Upgrade your Porsche 993 headlights with the Morimoto Retro-Quik system for a significant performance boost. This system, compatible with all 993 models, replaces outdated stock technology with modern bi-xenon projectors, specifically the Mini H1 7.0. These projectors feature enhanced reflector optics and a curved cutoff shield for wider low beam patterns and long-distance high beams, minimizing glare for oncoming traffic. The kit includes US-engineered mounting hardware, ensuring a straightforward installation process without the need to open the headlight assembly. Additionally, optional OEM HID ballast adapters allow seamless integration with existing HID setups, while Morimoto XB 2.0 HID Ballasts, designed in California, offer superior performance and durability. Pair them with Morimoto H1 HID Bulbs for optimal brightness and clarity at night. For reliable operation, consider the optional Relay Harness, featuring triple-sealed twin relays and 14ga. stranded copper wiring. Enhance visibility further with the optional High Beam Splitters, enabling simultaneous use of high and low beams without complex wiring modifications.

Lucky You: Halogen or OEM HID, Carrera or C2S, C4S or Turbo, even GT2? Regardless of which 993 you have, your stock headlights are running 25 year old technology now. Luckily for you, the Morimoto Retro-Quik system is designed as a direct bolt-on upgrade for a big performance boost inside the headlights on all Porsche 993 models. You can even swap the projector out from the back of the headlight (without having to open it)!

Bi-Xenon Projectors: Morimoto's most modern bi-xenon, the Mini H1 7.0was an instant winner upon launch. Representing the first full overhaul of the Mini H1 since way back when the 1.0 came out, it's now one of the most advanced headlight projectors in the world today. Revised reflector optics paired with their curved cutoff shield produces one of the widest low beam patterns we've ever seen, and a high beam that will easily go the distance. Kuria Optic clear lenses maximize intensity throughout, and keep the cutoff line sharp, colorful, and attractive. New side-action solenoids are more than 3x stronger than the old and fussy vertically-sprung units. Result: Maximum light on the ground, zero glare to oncoming traffic.

Mounting Hardware: 100% Engineered in the US. Laser cut from automotive-grade G10 fiberglass. The Retro-Quik brackets at the heart of the kit are designed to adapt the Morimoto Mini 7.0 Bi-xenon projectors directly in place of the unsophisticated stock units. Using the original mounting holes paired with new hardware, they are the beauty behind the kit that makes it an easy install. You're welcome.

Optional OEM HID Ballast Adapters: If your car has OEM HID headlights, you won't be able to reuse the same D2S HID bulbs in there currently. The optional Morimoto's ballast adapters allow you to reuse your stock HID ballasts and igniters with the H1 HID bulbs that these newly-fitted projectors require.

Optional 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!

Optional H1 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 lumin Osity (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.

Optional Relay 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 or how good your bulbs are, if your harness is a piece of crap, when it gives out your headlights are gonzo. The Morimoto HD Relay harness is easily worth the premium price compared to cheaper alternatives. With triple-sealed twin relays, 14ga. stranded copper wiring, over-molded fittings, and plug-n-play functionality, it will ensure everything functions properly and permanently from the original in-cabin controls. It's easily the best headlight wire harness out there.

Optional High Beam Splitters: Double high beams?! whaaaat! Put simply, the optional Morimoto high beam splitters allow you to make this feature work easily without any cutting or splicing to the factory wiring by diverting power from the halogen bulb into the projector's high beam solenoid, making them both work at the same time.
