Hey, Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com, here with my review of Raxiom's 2010 Style Black Headlights for 2005 to 2009 GT and V6 Mustangs. These headlights are going to be for the older S197 owners that are looking to bring some of the 2010 headlight style, but with a little bit more punch to their mustang. So these headlights have a similar look to the 2010 factory headlights but there are a few things that are going to make them different than both the factory lights and other after-market options out there. These are projector-style lights that have clear lenses with a black housing and an LED halo. And I think that the halo is what really works to set these lights apart. Another nice thing here is that these headlights come with a new high and low beam bulb, the quick splice connectors that you'll need for the install.The headlights are going to cost between $200 and $300, and I like that these headlights are subtle but obviously different. When it comes to the install, you can expect to spend about two hours, and I am going to call this two out of three wrenches on the scale because you are looking at pulling off your front fascia and wiring in the new headlights. You won't need anything out of the ordinary for the install, but I'd just make sure you have some heat shrink. And keep in mind, you might have to aim these after the install if you want the best view at night. Wrapping this up, I think Raxiom's 2010 Black Style Headlights are a good option for '05 to '09 owners that like the look of the 2010 headlight, but also like the idea of the LED halo just to set things off, and get what I think is a different look with the black housing. You can check these out more online for yourself, and for all things Mustang, keep it right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

I received these as a Christmas gift, I didn’t get a chance to install them for a few weeks. They looked fine out of the package, very nice and seemed like they were very well put together. Installation was not difficult at all. Once I had them installed I noticed the right side headlight did not project the same as the left side. Nothing was damaged during install which tells me they’re defective. I reached out to American muscle but because it was past their warranty coverage they did not offer any help even though the product was defective, my wife did not buy the extended warranty. I reached out to raxiom and they told me to contact American muscle, they obviously don’t want to help and their response time is horrible! Raxiom does not have a number to call customer service, all you can do is email them. The box the headlights came in says they have a 2 year warranty which is obvious bs!!! I have the raxiom gen 5 taillights which work fine, it’s unfortunate neither company is willing to help when the product is defective. I would not recommend buying raxiom products due to their horrible customer service and i would advise anyone buying from American muscle to check the product as soon as you get it or buy the extended warranty since customer satisfaction is not a priority to them, they already got our money for the product and that’s what they care about.Helpful (0)

Look great but super dim!
Lights are beautiful and add a great look to the car but they're very dim at night. Much worse than the stock lights even after I upgraded from the cheap Chinese bulbs that they came with to Sylvania SilverStar bulbs . No horizontal adjustment either so they're not perfectly aligned and there's nothing I can do about it. If you do a lot of night driving I'd consider looking elsewhere.Helpful (0)

Look amazing and really change how the front end looks. They also seem to have more range left and right than OEM. Be aware that adjusting them too high will cause the plastic tab holding the screw to pop out and it’s a pain to get back in. Solid design but would highly recommend soldering the wires together instead of using the scotchloks/parasite connectors includedHelpful (0)

Great aggressive look
These headlights weren’t to hard to install other than taking the whole front bumper off and figuring out the wiring. Give a great mean look to the car compared to stock. Got be at the top of headlight mods you could get for a 05-09!Helpful (0)

Gives a clean aggressive look to the car, the headlights come with amber colored g18 bulbs in the lights but I wanted the white look so I took them out and bought white ones for them. Great product!Helpful (2)

Completely changed the front of my car.
Headlights are very well made and haven't had any issues with anything except fogging a little when it rains. Super easy to install and even I was able to wire in the halos and I don't know anything about wiring. Took me 2 hours with video.Helpful (0)

Really changes the look of the front of your stang. Always get compliments on how the headlights lookHelpful (0)
Do these have vertical and horizontal adjustment screws? If not do any of the headlights available on your sight have them, if so which ones?
The Raxiom 2010 Style Black Headlights, and all of the headlights we carry have a vertical adjustment, but not a horizontal.
Ok, so I know for a fact H9 35w HID's fit in these headlights. Has anybody tried 55w HID's? They fit ofcourse, but how is the visibility? is the difference noticeable, etc? And have you had problems with the housing?
HID bulbs will fit these headlights yes. However this housing is not meant to support the heat of the HIDs and the HIDs may case the housing to melt or peel.
I'm wondering if anyone has done a LED replacement on these Headlights? I know PIAA makes an H9 LED conversion kit but I'm concerned about fitment.
You should not have any issues using an LED bulb as long as they are an H9. This will ensure that they fit properly.
If your light switch doesn’t have daytime running lights will these work? Or do you need a new switch ?
Does the amber light work as a turn signal ?
The bulb should be a 3157 and we have a switchback bulb for this application. https://www.americanmuscle.com/raxiom-switchback-turn-signal-0512.html
The halos on these headlights would match the look of the halos on the raxiom fog lights.
We would suggest checking the bulb. If that is not the issue, please contact our customer service team for assistance.
The accent light accepts a 3151 style bulb.
Unfortunately, an H13 bulb will not fit these lights. These light accept an H9 bulb for the high/low beam replacements.
You are able to change out the amber light in these headlights. These headlights will use the same bulb size as the turn signals which is 3151.
The Halo lights in these headlights will be LED but the bulbs we include for the high and low beams would be halogen bulbs with a color temperature of 4000k.
We have not tested the Raxiom 2010 Style Black Headlights with H11 Bulbs.
The Raxiom 2010 Style Black Headlights will plug into your stock headlight plug, and a harness internal to the headlamp runs to and plugs into the H9 Bulb.
At this time we do not have a comprehensive list of LED bulbs that fit the Raxiom 2010 Style Black Headlights. Those with smaller heat sinks and no fan will typically work.
