personally, i am a fan of the original 3 piecers. i know they get that "nicotine" look when theyre older, but i really like the yellow lenses on the corner and inner lights. i actually had a lot of luck with a "Flitz" buffer thingy, you hook it to a drill and buff. did wonders on my head lights.

but i guess for you, the 1 piecers would be an easier install, but what if one breaks? you gotta replace the whole thing. with 3p iecers, if you break a corner lamp, or a head lamp, you dont need to replace the whole thing. i think both look great, so its up to you really. i would just avoid those goofy "diamond cut" ones that are all blinged out. im not too fond of the black ones either. but thats all personal pref.

good luck!

true statement about the cracking issue.i think i just might go with the one piece black chrome dimond cut.but do you know where you can get the regular clear 3 pieces from i think i looked on ebay but i wa unable to find a lot of them..

the diamond cut is just an appearance thing. its like a bling bling headlight. i think its kinda queer, but thats just me.

well i mean is it on the clear part(lense) of the headlight? or on the back part behind the bulb? I was thinking of getting these 1pc units that look almost exactly like the 2000+ mustangs with the clear lense and black housing with i little bit of reflecting chrome behind the bulb. Is this the "queer" diamond cut you are talking about. I think these look cool. They are identical to the new mustangs only shaped to fit a fox.

Looks a little like a ricer euro style headlight to me. I personally prefer the look of either the original style 3 piece or the clear corner 3 piece that looks pretty much like original without the yellow.

personally I like the all black no chrome, if I was keeping my stang then I'd go with the all black 1 peice set, you can get them off ebay for appx. 125 to 200 and they in my opinion would look fat as hell...:eyepoppin

I got my 3 piece headlights with clear corners (all original ford equipment, not reproductions) for around $130 from www.blueovalindustries.com they are located in VA and i ordered my lights on monday and they were at my house on wednesday! they have a good selection of parts for the fox. i'd highly recommend them, but you need to find some yellow bulbs that emit the same color. the first set of bulbs i bought were two different colors. other than that, i prefer the clear OEM lights.
