Finally did a cosmetic upgrade. Pics included

Decided the exterior of my mustang finally needed some attention. One of the things I missed most about my 14 v6 were the head and tail lights, especially since the headlights on the 10-12 models look really dated and don't really look all that great if you didn't have HIDs. I already knew I would be changing them but wasn't about to cough up a bunch of cash for the factory HID headlights so I planned on buying the raxiom headlights. However when I went to buy them american muscle had just added some new dual projector LED headlights, bought them instantly along with the saleen grill since I was going to be removing the bumper anyway. Since they are so new I figured id share some comparison pics because I am so happy with how this turned out, I can also actually see at night too which is a plus.

Looks sharper than a bowl of razor blades! Are the headlights spec-d?

I thought that's why we drive the retro styled 'stangs because we like dated.

In my opinion original OEM headlights look much better than "4 eye Raxioms".

+1 IMO, sorry, would look better with just 1 round HID light in each housing. Those look too non-muscle car to me.

Haha quite the difference in opinions on headlights around here. It wasn't really the largeness of the headlights that I didn't like. The reflective housings just stick out like a sore thumb on the front end and in my eyes the front just looks a lot cleaner and more aggressive now.
