Default Brightest Mustang Headlights 99-04 Mustang

Hello,

I own a Yellow V6 2001 Mustang and I am having some night vision issues, the headlights are very dim. To work around this issue I have installed fog lights, cleaned the headlight lenses, and bought Sylvannia Silverstar Halogen bulbs. They are stock headlights and I have smoked covers on them, (from AmericanMuscle) but with or without the covers they are still VERY dim.
I am wondering what the brightest 99-04 headlights are that I could buy for my Stang and where the best place would be to buy them. Thanks guys!

-Nathan

Raxiom Smoked Dual Halo Projector Mustang Headlights - LED (99-04) at AmericanMuscle.com

I am wondering about these. Has anyone had experience with projector lights? I would figure that they would be a good deal brighter than stock mustang headlights!

I hooked up a relay on the lights and they run off the battery directly.

Projectors no good? Where would be a good place to buy some HIDs?

If you don't want HID's because of cost get PIAA. They are really good for the price.

But American Muscle didn't seem to carry HID lights, or are projector lights and HID the same exact thing?

Sacramento mustang sells HID kits for late model mustangs. I've bought tons of stuff from them over the years they're great to deal with. Their website is a little confusing however, go to 79-2004 and look under accessories I would link to my post but I can't seem to make it work.

Ohhh, it is an actual bulb? I already have some silverstar halogens that should be real good. I think its the fact that they are nine years old and stock headlights.
