I am going to replace the headlights on my wife’s ‘96 GT for the third time. I polish them once and replace them when they fog over the second time. I’m wondering if the clear lens Cobra version is a direct replacement for the “ribbed/fluted” stock GT units. I have no illusion that they will fare any better... but the clear ones look better. TIA...

on my 99 Mustang, I went one notch up with the Sylvania bulb, which was brighter than the originals, but still with a good lifespan - very pleased with lighting, I clean the lens about once per year with the Sylvania headlight kit - as you get good at doing it, it lasts at least a year before yellowing again - I see no reason to replace the headlights -
