    Hi everyone. It's time to replace my 97 cobra's headlights. They're all fogged up and have condensation in them. I've been checking out some options on American Muscle and a few other sites. I really like the the dual LED Halo lights like the ones in the link below.

    The issue is no matter what brand I look at, many of the reviews state that they don't fit very well or where really difficult to install. I was curious if anyone had experience with these type of headlights and could either recommend some better options or tell me that I'm just being a wuss and they're easy to install and work well.

    Thanks!

    To be fair none of these headlights will be like oem since theyre not made by the oem supplier. With that said there is a chance they wont fit perfectly. I wouldnt sweat it though plus American Muscle is a great company and will make it right if youre not 100% satisfied.

    In my personal opinion they look horrible and typically fit horribly.

    I would recommend looking at retrofitting projectors into a oem style headlight.
    Also, for aftermarket headlights I'd buy DEPO again.

    Thanks for the advice. The DEPO's look nice and very affordable.
