    I need new headlight bulbs for my 2000 v6 Mustang. It's my DD and I am asking in this forum because I know Id get more answers right away. Just wondering what is the headlight bulb number and are there any good aftermarket ones I should buy instead of factory one. maybe with a tint of blue/white? Do they really work well? Thank you for your time.

    I run Silverstar headlights and fog lights in my cobra and I also ran them in my old GT with absolutely no problem. I highly recommend them.

    Please do not get Sylvania anything even the superstars. Luminics is far superior and priced much better. I have the Luminics true blue bulbs and they give me a HID look. They are not blue blue just HID looking. I previously had Sylvania Silvertars and ripped them out without thinking twice. They also make pure white and titanium white but I've had the Pure white and True Blue is the way to go.

    Here they are in the cheapest prices

    Any bulb labeled 9007 will work. The difference between a cheap brand and a more expensive one is how long they last. I've used the Sylvania Silverstars on more than one car, and I've not had them burn out on me or get dim. And honestly, the price difference usually means you spend more over time on cheap brands because they don't last as long and get noticeably dimmer faster. But when they are new, there's not much difference between brands.

    All bulbs get dimmer over time. So no matter what you buy, they will seem brighter than what you had.

    That is true over time any bulb will lose intensity. They should be replaced every 2-3 years or so.
