Automotive lighting geeks will certainly be impressed with the Morimoto Bi-xenon Stage IV Projector retrofit system. With standard equipment from Morimoto and options from some awesome OEM’s like Denso and Philips…your headlights are going to be doing zero to full intensity in three seconds flat.
Are bound to change the game, yet again. Head to head with any OEM projector, the quality is spot on, but the Morimoto Mini D2S 4.0 is: 1) So much easier to retrofit with their extra long mounting shaft and 2) So much brighter. They actually failed to pass FMVSS108 testing only because the measured lux at certain points throughout their beam pattern exceeded the maximum allowed! With 4th generation Mini D2S optics powering across their curved cutoff shield and through the standard Kuria Optic clear lens, the Mini D2S 4.0 is a force to be reckoned with. Razor Sharp, unbeatable width, perfectly distributed gradient of light down to the foreground, and a high beam that’ll put some off road LED bars to shame.
Basically, they’re the trim piece that adds the finishing touch to your new headlight retrofit. They cover the projector after it’s installed to restore the factory-finished look inside the housings. With so many different shapes, sizes, and designs available; we really recommend picking one that suits the geometry inside of your headlights, and also your personal preference on how they look. Check out all of the projector shroud options we offer, and take your pick!
From Matsushita or Denso, these have a virtually-instant warm up time, bringing the HID bulbs to their full intensity within 2-3 seconds. When waterproofed, these ballasts are virtually “bomb proof” by preventing moisture damage and enhancing their warranty coverage. Without waterproofing, they are susceptible to moisture ingress–something not covered by their warranty!
Are the benchmark for high quality 4300K HID lamps. With their extra long life span, unmatched precision, and high luminosity – they’ve been an OE benchmark for ten years. These days, you can upgrade to the super Osram CBI or NightBreaker bulbs for even more luminosity and white light. If you’ve got the money, go for it! We take pride in being one of the few retailers that only sells genuine OEM products.
As one of the most important parts in any HID lighting upgrade; don’t skimp out when it comes to your wiring. It doesn’t matter how good your ballasts are. How good your bulbs are. If your harness is a piece of crap, when it gives out your headlights are gonzo. Morimoto’s harnesses are the best on the market and easily worth their premium price compared to cheaper alternatives. No matter which one is right for your application, the harness features triple-sealed central relay packs, 14ga stranded copper wiring, over-molded fittings, and plug-n-play functionality. This will ensure everything properly (and permanently) works with your vehicle’s original in-cabin controls.
Instead of a traditional relayed harness that draws power from the battery, Morimoto’s Standalone Canbus harnesses use two individual sub-harnesses to keep a load on the factory wiring. Recommended for vehicles that recognize when a bulb is out, these contain a series of capacitors and resistors to trick the car into thinking nothing has changed and help you avoid annoying “bulb out” warnings. We generally recommend them for use on most modern European applications instead of normal harnesses since they do a great job at providing stable power to the ballasts and canceling bulb out warnings.
Though LED halos may not be for everybody, if you’re looking for the cleanest, most simple, most reliable setup, we highly recommend the Morimoto XSB Halos. Not only are they the brightest, most uniformly lit halos currently on the market, but they double as a switchback turn signal with your blinker circuit. The integrated controllers are extremely easy to setup with only three wires (white, amber, and ground) and allow you to run the white mode continuously until interrupted by the signal – at which point they will blink amber. Once the signal stops, the XSB ring will automatically switch back to its pure white mode.
Protection is priceless! When you’re putting together a set of high-end headlights, the last thing you want is moisture in ’em the first time it rains outside. RetroRubber is the most effective way to make sure the original seal is fully restored. For the small price, why anybody wouldn’t prevent their new headlights from fogging up is beyond us. It’ll be the best twelve bucks you’ve ever spent.
