These headlight look great, change the whole look of the car with the black housing. The only down fall about them though would be that they are not bright at all, I have to make sure to drive next to ... someone to use their lights. Also the halo is not that bright either. I was told it would be best to change the lights out for H7 and H1, but for the price of these lights you shouldn't have to pay another 80$ for lights.
If you bought these lights make sure you adjust them after your done. Turn the knob left to bring them up and right to bring them down. The lights are already down when you get them so when you go to turn ... them on the visibilty sucks. Overall pretty easy install... just sucked having to take the bumper off.
Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and I’m checking out some modern lighting for your S197, thanks to Raxiom’s smoke projector headlights featuring the CCFL halo accents fitting all 05-09 Mustangs. These lights are the creation of industry leader Raxiom who continue to produce some very cool aftermarket parts for Mustangs, all backed by a full 2 year warranty. The main difference with these headlights versus your stock headlights is that they’re going to replace the old and dated reflector style housing with a more modern projector style beam, that’s going to give you a more focused beam of light which of course should improve your visibility. The second difference is obviously that dark smoked appearance thanks to the black housing with the lightly smoked lens. I for one really enjoy the look of a smoked headlight on these 05-09’s, it just changes the attitude of the entire car, and gives it a very evil type of appearance. In addition to those two things I just mentioned these headlights are also equipped with some other very cool and modern features, the first being these modern CCFL halo actions, that shine whenever the parking lights or headlights are on. Raxiom has also provided a small area of LED lighting that illuminates along with those halos, and makes for a very unique look whenever the headlights are in action. These headlights do come with H1 bulbs for your low beams and H7 bulbs for your high beams along with all the hardware and quick splice connectors needed for the install. Installing any set of headlights for these 05-09 cars will require you to remove the front bumper which is going to stretch the install time out slightly. But other than that it’s just a bit of light wiring and a few bolts, should only take you about 2 hours from start to finish. So if you’re a Mustang owner who prefers the more modern look of a projector style light along with the LED look and halo accents, all finished with a dark smoked housing, then you’ll definitely want to check out Raxiom’s smoked projector headlights exclusively at AmericanMuscle.com
Do they work with DRL in Canada? I live in Canada. My GT has DRL (Daytime running lights). Do these or any other headlights like these work with DRL using plug and play format wiring or will I have to do a little electrical work? Thanks
Is the lens clear? I just got a $150 ticket for tint on my headlights. They said there can be no tint at all so i was looking for some new ones. I want black ones like i have(with a clear lens) but all i see on AM is smoked. By smoked do y'all mean smoked lens or smoked housing. Because on the customer photos the lens's look clear but wanted to make sure. Thanks
Do the headlights light up when I unlock my car? I have a 07 Mustang GT/CS and still have the stock headlights in them. I bought these 2 years ago for my old mustag but took them out when I got rid of it. Anyways my question is WIll these light up when I unlock the vehicle like the stock ones do?

Look great, but . . .
These lights look great, and will definitely make your Mustang stand out in a crowd. But if you want better nighttime illumination, look elsewhere. The low beams are adequate at best, and the high beams are pretty much useless, even though I replaced the original bulbs with Sylvania Silverstars. The factory headlights illuminate much better than these, and I'm seriously thinking of switching back. Installation is the same for most Mustang headlights, you have to remove to the front bumper cover. That part wasn't so bad; the problem was accommodating the adjustment screws. I had to cut out a portion of the sheet metal behind each headlight housing so I would be able to access the screws and aim the lights once they were mounted. And as other reviewers mentioned, aiming the lights is very difficult. For some reason, the low beams have 2 adjustment screws each, requiring the use of a Phillips stubby. The high beams have 3 adjustment screws each, requiring the use of either a flathead stubby or an 8mm socket. There is no explanation as to which screw does what, and some screws turn smoothly while others are almost impossible to turn and/or don't seem to do anything when they do. The rubber boot protecting the opening in the back falls off easily and has to be checked regularly so that water doesn't seep inside. In conclusion, even though these lights are of low quality and cheaply made, if you want your 'Stang to look cool for show purposes, go ahead and buy them. If you want to see better at night, buy something else.

Sets you apart from all the rest.
I bought these for my mustang, now you have to remove the bumper the bumper cover and the wheel well protectors to get into all of this, the wiring diagram that is sent with these are practically useless so a little knowledge is pretty helpful. As you can see from the user pictures you can wire these things in different ways, hi beams on top or bottom whatever you prefer. Once you get these installed and working though, they stand out like you would not believe, running just the halos or using the full on, the inside LED\'s really brighten the road up and people are wondering what you are driving at night. Great lights, little tricky but good for the price. MAKE SURE YOU SEAL THESE LIGHTS, if there are any gaps which i am sure there will be, make sure these lights are completely seal them, Seal them and then seal them again to assure that you have no moisture in the inside.

These lights look awesome!!! These lights have given me the most unique look of all 500 mustangs running around town. However if you are going to be doing a lot of running outside of town (country roads or roads without a lot of light) it would be better to order the "chrome" lights instead of the smoked. My fog lights are equal to the actual lights. Over all I love the new lights

Installation was easy, although aiming took a little bit. The look of these lights are stunning both on and off. These really light up the road and definitely turn heads. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Got these headlights on cyber monday at 189.00 w/ a coupon... couldn't beat the price. Didn't want to screw around with this install myself and had them professionally installed at a local shop. Install was only 2 hours of labor totaling $150.00 w/tax. The boys at the shop called me when it was ready and said "yeah it's ready, (short pause) "it looks bad @ss"... they weren't lying, both on and off they look amazing and really bring out the beast in an already amazing car... I would recommend them to anyone with a mustang, actually, no I won't... I'd rather mine was more cool looking!

got these a while back on my 09 gt, great kit the lights they come with are pretty weak so get replacements or upgrade to an HID kit. They say no HIDs, this is not true, you just need one specifically for this kit that is sold elsewhere. I love these lights they they look great when you add HIDs. Highly recogmind.

Halo Projector Headlights
They definately look great, but I am still jealous of other drivers when I their headlights outshine mine. But the headlights do project well off into the distance. Installation was easy after I ditched the instructions that came with the headlights and googled a video on how to install the headlights.

These are more of a show car light, not a everyday driver.
GOOD: Installed these in my 07 GT, they look great on or off. Install was easy, studs broke off my fender to bumper cover brackets, so you may want to buy a set if you live where corrosion occurs since ford installed these unpainted I believe. Hook up was easy, Beam adjustment was easy as well. Marked my factory beams on the wall in a dark garage, matched up when done, simple. BAD: The light output on these is terrible. THE BULBS THAT COME IN THEM MUST BE REPLACED PRIOR TO INSTALL. BULB ACCESS IS ONLY DONE BY REMOVING THE FRONT FACIA AGAIN AND REMOVING THE LAMP HOUSINGS. I tried a set of high and a set of low beam silverstar bulbs and I am still not happy with the brightness at night.... I may try a set of 35w HIDs 6000k since that's what everyone on the forums seems to be doing so they don't crash at night with these things.
