There about as bright as stock lights. There not HID bright in any way but they do look cool. I got them because I wanted a different look than the stock lights but I knew they wouldn't be too bright. Also make sure you silicone where the lense attaches to the housing all the way around the lense or else they will leak. They are known to leak and i didn't silicone mine and they leak pretty bad when it rains.

The only thing you can do to make them a little brighter is upgrade the bulbs

I have the Raxiom halo head and fogs for my 08. Purchased from AM. They look awesome. The money spent is well worth it.
As stated above, MAKE SURE YOU UPGRADE YOUR BULBS BEFORE INSTALLING THEM
I failed to do that, so now I have to wait for a nice day to change the bulbs, which requires me to pull the bumper....again and remove the housing.
The back of the headlight housing for the 05-09 raxiom halos headlights have a separate housing on the back that encapsulate the bulbs(weather proofing). Only way to access it is to remove the housing.
Check out my pics, you can see how they look in the different stages of the lights being turned on

The bulbs provided with the housings when purchased, no way provide sufficient enough lighting for night driving. They aren't bad, but definitely aren't good. I bought sylvania ultras $59.99 at Autozone, I believe they will do the trick

Don't have the leaking problem. Just can't access the 2 top screws on the back to pull off the housing to get to the bulbs

I even talked to AM, they said that I have to pull the housings to get to the top 2 screws. We had a pretty good laugh at me not being smart enough to not upgrade the bulbs before I had them installed

But sylvania ultras should put out adequate lighting as opposed to what is provided with the housings

Lol oh you don't have to worry bout the sweet looks, I coupled the headlights with the foglights, and it's complete badassness lol
Gives it an aggressive look.

This is both the raxiom smoked halo heads and fogs.
I actually just received my foglight covers this morning from AM to darken the fogs even more. Gotta wait till it stops raining so I can wash my car then put them on
If you want those, better order now. I waited 2 months to get the foglight covers

But you will be pleased with the look they give.

Here you go
I had them installed by a body shop. Minimal wiring. But I'm completely illiterate when it comes to wiring, so I left it to the professionals

Just as bright as stock with a bulb upgrade. I spoke with StangMods today. They don't have an HID kit for these raxioms 05-09. But he said they will pull one if their cars in and build an HID kit for this model and contact me in a few weeks when it's complete.
I can see with the bulbs raxiom provided with the housings, but they aren't as good as the OEM lights. So I bought sylvania ultras to replace them. Just waitin on a nice day to change them.
I figured if I can see with the junk bulbs they provide, then the sylvania ultras should do just fine.
