Advanced Install Universal Retrofit Kit
Bi-Xenon: Morimoto FX-R Stage IIIB-RFK-FXRS3
[ In Stock: pieces ]
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.
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.
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.

I got the fxr 3.0 installed on my BMW e34 that used an existing halogen projector, so install was really not that difficult once I figured out where to cut and mount. These projectors produce a wide beam angle, unlike any halogen lense could ever do, and the morimoto 4300k bulbs have only a few second warm up first thing in the morning and once warm fire up to full intensity right away.
<br>The wiring harness is real easy to install, and I was able to install it in a way that it is unnoticeable with the hood open (obviously with time taken to tuck it away).
<br>Over all, I'm very impressed with the retrofit source and their products and ill continue to support their business to whoever is looking for headlight upgrades.

Installed this kit on my F-150 a few months back after one of my bulbs on a Plug-N-Play kit went out. I decided if I was going to do HID's again, then I was going to do them the right way. I expected to be proud of my lights for a few weeks, but after a few months I can say that it puts a smile on my face every time I turn them on. Great products all the way around, this is the place to buy from if you want outstanding light output.

It took about a decent 7 hours to get them in my Civic housings, but once I got them in, aligned, and fired up for the first time I questioned why I waited so long for this, because you can literally see so much more than one could imagine than halogens and those lame "HID's" that just drops in. And the cut off? It's so good that when I was driving in the evening, I could only see the bottom half of the runner. The light didn't even glare up for me to see the rest of them. A highly recommended upgrade from reflector types.

The difference between these projectors and PnP kits is night and day.I'm actually ashamed of myself for dropping a PnP kit in my car after seeing the results of retrofitting the Fx-Rs.Installing these is actually easier than it seems for 1st time retrofitters.

<br>The end result of this kit is flawless!
<br>The cut off's are beautiful, the roads are now completely visible at night, and I love the aggressive look of the 3" projectors.
<br>The hardest part was actually removing the lens from the headlights.
<br>I've never done a retrofit ever before and I was able to complete the project.
<br> I'm very thankful for the support I received from The Retrofit Source. Their resources helped me step by step throughout the whole process.

These are simply awesome. Easy to use and perfect mounting holes. I put these in my F-150 and these will put any high-end Beemer, Merc, or Caddy to shame, bar none. Well worth the money and 8 hours I spend retroing them. Highly recommended!

I purchased the FX-R 3.0 complete kit for my 2005 Honda Civic based on a previous success story I came across on the 7th Gen Honda Forum. While following that individuals approach, I decide to take the same path and chose the Morimoto 5Five ballasts and the D2S: XB35 5000K bulbs. The install took me a bit longer than I expected as I ran into some speed bumps while doing it. However, as I've seen people state previously, it is DEFINITELY, DEFINITELY like comparing night and day! I originally started out with halogen bulbs and wanted a more aesthetic appearance so switched to a PnP HID kit. This was working out for me very well until I decided to do a blacked out headlight DIY. This greatly decreased the light output and I was disappointed for quite some time. The roads were left poorly lit and I came across forums speaking about retrofits and began my search for the more intricate details. I was steered in the direction of The Retrofit Source and after having to wait out the next step of purchasing a kit due to where I was living at the time, I finally got them! I have now completed the installation and I am sooo excited and extremely pleased with the vast increase in light output! Projector retrofitting has now been added to the list of one of the best things I could have ever added to my car! Thanks you so much again The Retrofit Source!
