Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

These are the Raxiom DRL projector headlights in black, for 2005 to 2009 GT and V6 Mustangs. These headlights bring a different look to the older S197s with the tri-bar daytime running lights that are similar to those that you see on the S550 Mustang. These are projector headlights with LED daytime running light accents, and a black housing with a clear lens for a dark appearance, without ruining visibility. The install for these is easy. It's a one-out-of-three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and it'll take you about an hour to complete. The biggest differentiator between these and other projector style headlights, I would say, is the styling. Most obviously, you have the tri-bar daytime running lights here, and these are LED lights, and they totally change the looks of the headlight, which, looking back now, is more straightforward and simple than you see nowadays. These bring more of that modern style to the headlights. These have a black housing, too, which gives the headlight a darker look, but because only the housing is black and the lenses are clear, it's not gonna take away any of the brightness of the lights. You go with a smoked or tinted lens, that's when you start to impact visibility, but going with a black housing gives you a similar look without compromising brightness or visibility. Raxiom does offer these same headlights but with a chrome housing instead of a black housing. Those headlights have a different overall look to them. So, you can always check those out if you aren't into the black housing. Another nice feature here is that these are a direct plug-and-play replacement, even though they are projectors with that accent lighting, so these were designed to fit in the GT and the V6 that have standard halogen bulbs. The DRL accent lighting taps into the stock running lights using connectors that are supplied for you. The lights are also sealed to keep out any moisture, and there's a two-year full manufacturer's warranty, too, in case anything were to happen. As far as price, these headlights do have that LED accent lighting and they are projector-style headlights, so I expected them to be a little bit more expensive than some of the other plain options out there. You can expect to pay close to but under the $400 mark for these. There are a handful of headlight options for the '05 to '09, though, so if these are a little bit too pricey for you, you can always check out some of the other options. When it comes to the install, this is an easy install, so one-out-of-three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and plan on spending an hour or two getting these on the car. You'll just need some basic hand tools to get the job done, and you will need a jack and jack stands because you will be pulling the front bumper for the install. Once you have the car in the air, you'll remove the screws and the retainers in the inner fender well on each side. Once that's done, you'll be able to reach the two bolts that are holding the bumper to the fender. You might wanna remove the parking light bulb while you're here. Next, you'll remove the plastic rad cover and remove the 10-millimeter bolts holding the bumper to the rad support. Once the bumper is ready to remove, pull the sides to unclip it, and unclip the fog lights as you pull the bumper away. After that, you'll wire in the new headlights, and you'll be wiring them into the smaller two-wire parking light bulb harness. Use the connectors that are provided for you to wire them into place. Plug in the new main headlight harness from the car to the connector on the new headlights. I would test the lights at this point to make sure they're working properly. If they are, you can reinstall your front bumper, and you're all done. That's gonna wrap things up for the Raxiom DRL projector headlights in black for the 2005 to 2009 GT and V6 Mustang, but you can always check them out more online, right here at americanmuscle.com.

Ask a Question

Do the DRL part of the headlight turn on when the engine is turned on, or after turning on the parking lights? If not, is there a way to wire them so the parking lights don't have to be on?

JordanR

  • The Raxiom DRL Projector Headlight is designed to have the DRL's on with the parking lights, however with some creative wiring these could be made to work with the key on only and no use of the parking lights to activate the DRL's. This would require wiring a standard ISO relay to power the DRL's in the following manner: Pin 85 to Ground. Pin 86 To 12v Acc (Key on only) power source. Pin 30 from fused 12V Source. Pin 87 to lamps. This will allow the DRL's to activate any time the key is turned on.

I understand they come installed with H7 bulbs. How do they plug into my factory plug with H13 plug since they are different plugs? Mine is 2006 gt with standard factory H13 halogen bulbs.

DavidB

  • The Raxiom DRL Projector Headlight utilizes an h7 bulb, which connects internally to a harness which exits with the correct connector to hook up to your vehicle's harness for the H13.

Do these have a sharp cut off line in the beam pattern like true projectors such as the ones by Morimoto that people often use for retrofits? This is the only reason I'm hesitant to pull the trigger on these because I'm afraid they won't have similar beam patterns.

MarcusK

  • The Raxiom DRL Projector Headlights have a built in set of cut off plates, and will give a clean cut off line like other projectors.

I would like to buy the Raxiom lights and it says it uses stock bulbs. This is fine but my stock bulbs are H13. The raxiom lights are H7. so that is not stock bulbs according to my 2006 Mustang GT. The question was asked before but I did not see an answer. If it comes with the H7 bulbs, can I upgrade to a brighter or LED H7 bulb ? The raxiom lights are great but if they come with or I have to use stock bulb, then it is not bright enough.

DavidB

  • The Raxiom DRL Projector Headlights come with pre-installed H7 bulbs. An aftermarket H7 LED bulb can be used, however HID's cannot be used as these will damage the projector, and void the warranty.

Can anyone that have these lights let me know if these are only low beam lights or do they have low high. I have purchased these and am worried that the visibility at night will not be what I need for driving if they do not have high beams and I will return for refund. I have asked AM questions on these lights and they know little to nothing and are not even answering peoples questions on here for whatever reason. I have even tried to reach out to Raxion on twitter just to be ignored. Please let's get the The community to help answer some of the questions being asked about these lights. Thanks in advance for your help!

    Raxiom DRL Projector Headlight - Black

    Finally a great set of headlights for the S197 Mustangs!!! I have purchased Raxiom products previously, so I was aware of their quality. These lights are a great product and really have updated the look of my mustang. These are a definite must do upgrade! My only recommendation is to NOT follow the instructions unless that is how you want to wire your lights, but I am not a fan of cutting into any harness. These are DRL (daytime running lights) headlights so, to me you want them to come on when you switch power to the car, not when you turn your parking lights on. If you need help with this hit me up on this page and I will assist you on how to do this without cutting into any harnesses on your car. I wired my lights the correct way (in my opinion) and they function perfectly. Over all though a great design and well built product!!

    These are a nice pair of headlights

    I previously had the raxiom 2010 style headlights on my mustang and they were nice but I was looking for something that looked more "mustang". With the tribar LED's up front I have to say that I'm satisfied. With the larger projector and chrome trim ring I think the whole package looks great. Wiring up the headlights with the included harness looks pretty straight forward, you will need to tap into the existing running light wiring for the new headlights. Fortunately for me I had already rewired for my 2010 style headlights with HID's and they were plug and play. These lights accept the H7 bulb and not the H9 bulb as the 2010 style lights had. I currently have the H9's stuffed in there while the H7's I ordered aren't here yet. I will say the light pattern on the 2010 style lights was amazing, I will reserve my judgement on these till I get the correct bulbs in there. And just like my prior projectors these have a moving shroud for the high beams which works well. With the stock airbox removed I'm able to aim the headlights using a phillips head screwdriver with everything removed which I'm happy for. I've had my bumper off a few times now and will have to take it off again for an intercooler install, but my best advice would be to buy additional 'christmas tree' or pushpin fasteners as I tended to break a few of the stock ones even with the plastic tools to remove them. There is a big honkin' sticker on these headlight housings that say not to put HID's in them so in doing so I guess your warranty is voided. I travel back roads so HID's are in every vehicle I own and will continue to be, gotta see those deer.

    Updated Look!

    Great looking lamps. Very happy with the new look. My son's 2006 now stands out. Don't expect them to be brighter than the stock headlamps because they're not. I would consider them equivalent. You have to remove the front bumper off the vehicle and do some minor wiring. Not rocket science, but if you're being careful it can take a couple hours at minimum to install. These lamps plus sequential tail lamps complete the look!

    Nice

    Been waiting for someone to do a proper modern headlight for the s197. Install is easy if you remove the bumper as other have said. The white diffusers are very nice but tend to look a little yellow/bone color with the headlamp on though. Also not sure if there is some confusion but my lights came with h7 55 bulbs in them. Not sure how a h9 would fit?

    Makes your mustang look vicious

    the lights that come pre installed are going to be h7 bulbs my mustang had the h7 socket if you want to upgrade to an led look for the h7 9008 they are basically the high and low beam together. Other than that they look great I don't like the halogen bulbs installed it looks better if you upgrade the h7 led bulb.
