RetroQuick: VW T5.1 DRL light bar upgrade kit – Bi-Xenon


EM Tuning’s Retro quick kits are built around headlights that we have worked on and have used the kits ourselves, this was we can offer you any trouble shooting if you run into or need help if doing the work yourself, if you would like us to carry out the fitting service then please get in contact and we can give you a quote to fit the Retro quick kits.

VW T5.1: As the VW T5.1 Light bar headlights are a popular upgrade they look the part but we wouldn’t agree they perform as well, with this plug and play Bi Xenon kit you can guarantee that you will not struggle to see anymore.  More info on this kit can be found here

Brackets: These are made using a CNC machine to make sure they are made consistently and exact in every kit, this makes install and rotational alignment easy and bang on everytime, we have put these kits together to make it easy with the least amount of work as possible, if we don’t think its easy then you wont see the kit in out application specific section.

Bi-Xenon Projectors: Morimoto’s most modern bi-xenon, the Mini H1 7.0, 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 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, colourful, 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.

Precision Bulb Holders: Designed by Morimoto in California, the new MotoHo1der utilizes a three-piece design that’s way more effective but virtually no bigger overall than the old clip setup. The clever three-piece design provides even pressure on the back of the bulb, ensuring perfect alignment. To be honest, we think it’s the single best upgrade to the projector that’s ever been conceived since it helps make the most of the awesome 7.0’s on the road. An option on other kits we have defaulted these as standard for this kit as if you ever need to change a bulb in the future its makes it simple as the rear cover is not that large.

H1 HID Bulbs: Home grown 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 luminosity (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, we call these the MotoHo1ders.

HID Ballasts: Morimoto’s XB ballasts are a functional work of art. While the industrial-edge design by California native Artur Saakyan looks great from the outside, they’re packed with too much modern tech on the inside to cover it all in on place. Their DSP 3.0 circuit maximizes reliability, input and output efficiency. Their ability to warm the bulbs up to full operating intensity quickly is matched by few. Aftermarket HID ballasts aren’t all the same, and the XB’s make that clear in most every category in our opinion.
