    They look nice! I bought the older style smoked cobra headlights from LMR several years ago, looks like they have the same set that American Muscle has. They were not available for a while. These Look a lot lighter than the older ones.

    May just pick a set up myself for the new vert!

    Here's the style from 4-5 years ago on my old vert.

    Correct they are the Cobra Style smoked lights. Fitment was great on these. Looks like the newer ones are a bit lighter on the tint but otherwise the same...

    I bought them last May. Leak like a sieve. I obviously didn't seal them thorough enough with clear silicone. Im still not sure if water penetrates around seal or the tiny hole in back of fixture, there for vent possibly & seen in inside corner of headlights in pic below .
    Look good though.

    Not as good as stock. They came with really bright bulbs, but still were not even close to stock for light output. Most likely why they are lighter on the tint now.

    I had no problems seeing at night and it never really bothered me to much. But it would not be a bad idea to drop in a HID setup if its in your budget... Never hurts to install them and see if it fits into what you are willing to accept for lighting.

    That leaking sounds like a PITA. They do look good though!

    I have the oe smoked cobra set from LMR. Look amazing, fit great but I feel the light output is low. Then again I'm used to hid/led lights in my other vehicles, so I might just be a whiner

    Not sure which bulb is which... I think the bluer bulb is the Raxiom bulb and the other one is the one that came with the headlights... I honestly forgot lol

    Refer to my build thread in my sig to see the light output of HIDs without projectors.

    Yeah.. Just getting some ideas because I'm going insane with the way these lights fit.. Keep adjusting and adjusting and all I'm doing is getting frustrated.. Still can't get them to sit right.

    Found an old thread showing how to really adjust them. Hopefully i can mess with em and make em look right, would really hate to waste $$ on another set when these are fine other than adjustment being off

    Those look just like mine but without the reflector.
    I think the description Joe gave was vague.. There are two different ones. The ones you posted that are 'Smoked OE Cobra Style Headlights"
    And there are these, "Black Cobra Style Headlights", which is what I have.

    side note, the hell is going on with the weird camber on the driver side wheel?
