Agree with others, watch the video and remove the bumper. Much easier and the bumper removal saves time and pain. The wiring can be hinky?? My driver side just as instructed works fine, the passenger side.. ...

Hey what’s up everyone Justin with here checking out these smoked halo headlights for all 05-09 Mustangs. These headlights are a great way to freshen up the front end of your S197 Mustang while maintaining a stealthy appearance on the road. They’re also equipped with that always cool halo feature, which is sure to turn heads both day and night. The kit features a dark housing with a smoked out lens for an aggressive appearance which flows extremely well with the black accents and grille on the front of these cars. Now as a nice little bonus the headlights do come with a dual element H13 bulb, eliminating the need to purchase anything else. Installation should take you about 2 hours from start to finish; now there is a small amount of wiring necessary to get everything to function properly, so if you should need any help or assistance whatsoever, you can always reference the install video located on this page. Now a lot of you in the customer reviews section have mentioned that removing the front bumper completely makes installing the headlights much easier, you might want to give that a shot. If you want to invest in a set of smoked headlights and you’re a big fan of the halo styling, then you might want to check out a set of these smoked headlights for your 05-09 Mustang.

when is the halo lit on these??? with parking lights? When headlights are on? When the car is started?


  • It depends on how you wire them. Most people like myself splice into the parking lights, so when you turn the parking lights on, only the halos come on, then they stay on if you turn the lights on.

Is it possible to replace to bulbs in the halos? Im hoping on gettin brighter bulbs in the future (maybe 6k), is that possible?


  • The main headlight bulb, yes. That is too easy to replace (same as the OEM headlights, just twist in.) I actually ordered brighter bulbs at the same time and put them in when I got it: The halo rings themselves are small florescents, and can't be removed or replaced. Hope this helps!

Will this work with 2007 GT500?


  • No unfortunately. These headlights are not compatible with the GT500 model due to the changes in the bumper and grille!

    Smoked CCFL Halo Headlights sent me the headlights very quickly. Took off the front bumper, pulled out the old and put in the new wired the Halos up, and made sure everything worked properly and put the front bumper back on. Later that day when the sun went down, I went to aim the headlights. As I was turning the screw I watched 10 feet away from the wall the lights go up, and heard a thunk and the light was aiming down, tried to aim it up and it would not go up anymore. AM sent told me it was not common, however it has happened in the past and they sent me a new pair while I kept these in just had to use my Hi Beams everywhere. Once I received the new lights, I switched them out and was much more delicate and slow in the process of aiming these. They did the same thing... However after playing around with it I managed to put whatever it was that was falling out of place back and now I just have them aimed to their max height, and that works absolutely fine. As far as how much I like them, the Clean Smoked look is so much better than the previous tinted headlights, just looks so much nicer or cleaner like they have not been modified. The Halo I have to say I am very impressed with, as I did not believe it would be as bright as it is, and absolutely love it. Even when I turn on my headlights on during the night, the halos are extremely and perfectly visible. I think one reason why is because there is actually a little piece that hangs down covering the tip of the actual headlight bulb (does NOT decrease visibility at all) but the Halo is absolutely beautiful, and really gives you that serious modified showy look wherever you go. They are visible in the daytime however not on a sunny day. The look I underestimated and didn't expect to look so good, the headlights themselves if you buy just make sure to take maximum caution when aiming, it is easy to aim them just, make sure to be very slow and don't over due it. Overall am Happy with the purchase and customer service.

    Nice But...

    Agree with others, watch the video and remove the bumper. Much easier and the bumper removal saves time and pain. The wiring can be hinky?? My driver side just as instructed works fine, the passenger side.. the ground had to be placed just so and then firmly secured to work correctly. Install issues aside, they look great, just niggling pita install issues.

    BULB REVIEW: Want smoked with halos? Get HID's as well.

    Alright the great thing about this product is that it simply looks amazing. The pictures don't do them any justice. If you want a smoked appearance and don't want the projectors or anything that messes with the appearance of the stang's stock headlights then you should not hesitate to get these. They are a good fit with no problems during install. The one bad thing about these headlights is that they shipped without the "included" wire quick splices. Not a problem if you have some anyway, but none came with mine. It's the first time I didn't get a full kit from AM, and it might not have been their fault since these lights were pretty heavily packaged. Now on to the bulbs: I wish someone would have reviewed the bulbs before I bought these headlights, so I am passing this favor forward. I have tested these headlamps with the tint they come with on 3 sets of bulbs: Stock 2005 headlamps, stock replacement included in the kit for no charge, and the RAXION H13 white upgrade bulbs for an additional $30. bucks. First off the 2 sets of stock type bulbs showed noticeable dimming through the tint and the color of both were yellow standard so it didn't look great either. The RAXION H13 had a much better appearance but showed only a slight improvement on the 2 sets of stock type bulbs. With that said I have cars coming up behind me and I can clearly see the shadow of my car in front of me in MY headlight area. The simple solution to see as well and better than stock bulbs on non-tinted headlights is to get the HID kit American Muscle sales. I will be getting that soon myself. It's very simple, these headlamps are not as bright as stock lamps even with the upgraded bulbs on standard beams. (can't ride on high beams all the time) So if you do any kind of night driving it would be worth the money to get an HID kit, and while you need to remove the bumper to put these lights in. might as well put HID's in too. PS: The install video isn't bad, but you might have to remove 2 push plastic top anchor pins in the fender well. They don't have them on newer (07-09 I think) but my 05 took me an extra 45mins to deal with the little buggers...... Install time 3 hours including minutes of fighting with fender well push pins. Bumper removal wasn't bad. The entire install can be done in just under 2 hours.

    Look awesome but...

    I bought them, installed them myself, and they look awesome! You almost have to get HID's because the yellowish light of factory bulb looks terrible compared to the hard white light of the halo. Now for the but... They don't show up at all during the day. Not a big deal. What is a big deal is after a year and a half water started getting into the headlight. I didn't take care of right away and now one of the halo's doesn't work any more. I will be buying another set of lights and I will be doing additional sealing with silicon rtv this time.

    These are sic

    I bought these back in July 2009, I was turning heads, people staring at them at the red light. They are getting more popular though. I see other aftermarket designs with smaller halos. I wanted the stock look though. Easy install. Take the front bumper off, wheel well shields off, then wire the halos into the parking lights. I used a wire tester found the positive and negative on 12v and was good to go. Def. a great deal and changes the whole look of your car.

    Amazing Lights!

    Took me and my dad about 3 hours to install these guys. The lights did not come with any instructions at all and the instructions on AM's website were not very helpful. Installation thankfully is pretty straight forward. It is waaaayyy easier to take the front fascia off. You just have to find out which wire powers the parking lights and tap into that one with the red wire from the lights. Then black goes with black. Overall, installation was not too difficult and the product is exactly what I wanted! Doesn't dim your actual headlights too much either! I definitely recommend this product to anyone trying to update their ride's look!

    bad install video

    absolutely luv the look. with smoked fog light covers it looks bad. BUT, the install instructions are not very good. First, i googled other videos after spending an hour trying to get old lights out. it is MUCH faster to just take bumper off. also the instructions on web site was not clear on the wiring of halo. had to spend another $26 on hanes book to figure our wiring harness for turn signals. lights themselves came with NO instructions.

    Had these lights proffesionaly installed. They look amazing when on. Change the whole look of the front of the car and give the car a mean look. People have said it looks like eyes. Even during the day time the halo lights look good. Make sure you buy different bulbs than the bulbs in the stock headlights. You will need brighter bulbs in order to see the road well through these headlights lenses.
