Nice Headlights!

Took advantage of Forte's anniversary sale and got me some pretty new headlights with halogen bulbs. Took 5 minutes to install, direct fit, uses the same FFR connector. I like it, I like it a lot.

Those look great! They remind me of the Cibie E-code headlights I had on an old BMW running 55/100w bulbs. They turned night into day. The headlights in the newer cars (at least the Fords I have) just plain suck. Those look like they give some lateral light, great for turning in parking lots and looking for Bambi on the shoulder! Let us know how they work. I might give Mike a call.

The glass lens looks like it has a flat face. Is that an illusion or is the face of the glass actually flat?

Not flat, same curve as normal. Give Mike a call. Even at the regular price of $75, these are nice.

Dwleo's headlights are more mobile when you remove them they are more satifying and not flat
