they are awesome!!! they are so close to being right on it is incredible that this is only the second set. the first set took awhile for the professionals to get to fit. these took me (a regular dude) minutes to get on. the only problem i have is a blown bulb. the city lights that are a small bulb contained in the larger light go on with the parking lights and are a pretty cool feature.

Looking good man. It's great to see progress on these.


Is it just me or does it looks like the right headlight has some fitment issues. It looks as though it doesn't fit flush against the hood, and the outer portion doesn't follow the body line. Is it just me?

Regardless, looking good...

So whats the 411 on this mikey? Were they just not fully installed or what? (I got $5 bucks that says some CEGer welded the tab back in on that side because mikey wouldn't share the love.)

the drivers side is off because it seems that the car had taken a bit of a hit. there is evidence on the inside of the engine bay. on sunday i will be putting them on another contour so we can see just how close they are. these lights are everything that we have been waiting for and more. i just cannot believe how they transform the front of the car all by themselves.

the lbulb does work. i must have not had the connector on all the way in my haist to get them on and pics.

i have heard no more on the price, time etc. we are close thats all i know.

I think it looks pretty good like it is, with the black on silver, since the grill is all black. But I'm sure they will look good painted as well.

i snapped the pics you see and then took the housings to the painter. it was early this afternoon. i havent had them in the dark yet. when i do i will post my findings.

the lights used seem to be larger then the ones on the first set of prototypes but dont quote me on that. this is the second set (grey mold) in a set of three prototypes. these are still only prototypes guys. they say it right on the backs of the lights.

i will have these lights on for 3 meets around the midwest. the first meet is this sunday in the chicago area. the second meet is in des moines on the 12-14th. the third meet i am going to make it to is the sept. 3 meet in MI. if you can make it to one of these meets then you can see this set of prototypes first hand. i want to get these in front of you guys because i dont think the pics do them justice. harold and gerard from morette france have done an amazing job.

All good answers! But I'm still wondering about the bulbs. Are they gonna be available in the USA or will they have to ordered from across the ocean? See ya in September.

i had that made and put on my car this week. i designed the future logo of morette usa. the banner says "moretteusa.com"


i also designed the place holder with a flash banner for their web address while i work on designing their main site. the place holder should be up soon. morette usa is adding a few things to it. working with morette usa has been a ton of fun and i look forward to helping them more as they grow.

ok this is how the process works. they made the first prototype. they fit it. they make changes. they make a second prototype. they fit it. they make changes. they make a third prototype. they fit it. they make the final product. we are only 2/3rds the way through the development. when they are dont they will be perfect. the paint may be a little off, there may be minor changes, it is part of creating a product.

are these going to be available without the halogen lamp assemblies? they look like good candidates for hid projectors.

? what difference would it make in the appearance? the hid projectors would be the same size as the halogen ones, just difference specs to account for the difference in the bulb...

Projector / HID morettes would look awesome!

People who chose to forgoe morettes are going to have a slew of nice headlight options when people who want them start selling their projector headlamps

sorry no pics of the drive last night but the performance of the lights is great. the low beams (H4) are marginally better than stock but the brights blow the stocks lights out of the water. todras will back me up on this. i will get pics tonight i think.

Sure will! I wanted to take a pic from inside the car but the batteries in my cam died right before I could snap one. When you hit the brights the Red Sea parts. Great full coverage beam pattern on low but run for cover on high. They weren't even aimed yet either!

Looks awesome! Not sure how the revision process is being handled, but it looks to me that the only real issue is where the Morette, the fender and the hood meet, there's too much of a gap/hole. Extend the Morette up a little there at that corner and PRESTO! Can't wait to see the finished product. Good job and thank you Morette! Same goes to you Mikey!

How would the city lights look for people with DRL's ?

Also, the blinker parts seem to stick out a ways past the fenders on both sides. Are these using the same contour as the stock headlights?

It looks like that to me too. I daresay that a fourth prototype wouldn't be unreasonable. Nonetheless they do look good...

guys, we already took pictures and documented the fitment problems with the lights on the 31st. there's still one more set of prototypes before they go into production. when they come out, they should be perfect

I really don't know if these "suggestions" are really us questioning the fitment of the Morettes, as we know that they are going to be revised. I think we are more or less asking if that is what they are "supposed" to look like, and people just have differing opinions. Some may want them to stick out a little bit, while some might want a smooth "OEM" like curve.

My point exactly. I too think it would look pretty bad if it didn't have a perfect curve to it. Evidently people that were at Mikey Boy's house are saying that they are NEAR PERFECT, so I assume that those certain people might like the way they look as they sit. Difference in opinion/taste.

I don't know about a difference in opinion or taste. If they had a third light in them and some people liked that and some didn't that would be a difference in taste. IMHO if the hump stays, then they just won't look right.

"what about the DRLs?"

they will perform exactly the same. the city lights take place of the parking lights on this set. will it be that way when they are released? i have no idea. the passenger side blinker is almost perfect the driver side needs some work. more pics coming soon.

haha, when I saw some of those pics I thought they were mine cause I have some of the same angles.

if the final products look at least as good as these prototypes then I'll be happy, because they look DARN good.

really the only problem I have with them, which to me is something I can still live with, is the bit of gap that you can find by the hood and the sides.

I think I'm almost definitely going to have to buy a set for my car. (mikey even said at the meet, that's gonna have to be my next mod, even though something will come first cause I'm not going to wait till these come out to continue moddin)

For the purposes of an automobile, the effect of these headlights on its aerodynamics is negligible. If it was a plane... yeah, it'd make a difference

I can very easily see that happening. They are so . This is a major, major mod for our cars and we should be thankful that still another company is willing to research and come up with this. But, until they can take care of the gaps, which may not look as major in person as they appear in the pictures, I'm not sure I'm gonna be interested. I commend all who have had a part in making this happen, but I sincerely hope the third prototype addresses these problems.

(That being said, I'm still living with the CF cowl hood gap. I just don't want to draw more attention to the problem. One of these days, I'll have to try and adjust the fender.)

morette
here is the link to morette's web site. take a look around at what kind of products they make and how they fit. dont forget to look at the customers rides section. they make some great products.

we are very fortunate to be able to be part of the development of these lights. development of a product takes time to get it right. these are only the second prototype that morette has produced, so people's "they dont fit perfect" statements are right on. they dont fit perfect, but then again it isnt a final product yet. it is only the second prototype.

when you see pics of the third prototype they might not fit perfect either. this is all a process of producing a product that will in the end be spectacular. morette is a quality company with quality engineers. they care so much about this product the president of the company and a lead engineer flew to chicago from france to start off this process. with a little patience and a little idea of how things work you will see that in the end they made us an awesome alternative to our stock housings that completely transforms the car.

So the ones Morette is making now that you're discussing are different from the ones they have already for the Mondeo?
http://www.ccmotorsport.co.uk/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=morette-contour&Category_Code=ford_contour

I don't know about this thus I ask. The conversion kit looks about the same. Please inform me.

Thanks!

the mondeo morettes are too tall and too short width wise to fit. the front of the mondeo and contour are very different. these are specifially made for the post 98 contour. if you look around there are many threads discussing this process.

question:

doesn't the city light usually go in the hi beam housing? B/c of the cars I've seen (Mercedes etc.) that have the city lights they are in the hi beams so that when the lights are on all 4 lights are lit up i.e the low beams and the hi-beams lit up w/ the city light

The morettes look like the city light is in the low beams. Anyone else notice this?

The city lights are in the low beam. Pics of them on are on the 1st page. The same location as the Mondeo lights. They don't throw enough light to aid in overall lighting in any make model. What's the point of your post?

His point seems clear to me...

If the city lights were in the high beam location, when the low beams were on you would see all 4 lights lit up on the front of the car.

With city lights in the low beam location, you don't get that effect.

Yes, it would be purely aesthetic, as city lights are not bright enough to light the road, but maybe it would look better.

Definitely not complaining here though, I'm all in on these Morettes.

Edit: Nevermind, after looking at the pics again, it would be stupid to have the city lights in the high beam (inside) location. They definitely need to be on the outside.

Not on our Mercedes... it's in the low beam part.



Low beam is the outer square part... high is the inner triangular shaped part.

Don't have a good shot of the city lights working... just looks like really dim headlights.

There's a Mitsubishi ??? VR-4 sedan that also has them in the low beam.

In the foreign GM cars, they're in the high beam... N.A. built vehicles (GM, Jeep, etc.) don't have them.

With city lights in the low beam location, you don't get that effect.





In my 97 integra and in my 96 tour, city lights are in the high beams and when I turn on the low beams, the city light goes out leaving the high beams unlit.

I see two that would smoke a Contour in a straight line race, one that would chew it up in the corners too. Looks are subjective. How is it that they suck again??? Just cause you don't have one maybe? Sorry, just tired of one sided cornholed views on internet bashing...

Mikey, nice site designing. One thing I like to do though is take over the domain registering and everything when I do a site to control when it loads. Makes everything go so much smoother when a site launches.

Awesome. I sent them feedback saying the lights looked awesome and when could I get some? It also put me on the mailing list for when they are ready. I recommend people doing the same so that you find out when they are ready and that Morrette will see the genuine interest. THis should be posted on fordcontour.org as well.

they are prototypes, there is still more R&D to be put into them, the process would move faster if they had a tour over in france, rather than having to fly out here.

For the people asking about the gen 1 Contours. I believe these may fit, they are for the Mondeo mk1. I've seen them on a 95 or 96 Contour. So someone made them fit.

If they are going for DOT approval the indicators will end up having to be orange with a reflector, and will also have to serve as a parking light. DOT requires that cars have orange reflectors on front sides and white or orange lights visible from the side at the front. Shouldn't be difficult to reverse that though, hopefully Morette will sell the clear lenses seperately.......

Shouldn't be difficult to reverse that though, hopefully Morette will sell the clear lenses seperately.......




The lens are clear, the bulbs inside are amber. If they are illuminated all the time as ours are, that should be enough. Hopefully they won't press the reflector issue. That could be a major roadblock. Mikey said the Neon ones are done and that ours should be next but now I wonder how long it's really gonna take. The Neon ones are easier since they don't require the reflector/side marker...it's already in the fender.

so how about this.... if Morette were to include with the lights a reflective sticker, then the "kit" would be DOT legal, and up to the owner to decide to keep it that way. Morette can show DOT the lights on a car with the sticker attached to a similar location as that Neon.

Also.... what size are the high beams? Wondering if the drivers side one is large enough to feed the airfilter (after removing the drivers-side light, of course).

That's what I was thinking, kindof like the clear corner lamps I bought for my girl's Cavalier. They had a little orange reflector in the box....

thanks! I just updated the cardomain site w/track pictures from CougarFest 2005 this morning.. I'll try and update again soon - those indoor pictures tend to not flatter the car at all..

and in all honesty I just purchased a 98 Silver Frost CSVT which I finally pick up from the previous owner this upcoming Monday.. I'm really stoked though.. I've been drooling over these cars for a few years.. now I'll finally have one!!! Hopefully I won't be provoked to mod it to the point of no longer being able to drive it safely. Addictions suck.

Sorry, but I don't understand why on earth you would want to do that.




since I don't drive around with my high beams on, I wouldn't really need it. That would feed right into the heat shielded intake area, so why would that be such a bad idea? My car is a city car (my wifes Intrepid is the vacation car), but IF I ever needed to go driving in the backwoods, I could reattach the drivers side high beam.

No biggie... I'll measure it when I receive mine

Good luck! SVT or not, these cars are hard to resist. I have owned 3, 1 silver frost 98 SVT, 1 95 se V6 mtx, and now a 98 se V6 mtx. Every time I have sold one, it haunts me until I buy another! They are just so nice!

Well really you would have to move the fuse box and battery or they're just going to block the air anyway.

that looks to be Mikey's car.. I think that company is just ahead of the game and even if you bought them they would tell you that they were out of stock or not yet available.

it's cool to see some sort of pricing though..

That link looks bogus to me... that's not Mikey's car, that's a straight up Mondeo. Unless they are customizing the Mondeo ones to fit, I'd say no-go on that.

Also notice it talks about how they're manually adjustable and "if your Contour came with electronic beam adjustment (from the dashboard) you'll have to do without it." Contours didn't come with electric adjusters.

I'm still kinda skeptical unless they're pre-ordering them or customizing the Mondeo set.

I'm going to ask them about it and see how they respond...

They have a post on another site, forget which one but I ran across it. They are just taking orders and you'll be put on a list so that when they do begin releasing them for sale you'll already be in line with a set ordered.

Noobie...stop posting in this thread. You have no clue what you are talking about. I don't care how legit it sounds...there is a reason they are building CONTOUR specific headlights.

I was just here to tell you that after 2 threads with 30 plus pages of replies you aren't giving us any new information. Just because you are older than I am does not mean more knowledgable. Judging by your last response I would've fig'd you to be 17.

i'm not here to argue with you,obviously by the response of some others my post was new info.i thought it would also help people get an idea of what the morrettes would be sold for.your response(newbie) though reminded me of high school(freshman/senior crap).i find these forums to be a great help and it shouldn't matter how many times i've posted or how long i've been registered.just trying to help, no one had posted that website with contour morrettes being sold before (i don't think) and i think were all excited about getting these.

Morettes have been discussed to death in CEG. The only ones that matter are the ones the Mikey is involved with. Sounds like this other outfit is just trying to jump on the band wagon. The only Morette we need to be concerned with is the company that Mike initiated a dialogue with, who flew from France to his house for the initial fitting, who has fitted 2 prototypes thus far, and who is following through with this. They aren't offering to sell you something that's not even ready to market. They're let us know through Mike when it's ready to sell and fit our cars.

Any general idea when they might be released? I know this is the obvious question we all want to know, but can morette at least give a guesstimate? Next month? 5 years from now?

I'm just asking because my stockies are shot, and I'd wait a month for these if I had any idea. Otherwise, I'll just shell out the cash for new stocks.

Hey go pick yourself up the following:

600 grit sand paper
800 grit sand paper
1000 grit sand paper
1500 grit sand paper
2000 grit sand paper
3M plastic polish
rags

and your "stockies" will have renewed life saving you $280 (unless of course they are litterly cracked or busted up)

I just did mine they look brand new. Plus I believe there is a how-to on this site as well.

Yea, its beyond a good buffing.. Besides the normal yellowing, almost all the mounting tabs are broken, and they've got a rainforest of condensation inside.

I hope Morette use stronger plastic and/or metal tabs on their lights.

I specifically brought that up with the guys from Morette France when they were here a few months ago. They promised that they had taken that into consideration and that the plastic they were using around the mounting tabs would be much more flexible and giving and should not break.

morette has just released the price for the srt-4 morettes. the srt-4 lights were being developed at the same time as ours but their production moved ahead of the contours when they found an srt-4 in europe to do the testing on.

the price for the srt lights is $495. this price has nothing to do with our lights i just wanted to show what neighborhood our lights might be in. again, this is the price for the srt lights not the contour lights.

They are as far along as Mike has told us. He's been updating us the second he hears news from Morette, so it looks like there's nothing new on them. Definitely a lot of people keeping their fingers crossed though in anticipation of these!

the poster from sema featuring my car.
as far as an update on the lights, morette test fit a pair of lights on a contour to iron out what needs to be done to make the lights perfect. they were in the states for ythe sema show and got a beeter look then the pics i provided them so another update and a third prototype should be coming very soon.

if you want a copy of the poster file pictured above which is 25"x35" to print out at your local print shop drop me a PM.

I know I'm gonna get so much [censored] for this but...
That message is worth about 2 cents...I'd rather have a place tell me, it usually takes X amount of months, instead of saying soon, soon, real soon, watch our site, soon will be on the way. I mean, if its 3 months, say it. if its 6 months, say it. Regardless, I'll be picking up a pair. Now who will be the first to yell at me?

the info you have is the info i have. morette has put a lot of time and money into developing these lights. the president of the company and the lead tech flew here from france to get this project off the ground. then they returned and had a booth at sema in las vegas in november.

i dont know if you know how production works but products are not created overnight. it takes time and money and a DOT certification to get these lights ready for sale. morette is on their fourth contour prototype now to get the perfect fit and quality assurence that only morette provides its customers with. i am in contact with morette usa and communicating with them weekly. please show some patience and understanding to how the process works and be thankful that they are making us lights.

IIRC, the ones Mike had at the EOSB was the second prototype, so now if they're on the fourth, things are moving along well. Not fast enough , but since we're getting something we've all been wanting ever since I can remember (over 2 1/2 years), we still need to be patient, especially with the one who got the whole thing started, hand Mikey.

Just think... if it wasn't a CEG'er who was testing the prototypes, you might not even know about the lights until they're released. The problem is we knew from the start of the process, so the wait seems long.

#1151969 (Re: The Five-Oh!) 01/22/06 04:32 AM

I don't know if it was the angle (of the shot) or just the difference in the 4 prototype pictures but some pics look like the sides of the lights don't fit in with the contour of the Contour (no pun intended)... On the latest poster posted (still no pun intended) bottom right hand corner they look like the fit is much better. Is that the angle (of the shot) or just improvement in design???
I hope that these fit nice and flush and define every curve of my CSVT, kind of like a pair of mid 80's spandex shorts! (Not on me of course...)

Oh okay I see... That's what I get for reading the post from the middle down... This forum is Text Book Thick!

I'm ready for my pair! I don't know if you guys seen anything but I've been searching the web for modified lights for the tour forever! I was about two seconds from modding my own like everyone else (until I read this forum in it's entirety now I gotta have these!). I guess that the Civic, Jetta, Focus, Accord and Integra are the haves and us poor Contour owners are the have nots! I think that it sucks. The Contour/Mystique are some of the best kept secrets on the market! CSVT+family with children= affordable but invaluable sports car (with space) & cure for the common mid life crisis...

Ok, so Mike decided that it might speed things up if they were able to test fit the latest prototypes on a Contour already in Europe, so he got ahold of me to see if I wanted to do it.

And I was like "he1l no, morette=teh gay, i like my stok lites w HID walmart bulb lol!!!11"

No seriously, why would I pass something like that up? Hell yeah I said I would.

So anyway, I've emailed them to set up a meeting place.

Hope all goes well!
