BI-XENON PROJECTORS: The ACME projectors may be inexpensive, but they really do deliver real performance at the right price. Here, their standard bi-xenon projectors come standard with a clear lens and a curved cutoff shield to produce a wide, bright, and respectably sharp beam pattern. Based on older Morimoto designs, they may not be the cream of the crop by today’s standards – but that doesn’t mean they can’t hold their own. For the price we really can’t argue otherwise, and besides; unless you’re a real headlight nerd like us you probably wont notice the difference that spending twice would deliver down the road anyways.
ACME 35W SPEEDYSTART BALLASTS: Speedy Gonzales has nothin’ on the ACME SpeedyStart 35w ballasts when it comes to warm up time. These go zero to full intensity in just 3.5 seconds! So good in fact that we’ve discontinued the once popular “FastBright” ballasts in their favor. Their external igniters and high voltage wiring is shielded to help mitigate EMI interference (radio static) so it’s unlikely that these ballasts will disturb your afternoon rock block! They may not have some of the bells, whistles, or warranty that the more expensive options offer, but they certainly check the box when it comes to bang for the buck.
ACME H1 BULBS: Are no joke. Precise alignment, accurate color temps, and ultra-low failure rate. They truly are the standard others strive for!
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 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 PRECISION BULB HOLDERS: Designed by Morimoto in California, the new MotoHo1der utilizes a three-piece design that’s way more effective but virtually no bigger overall than the old clip setup. The clever three-piece design provides even pressure on the back of the bulb, ensuring perfect alignment. To be honest, we think it’s the single best upgrade to the projector that’s ever been conceived since it helps make the most of the awesome 7.0’s on the road. Well worth the extra few bucks in the grand scheme of things!
OPTIONAL LED HALOS: Though LED halos may not be for everybody, if you’re looking for the cleanest, most simple, most reliable setup, we highly recommend the Profile Performance Pivot 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 Pivot ring will automatically switch back to its pure white mode.
OPTIONAL HOUSING SEALANT: 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.
