NO SUBSTITUTES: Yeah the projector headlights that came on the C6 Vette’s were modern back in 2005, but by today’s standards – their light output is dated and it’s hard to argue the modern appeal of the C7’s full LED setup! Thankfully the new Morimoto XB LED headlights: Look great. Are well-built. Have a virtually infinite life span. An unbeatable warranty, and out-perform the alternatives. They are the first and last aftermarket option that the C6 Corvette Community needs, because when it comes to headlights: there is nowhere else to upgrade from here.
NEW WITH GEN TWO: We’ve always been blown away by the fact that even though the C6 came from the factory with OEM HID headlights, the performance was sub-par. The low quality optics inside the lights were not only poorly designed to begin with, but often lose 50% or more of their intensity over time due to de-lamination of the reflector bowl inside – leaving you with next to no light output to illuminate the road. The original version of the XB LED Corvette headlights was a huge improvement over stock, and the new generation takes that to the next level of performance
NEW BI-LED PROJECTOR: The gen two version comes spec’d with a brand new BiLED projector that produces almost twice the intensity of the original generation. The beam pattern is wider, has a much brighter hot spot, a better cutoff line, and undoubtedly a better distribution of light within the beam pattern. These projectors were originally developed for the brand new Ram 1500 headlights, but are making their way back into earlier models. Like other products in the Morimoto lineup, they’re always getting better with age!
DOT APPROVED: Make no mistake, these will produce a much different [better] result than slapping some LED replacement bulbs into your stock housings. Their projector optics meet & exceed all SAE, DOT, and FMVSS108 regulations when aimed properly…and that’s easy to do with their integrated vertical/lateral adjusters.
PLUG-N-PLAY: Wiring is easy too! This LED projector headlight kit is designed to work on your C6 Vette without any modifications. They will plug into the factory connectors for the stock headlights and each assembly includes all necessary connectors, rubber seals, and pigtails for a plug n play install. No error codes, no flickering, hyper-flashing, or radio interference. They can easily be removed, and will not void your factory warranty.
SEQUENTIAL LED DRL: Game Changer! Their LED daytime running light is powered by Osram 5000K LEDs and is insanely bright, easily visible during the day. They have a fully sequential LED turn signal behind modern “3D” type optics on the outside edge of the headlight too.
WELL-BUILT: Their UV-coated polycarbonate lens will resist the test of time, ensuring your Vette’s new headlights will look good as new for many years to come. The PPS plastic housing is light-weight and much stronger than comparable alternatives. The die-cast aluminum heat-sinks inside the housings provide more than an adequate amount of cooling for the OEM grade Osram LED chips that produce the light. These complete headlights may be new to the market, but Morimoto’s XB LED fog lights have proven themselves perfect after 5+ years out now, which is confidence inspiring.
THEY LOOK: Amazing. At least in our opinion! The subtle elements incorporated in their design are more than enough to make them stand out, but they’re clean enough to be considered top of the line original equipment to those who don’t know any better. All in all, styling that closely resembles the C7 headlights – making these the best way to facelift your C6.
