Easy Install Universal Retrofit Kit
Bi-Xenon: Morimoto Mini D2S Stage IIIB-RFK-MD2S
[ In Stock: pieces ]
Round Three: Based around the best performing Mini D2S projector to date, the Morimoto Mini D2S Stage III System features excellent performance at an accessible price. With all the parts options from their big brother bi-xenon projectors, but re-worked into a HID projector kit that's much easier to install; the Morimoto Mini D2S Projectors makes headlight performance more accessible to all.
Projector-Perfection: There are other projectors that produce brighter hot spots. There are other projectors that have unholy amounts of width, but no other option creates the perfect balance of width & hotspot lux (aka distance) quite like the 5.0. In order to create the ultimate weapon for driving in the dark, Morimoto baked in all of the best practices from a variety of well-respected OEM and aftermarket projectors. Their latest and greatest equates to the perfect all-around perfomer. While it's a big boost in the performance department, it's also clear they've paid attention to the details in the parts department too. New bulb holders & lock rings are icing on our projector pie!
Shrouds: Basically, they're the trim piece that adds the finishing touch to your new headlight retrofit. They cover the bi-xenon projector after it's installed to restore the factory-finished look inside the housings. With so many different shapes, sizes, and designs available; we really recommend picking one that suits the geometry inside of your headlights, and also your personal preference on how they look.
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!
D2S HID Bulbs: Homegrown by Morimoto to out-perform any alternatives on the market when installed in projector-based headlights--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.
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 headlights 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 bulb out warnings.
Optional LED Halos: Though LED halos may not be for everybody, if you're looking for the cleanest, most simple, most reliable setup, we highly recommend the Profile Performance Pivot Halos. Not only are they the brightest, most uniformly lit halos currently on the market, but they double as a switchback turn signal with your blinker circuit. The integrated controllers are extremely easy to setup with only three wires (white, amber, and ground) and allow you to run the white mode continuously until interrupted by the signal--at which point they will blink amber. Once the signal stops, the Pivot ring will automatically switch back to its pure white mode.
Optional Housing Sealant: Protection is priceless! When you're putting together a set of high-end headlights, the last thing you want is moisture in 'em the first time it rains outside. RetroRubber is the most effective way to make sure the original seal is fully restored. For the small price, why anybody wouldn't prevent their new headlights from fogging up is beyond us. It'll be the best twelve bucks you've ever spent.

Great product, great company. TRS really set the bar, being in Hawaii with the time difference against me. TRS still managed to create a fast transaction and get everything shipped to me extremely fast. Even considering the amount of orders currently thrown there way because of the TacomaWorld group buy.
<br>Everything was packaged and secured. Top quality products, Pretty much self explanatory as far as installing this kit. The output is great and I'm glad to have made this move.
<br>A must have and definitely recommend this to everyone.
<br>Thanks you TRS

I'm still awestruck by the light I get out of these when I flip on the high beams.
<br>I got the square lens version because I thought it'd look better in my square reflectors and I think they turned out great. Installation was fairly easy with only a bit of sanding before I could bolt in the projectors.
<br>It's been a few weeks and they seem to be holding up well.

I was looking for a high quality OEM like retrofit and I didn't want to have to deal with tons of epoxy or complicated bolting in. I found these to be very easy to install in my 9006 based headlights with just a 1.5" hole saw! The XB55 ballasts are simply amazing, warm up is just seconds and the new design with the igniter at the bulb makes for an easier retrofit. Overall I would strongly suggest these to anyone looking to do a retrofit. Whether it's your first time or you've done many but just need something that will work great without the extra complications.

First time using the mini d2s (used the fxr kit twice before). This kit was MUCH easier to work with. The output is great as well... I'd definitely consider this for my next retro.

Installed in my 2009 Cobalt. What a difference. NOTHING beats retrofitted HID projectors. The cut off is clean, and the brightness is BRIGHT. IT also DOESN'T blind oncoming drivers!!! It's amazing

I am currently running a set of custom retrofits with all TRS parts and they have performed amazingly and look even better, and I am ordering my second set of parts just to try a different projector/shroud/paint combo on my light. TRS Rocks!

I bought this kit for my 1st time ever retrofitting and I guess you can say I got some balls to be messing with a brand new 2012 Impreza Sports Premium as my 1st car to do it on. LOL! I have to say though, I am so amazed by the quality of the kit and the level of easy to install can't be any easier than this, especially for a 1st timer like me. I can't say enough about the quality products that The Retrofit Source sells. I'm a true believer when it comes to, "you get what you paid for". Thanks for the great service and very fast shipping you guys provide.

I joined the retrofit crowd recently with the help of TRS' products and knowledge. They answered all of my questions......even the DUMB ones. The kit for my application (05+ Tacoma) was easy to retro with the provided instructions and browsing the forum. Two small issues with my kit.....the first was the LED rings needed to be soldered from general handling/test fitting. The second was the D2S connectors and how they went on. One went on with ease, the other would not at all. So i looked inside the connector and there was a small yellow grommet that was blocking the connection. Called TRS and they verified it wasn't necessary. So all in all I'd say it was a success. If it were not for those minor details i would have given a 5 star rating for sure.

I bought this kit to do an install (my first) on my 1999 Taurus SHO. When I recieved it I couldn't help but be impressed by the quality of the components that TRS had put together to make it such an easy retrofit. Every piece was top quality. Like I mentioned this was going to be my first retrofit, so I measured and measured again as I wanted to make sure I didn't mess this up (did I mention I am in Germany). I started on my install at around 3 in the afternoon and about 4 hours later I was completely done. I couldn't believe it, there was no way that it was that easy, and this had been something that I had put off because I thought it would be too difficult. Was it worth it, every pennies worth, the light output was everything I wanted and more. Thanks TRS for a great product.

I recently fitted this kit to my Patrol which was my first retro. The service was excellent and they couldn't have been more helpful. The freight was cheap and I received everything within a week to Australia (it takes longer from state to state here lol). The quality of the kit leaves all others I've seen for dead. The wiring loom is the best quality I've seen and basicly plug and play. There is no flickering and the lights warm up in seconds. I really cant say enough about these guys and there products.
