    Review & Installation Video

    Dave with and with me today I have Raxiom’s retro style headlights for the 05-09 Mustang GT or V6. The unmistakable retro styling of these lights from Raxiom were taken from the late 60’s early 70’s Mustang, and they’re going to fit perfect on your 05-09 Mustang GT or V6. These pre-painted housings come all ready out of the box with the premium H13 bulbs installed, and these unique housings feature a vent right next to the lens, and a rounded plastic lens itself that DOT approve. Guaranteed to fit, hassle free. Painted in house at AmericanMuscle with the same high quality paint as OEM, you can guarantee yourself these Raxiom lights are going to look great right out of the packaging. And with Raxiom’s 2 year warranty, you can rest assured your new retro style headlights are going to perform great for years to come as well. It’s no exaggeration to say that these lights will totally transform the front of your car, just like it did for our 06 GT behind me. The best part about installing these Raxiom lights, no drilling and no wiring required. You pop off the front bumper like you would for any headlight install, remove the factory housings, and put the Raxioms right back in the same location, even using the same hardware. Plug your factory wiring harness into the H13 bulb already in the housing, and you’re good to go. You can even reach the headlight adjuster knob once it’s installed with no special tools. Total install time, give yourself about an hour. The Raxiom retro style pre painted headlight for the 05-09 Mustang GT and V6 is one of the most unique and classic styled headlights on the market today, and is available at

    Why does this headlight unit not allow HID's to be installed? In the description of the product and what comes with it, it states what kind of light bulbs it can use and it says that it can not be used with HID's and I was just curious why it couldn't use them.


    • The enclosure is too small to dissipate heat from any HIDs that have an external power supply.

    Is there a way to adjust these lights without completely removing the bumper assembly? As another person mentioned, out of the box these things are practically pointed at the sky, which is dangerous for yourself and other drivers. There are what appear to be adjustment points on top of the lights when installed, but they are blocked by solid metal with no way to access any screws.


    • The Raxiom Retro Style Headlights can be adjusted from the rear of the housing. it is a very fine adjustment so you may be turning for longer than expected. There is no way to adjust them while on the bumper.

    The set I purchased look great but the bulbs shoot the beams upward and not on the road. Its difficult to drive at night this way. how do I adjust them without breaking the bulbs? thank you


    • The Raxiom Retro Style Headlights should have a small adjuster wheel on the back of the headlamp assembly to adjust vertical aim of the headlamps. turning this will move the beam up/down.

    Do I have to use the Raxiom bulbs with these lights? My high beams have burnt out and need to replace the bulb. Will a stock bulb work? or do I need to continue to just use these Raxiom bulbs with this set of headlights?


    • Raxiom bulbs do not need to be used with these headlights, any headlight bulb that is H13 will work with these headlights.

      Used These to Retro Out My Windveil Blue V6!

      Hi everybody. Just wanted to throw my two cents in about the Raxiom Retro Style Headlights so people can make an informed decision on these. I'll be going into a fair amount of detail on all that is included and the ordering/shipping process. American Muscle was great as usual. Since I'm on the East Coast close by their warehouses, I got the headlights within two days. When the packages arrived, they were very nicely packaged. You get a good sized box containing the headlights. Additionally there is an install sheet from Raxiom on how to install these beauties! Each individual headlight has its own separate box. Those two boxes fit snugly inside the larger box so there is absolutely no shifting of boxes during transit. The smaller boxes them selves each protected the headlights well with bubble wrap on the tops and bottoms in addition to Styrofoam like wrapping around each individual headlight. A+ for packaging! As for the headlights themselves, they are very well done. The paint match is spot on. For those that may have read that there were paint quality issues early on, American Muscle's current batch is definitely improved over what MAY have happened. I don't have any lack of paint coverage or defects in it on the housing for either headlight, even in the vents on the side. The bulb housing is DOT approved so it is good in that regard; no pre-oxidation also is a huge plus. My only gripe about the headlights is that some sealant that was used around the painted housing and bulb lens has two air bubbles per headlight. Nothing I'd return them over though since it's barely noticeable but thought I'd point that out. The install itself was straightforward. Hard cut the wheels over to a given side, remove all bolts and fasteners necessary, disconnect the turn signal lights, pop off the bumper, radiator shield, etc and you're good to go. It's just a simple swap from there, couldn't go any easier. With the right Phillips head screwdriver, correct sized socket wrench and sockets (I believe it to be 7mm or 10mm, don't remember hehe...) and you're good there. Replace everything and you're done. It is very simple to do even for somebody new to cars like me; it can be done within two hours easy. After installing them I aligned the headlights, which was simple enough. The included Raxiom H13 bulbs are double filament just like OEM and have about the same kelvin rating and lumen output as well. Mine looked much brighter than stock. This may be more or less due to the oxidation of the old headlight lenses and the age of the bulbs, however. These headlights look great installed! Check out the pics in the Customer Pics section. They really added to the retro theme that I'm going for with my P3 S197. I've only had them installed for a few days and I'm already getting compliments on the forum that I belong to. These Raxiom Retro Headlights will definitely set apart your 'Stang from the rest, even if you're not going for a retro look necessarily! I highly recommend these! My one friend is already going to get a set once he gets the money together! To Summarize: * A.M is great as always! * Product was protected well during shipping * Headlights were in great shape upon arrival and look great installed * Install process is easy and straightforward * Compliments everywhere!

      Looks good but subtle on black

      The lights arrived packaged well and I couldn't wait to get them installed. It took longer than I expected since you have to jack the car and remove the front tires. Also, word of advice, go by Ford and order the plastic retainer clips for the fender well BEFORE starting this project. You will break a few when removing as most of mine were old and brittle. Ford will likely have to order them since they do not keep them in stock. Fit and finished were very good but the visual difference for a lack car was not striking. I was a little depressed that there wasn't more contrast for the $400 bucks I shelled out. It is what it is I guess. It still looks good and is one of those things that people will notice but not at first.

      Retro Lights

      Was a little nervous taking off the front facia, but whole time spent was around two hours with hand tools and taking my time. Scares me how little is in the front of our cars. Fit was great, paint was top notch, the look is really cool. I was always worried about the plastic on the originals getting "bugged up" and scratched. No worries now. Lights work great. Just another toy to make the older look come out!

      60's Styling

      Im a huge fan of S197 body style and these headlights are the way to go. I added these to my Shelby GT and wow, these lights are beautiful. You must remove front bumper in order to install, this was my first time removing front bumper and it really isn't that bad after watching a few how- to vids. I gotta say I feel proud when I stare at those sexy lights knowing I was able to install these myself. Color was dead on. I upgraded my H13 bulbs to more radiant bulb and for my added comfort I sealed lamp casing with clear silicone . Adjusting new headlights is very simple with Philips screwdriver takes few seconds. They cost 400$ simply because theyre worth it!

      Painted Retro Headlights

      The install was rather easy and the Dark Candy Apple Red paint was right on. I added a billet grill and chin spoiler at the same time. The only thing was the grill showed some of the red paint so I purchased some black vinyl and took a little extra time to get project completed.

      That retro look

      So you want that retro look you say, well you NEED these to achieve that dream. The colour match is spot on, and they couldn't fit any better. I'm in love with these headlights, very easy to install took just under an hour, the reason for that is there are a few things you have to take off. Don't worry first timers they come with instructions that make sense, easy to follow. I highly recommend these lights even if your not going for the retro look.

      While these look great, I have to echo what others have said. Functionality is bad. After installing them in about an hour, I did a test drive at night. Did not light up the street at all. It did light up the tree line and when on the highway, it lit up the overhead signs.

      Great look, not so great illumination

      Goods: absolutely changed (for the better) the front end look of 2007 Windveil Blue 'vert. Love the looks. Others: As noted in another review, there is a problem on lo and hi beam. Not sure if it is in the reflector it self or how it is mounted, but road illumination is very dim out to a good 50 ft. Point it at a hill or building on level ground and it masterfully lights both up. Get in a situation like dusk/dawn, any know nod of on coming or overhead glare and it gets very difficult to identify lanes, etc. Shift to brights and go get the fill in you need, but lose the distance, and of course, everyone flashes you. Only fix I've found to work is run with the fogs on as that provides the necessary near illumination - while annoying on coming traffic. I'm currently using the Raxion bulbs supplied with the kit and would be interested in (a) Racion's take and (b) any other experiences out there.

      Lighting aspect substandard

      I bought these lights early in the year. The installation took me about 2 hours to complete and the instructions included as well as the online instructions made it easy to follow. they look good as a retro style type of light and I have had a few compliments at cruise nights. There is one major complaint and that is the light beams are terrible. The low beams have a spread that does not light up the road far enough down the road and the beams seem uneven. turn the brights on and there is actually less light on the road. this is not a bulb problem as both are lit up just fine. This is more of a problem now that the days are getting shorter with darkness in the morning going to work. Raxiom, you need to review the reflector set up!

      67 Style on my 05 gotta love it.

      The only mustangs I've ever owned were and still are 1967 fastbacks and I rarely drive these except at car shows or on Sundays. So I purchased this 05 6v to be a daily driver when I'm not in my customized 1997 F150 stepside. Thanks to AM and their aftermarket parts my 05 is starting to look more and more like my candy apple red fastback. and these lights really set the stage for the looks. Color match is dead on and installation a breeze. I'll be posting photos of the before and after come spring time.

      Easy Install

      Although the install seems to be very involved for a headlight installation, it is really simple. Follow the instructions and there will be no problem. I would add though, to mark the aim of your current headlights before you remove them. This will make aiming the new lights a lot easier. Total time for my install was about 4 hours and that was by myself and included cleaning all the area's that I accessed by removing the wheels, wheel wells and front bumper cover.

      Awesome retro style, and totally complete the look of my '09 GT. However, I do feel that these lights could be priced along with the other aftermarket headlights at $250. With that said, the fit, color, look, and performance are all perfect. Raxiom and AM, you guys did it yet again!!! Before purchasing, make sure you know how to get your front end will save valuable time......and a socket extension will save you as well. Enjoy these amazing lights, as they will add style and performance to your ride.

      These lights are absolutely awesome, I love them! But to install them perfectly is a two-person job. The front bumper and grill must come off and is easier if hoisted. Still, a shop can do it easily. The paint was perfect and they make the car look completely different. Thumbs up!
