ROUND THREE: Yeah the FX-R Stage III kit has been around for a long time now, but it's stuck around for a reason. Based on the wise old lumberjack of the Morimoto projector family, the FX-R is the original bi-xenon built for big boys. No threaded shaft for easy retrofitting, nothing tiny about it. This is the kit for the guys who want the best and aren't afraid to get their hands dirty with a dremel.
BI-XENON PROJECTORS: The FX-R 3.0 is the most refined version of Morimoto?s very first bi-xenon projector, and it shows in their picture perfect light output. They use Morimoto?s Kuria optic clear lenses to give them a wide, intense beam pattern with a sharp and colorful cutoff line. The 3.0 version is optimized with a multi-faceted reflector bowl, curved cutoff shield, and the biggest, most reliable bi-xenon solenoid on the business. The FX-R is the biggest Morimoto projector and in some applications may take a little more effort to install, but man are they worth it! As the biggest Morimoto distributor in North America, all projectors are tuned to perfection here in our shop.
SHROUDS: 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!
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!
D2S HID BULBS Homegrown by Morimoto to out-perform any alternatives on the market when installed in projector-based headlight?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 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.
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.
