i do now...thanks! It's my understanding that Ford has a patent on the headlamp design...i'm not too sure why but they seem to work better than average at night. I also know you can't find the H13 bulbs at walmart

That's pretty cool. VW also does something like that with a VW cap that goes over the bulb.

I was trying to see what kind of bulb was in there because I wanted to go to HID.

I hadn't noticed it until it was pointed out. When I first looked at the headlights, there was a reflection on the lettering that made it look like there were a bunch of pinholes through the metal cap that surrounded the bulb. Now I see it was just a bad reflection from the sun and my not looking closely enough to see the branding.

hmmmmmmm

09 Vista....,

Thanks for pointing that out.
I had to go out to the garage right away to check.
Yeah, I'm curious also - how did you find it?
Great pics by the way - good close ups.

I am not real sure I like or not (???)
