Renowned: The Morimoto Elite Systems have earned their reputation amongst many as the aftermarket's best set of HID's. We urge you to check out the specs below, Read the reviews and then ask yourself whether your ability to see well while driving at night is worth saving a couple bucks?
NOTE: This kit is designed specifically for the newer MINI COOPER fog lights with OEM H13 bulbs
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!
HID Bulbs: The Morimoto Elite HID bulbs feature ceramic bases for precise alignment giving you a clean beam pattern. Quartz glass tubes to minimize UV output and maximize luminosity. Their Praxair (US) metal halide salts produce very accurate color temperatures in the 4K, 5K, and 6K range.
Wiring: The special Bi-xenon Harness features an all-new weather-pack extruded aluminum relay, 14 gauge stranded copper wire wrapped in durable black tech-flex mesh that looks like a factory harness once installed. No cutting or splicing here: all connections for this Bi-xenon Relay are plug-n-play. Most importantly, this harness includes the proper resistors and capacitor to absorb and smooth out the pulsed signal from the factory fog light circuit that plagues these cars.
Backed Up: Let's not forget the 5-year warranty on the entire kit*. The Morimoto Elite system is designed to run for 2500 hours, so that's what it's guaranteed for. Don't buy into empty promises from other places offering BS "lifetime" warranties. Nothing lasts forever, and if you think "the other guy" will be there to pick up the phone or even stay in business long enough to assist you when there's a problem; guess again!
