Are these bulbs legal for road use? I've done some reading where HIDs are not...
Do you have any pictures/videos comparing these LEDs to standard headlights?
Will these work in a stock style headlight assembly?
Have you received any feedback about them?
Installation instructions- plug and play?

Hi David. These are considered an aftermarket replacement that wasn't factory equipped on these cars, so that technically makes them not DOT legal. As far as being illegal or passing inspection, you will need to check with your county inspections as that varies from state to state. Unlike with retrofit HID kits, as long as your lights alignment is properly adjusted, these will not blind oncoming cars like HID kits do. We are currently working on video showing the before and after with these over standard Halogen bulbs, so keep an eye out as that will be available soon. I personally run LED headlight and fog light bulbs in my 05 Roush, and they work well. Having tried HID kits in the past, and these are a welcomed alternative that runs much cooler and doesn't have the firing issues most aftermarket HID kits have. As far as fitment, on 94-98, they should fit with no issue at all. Depending on what brand headlight is used on 99-04, in some cases the bulb retainer ring on the headlight might have to be trimmed down.

The last time I got HID's for my 96 Cobra, the light was spread all over and wasn't where the light should be. The HID's also did'nt fit in the fog light assembly.(the bulb was too long) As mentioned already...the striking issue was nuts. Hit a small bump and the lights flicker, they were unreliable. Now that I have a 94 GT, I think I'll wait for LM to do a "how to" or video review of the LED's before I dump $100+ getting the combo kit. To as much help as I can give, I have LED headlight on my 2014 Harley and I love it! As long as the reflectors are built right on the headlight assembly, the light is directed right where you need it and does'nt blind others. I'm looking forward to LM's video and review!

There are a bunch of inferior HID kits on the market. I too have attempted use of them and eventually gave up after several sets for the same reasons your mentioning. I currently have these LED's in my 05 Roush in its required fitments for headlights and fog lights, and after almost 7 months of daily use each morning, they have not acted up once. They run much cooler, and fire up every time. I don't upset oncoming traffic like I did with universal HID kits either. Keep an eye out, and we'll get our video up soon.

The headlight itself does not have to be modified. It's the black ring that holds the bulb in place that often times has to be trimmed down. There have been several different thicknesses used over the years. If yours look similar to the link below, you should not have to cut them. If yours are thicker, taking a hack saw and cutting down the excess will take care of the fitment issues.
