    How good are these? I was thinking of doing HID conversion to substatially increase the light output (drive a lot at night, could really use it), but I really wanted to run them through projector, so they would not blind anyone else infront of me. I recently bought a pair real cheap, but did not get them yet. Does anyone have these? Here is the picture of the product in question. Jacked the picture off mustang tuning, but rehosted it.

    Does it come as a kit, or do I have to retrofit stuff?

    Since they are cheap, I might try them both, if I'm not satisfied with APC ones. I can always return them. Thanks for letting me onto Depo lights however, I did not know they made those for Mustang. My friend is running those I think on his M3. They work pretty nice last I checked.

    the quality is pretty good. only had mine for a week, I got the black ones. I used to have the one piece ones they sell on ebay that have the dual angel eyes and the APC ones blow those away.

    They are a pretty heavy light and they have a glass lens.

    The APC ones are glass and well made but just like all "cheap" projectors for Mustangs the projector lense is junk. As long as you get the HID kit to go with them you will have good lighting...otherwise it will be as shitty as stock. You could always change the interior lense for one from an Audi/BMW if you want real quality lights in a stang.

    Well, it's confirmed. APC SUCK. They don't line up, they don't put any light down on the road, and they are even worse with HIDs installed. What a waste of money. Oh, and when I recieved them, I had to take one of them apart because the the assholes who assembled them put one reflector in upside down.

    Decided to go w/o projectors, just get clear housings and put HID in those. Inside is a 4300K kit, and I will take pictures when it gets dark.

    hey man i have those exact headlights. im not to fond of them really, but with HID it may be allright. like said before APC=junk and its true. I got mine brand new and the seals went bad after a few months so now there is moisture inside the lenses.
