Morimoto H11 Elite HID System

Verified & Secured


Renowned: The Morimoto Elite Systems have earned their reputation amongst many as the aftermarket's best set of HID's. We urge you to check out the specs below, Read the Reviews and then ask yourself whether your ability to see well while driving at night is worth saving a couple bucks?

HID Ballasts: The all new Morimoto XB Ballasts feature relocated igniters like OEM units, putting them far closer to the HID bulb. The lack of high voltage transmitted through wiring drastically reduces EMI/RFI (radio interference). Total system reliability is also improved by shielding the main circuit board from the static produced by these high voltage bursts on start up. (not to mention they're damn good looking!)

HID Bulbs: The Morimoto H11 HID bulbs feature ceramic bases for precise alignment giving you a clean beam pattern. Quartz glass tubes to minimize UV output and maximize luminosity. Their Praxair (US) metal halide salts produce very accurate color temperatures in the 3K, 4K, 5K, and 6K range.

PLEASE NOTE: Currently, the 3Five bulbs are "H11" base whereas XB are "H11B". We can confirm fitment on most newer Japanese vehicles as needing H11B, and most Hyundai/Kia vehicles as needing "H11A" despite what the bulb itself may state. The difference in the two bases is not wiring, but the location of the ceramic-coated return wire outside the glass capsule. It is 180-degrees opposite between the two bulbs in comparison to the base's three tabs and thus it is vital to use the proper type for your projectors. Reflector housings will not require a specific base, and can use either. If you are unsure, please confirm with us prior to ordering!

Wiring: The Morimoto HD Relay Harness features an all-new completely sealed double 40A Relays, 14 gauge stranded copper wire wrapped in durable black tech-flex mesh that looks like a factory harness once installed. No cutting or splicing here: there are only five connections and they're all plug-n-play.

Canbus Compatible: The optional Standalone Canbus harness substitute is recommended for European vehicles that display "bulb out" error messsages. They contain a series of capacitors and resistors to trick the car into thinking nothing has changed and help you avoid annoying lamp-out warnings on the dash.

Backed Up: Let's not forget the 5-year warranty on the entire kit*. The Elite system is designed to run for 2500 hours, so that's what it's guaranteed for. Don't buy into empty promises from other shops offering BS "lifetime" warranties. No HID's will last you a lifetime, and if you think that company will be around long enough or even pick up the phone when you have a problem, guess again).[*XB55 kits have 3 year warranty]

Best of The Best

I first purchased the xentec hid kit from ebay, for 30 bucks. i regret it, the 6k looked more like a 10k . Then i Got trs kit for my 2013 Camry Se, ordered a 4500. Then I saw how good the 5500k looked I called, and they were able to swap out the bulbs for me. And still had 2 day shipping. Quality is waaaaaay better than ebay. You get what you pay for. Thanks TRS!

Great for 2014+ Mazda3

I purchased a set of these for my 2014 Mazda3 and they are simply plug and play. Just remove the old bulbs from the projector, mount the ballasts and relay them hook everything up. It was that easy. I love that these match the XB Head Light LEDs I just bought as well :)

Say goodbye to crappy halogens!

I installed the H11 kit with 6000k XB35s on my 2015 Toyota Camry SE (with the stock halogen projectors). The beam pattern is simply perfect - laser-like cutoff and really uniform light distribution. The 6000k bulbs shine a milky white with maybe ~20% light blue tint - point is, it looks OEM. The bulbs fire up very rapidly when warm, and only slightly slower when cold. The wiring itself was simple, but the Camry is nearly devoid of good places to put the harness and fuses. I ended up using zip ties to secure my driver's-side ballast and fuses next to the battery, and used zip ties on the passenger side to secure the ballast behind the headlight.

Overall, amazing kit, really easy installation, and gives the front end the lighting it should have had from the factory. I did not remove either headlight, or any shrouds/bumper parts to do this. When it gets warm, I will revisit the wiring situation.

The Greatest Investment :)

after lots of researches this is the place where i decided to buy the HIDs for my new 2014 Honda Accord EX. I do a lot of driving in the evenings and at night time so i needed a better view on the road; regardless is making the eye a bit more relaxed with more light/visibility. Finding out what HID system is easy through TRS website. As soon as i received the HID system, i read the instructions which honestly where easy to understand. Under the hood of the Accord there is plenty of space to work on, everything was easy to install get the cables from one side to other side, zip tied the ballasts and the cables & connected them according to the scheme provided. Did all my self no help it took me maybe 1h 30 min just cuz i wanted to be careful and doubled checked everything before connecting to the battery power (+).
I did run the headlights to make sure then work on a day time is hard to see but then when i drove at night i felt the difference of the 50 w ballasts and the XB35 6000K that gives an output image with a lot of light intensity on the road. I was impressed by the TRS product. I am glad for investing money in this Product. A pleasure to drive at night and evenings, peace of mind with TRS. And also to mention that even on a foggy night/early morning e got more visibilty then with the stock bulbs, even the fog lights on don't make a difference with H11 system i got from TRS. Thanks TRS ! Well Done :)

Best Quality HID Kit

Bought this for my wife's 2015 Honda crv touring. She absolutely loves it. This system has amazing light output. No issues with flickering or cutting on or off. She leaves her head lights on auto and works amazing. I would recommend upgrading the bulb to the xb35 so you have no shadow in your light pattern. Yes its more than other systems but you get what you pay for. Morimoto elite is the best brand out and you won't be disappointed.

H11 HID Kit

Hello TRS and potential buyers.
I bought the H11 Morimoto system with the xb35 bulbs with kelvin temp. 5500K (35w ballast). I was debating between the xenon depot and these ones and I am happy I went with these. They are perfect and exactly what I was looking for in a HID kit and the color is spot on. Very white with slight hint of blue. I have never installed HID's but after finding my mounting points install was a breeze. Also want to thank Jamielle for helping pick out this kit. I would post pics but I'm not sure how to do it on here or if its possible. Very high quality products, if your debating o HID's BUY these, you will not regret it. THANKS TRS.

Not cheap but well worth the money

I decided to upgrade the headlights on my 2013 Prius. With the stock projectors, all I need is a set of H11 HID system with 4300k because I like the stock HID look for that color temp. Upon the arrival of the package, I can tell the quality of the material from the wires to the ballast. Everything is direct plug and play and after 30 minutes of DIY and the detail instructions from the website, I figured it out easily. With the OEM projectors, my prius shine brighter lights on the road with an OEM HID look. I feel more confidence driving at night with the clear beam cutoff just like the Acuras.

Best HID Set I have ever purchased.

I have bought low buck cheap xentec HID's before and they were god awful and I tried to steer clear of HID's. But I bought these for my buddies 2013 Honda Accord Coupe and they come with stock projectors in the headlights but with halogen bulbs. So we changed that. I bought the 6000k XB35 series bulb and boy is this thing bright. We compared it to our other buddies 2012 Mustang GT C/S with OEM Ford HID's probably around 4300-4500K and these looked so much better and more crisp and overall were just way more powerful. The one thing I will say though is that there was a little bit of flickering from the driver side bulb on the first few startups but after a drive and using the bulbs for a long period of time, that went away. I'm sure these will wear in nicely but my friend is definitely satisfied with them and so am I. I will never buy HID's From anywhere else.

Great Product, GREAT SERVICE

My H11 XB35 bulbs exceeded my expectations in every way. The light output is amazing and the 5000k is perfect for night and heavy rain. TRS rep on the chat feature was very informative and helped me to pick out a kit that fit my car and my needs best. Also, the kit is as easy to install as plug and play. It only takes a little longer if you want to make the installation discreet and OEM. If you are looking for a great quality HID kit, look no further! This is what you want!

I can finally see in the dark!

I bought the 6000k 35W XB35 HID kit and this is by far the best money I've spent on my car (2014 Mazda3). I would definitely recommend this to other people.

Only thing that would make it perfect would be better instructional guides and a better instructional video (also, the link to the video doesn't work on this site but you can find the videos on youtube). Only thing that was particularly useful was the wiring diagram. It would probably have taken me significantly less time if there were better instructions and explanations! Other than that, don't let the price frighten you away!

Simply the best bang for the buck HID System

Just finished the installation of the H11 Morimoto Elite HID System on my 2014 Mazda 3. WOW, what an upgrade to the standard halogen headlights! The system was very easy to install although I took my time and it was the first HID system I've ever installed. The combination of the 35w 35DSP ballasts and XB35 4300K bulbs are a perfect balance to the light output I was after. I hope the system will stand the test of time. I'm a happy customer so far.

Easy Install. Tremendous Quality. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!

Just finished installing my H11: Morimoto Elite HID System in my 2014 Acura ILX.

My headlights are internally wired, so I needed to cut a hole into the headlight caps, but that was the only part that wasn't fully plug and play. Also, the pieces that are incorporated into the bulb wiring make them sit so flush in the holes I made in the headlight caps.

Mounting was a breeze, I was able to use only the factory grounds in the car, and the ballasts were slim enough to tuck away perfectly.

The wire harnesses of the HD Relay matched my factory wiring, and I was able to tie them to the factory harnesses to keep that completely OEM look. Anybody that isn't specifically looking for aftermarket accessories won't be able to tell that these HIDs didn't come with the car.

As a bonus, the relays on the HD Relay Harness came completely blacked out, and where they're mounted between the battery and the fuse box make them look perfectly factory.

As far as the light goes, the cutoff is exactly the same as my factory headlights, but the output is tremendously better. I went with the 5000K, pure-white look, and I could not be happier. The light shows through the projector so beautifully, it's as if they were built for HIDs to begin with.

Kudos, TRS, you were not lying when you say that this kit is the premier kit.

If you're looking for HIDs, get off of eBay, get off of Amazon, and order your kit from TRS right now. The slightly extra cost as compared to the cheapo kits is more than justified by the quality, performance, appearance, and warranty that you get from TRS.

I'm stoked!

Easy install, so far so good!

Just finished installing this in my 2014 Accord. The ballast are small enough that you shouldn't have much issue finding a place to mount them (even in the cramped engine compartments of modern vehicles). The connections were solid and fool-proof. Seems like much higher quality than the $80 dollar kits you can get, you get what you pay for.

Overall, the quality seems really good so far, fast warm-ups and excellent light. Check to see if you need the XB for the bottom return wire (Accord does) so you don't get a shadow based on where the return wire is.

Will try to follow up in a few months to see how these are holding up! Would recommend based on experience so far!

So Far, Excellent!

Bought this kit for my 2008 Lincoln MKX. The car came with adaptive projector headlights, but Lincoln cheaped-out and stuck in halogens, which did not put much light on the road at all. Bought this H11 kit with 4300k XB35 bulbs (which are the correct bulbs for these headlights - no return wire shadow). TRS customer service was great answering my questions pre-purchase, as I was concerned with issued I had read on the forums which had to with PWM on the headlight circuit. TRS recommended that I use their Mopar relay harness, as it includes a capacitor to absorb /smooth out pulses on the circuit. Everything works great. It was super easy to hook up. The thing that takes the longest is taking off the front fender of the car and figuring out where to mount everything so it is out of the way. The modern engine bay is so crammed full of stuff it can take some time and patience to find a good spot to mount your HID hardware and run your harness wiring to get a clean-looking install. The kit fired up on the first try and I haven't had any issues at all since I installed about a month ago. The light output is fantastic - much, much better that the stock halogens. Another satisfied TRS customer here.

This system is outstanding! I just installed it my 2013 Fusion, and the performance is leaps and bounds above any HID kit I have owned before. I contacted TRS and had a custom order set up based on their expertise around the Fusion's picky headlight system. It consisted of a wiring harness, a single Can-bus harness (installed between the stock wiring and the relay harness), the 35w ballasts, and the XB35 5000k bulbs. It was incredibly easy to install once the bumper was taken off. The bulbs install with the return wire facing the bottom of the projector, eliminating any shadow in the output. You can see examples of people having problems with this on multiple forums. If you want a top notch PnP system that is more then acceptable, without a complete retrofit, TRS system above is the way to go. I hope this helps a lot of people.

I took the hit by ordering the 4300K XB35 H11 50w hids. I know everything about hids and retrofits and i got nervous in case this would melt my housings. I got the shipment a little late but that was ups fault not trs. People wonder if the steroid version h11 bulbs are worth it, they think only the wires are different color but hell no. When i took these out of the box i thought there were d2s bulbs untill i saw the base, I put them in and boy there is a big difference. Way better spread out output, its a good thing the burner was facing the bottom of the headlight because it reduces glare, but with these bulbs for some odd reason i have absolutely NO glare. I had to no matter get 4300l because other kelvins make me lose my beam pattern which puts out more glare then light infront of me. Thanks for lighting up my roads and not my signs trs!

The h11 bulbs are so dim, now the lights are brighter but the oem projectors aren't that great but that's Nissan's issue not TRS/Morimoto. The ballasts feel SOLID, that's what immediately jumped out to me, their construction. Warm up time is about the same as other aftermarket kits. They are incredibly silent too. For whatever reason I needed to run the HD harness because without them the ballasts would not fire. Not sure if the ballast require it or if the Altima's electrical system simply doesn't supply the initial power to turn them on.

If you are looking for a true 4300K hid kit equivalent to the BMW, Mercedes and Lexus xenons look no further. The Retrofit source is the place you want to buy high quality kits unlike them cheap Chinese hids you see on ebay and online claiming 4300K kelvin but you get cheesy blue color.

The old saying "you get what you paid for" is often understated and forgotten, especially in the world of HID lighting. Like others have stated, I have bought numerous cheap HID kits that had very poor color rendition and brightness. My last set of HID lights was supposed to be 5000K in color, but when I got them they were closer to 8000K. In addition the bulbs were so poorly fitted and made that when I turned them on, the lighting was so uneven that I switched back to my standard halogens. However I'm so glad that I found the retrofit source. Yes the kits are more expensive than the cheap ebay ones, but they are so worth it. Upon opening the box, the HID kit oozes of quality. Everything felt substantial and well engineered unlike the cheap kits in which felt like something cobbled up with scraps on the floor. It took about an hour to install the lights in my truck, but when I switched on the lights, I was blown away. At last, I finally got an HID kit that was truly 5000k and not some cheap imitation. The quality of this kit can be seen through the light output and the clean beam patterns. Unlike my last set in which had uneven lighting, this was very uniform and bright.
I am so impressed with the quality of this kit that I already know that a projector retrofit from TRS in is my future.

For those who were hesitant to purchase a $150 kit when alternatives from China (DDM, VVME) were available for 1/2 the price. Take it from me, it was worth it. I have owned both DDM Raptor and VVME kits and found them worthwhile for about a week and then you can see the quality deteriorate. The bulbs dim and change colors. These Morimoto bulbs look and feel of better quality, and the ballast look like something off of NASA's space engineering program. Well worth the purchase!!!

The first time I received my order, I noticed that I ordered the wrong wrong bulb and relay. Called up TRS on the 22nd of Jan. and received the correct size on the 25th. I think it would quicker if the bulb was not on back order.

I’m so impressed with the feel of the whole kit. The length and width of the ballast is almost the same as a credit card. I compare the feel to the Iphone 4S. It’s compact but it has a mass to it. The picture of the ballast in the website doesn’t do it justice. Also, I love the color of the ballast. It came in blue.

The HID output is great. I decided to get the 4300K. I can see so much better when driving.

The installation was easy. It took me about 30 min. The longest part of the install is picking the places to mount the ballast and cubes of the relay. I mounted the ballast with a 3M outdoor double sided tape. According to packaging it can hold up to 20 pounds. For the cube, I bought a crown bolt, washer and nut to mount it correctly according to the website instruction. The only problem I encountered was the polarity of the wire.

I hope the quality of the whole kit is the same as the feel of kit. I haven’t seen anyone else post how long the kit last. If all goes well I gonna buy retrofit in about a year and update my post.

Thanks TRS for the great customer service!

Ok guys, I HAVE been through HID hell and back and let me tell you over the past year I have invested $400+ in crappy kits from ebay and even local "shops" in Portland, Oregon that claim to be legit.

First like everyone, I sought out the cheap ebay Xentec kit. One word about Xentec.. Absolute garbage! They have two types of DC systems and besides the VERY short life of their bulbs, they sell ballasts that never fully warm up. So my visibility was very limited. My 6000k looked like a dingy blue.

So then, I tried some local shops that even installed for free. They sold kits that had what felt like heavy duty ballasts. They took forever to start up.. In the end, i returned to the "shop" over 3 times within 2 years. Then i looked on Craigslist and found these local sellers of HID systems for only $60!! I thought wow, these must be better right? They were the same exact quality as the Xentec kits. Nobody could give me a brand name!

All the above kits were made by someone so proud of their product that they felt a name shouldn't be included. (Probably for reviews like this) Almost all of the sellers told me that HIDs come from the same manufacturer. NOT true. Oh, on top of all this ... none of the HID kits were sold with a relay harness. When I bought one my self, it couldn't ground correctly.

Problems I had(before TRS):
- VERY slow start up.
- Never fully getting to 35W 6000k looked like 10,000k
- Having to re-turn on my lights to get both of them to fire up on both sides.
- Bulbs burning out too quickly.
- Alignment issues with my lights being all over the road. ( Very Unsafe to other drivers)
- Playing the parking lot guessing game if the lights are on both sides. Driving too close to another vehicle sometimes just to see a reflection.
- Flickering once fully warmed up.

So, now I buy the TRS Morimoto Elite System...
Let me tell you I couldn't be more happier. This system has dual relays with power out indicators on the relays. The materials are thick and tough.

I bought 6000k and installed them in my 2011 Nissan Altima with stock non-projector housings. Now, when I installed the other kits from above listed, None of them even aligned correctly to come close to what cutoff I had from the stock halogens. Let me tell you, The Morimoto's even without projectors installed due to there perfect alignment looked just like the stock cutoff. This is the first kit to actually do this!

This impressed me alone in itself. So, I thought I might have warm-up issues or one side firing on faster than the other? Nope! These systems are absolutely TOP NOTCH! Even in 28* Morning weather, these lights don't take long to fire up at all. You can hear the clicking of the relays and my light output is only 35 Watts but 6000k looks like true white light with a tiny hint of blue/purple. But here's the law in Oregon anyways, if your pulled over by police they have one test that they administer. Your lights could be any color except true deep blue. But, if they pull out a piece of white paper and ANY other color but white reflects back your going to get a hefty ticket.

Point is this, if you want to keep dumping money into your lighting and never truly get anywhere .. stick to buying from ebay, amazon your local shops that meet you in parking lots from craigslist.
If your looking for excellent build quality, excellent support and an amazing warranty buy this kit from TRS. You can't go wrong. I am a customer for life now. I am spreading the word about your products to anyone looking to upgrade their lighting. Solid company and VERY cool people that DO know what they are talking about.

I guess it's not hard to see why EVERYONE recommends TheRetrofitSource.

After about half a dozen attempt at making one of the supposed "plug and play" H11B kits work on my 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo, I finally gave up and returned the kit and bought a TRS H11 kit, despite the unknown of whether or not the H11 kit would work in an H11B socket. In the end, the amount of money spent trying to make the "other" kit work ended up costing about the same had I just bought the TRS Morimoto kit to start. I'm not going to go into detail as to what went wrong with the other kit, but the end result was the kit, plus extra for harness, then having to buy new relays, and add a resistor and capacitor just to make it work, and it was still playing havoc with the car's electronics...SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT A TRS KIT IN THE FIRST PLACE.

For those looking at any of the new Kia/Hyundai with H11B bulbs in the low beam projectors, just to let you all know, the H11 kit from TRS fits perfectly. I went with the stand-alone CANbus harness and everything works and works well on the very first try, and there are no additional harnesses that's visible from the engine bay and almost zero signs of alterations. Best of all, there are NO RETURN WIRE SHADOWS! Truly plug and play, with very accurate light color, unlike the typical sub $100 kits you'd get, where the 4300 K, 5000K, and 6000K bulbs all look the same with a heavy dose of blue tint.

I'm so happy with the purchase I'm contemplating surprising my wife with a full HID upgrade for her 2011 Hyundai Tucson from TRS.

After wasting my time and money with cheap, under-quality HID kits, I was referred to by a friend to purchase my H11 kit with relay harness from The Retrofit Source. Customer service is exceptional, they shipped quick, installation was quick and painless and I am extremely happy with the quality of the kit and and the output and performance. Will recommend to anyone looking to retrofit and will definitely return in the future.

I purchased the H11 Elite Kit for my 2010 Camry LE and I couldn't be more happier. This kit is a huge upgrade from stock and the light output is amazing. It is definitely worth the money. The quality is top notch and shipping was very quick. I printed off a copy of the instructions which made installation a breeze. These things are built to last. Thanks I'm glad I ran across this website!

Purchased the 3Five 4300k kit for my 2012 ct200h to replace those nasty halogen's and I gotta say that it is money well spent! I was considering this over a set of McCulloch's but I'm glad I went with the Morimoto's. The quality of the light is good. My installer was surprised at how much extra lenth there was from the ballast to the bulb. The warranty on these bulbs is rad compared to McCulloch's 2 year warranty. I researched what HID kit to go with and I was tempted to go with another brands cheaper $60 kit but I read some many problems with those kits and misfiring that I decided that you get what you pay for so I went ahead and took the dive to get this and wouldn't regret it. I would highly recommend these to anybody looking to upgrade their lights to HID's. I'm considering upgrading my fogs to the 3000k kit too and will buy it from TRS once I decide to take the jump.

I've purchased the H11 Elite Kit for my 07 4Runner. The kit arrived quickly. Very well built, harness was definitely top notched and well put together. It would have been great if you guys included few minor instructions because I was a little confused with extra wirings/pigtails that I wasn't sure where they are supposed to go, turned out I didn't need them. Other than that, the kit was as advertised and expected. I highly recommend it. However, one thing I wish it was different is for the H11 bulbs to have the return wire on the bottom instead of being on top to minimize the shadow effect. Customer service was on point and helpful. Overall, I'm a happy camper. TRS is legit.

I purchased two $30 Xentec kits from ebay for my old car (low beam and high beam) and boy was I dissapointed!!! The ballasts were cheap looking, didnt come with a mounting bracket, and they flickered from day one. I didnt want to make the same mistake twice, so I purchased the H11 Elite kit. Even though I spent more money, I didnt regret it. Delivery was fast, and the customer service was excellent. The heavy duty relay was a little tricky, but once we figured it out, everything hooked up smoothly. The light output is amazing... nice cut off, and no flickering,I would definitely recommend this kit. No more ebay kits for me!!!

I bought this H11 kit last week, installed them that day. That night i was so impressed! I don't typically write reviews unless i'm angry with the product but in this case I am so impressed i had to! I'm pretty sure we have all try'd the cheaper kit's from around the internet, trust when i say save up your money and buy your kit's from TRS. It will save you so much stuff of poor lighting and feeling like you got ripped off! I'll be a customer and salesman for anyone looking for quality product! Thank you guys for giving me hope that not every place on the internet is out for money over pleasing customers. Thank you again and i will certainly be a returning customer!

I purchased this kit (4300k) with the heavy duty relay harness for my 2010 Prius, and I am pleased to say everything clicked together and fired right up just like it should. The output from these bulbs and ballasts does not disappoint. I was please to find that the output characteristics from my OEM projectors were not significantly altered and the beam quality remains acceptable.

I liked the LED inside the cube relays - it's a nice troubleshooting aid to help trace a problem should one arise.

The wire harness is incredibly stout, and it may be possible using mil-spec wire and expandable sleeving to cut down on the bulk a little bit, but I found the lengths were excellent for being a general application harness. I had plenty of wire to reach where i needed it to go.

I chose not to use the included bulb seals, but instead transferred the seals from my old halogen bulbs. This made the installation go considerably smoother as I did not have to wrench on the bulbs to get them to seat. I could feel the seals grab, and the bulbs passed the wiggle test.

On the customer service side of things, I exchanged a few emails with Andrew, and I have to say I am very pleased to have another excellent experience with this company. I can't help but wonder what they put in their coffee to make them so excited about their work and so eager to help - but it does just that. Shipping went extremely fast and everything arrived in good condition.

In closing, I'll say that you *could* buy a cheap kit for a fraction of this price - but for the quality of the product and the confidence I have that I've got somebody who will pick up the phone and help me out if I have a problem - I would, and probably will pay the difference again.

I got this kit then was able to contact Matt and Andrew and the communication was very fast and excellent service!!
So I wanted to switch to 50w instead of 35w ballast they were able to do a special order for me on and was excellent!!
The ballast looks like it was very well made and excellent quality! Still waiting on to get dark and see how bright these are! I'm sure it will be brighter than other companies!

I ordered the HID Elite Kit with the Morimoto 3Five ballasts from Andrew for my 2011 Lexus CT200h. I couldn't be happier with the kit, the service and how easy they were to install. I have seen a lot of the Hondas, Scions and Nissans on the road with the cheap kits whose lights look purple or blind you due to cheap components used. This kit makes my Lexus lights look like they came with factory HID lights although they were not an offered option for my car. They are not the cheapest HID kit out there but based on their reputation that I have checked out...the kit sold by Retrofit Source seems to be a quality built product and if you have any questions after the sale---at least you know there are people you can call for advice or help. Thank you RS for taking something that seemed complex to me at first (choosing the right components) and making it an easy task. I will highly recommend you to anyone I know who is looking to do a similar upgrade.

TRS has the only H11 bulbs that are built correctly as to not give the 6 o'clock rod shadow I was experiencing with other lesser HID bulbs. They also have a much better and distinct cut off then any other bulbs I've tried.
