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 MorimotoXB 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.
Performance: 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 good news is that
Morimoto's 2005-2013 Corvette headlights produce a well defined beam pattern with
a great amount of width, intensity, and a proper distribution of light that
will far out-perform even the C7's more modern setup.
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
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.
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.
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.
