Default So this week, I ordered...

...with much eye-rolling from the wifey:

Raxiom Retro Style Headlights

I thought about just having my stock headlight buckets painted and leaving the plastic off, but these look a lot cleaner. Has anyone else tried these out?

"You spent how much in headlights? Doesn't your car already have headlights?"

That's what my wife would say.

lol, funny, I'm not married. I do have a gf who has lived with me for several years. Might as well be married, but anyway.... she's the same way, only I always show her pictures on other cars before I order anything. She always likes what I show her and a few days later it shows up on the door..... I'll usually get a look, but she doesn't say anything. I just smile and start opening up the goodies. :-)

I had the entire suspension lying on the floor with 3800 miles on them, and my wife said "you took off new parts to install new parts?"...shakes her head and asks "whats wrong with you?"

My woman stated recently that "she gets it" now. She said she didn't at first, but now she understands. Even when car shopping last week, when we were considering getting a Jeep instead of another Mustang, she kept saying that she didn't want me to give up my Mustang for a car I wouldn't modify.

Not a fan of those lights. Stock looks better IMO.

Pretty much the same deal with me lol.

OP, I think they look good! Be sure to post pictures.

These look awesome on your car!

I wanted to order these when they first came out but, AM said they weren't compatible with HID's. Decided I was just gonna try to paint mine myself with some hi-temp paint.

Kevin,

Not sure if you ended up already purchasing these or not... I think they give a clean unique look to any S197. We had them on our 2007 GT and now I feel it looks weird without them! I'm sure they'll be back on in no time, but we're always test fitting something.

Anyways, you have my vote!

Shane

Sitting on my front porch waiting for me to go out and get them as we speak.

Thanks, Shane...

I have found that the evil death stare isn't quite as bad if I inflate the price when I bring it up. It plays out something like this - "Hey babe, I got these new headlights and they cost $600". <Evil Death Stare>. "Just joking, they were $350". <Rolls Eyes and leaves the room. I don't even mention until I buy it already, maybe that is part of the problem
