must be a head light mod week or some thing lol
No, its a conspiracy! Ford has a huge overstock on headlamps and decided to revive the headlamp mod on this forum, knowing we will all break them and have to order more from the dealership.

Does anyone know where I can see a pic of the blue instead of black??

Now I just have to join everyone and get the marker lights done. Did the headlights at around 2,000 miles and it now has 18,000. I think I need to do the markers soon.

That looks great. Thanks for the pic.

I'm still debating on the black or blue. I'll make up my mind once I get these.

I think the rivets on the edges are hideous, besides that they are ok.

Mine are similar, but I LED'ed 'em with L1224R bulbs.





I didnt want tail lights that looked "aftermarket", I wanted ones that matched what my evo has. These were as close as I could get
