H7: Morimoto Elite HID System

Verified & Secured

Description

Since their debut in 2011, the Morimoto Elite Systems have earned their reputation amongst many as the aftermarket's best HID kit. We urge you to check out their spec's below, Read the Reviews, Google "Morimoto Elite", and then decide for yourself. We're sure proud of it!



The 'Moto 3Five H7 bulbs feature: Ceramic bases for precise alignment giving you a clean beam pattern. Quartz glass tubes to minimize UV output and maximizing luminosity. Their Praxair (US) metal halide salts produce very accurate color temperatures (3K/4.3K/5K/6K)



The 'Moto ballasts feature: Compact, clutter-free design with integrated igniters. Completely weatherproof body & potted internals. Braided tech-flex insulated high voltage line enhances durability and looks, the interior lining prevents EMI interference. Laser etched graphics, aluminum fittings & mounting hardware. "DSP" (Digital Signal Processing) and 23KV Siemens Igniter greatly enhances bulb warm-up speed, now comes standard as of January 2014.



The 'Moto Heavy Duty Relay Wire harness features: All new completely sealed dual 40A Relay set, 14 gauge stranded copper wire protected by durable black tech-flex mesh looks like a factory harness when installed. Designed to be completely plug n play. (another new standard for 2014)



The optional Standalone Can-Bus harness replaces the relayed battery harness with two individual sub harnesses. Recommended for vehicles that recognize when a bulb is out, these contain a series of capacitors and resistors to trick the car into thinking nothing has changed and help you avoid annoying "bulb out" warnings. Great for many modern Euro applications



Let's not forget the 5-year warranty on the entire kit (3-year on a 5Five kit). The Morimoto Elite system is designed to run for 2500 hours, so that's what it's guaranteed for. Don't let vendors with their BS "lifetime" warranties fool you into thinking you're buying something well-made with that lame excuse. (no HID's will last you a lifetime, and if you think that company will be around forever anyways let alone pick up the phone when you have a problem, think again).



Buy from the company with the Internet's best reputation for unbeatable prices and killer customer service. The Retrofit Source Inc. is trusted by car guys world-wide, so we invite you to contact us today with your questions.

Awesome kit

I am very happy with the 3Five kit with CAN-Bus connector kit for my 2010 VW Passat. The OEM halogens were terrible on dark roads. I added this HID kit with 5000k bulbs and the road is lit much better than before. Because of the projector lenses, they don't reach any further, but what is illuminated is brighter and better illumination of the ditch. I upgraded my high beams to SilverStar Ultras because if I need to flash my high beams, the HIDs won't come on quickly enough. I am fortunate, that VW allows high and low beams to illuminate at the same time. I get good distance with the SilverStars and the 3Fives keep the near road clearly illuminated.

Installation was quite easy as well. I had to cut a notch in the retaining ring that holds the metal tension ring in place. I had to do this to slip the bulb's wire harness through as the hole in the bottom was way too small to pass the connectors. Doing so, did not significantly weaken the ring. I used the edge of a file to make the notch. It took some time, but was worth the wait as I didn't rush and break anything. I mounted the ballast to the sheet metal on the driver's size and to the motor mount on the passenger side.

Well designed and made kit with good performance. Worth the money.

VERY PLEASED!

So I purchased this kit about a week ago and immediately after opening I knew my 200 was well spent the quality of this kit is amazing just the wiring harness alone was amazing. I installed it all today 2/8/14 and it took just under two hours (I went all out in terms of doing it correct and took off the bumper/headlights) for my 2011 Hyundai Sonata I ran all the wires appropriately protecting them and making sure it was as clean of an install as possible. I decided to get the XB35 bulbs with the 5five ballasts and when I spoke with the sales rep he suggested a .5 can bus setup which basically connects to the wiring harness and the original connector with the ballasts running of the relay harness. Everything works perfectly! and they are EXTREMELY BRIGHT!!! i have had two other cheap ebay kits prior and will never go back and am glad i just spent the money. The only thing I am not a fan of is when I shut the lights of the driver side turns off about a .5 second sooner than the passenger which is of course due to the relay harness delaying the effect for the passenger because the power still remains in the extra cable. Not a terrible thing just a little unfortunate, but i can live with it knowing how high quality of a kit is under the hood.

Thrilled with my purchase!

Just installed the H7 Elite HID system, and I couldn't be happier. The Morimoto ballasts were backordered and delivery was a week late, but it was well worth it. The light looks incredible...crisp, clear and very (very) well defined. I opted for the XB35 bulbs and I honestly think they look better than some of the stock HIDs I see on the road. Would definitely recommend making the move to this system. I have an 07 Subaru Legacy and installation was straight forward...took about an hour and a half, but that's mostly because this is my first ever DIY installation!

Hello
I bought H7 MORIMOTO ELITE HID SYSTEM - 5000k - 35w , and after installation there was a flickering in both of the bulbs for 10 seconds and still until now flickering every time I turned my lights on.

The color amazing.
Good customer service.
Installation easy.
I have the flickering problem
Shipping fees too high + takes a long time to receive it.

This is the BEST HID LIGHT in the market. Its worth spending $150 for the Kit. I had used kits from ebay and the bulb or sometimes ballast kept blowing every 2-3 months. I have installed Morimotto H7 6000K and it produce bright and white little hint of blue. Friends you should purchase this kit. The ballast and bulbs are high quality plus the cables are nice and thick

I'm from Italy, I could buy a common HID kit sold here and receive it in 2 days. I tried and bought a Morimoto HID system instead, waited 10 days (we are talking of thousands of Km, custom's control etc..) and it was the right choise! Compared to common kit you can find here, this system looks like an OEM xenon! It reaches full luminosity much faster and is clearly brighter.
I needed just some adjustment to the base of the bulbs, but that's is my car's fault. Great material, exceptional customer service, the package was perfect, I have never seen a package so well protected! I will recommend you for sure!

I got it last week. Installation is easy, however it took me a while to figure out how to use original bulb holder to put it in place. Everything is so far so good. Recommended.

This is an amazing kit. I have had a couple previous experiences with HID kits (both purchased from eBay) and these simply blow them away. I got the 5000K and I love the color, they are just WHITE (diamond white), no yellow or blue tint to the light. I put them in my 2004 Mazda 3 which had stock halogens. I modified the cutoff and added the TRS Mazda 3" clear lenses with the provided spacers. The result: a great cutoff line with an amazing blue flicker. They look better than the OEM Mazda HIDs (and most other OEM as well). The relays are nice too, they illuminate with a red LED when on, however because of this the trigger leads (85 86) are not reversible, so some applications may have issues. The ballasts have a slight buzz to them while warming up but then are completely silent. They aren't small but they feel solid and well built. The wiring harness is top notch and will look great in your car - none of that cheap plastic wrap other kits use. Buy the TRS kit you won't be sorry.

POSITIVES: Probably the best aftermarket kit I’ve seen in a long time, high quality product, not cheap overseas crap, comparable to OEM kits for $1000 plus dollars..for only 150! 35W or 50W?, 35W is more than enough, my lows are blinding, the light output from this kit is really good. You keep seeing 50W kits all over the place and a lot of negative feedback of too much start up power required or fuses getting blown if relays are not used etc. (my opinion, if it works for you great, my point being if you get a high quality 35W kit you will not be dissatisfied and less stress on your electrical system) Color on the 5000K was great, super bright white with a lil blue/violet color on the edge of the beam patter (similar to MBenz/Lexus). The ballast, great (solid heavy duty construction with the ignitor/inverter included in one unit). Bulbs were plug and play with all equipment included and great tech support. The wire harness included is probably the beefiest one out there. 5 year warranty, pretty good considering the quality. I have seen lifetime warranties for the overseas cheap kits but….I get the idea you may get crap back in the mail or the companies that sell them will remove their ebay pages in the next 6 months.

Super Fast Shipping:Ordered the kit on Saturday morning and had it Monday, and he (Andrew) included a 5% military discount. Tech support is great, they always answer the phone on the first few rings (I had too many questions)

Negatives: With all good things of course there are negatives. TRS’s speciality is retrofitting cars and now that I know they are in the market I’ll use them on all of my autos. Anyways, the ballasts are bigger than your slim motorcycle ballasts I wanted to do my high and lows but there is no way I will be able to fit 2 more of their ballasts under my windscreen (If any has used another location please let me know). The ballasts are not huge by any means (much smaller than older ones I used on my car 5 years ago) but they are not credit card thin either. They are short but a few inches thick. They are ONE unit though ballast/ignitor/wiring all in one place not like the new digital or thin ballast that have another unit(ignitor/inverter) coming off of them and now I need to find to places to hide 2 things. They are also about 3 times heavier than a “good Ballast” that is currently on the market, which I feel goes to a testament that the quality is superb. Also waterproof. The 2 I fit behind my speedo were not hard to put back there. The wiring is also thick but again its not a cheap import.

The relay harness: Super beefy. Thats great but bike riders want/need small and those are opposites. You can fit the relay harness but you may have to spend a few minutes mod’ing it for the pass through or shortening some of the wires. It does fit though just a little bit of a pain. I ended up putting it on the shelf because I have not had any start up problems or flickering with my lights. (Not to insult anyone but the relay kit is ensuring the bulbs have good start up power to eliminate any power changes not to keep your bikes electrical from frying)……so I’ll continue to run it without until it is needed. Hope this helps. All in all I can’t say enough good things about this kit, super easy install, only real downside is if you wanted all 4 lights to be HID probably not going to happen (at least not easily). They also sent me corner daytime running LEDs that matched the 5000K for an extra 15 bucks. I used to drive with my OEM highs and lows on but the HID lows are already brighter than both together. Hope this helps.

In the end I couldn’t find a better kit out there for the money, and trust me I’ve been looking and buying HID kits…..for years

Just ordered and installed these and they are amazing. I have a perfect cutoff and no stray light. They throw very far without throwing into people's faces. Now I just need some clear lenses and I will be set. Order these and do it right. The nice thing about these is they are adaptable to a D2S bulb due to the standard AMP connector. They can be expanded to utilize one of TRS's full retrofits which I will be doing in the future.

One caveat about these ballasts: DO NOT USE THE MOUNTING BRACKETS. Mine were WAY off alignment with the mounting holes. The slot in the bracket did not get cut far enough and the holes were way too small for the provided screws. After I enlarged the holes and extending the slot, the provided screws proceeded to strip out the threads on the ballasts. Not a good time with that part of the project. Just use some 3M foam tape. I used molding tape and it worked out pleasantly. Clearly this bracket is not meant to be used. Foam tape should come with this instead of this crap bracket. I contemplated taking a star off for this but decided against it due to the performance of this kit.

I have tried only one other kit and it was a cheap one. Not even one hour of use, the ballast fails on the cheap kit and it blows out 3 fuses in an effort to determine whether it's the bulb or ballast. I said to myself, never again will I buy a cheap kit and even after discovering DDM reviews about how "good" they are for the price. I don't want "good" because we're talking about something you depend on while you're going however fast you're driving. It's like someone offering to sell you one lens for glasses or two. These are extremely bright and the quality is next to none. These weigh probably 3 times as much as your "good" HID kit which is a testament to their superior quality and no more generic stainless steel HID ballasts with stickers on them from the company they were sold from with the warnings and small printed words that leave you wondering how long they will last. If you want to ditch the companies trying to sell you a half-assed product, go with these. You won't regret it.

Great kit, bulb warmup time is comparable to factory hids. This will blow your ebay kit out of the water hands down. I had also purchased other kits which were nowhere near the quality of this kit, I will never purchase hids from anywhere else ever again.
