99-04' Headlight install and comparison



99-04 Mustang Headlight Install and Comparison

It is a known fact that 99-04 Mustang headlights fade and begin to look pretty ugly. If you have been thinking about replacing your 99-04 Mustang headlights, we did some of the leg work for you. We took the 4 most popular headlight kits we offer and installed them for a comparison. To further help you we walked you through the extremely easy install for the headlights. Check out the blog and let me know what you think.

Great job, a clean and factual comparison.

However as a devoted New-Edge owner I object to your statement singling out "99-04 Mustangs" as suffering from this syndrome and would put forth that it's a known fact that the crummy plastic headlights on all 8 to 13 year old cars fade and begin to look crummy--and some much sooner than that!.

Some of the worst here in Florida are found on Mercedes'...

The headlights on my wife's 2003 Toyota Highlander with 165k miles are as clear as when new, those on my daughter's 2003 Sienna are clouded all to heck--the difference is that the Highlander has always been garaged, the Sienna sits in my daughter's driveway because their garage is full of crap that would not fetch more than $250 at an estate sale...
