MORIMOTO BI-XENON PROJECTORS: Morimoto’s new Mini H1 8.0s represent the grand finale in the series of “Mini H1” Projectors – representing what we believe to be most advanced H1 headlight projectors in the world today. Revised optics paired with a cast-curved cutoff shield produces one of the widest beam patterns we’ve ever seen. AR-Coated Optically clear lenses maximize intensity throughout, and keep the ECE-slope cutoff line sharp, colorful, and attractive. The standard MotoHo1der bulb holders are so much more precise than the old crappy spring-loaded units. Result: Maximum light on the ground, zero glare to oncoming traffic.
SHROUDS: Basically, they’re the trim piece that adds the finishing touch to your new fog light 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 fog lights, and also your personal preference on how they look. Check out all of the projector shroud options we offer and take your pick!
HID BALLASTS: Designed in California by Morimoto’s engineer, Yoshi Ishida, the Morimoto XB 2.0 HID Ballasts are just as good looking on the outside as they are well-engineered on the inside. They are available in both 35w and 50w versions, use proprietary software by the pros at Hylux paired with packaging perfection from the masters at Morimoto. This is today’s most modern iteration of a model that has sold more than half a million units since inception, and we don’t think it can really get any better!
H1 HID BULBS: Homegrown by Morimoto to out-perform any alternatives on the market when installed in projector-based fog lights–and it shows. We admit the latest generation XB HID bulbs are pretty impressive when compared to other bulbs, and even older Morimoto bulbs. At the heart of the XB bulbs is their perfectly-aligned 100% Philips quartz glass capsule that houses high quality halide salts from German-supplier Messer. In our annual lux comparison test, they produced nearly the same luminosity (intensity) as the industry benchmark Osram CBI bulbs at 5500K. No, you’re not seeing things here, but yes you will be seeing everything at night.
WIRE HARNESS: 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 lights 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.
OPTIONAL CANBUS HARNESSES: 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.
OPTIONAL HOUSING SEALANT: Protection is priceless! When you’re putting together a set of high-end fog lights, 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 fog lights from fogging up is beyond us. It’ll be the best twelve bucks you’ve ever spent.
