    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.

    Clean Modern Styling. Update the appearance of your 2005-2009 Mustang with a set of Raxiom DRL Projector Headlights. These Projector Headlights feature tri-bar Daytime Running Lights similar to those found on the S550 Mustangs for sleek modern styling. The clean simple design of these Raxiom Black Headlights flow nicely into the lines of the S197 Mustangs for an OEM appearance.

    Superior Lighting Performance. Raxiom designed these Headlights with projector lenses to light up the road ahead with a bright focused beam of light that will improve your nighttime visibility. The integrated Daytime Running Light LED Accents will give your Mustang a more exotic appearance that will allow you to be seen day and night.

    Durable Construction. Raxiom manufactures their Headlights to precise standards from OEM quality materials. These Projector Headlights feature durable black plastic housings with clear lenses and modern LED DRL accent lighting. Each light is sealed to prevent dirt and moisture from harming the state of the art electronics.

    Straight Forward Installation. Raxiom designed their Projector Headlights to be a direct plug and play replacement for your Mustang's original factory housings. The DRL lights tap into your stock running lights using the supplied scotch lock quick splice connectors, so no cutting or modifications required for a clean straight forward install. However, it should be noted that you will need to lower the front fascia in order to gain access to the mounting bolts.

    Application. These Raxiom DRL Projector Headlights are designed to fit the 2005 to 2009 GT and V6 model Mustangs that are equipped with standard halogen bulbs. Does not fit Shelby GT500 Mustangs.

    5 Top Rated Questions

    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?

    • 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 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.

    • 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.

    Has anyone tried using these with the MMD Headlight Splitters? I have a set on my stock lights and I really like the way they look. I'm just wondering if they completely block the light beam or if they somehow work. That concern is the only thing keeping me from pulling the trigger on these beautiful headlights. The splitters are an uncommon touch in my area and I'd like to preserve that look.

    • We have not tested the Raxiom DRL Projector Headlights with the MMD Headlight splitters but they will work together just fine. The light beam will be be effected at all since they are projectors and the splitters generally do not change the amount of light emitted.

    Helpful (3)

    How do I adjust the light bulb to where the projector light is not shining on the ground? The lights point toward the ground as opposed to the front of the car.

    • The Raxiom DRL Projector Headlight have an adjustment screw on the back of the headlight housing. You can use it to raise the beam of the headlight.

    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 (05-09 GT, V6) are equipped with both a high and low beam function.

I did wire these up the way it should be, following the instructions of course and I do have LED's installed in them as well so I am guessing that I may need another Alternator with higher AMP to power everything I have in my 05 Mustang?

      Solid purchase, very satisfied.

      If you splice the headlights into the fog lamp circuit, you can operate the tri-bar lights indipendant of the headlamp projectors. Personal preference, but I personally think it gives the vehicle a cool and unique look.

      Dazzling Look. Drab Bulbs

      Like so many others have mentioned, these headlights completely transformed the look of my 05 V6. The DRL looks great and with my Mustang's bulb configuration, I do not mind having to turn on the parking lights. However, I am thinking about putting the DRL's on their own delay circuit that will turn them on 10 seconds after vehicle start. The only downside are the supplied H7 bulbs. Dull, dull, dull. My stock bulbs put out more light that was evenly spread. Even after adjustment, the projectors could not compare to my stock setup. My solution and recommendation is to go with LED's. My choice will be the SuperNova v.4. The adjustable collar ensures the LED's can be put in the correct position for maximum throw and spread.

I bought the Raxiom Gen 5 taillights a while ago and loved them so much and have experienced nothing bad so i knew i could trust the brand. Couldnt be happier, definitely recommend as the best looking headlights for the 05-09 mustangs available on American Muscle

      Styling is great but.......

      The headlights look freaking awesome. Not sure why they went with the more yellow led panels instead of cool white, but that's not a show stopper for me. Styling is great but the operation at night is another story. These headlights had so much promise as projectors. First of the bulbs included are absolute garbage. I'm looking to get some leds but am having a difficult time finding high and low H7's. The light isn't spread out across the road very well, and in turns doesn't light the road hardly at all. Most of the light is concentrated straight forward. If I had to guess about 85 to 90 percent is straight forward on both high and low beams. Maybe leds will diffuse better but I will hold my opinion for that when I get them. Other than that the lights are great. The install is pretty straight forward on these.

      Time Consuming, but worth the effort

      I really love the look of these headlights on the S197 models. I installed mine on my 2005 V6. It took about 4-5 hours by myself. Albeit, this was the first time I've disassembled the front of a S197. Some notes for those considering purchasing these: 1. You don't need to take off your tire/wheel to do the install. It certainly makes it easier and less crammed but you don't have to. 2. The pins for the splash shield (you have to take this off to remove the bumper cover) will break. Prepare to purchase more. Ford part number N807389S. You can get these for really cheap. 3. The bulbs on these lights are really weak halogens. I STRONGLY recommend buying a pair of LED bulbs (Size: H7). They run like ~$30 for a pair. If you do purchase LEDs, make sure to not put the giant rubber cap over top of it because they have little cooling fans that need airflow. Make sure to tuck those giant rubber caps off to the side to prevent them from touching the metal part of the bulb (they get very warm!). 4. Removal and re-attaching of the bumper cover should be done with 2 people. It's a big awkward part that would be of help to have an extra set of hands. 5. Use electrical tape to organize and tidy up your wires, it really makes a difference if you ever need to swap them out. I had an issue with the passenger headlight when installing it. The previous owner got a slight fender bender on the passenger side fender that I had pushed out by a Paintless Dent Removal Technician. One of the bolt holes was not lining up (by 5 millimeters) because the fender was pushing in the side of the headlight unit. So I just took a drill and shaved a little bit off of the headlight unit hole to widen it. That wasn't a fault of the headlight unit, but rather because of the pushed in fender. I give it a 4/5 simply based on that the only thing I wish for these headlights is that the day-time running lights were a more whiter color to match my LEDs. But other than that it's a great product and a great look.

      These headlights are absolutely amazing but one down side about it was the light bulbs that came with them. These light bulbs are not much brighter than stock ones. I think an LED conversion is a must. Other than that I love these lights totally transformed the look of my mustang.

      Love the look

      It was quite a task to install headlight. The instructions are complete except they missed telling us of the plastic tree type fastener between the two 10mm screws on the outside of the bumper. It created a problem when trying to release the bumper from the fender. They should have been removed earlier in the process. Good lighting which illuminates the road as well as the original and perhaps better. Also, we like the lower heat of the LED Daylight running lights as the heat buildup of the original headlights crazed the inside of the lens badly.

      Good headlight, bulbs from it not good

      As above mentioned, lights looks good and easy to install. I did wire the DRL to parking, they look even better on the actual vehicle. Two things be aware. 1. the bulbs come with it are not good ones, they work but did not live up to the expectation of the new light. I did upgrade with new LED kits, h7 plug, works amazing but more money. 2. the direction of light need to be adjusted, they come out from box pointing to the ground. visibility much improved after adjustment.
