[ In Stock: 0 pieces ]
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: Designed in California by Morimoto's engineer, Yoshi Ishida, the Morimoto XB 2.0 HID Ballasts are just as good looking on the outside as they are well-engineered on the inside. They are available in both 35w and 50w versions, use proprietary software by the pros at Hylux paired with packaging perfection from the masters at Morimoto. This is today's most modern iteration of a model that has sold more than half a million units since inception, and we don't think it can really get any better!
XB HID Bulbs: Homegrown by Morimoto to out-perform any alternatives on the market when installed in fog lights--and it shows. We admit the latest generation XB HID 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 lumin Osity (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.
Wire Harness: As one of the most important parts in any HID lighting upgrade; don't skimp out when it comes to your wiring. It doesn't matter how good your ballasts are. How good your bulbs are. If your harness is a piece of crap, when it gives out your fog lights are gonzo. Morimoto's harnesses are the best on the market and easily worth their premium price compared to cheaper alternatives. No matter which one is right for your application, the harness features triple-sealed central relay packs, 14ga stranded copper wiring, over-molded fittings, and plug-n-play functionality. This will ensure everything properly (and permanently) works with your vehicle's original in-cabin controls.
Optional Canbus Harnesses: Instead of a traditional relayed harness that draws power from the battery, Morimoto's Standalone Canbus harnesses use two individual sub-harnesses to keep a load on the factory wiring. 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. We generally recommend them for use on most modern European applications instead of normal harnesses since they do a great job at providing stable power to the ballasts and canceling any warnings.
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 places offering BS "lifetime" warranties. Nothing lasts forever, and if you think "the other guy" will be there to pick up the phone or even stay in business long enough to assist you when there's a problem; guess again! [*XB55 880 HID kits have a 3 year warranty]
User-Approved: By satisfied enthusiasts with all kinds of cars and trucks. With a quick and easy search we pulled up install examples (1,2,3,4,5,6) that span several generations of the Elite HID systems! If you haven't made a decision just yet, keep reading!

Car guys world-wide know that TRS carries the internet's best selection of high performance automotive and powersport lighting products at the best prices, and we've got the best, most knowledgeable team of real enthusiasts to help back it up.

Night and Day!
I bought a set of these in 6000k for my 2001 ford focus Zts... The light output over the stock bulbs is a night and day difference... Can clearly see a much wider angle with this kit in my fog lights. One of the best after-market upgrades for my focus that I've ever purchased. Looking forward to installing my h1 kit in my aftermarket projector headlight housing that I've bought.
I purchased this kit almost a year ago but didn't install it till about 8 months ago. I went to get it professionally installed since it is a little different than other cheaper kits and it turned out one side would turn on after I pressed my fog light button on and off twice, firing up the second time i turned on the kit. I contacted customer service and they were awesome!!!! Replaced my ballast, bulb, and even harness. The kit worked great for about 6-7mths til recently. That same side again has the same problem, I have to press it twice to get it to turn on. BUT I don't mind because they are AWESOMELY BRIGHT and are the first system that I think is truly 5K no blue at all!!! and they are brighter than a cheaper kit I have on my headlights ( I got the 35W 5K kit) That is the only reason why I didn't rate the kit 5stars and why I haven't changed my headlight kit to one of these. But customer service I rate 5 stars and Brightness 5 stars the kit itself I give like a 3.5-4ish just b/c it doesnt fire up the first time I press the button. I might contact customer service but I dont want to mess with the kit right now b/c the winter is upon us here in Chicago and I dont want to remove and add the kit again, like I said I don't mind pressing the button twice :^)
