Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Hey what’s up everyone Justin with AmericanMuscle.com here checking out these smoked halo headlights for all 05-09 Mustangs. These headlights are a great way to freshen up the front end of your S197 Mustang while maintaining a stealthy appearance on the road. They’re also equipped with that always cool halo feature, which is sure to turn heads both day and night. The kit features a dark housing with a smoked out lens for an aggressive appearance which flows extremely well with the black accents and grille on the front of these cars. Now as a nice little bonus the headlights do come with a dual element H13 bulb, eliminating the need to purchase anything else. Installation should take you about 2 hours from start to finish; now there is a small amount of wiring necessary to get everything to function properly, so if you should need any help or assistance whatsoever, you can always reference the install video located on this page. Now a lot of you in the customer reviews section have mentioned that removing the front bumper completely makes installing the headlights much easier, you might want to give that a shot. If you want to invest in a set of smoked headlights and you’re a big fan of the halo styling, then you might want to check out a set of these smoked headlights for your 05-09 Mustang.

Stealthy Styling. These Axial Smoked Mustang Headlights have a stealthy modern design that flow nicely into the lines of the 2005 to 2009 S197 Mustangs.

Improves Visibility. Now you can improve your night visibility just by replacing your old weathered and worn out stock headlights with a brand new set of headlights from Axial. The Halo's use state of the art Cold Cathode Lighting "CCFL" for short to give an exotic flair to your mustang that sets it apart from the rest of the herd.

DOT Approved. Equipped with dual element H13 bulbs for high/low beams this pair of Axial Mustang Headlights are DOT (Department of Transportation) approved for legal street use under compliance # QR1200109.

Application. These Axial Smoked Headlights with CCFL Halos are designed to fit the 2005 to 2009 V6, GT, and Bullitt model Mustangs.

Bulb application. These Axial Headlights include dual element H13 bulbs for high/low beams. AmericanMuscle recommends high quality H13 replacement bulbs from Raxiom and Sylvania. See the drop down menu option above to select a new set of bulbs to go with your new headlights.

Technical Note. Not intended for use with vehicles equipped with Daytime Running Lights.

White or Blue? So many of the consumer pics show these (this question applies to the CCFL fog lights, too) as glowing white, and some(like your video) show blue. so what are they really? I'm hoping white.... Thanks


  • They are white. It has a hair of blue-ish look at certain lighting however it is definitely a noticeable white.

Will I be able to see clearly at night ?


  • The Smoked Headlights - CCFL Halo are a little dark, and if night time visibility is a concern, I would highly recommend an upgraded low/high beam bulb, such as a Sylvania bulb.

I just received these headlights in the mail and the halo looks amazing. It was just what I expected, but the headlight itself is not very bright. I am also not too fond of the color. I was wondering what is the best option to go with to get the headlight color to match the halo color, along with it being a bit brighter. I am currently using the default H13 bulbs that came with the headlights.


I really like the halo lights and would like to drive as is but my question is. In the video I see the halo by itself on and then 30-40 seconds in the video the light in between the halo gets turned on as well is the blue halo the normal driving light at night and the light in between the halo in the video that turns on is the high beam? Sorry for the dumb question I was just wondering if the blue halo circle was the normal driving light. Because I really like the blue halo by itself


  • Hello! The halo is just an accent light, it does not produce enough light to be used as a stand alone headlight

    Excellent! As long as you don't need to see anything.

    Title explains it all, as well as other reviews. Excellent show piece item. But when it comes down to seeing anything, or even using these headlights outside of broad day light. Look somewhere else. The beam only covers about 2.5-3 feet from your car. At best. On high beams, it'll cover maybe 5-8 feet. At best.

    Nice Lights, but...

    These smoked halos look great! Fitment was spot on, install in about an hour or so... but, the tint on the headlight housing is dark.. so regular bulbs won't shine as bright... wi think out hid or led lights visibility is very poor.. even with high beams. Also the adjustment screws are weak and will break easily, lastly.. when adjusting the lights...the only aim up so far before piping down to the lowest position and not comming back up.

    Looks AMAZING but has ISSUES

    The halos look incredible day or night and have heads turning everywhere I go. They were a bit tricky to install with having tho buy the quick splice connectors seperately and then the halos didn't want to light but this was due to my own wiring inexperience. Took me about 6 hours total but I also install halo fog lamps and smoked turn signals. Biggest issue I'm currently having with these headlights is that, like many other reviews say, the height adjustment is faulty on both lights. I've been reading some advice on how to fix this myself without comprimising the light or housing but if that fails I will try a replacement. Biggest pain is going to be the removing and rewiring multiple times to remove old set, reinstall stock, wait for new lights to arrive, then reinstall new lights. AM has been very helpful and has some of the best customer service I've seen but the pushing of parts with known problems and defects is looking to be a black mark on the overall company quality. Other problem is very bad light output with the smoked lenses. (Which was expected with a smoked headlight) I've tried several different bulbs but all about the same. I will be looking into HID lighting soon and hope it helps without the "light scattering" I've heard about on reflection style light. All in all this light does look VERY SEXY but it doesn't function very well. In other words its a great light for looks but not for works. Still love American Muscle though. You guys are awsome. :-)

    Look great....function terrible

    I received these as a Christmas gift, now unfortunately it's way past the return period since they sat in their boxes until the weather was nice enough here in Indiana to install them. Install wasn't soo bad, just removed bumper cover as most people have stated and used butt-connectors to wire the halos to the parking lights. Now once they were in they looked amazing, halos could be seen in bright light but once the sun goes down that's where it all ends. The high and low beams are backwards and like others have said, you cannot adjust these lights to make them safe enough to use at night. I turned the screw as far as it would go and the adjustment popped apart and it won't adjust anymore at all. I'm going to have to take the bumper cover back off to snap it back together, however since i'm taking it apart once again I'm just going to put the stock headlights back in so I can actually feel safe driving at night. I can't comment on the light bulbs that they came with because I had already upgraded to HID's from ddm tuning. Even with the HID's these lights still only shined about 10 feet in front of the car at their brightest point.

      Regardless of waiting to install, we would still be able to help you with a replacement as your lights absolutely have some defects from the manufacturing process. I haven't heard of the high and low beams being backwards previously. Please give us a call at your earliest convenience so we can further assist you with this.

    Smoked CCFL Halo Headlights

    AmericanMuscle.com sent me the headlights very quickly. Took off the front bumper, pulled out the old and put in the new wired the Halos up, and made sure everything worked properly and put the front bumper back on. Later that day when the sun went down, I went to aim the headlights. As I was turning the screw I watched 10 feet away from the wall the lights go up, and heard a thunk and the light was aiming down, tried to aim it up and it would not go up anymore. AM sent told me it was not common, however it has happened in the past and they sent me a new pair while I kept these in just had to use my Hi Beams everywhere. Once I received the new lights, I switched them out and was much more delicate and slow in the process of aiming these. They did the same thing... However after playing around with it I managed to put whatever it was that was falling out of place back and now I just have them aimed to their max height, and that works absolutely fine. As far as how much I like them, the Clean Smoked look is so much better than the previous tinted headlights, just looks so much nicer or cleaner like they have not been modified. The Halo I have to say I am very impressed with, as I did not believe it would be as bright as it is, and absolutely love it. Even when I turn on my headlights on during the night, the halos are extremely and perfectly visible. I think one reason why is because there is actually a little piece that hangs down covering the tip of the actual headlight bulb (does NOT decrease visibility at all) but the Halo is absolutely beautiful, and really gives you that serious modified showy look wherever you go. They are visible in the daytime however not on a sunny day. The look I underestimated and didn't expect to look so good, the headlights themselves if you buy just make sure to take maximum caution when aiming, it is easy to aim them just, make sure to be very slow and don't over due it. Overall am Happy with the purchase and customer service.

    Great looks, poor performance, poor adjustment...

    I really liked the looks of these lights as they highly resemble the factory lamps, but have the halo's. I am not a fan at all of projector lighting as I think the car has to be physically designed to look right with projectors and 05-09's, IMHO, just don't looks right with them. So I got them installed and that was pretty easy, even without instructions. I already have a 6000k, 55w H13 HID kit for Morimoto in my 06 GT, so I installed those and waited till night time. When I finally fired them up, initially, they looked great. But, I was quickly disappointed with the amount of light they let out. I know they are smoked, but probably a bit too much. Even with my HID's, I would have a hard time seeing at night if it wasn't for my HID 5000k, 35w Morimoto fogs. I shut those off while driving and have only headlights and visibility is terrible. To make things worse, the adjustments only let you aim them so high, when compared to the factory assemblies. I think I am going to ask AM to refund my purchase and go with the unpainted retro headlights instead.

    Defective aiming mechanism

    Installed and look great. However, I can't aim these lights. When you start turning the aiming screw and start to watch the beam go up (about 10 feet off a wall) you see it rise to a point, then it you hear a pop and it no longer rises. The screw is not even half way at capacity. I took the lights out and inspected. Its a defect in the design. The lights just don't aim high enough. I ended up shimming the bottom of the mounting bracket to get the lights to an acceptable level, but they still are not aimed high enough and shimming the brackets affects the overall look of the lights. Not a good solution. Can't recommend these lights.

      The Smoked lenses will diminish light out put. We highly suggest upgrading to the Raxiom H13 replacement bulbs as they will provide a brilliant white light and greatly increase the nighttime visibility.

    BULB REVIEW: Want smoked with halos? Get HID's as well.

    Alright the great thing about this product is that it simply looks amazing. The pictures don't do them any justice. If you want a smoked appearance and don't want the projectors or anything that messes with the appearance of the stang's stock headlights then you should not hesitate to get these. They are a good fit with no problems during install. The one bad thing about these headlights is that they shipped without the "included" wire quick splices. Not a problem if you have some anyway, but none came with mine. It's the first time I didn't get a full kit from AM, and it might not have been their fault since these lights were pretty heavily packaged. Now on to the bulbs: I wish someone would have reviewed the bulbs before I bought these headlights, so I am passing this favor forward. I have tested these headlamps with the tint they come with on 3 sets of bulbs: Stock 2005 headlamps, stock replacement included in the kit for no charge, and the RAXION H13 white upgrade bulbs for an additional $30. bucks. First off the 2 sets of stock type bulbs showed noticeable dimming through the tint and the color of both were yellow standard so it didn't look great either. The RAXION H13 had a much better appearance but showed only a slight improvement on the 2 sets of stock type bulbs. With that said I have cars coming up behind me and I can clearly see the shadow of my car in front of me in MY headlight area. The simple solution to see as well and better than stock bulbs on non-tinted headlights is to get the HID kit American Muscle sales. I will be getting that soon myself. It's very simple, these headlamps are not as bright as stock lamps even with the upgraded bulbs on standard beams. (can't ride on high beams all the time) So if you do any kind of night driving it would be worth the money to get an HID kit, and while you need to remove the bumper to put these lights in. might as well put HID's in too. PS: The install video isn't bad, but you might have to remove 2 push plastic top anchor pins in the fender well. They don't have them on newer (07-09 I think) but my 05 took me an extra 45mins to deal with the little buggers...... Install time 3 hours including minutes of fighting with fender well push pins. Bumper removal wasn't bad. The entire install can be done in just under 2 hours.

    Look awesome but...

    I bought them, installed them myself, and they look awesome! You almost have to get HID's because the yellowish light of factory bulb looks terrible compared to the hard white light of the halo. Now for the but... They don't show up at all during the day. Not a big deal. What is a big deal is after a year and a half water started getting into the headlight. I didn't take care of right away and now one of the halo's doesn't work any more. I will be buying another set of lights and I will be doing additional sealing with silicon rtv this time.

    These are sic

    I bought these back in July 2009, I was turning heads, people staring at them at the red light. They are getting more popular though. I see other aftermarket designs with smaller halos. I wanted the stock look though. Easy install. Take the front bumper off, wheel well shields off, then wire the halos into the parking lights. I used a wire tester found the positive and negative on 12v and was good to go. Def. a great deal and changes the whole look of your car.

    Amazing Lights!

    Took me and my dad about 3 hours to install these guys. The lights did not come with any instructions at all and the instructions on AM's website were not very helpful. Installation thankfully is pretty straight forward. It is waaaayyy easier to take the front fascia off. You just have to find out which wire powers the parking lights and tap into that one with the red wire from the lights. Then black goes with black. Overall, installation was not too difficult and the product is exactly what I wanted! Doesn't dim your actual headlights too much either! I definitely recommend this product to anyone trying to update their ride's look!

First, i googled other videos after spending an hour trying to get old lights out. it is MUCH faster to just take bumper off. also the instructions on web site was not clear on the wiring of halo. had to spend another $26 on hanes book to figure our wiring harness for turn signals. lights themselves came with NO instructions.

    Had these lights proffesionaly installed. They look amazing when on. Change the whole look of the front of the car and give the car a mean look. People have said it looks like eyes. Even during the day time the halo lights look good. Make sure you buy different bulbs than the bulbs in the stock headlights. You will need brighter bulbs in order to see the road well through these headlights lenses.
