Review & Install Video
The Raxiom DRL chrome projector headlights are available for any 2005 to 2009 GT or V6 owner who's looking to add more modernized, advanced looks to their front-end by picking up a headlight style that is super similar to the unique S550s. These are definitely the most premium headlight in the category because of the more aggressive design. But the installation is still pretty simple, so expect one outta three wrenches on our difficulty meter, which I'll touch more on later on.
Taking a closer look at these headlights, they obviously have a very recognizable design, especially because of the three lighting strips in the corner closest to the grille. Those are gonna work in conjunction with your daytime running lights, just like your newer S550 Mustangs would. They've got the projector-style housing and bulb in the middle, of course, to show for your high and low-beam lights.
The styling here is for sure a polarizing one, it'll be a love it or hate it. But if you want a more aggressive front-end and a unique one at that, then this is a pretty good way to go, especially since it has a chrome housing. Now the chrome makes it stand out way more without a doubt, although it may not be for everyone, of course. It's got that eye-catching show car quality to it, which blends well with other chrome accents on the car for your early S197s, if I do say so myself.
The lighting performance has an upgrade to be mentioned here as well. Yes, of course, halogen lights won't be as bright as some of the LEDs or HIDs, but they are made to be brighter than OEM bulbs which is a much-needed upgrade in my opinion. The lighting is a bit whiter as well for a cleaner look. And the projectors, well, project a bit farther than stock as well.
The DRLs are high-powered LEDs in the three-strip fashion, which is cool accents, in my opinion, that will run during the daytime and nighttime, which is my personal favorite part of the design. The construction of the housing is made from all OEM quality materials, of course. It's all sealed tight to prevent from dirt and moisture from getting in and ruining the wiring.
Now these are some of the more premium options in the category. Spending just south of the $400 mark, you can get a pair for yourself, and I can definitely see why. There's a lot going on here with advanced technology. The three stripes, the DRLs, the projectors in the middle, the chrome flashy options, definitely something giving a more modern fashion. Some of the other options are a bit more basic, including, at most, a halo ring for an accent. So this is definitely taking the headlight game a step farther, which we already know from the S550s that they do. Raxiom covers this with their two-year full warranty, of course, so you at least get some peace of mind from them.
The installation is gonna get one outta three wrenches on our difficulty meter, but I will say it does require a very minimal amount of splicing, as you can see here by the ground and positive wires. This shouldn't be a problem at all, especially since it comes with quick splice connectors for the wiring, and of course, directions to get you through the process. Wanna have a very basic ratchet and socket set on hand, as well as about 30 minutes to an hour in the driveway at home.
You'll first need to pop your hood and remove the push pin clips holding on your factory radiator cover, then remove the bolts holding the top of your bumper into place. Remove the screws at each one of the front-rear wells connecting it to the bumper, then remove the few under the front-end as well. From here, you'll wanna pull your front bumper outta place. Next up, use your socket to remove the bolts holding on your factory headlights into place. And make sure you disconnect the wiring harness, so you don't pull them out and damage anything in the process. From here, you can remove the housing from the vehicle and safely set them aside. Put your new Raxiom housing into place on the car and use your quick splice connectors to wire your positive red wire and the black ground wire to the factory harness, all laid out for you in your manual, of course. From here, you can plug in the Raxiom harness for the bulb and bolt down the new headlights. Repeat for the opposite side, then pop your bumper back on and replace the bolts and screws, as well as the radiator cover and push pins, and you're good to go.
Just to wrap this one up, if you're the owner of an '05 to '09 GT or V6 Mustang, you might wanna check out the Raxiom DRL projector headlight in chrome, which is available right here at americanmuscle.com.
