INSTALLATION DOCUMENTS

Lucky You: While we try to have bolt-in swaps for vehicles with factory projectors, having brackets for every fitment just isn't viable. Luckily for you, the Universal Morimoto Retro-Quik system is designed as a direct bolt-on upgrade for a big performance boost inside fog lights of almost any vehicle with an existing projector.


Bi-Xenon Projectors: Morimoto's most modern bi-xenon, the Mini H1 8.0, was 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 projectors in the world today. Revised reflector optics paired with their curved cutoff shield produces one of the widest beam patterns. 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 8.0 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 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 fog lights--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 fog lights 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 fog light wire harness out there.


Optional Housing Sealant: Protection is priceless! When you're putting together a set of high-end fog lights, 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 fog lights from fogging up is beyond us. It'll be the best twelve bucks you've ever spent.

Great kit for 2007 Toyota Camry

by

I bought this kit for my camry as a birthday present to myself in February and was not disappointed. The installation process was far far easier than I had previously thought. with the included bracket they fit almost perfectly where the stock projectors in the ebay housings were. The output is Fantastic! A huge improvement from stock. I'm using morimoto XB 5500K HID bulbs with OPT7 5w ballasts I got off amazon so I probably could get even better performance.

Good kit modified for 2015 gmc 2500hd

by

Bit the bullet and installed this kit in a 2015 gmc 2500hd, anyone that owns one knows the factory lights absolutely suck. Took me about 10 hours to pull lights, split lenses paint and reinstall, some modification was needed. Splitting the headlights was the toughest part.



I can't believe I waited 3 years to do this. It's well worth it.

Pretty much everything you need..

by

I used this kit to Retrofit Mini H1's into some "Bora HID Replica" housings for my MKIV Jetta.



The most difficult part for me was getting the rotation of the projectors correct when mounted. But it's do-able with trial and error, and I think I got it close enough.



My only issues with this kit is that I wish TRS did a better job of differentiating between the "front" and "back" mounting kits. I contacted support, and they somewhat cleared it up. The photo isn't very clear. I ordered the "back" mounting version, it worked perfectly for my application.



The other issue I have is that the morimoto "ho1ders" can't be ordered directly from this kits menu. Very small detail, I know, but I would have ordered some from the beginning if I knew about them!



This kit is perfect for anyone replacing shitty projectors, and don't want to use any glue or etc. All you need is an efficient way to trim and cut the brackets. The results are incredible!
