4 Stars   Great look, some instructions would have been nice.
By on 1/10/2015
Image uploaded by Sean A. I bought this because my 12 Boss did not come with an option for HID's. The components feel very sturdy and the plugs appear solid and well built. Changing a headlight on the 2012 Mustang is a chore. The passenger side bulb is tucked under the right wing and surrounded by large wire bundles exiting from the main fuse pack that sits behind the headlight. Take your time and move what you can around and it can be done from under the hood. The drivers side is easy, just remove the air box and you could probably sit in the area created.

When I removed the H1 bulb the "orange" o-ring remained in the headlight housing. The new bulbs also come with this same "orange" o-ring, found out the hard way that you don't need both, choose one and save the other just in case.

After trying to fit the Ford headlight "mating ring" into the headlight with the new bulb (which is heavy), I found that the "ring" can be removed from the new LED bulb (twist off) and installed into the headlight. This made it much easier to get the new bulb inserted without having to worry about the Ford "mating ring, bulb into the headlight" dance we all know and love.

This also made it easier to make sure you have the "low beam" LED facing down in the headlight. I tested mine and turned them on just prior to installing them into the headlight to make sure. So far so good, just hope they last a good long time.

2 Stars   Great expectations - Big disappointment
By on 5/17/2015
Based on the several reviews, I was very excited to install this product in my car. The installation was simple, but the kit should include instructions to warn over the LED bulbs orientation. My kit was also incorrectly preset from factory, low beam LED should be facing downwards.

Once everything was installed, I checked the alignment on a flat wall and things were looking good, correct pattern with visible cutoff for not blinding incoming traffic. The brightness is intense, probably too much and you should avoid looking at the lamp once turned on.

After my daylight install, I was excited to drive my car by night, and that’s the moment things started to go wrong. The light energy emitted from the headlights is huge but the result on the street is not impressive at all. It seems that the mirrors of my headlights are not compatible with these bulbs, at least they do not convert all this light energy in increased visibility on the road. Also, the nice cutoff verified during daylight against a 10 feet wall is not visible by night as the light beam seems to be “blurry” on the road.

After that, I tried every possible orientation of the Bulbs and headlight adjustments, no luck.

For me, it did not work, but what I noticed is that the low beam LED will only be reflected over one side of the Headlight mirror (LED Bulb design), while a normal H13 bulb is been reflected on both sides of the headlight mirrors (even in low beam), so these LED are a compromise over a standard H13 and compensate by a huge light energy. For me it did not work and I am back on regular H13.

4 Stars   LED headlight kit 2008 mustang
By on 11/7/2014
The good: appearance, packaging, light output, install ease. This kit IS 100% plug n play, love it!! The light output is amazing!!

The bad: the attachment tabs that hold the bulb housing to the plastic round piece that locks the bulb into the headlight housing are somewhat fragile. Do NOT over tighten.

5 Stars   As the other reviews stated SUPER BRIGHT LEDs no doubt.
By on 3/3/2015
I believe these LEDs actually brighter than my H13 bulbs I replaced. I’m extremely impressed with the quality construction LED metal housing with cooling fins. Heat is extracted through the center of LED mounts and out the rearward exposed metal fin housing with a center stainless steel fine mesh screen to allow cool air in. The ballasts are metal housing encased with quality insulated wiring and threaded metal locking ring connections.

In the past I’ve owned vehicles with easy to damage short life HID burnouts and I just gave away a perfectly good, expensive, 1000 lumens, and 1000 hour rated Sylvania H13 bulbs without the least concern for my new abundant 2800 lumens 30,000 hour rated LEDs.

In comparison for twice the cost I increased my light output by 800 lumens and average life span by 29,000 hours. This is a no brainer purchase.

To help with installation and correct LED low beam bulb alignment to vehicle’s reflector lens make sure when you rotate LED bulbs into place the electrical wire should be facing upward. It’s real easy to install them backwards giving you a super bright spot only twenty yards long directly onto pavement. You’ll know immediately if you do.

If you like nighttime aggressive driving on backcountry roads with tight curves this is a must have.

Thanks again,
LMR

5 Stars   The difference is amazing!
By on 4/30/2016
Image uploaded by Jim S. Just installed these and wow, what a difference from stock halogens. The beam pattern is razor sharp and everything reflective is super bright now (reflectors, street signs, other cars). I'm simply amazed at how much more detail you can see at night.

The install was fairly straightforward on my 2011 GT. the one thing I would reccomend is removing the locking ring from the bulbs and installing it first and then installing the bulb into it. It makes it much easier to get the proper orientation for the low beam LED to point towards the bottom. (Wire will be pointing up after install). No need to remove the bumper on my particular model.

The only cons I have (and I wouldn't call them cons) is that the leds do not really take advantage of the full area of the reflector inside the headlight, but don't let that fool you it's still way way brighter than stock! It also give you a cool halo effect.
And the other one is that the high beams really make very little difference. It helps light up nearby trees and that's about it. But don't let that get you down. The low beams are brighter than any high beams I have ever used.

No additional adjustments were needed. I verified that I'm not blinding other drivers and the beam pattern is spot on. If your looking to improve your night time visibility and modernize your lighting, I highly recommend this high quality kit!

5 Stars   Excellent Value
By on 5/26/2015
Image uploaded by Todd I bought these because I have LED parking and fog lights and they made my headlights look dull and yellowish. The video on the website doesn't do these justice at all. They are super easy to install, took me a little more than a hour including removing and reinstalling the front fascia. I took a picture with one installed on the driver side and standard bulb on the passenger side so you can see the difference. If you are thinking about buying these do it you will not regret it.

5 Stars   Simple and Bright
By on 4/20/2015
About the equivalent of 35W HIDs without the big ballasts and Hi/Low modules. Took about 20 minutes to install. Just verify the orientation of the Low beam and rotate the mount prior to putting them in. Both of mine had the low beam on top when I opened them. Thinking about the kit for the Fog Lights as well but I have 55W HID's currently running there.

5 Stars   LED is the way to go!
By on 3/8/2016
Just installed this headlight kit and I am very happy with the result! The lights are very bright and white in color giving the front end of my mustang a more modern look. Only thing that sucks is having to remove the front bumper. Now I will say this. The bulbs are very bright but you do lose a little bit of shine distance down the road. However, if you have a GT or a V6 with a GT style grill (which I do), there is still plenty of visibility if you run your fogs and headlights together. Also, I made it so that all 4 lights are aimed low to the ground that way I'm not blinding oncoming drivers and when I went for a test drive nobody flashed at me. Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase despite the long install time. I am done with halogens forever and it's good to know that I will probably never have to replace my headlight bulbs again!

5 Stars   Best Lights Ever
By on 3/31/2015
As many of you know mustang headlights just don't shine that good. Even with the Sylvania ultra bulbs my headlights were sad. Now with these LED bulbs its like I had candles for headlights. These are amazing. I started with the LED fogs and they were so incredible I had to get the head light bulbs too. I have these in some smoked halo headlights too and they shine like the space shuttle coming in for a landing at night! Install is very straight forward. I used some 3m double stick to hold down the ballast. All very simple to do. I put the fogs in a roush bumper and wow are they bright. I wish I had got these heard ago. Worth every dollar.

3 Stars   Looks Spectacular! Longevity, not so much.
By on 4/29/2016
Needed some updated headlights, wanted better color, brightness. These totally hit the mark, great coverage and color. Product looked well built, install was somewhat of a pain having taken the front bumper off but no pain no gain. Anyway, now I'm 14 months into my 12 month warranty and in the same week one of the headlights went out and one of the fog lights went out as well. Spending this much a year on headlights is like spending $10/mo on headlights! Plus I have to remove the bumper once a year. Nah, I'm done.

5 Stars   Great buy.
By on 9/18/2015
After reviewing several other options for brighter headlights on my 2012 Mustang I opted to buy these LEDs. They are extremely bright although the brights don't make much difference at all you probably won't need them anyway. The cast a wide bright beam seems to go out as far as 200 feet and I can see clearly on the highway. Most HIDs and 813 don't have high low beam and as for these LEDs the high beam really doesn't work but like I say you won't need it I would recommend giving them a try

4 Stars   No instructions
By on 2/17/2016
The lights are awesome, install was fairly uneventful. There were absolutely no instruction. They would have been helpful regarding the re-clocking of the locking collar. If the lights are upside down the dont shine at all....just a foggy white light. Other than that, due to the brightness of the low beam, the high beam is kind of useless.

These lights for a straight-forward plug-and-play install. For those of you not wanting to spend a lot of money or time changing your stock headlight this is a fantastic upgrade. Much better and brighter than stock give the car a high and look. Definitely worth the money

By on 3/24/2016
Very easy to install and they look great, very bright and have a nice white light, but they flicker so I needed to buy a capacitor to make it stop flickering. Not as bright as hid's but still better then halogen bulbs.

5 Stars   Excellent fitment and bright
By on 3/6/2015
I bought these to install when I did my CS lower facia on my GT. Install was very easy and very plug and play. Only issue is you need to be careful with the lock ring for the headlight. The nipple is small and will break if tightened to hard, as mine did. Nothing a little glue could not fix. Headlights are very bright over OEM and does not blind on coming traffic like HID's do. I have attached a photo, LED on right and OEM on left.
Now if I can get the ones for the CS fog lights also to match....cmon Late Model

3 Stars   Half junk, half great light
By on 3/15/2015
The lights themselves seem great! Very bright and work well with my smoked headlight housing. The only down side is the bulbs come loose from the locking tab way too easy. Hopefully some glue will fix it. Think I'll hold off before I get a set for my F150 to see how it holds up and that it doesn't fall out.
