yellow around the edges and it drives me nuts. I'm finall fed up with it and am just going to get new lights and stop screwing with it. Just making sure there isn't a better deal out there than $60 for new lights.. mind you, it's just the capsule - no lights come with it. To get bulbs or whatever with it, it was like $95.

headlights to taillights and you can't go wrong like greenbird said, very worthwhile.

Edit: When I ordered mine, they were actually a little cheaper than dan newman over at 5 star.
