2013 raxiom smoked halo headlights

I'm currently debating whether i should buy the Raxiom smoked halo headlights for my 2013 5.0. I currently have the halo foglights, but the color of the halos of the foglights and the factory headlights are different colors. The fogs are slightly blue while the headlights are a bit yellow. Anybody have any suggestions or pictures of their halo headlights on a 2013? Or even better, halo headlights and halo foglights on the 2013.

Not at 2013 but it's a 2012 and headlights can change over between models

Hopefully you did NOT take your new black car through an automatic car wash...

2012 & 2013 use the same headlights? They're interchangeable?

Yes. I haven't tried it but I'm almost completely positive if I wanted to I could order 2013 headlights and put them on my 2010 with factory HID's.

Interesting! So is there a way to put the 2013 OEM HID headlights on a 2012 non hid headlights? Are they interchangeable of does the non-hid make a difference?

Yes they are completely interchangeable and there is a wiring harness available online that makes them plug and play for non-hid cars. You will need the headlights, ballast, and bulbs in conjunction with that harness.

If you have factory HIDs, it is a direct swap.

I'll have to look up the harnesses website but they have everything on eBay. Even the headlights which are cheaper on eBay than anywhere else I have seen them. A guy on SVTP is selling a entire plug and play set-up for 1k. You can get by cheaper though.

Well I have the raxioms and they need headlights to be bright at all. Honestly a retrofit that is custom done is way cheaper and far better than oem lights. But if you want oem you will pay more money $$$.

I run a relay 35watt morimoto set up in my 2012 with raxiom headlights. It's plenty bright for me and the cut off is great for aftermarket headlights.

The only thing I don't like about the raxiom is the halos's but I can live with them if there that much cheaper than going oem hids! So if I get the raxiom's all I would need to make them brighter is replace the bulbs??

If you already have HIDs, then yes. If you don't have HIDs you will need a H9 hid kit that's is aftermarket. And if you don't like the halos just contact sickhids or something similar and get a retrofit. You can get a legit retrofit done that is similar to headlights of Acura, BMW, Mercedes cars for around $400 and it will be better and brighter than you ever imagined. I like my halo set up, and the headlights are great with HIDs
