Nice Looking lights. Be prepared do spend additional money on connectors, electric tape and wire and recommended RTV clear silicone. Happy with the look. :)

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.. ...

Review & Install Video

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.

Will HID's work with these? Can I safely use an HID Kit in these headlight housing without damaging them?


  • An aftermarket HID kit that clips in using the same design as the included halogen bulbs will work; however, factory HIDs will not be compatible with these headlights, as they have a different style housing and clip style.

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!

Is there any way to not get these with smoke lenses? I really like the prices and quality AM gives, and I would like to keep my purchases going with them, but i would prefer to not have the lenses smoked, or with the chrome housings. Is there any way to get these lenses less smoked or not at all? is there anything I can do to lessen the severity of the smoked lenses? And I would be using 6000K h13 bulbs


  • Unfortunately, we only carry these CCFL Halo Headlights in this smoked version and the chrome version. There isn't a clear lens with a black housing option available. Sorry about that!

    Excellent! As long as you don't need to see anything.

    Title explains it all, as well as other reviews. Excellent show piece item. But when it comes down to seeing anything, or even using these headlights outside of broad day light. Look somewhere else. The beam only covers about 2.5-3 feet from your car. At best. On high beams, it'll cover maybe 5-8 feet. At best.

    Nice Lights, but...

    These smoked halos look great! Fitment was spot on, install in about an hour or so... but, the tint on the headlight housing is dark.. so regular bulbs won't shine as bright... wi think out hid or led lights visibility is very poor.. even with high beams. Also the adjustment screws are weak and will break easily, lastly.. when adjusting the lights...the only aim up so far before piping down to the lowest position and not comming back up.

    Looks AMAZING but has ISSUES

    The halos look incredible day or night and have heads turning everywhere I go. They were a bit tricky to install with having tho buy the quick splice connectors seperately and then the halos didn't want to light but this was due to my own wiring inexperience. Took me about 6 hours total but I also install halo fog lamps and smoked turn signals. Biggest issue I'm currently having with these headlights is that, like many other reviews say, the height adjustment is faulty on both lights. I've been reading some advice on how to fix this myself without comprimising the light or housing but if that fails I will try a replacement. Biggest pain is going to be the removing and rewiring multiple times to remove old set, reinstall stock, wait for new lights to arrive, then reinstall new lights. AM has been very helpful and has some of the best customer service I've seen but the pushing of parts with known problems and defects is looking to be a black mark on the overall company quality. Other problem is very bad light output with the smoked lenses. (Which was expected with a smoked headlight) I've tried several different bulbs but all about the same. I will be looking into HID lighting soon and hope it helps without the "light scattering" I've heard about on reflection style light. All in all this light does look VERY SEXY but it doesn't function very well. In other words its a great light for looks but not for works. Still love American Muscle though. You guys are awsome. :-)

    Look great....function terrible

    I received these as a Christmas gift, now unfortunately it's way past the return period since they sat in their boxes until the weather was nice enough here in Indiana to install them. Install wasn't soo bad, just removed bumper cover as most people have stated and used butt-connectors to wire the halos to the parking lights. Now once they were in they looked amazing, halos could be seen in bright light but once the sun goes down that's where it all ends. The high and low beams are backwards and like others have said, you cannot adjust these lights to make them safe enough to use at night. I turned the screw as far as it would go and the adjustment popped apart and it won't adjust anymore at all. I'm going to have to take the bumper cover back off to snap it back together, however since i'm taking it apart once again I'm just going to put the stock headlights back in so I can actually feel safe driving at night. I can't comment on the light bulbs that they came with because I had already upgraded to HID's from ddm tuning. Even with the HID's these lights still only shined about 10 feet in front of the car at their brightest point.

    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.

    Great looks, poor performance, poor adjustment...

    I really liked the looks of these lights as they highly resemble the factory lamps, but have the halo's. I am not a fan at all of projector lighting as I think the car has to be physically designed to look right with projectors and 05-09's, IMHO, just don't looks right with them. So I got them installed and that was pretty easy, even without instructions. I already have a 6000k, 55w H13 HID kit for Morimoto in my 06 GT, so I installed those and waited till night time. When I finally fired them up, initially, they looked great. But, I was quickly disappointed with the amount of light they let out. I know they are smoked, but probably a bit too much. Even with my HID's, I would have a hard time seeing at night if it wasn't for my HID 5000k, 35w Morimoto fogs. I shut those off while driving and have only headlights and visibility is terrible. To make things worse, the adjustments only let you aim them so high, when compared to the factory assemblies. I think I am going to ask AM to refund my purchase and go with the unpainted retro headlights instead.

    Defective aiming mechanism

    Installed and look great. However, I can't aim these lights. When you start turning the aiming screw and start to watch the beam go up (about 10 feet off a wall) you see it rise to a point, then it you hear a pop and it no longer rises. The screw is not even half way at capacity. I took the lights out and inspected. Its a defect in the design. The lights just don't aim high enough. I ended up shimming the bottom of the mounting bracket to get the lights to an acceptable level, but they still are not aimed high enough and shimming the brackets affects the overall look of the lights. Not a good solution. Can't recommend these lights.
