Product Details

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?

Optioned Out: With a variety of available options, the Morimoto Elite HID system can be configured perfectly just for you. This helpful video goes over each of the options shown above.

HID Ballasts: Morimoto’s XB ballasts are a functional work of art. While the industrial-edge design by California native Artur Saakyan looks great from the outside, they’re packed with too much modern tech on the inside to cover it all in on place. Their DSP 3.0 circuit maximizes reliability, input and output efficiency. Their ability to warm the bulbs up to full operating intensity quickly is matched by few. Hardly are all aftermarket-HID ballasts the same, and the XB’s make that clear in most every category in our opinion.

9006 HID Bulbs: Homegrown by Morimoto to out-perform any alternatives on the market when installed in projector-based headlight…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 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 kits have 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!

Trusted: For more than a decade, we've worked hard to earn our reputation. Car guys world-wide know that TRS carries the internet's best selection of high performance automotive lighting products at the best prices, and we've got the best, most knowledgeable team of real enthusiasts to help back it up. If we sell it, then you bet we've put it to the test on our own cars. Need a recommendation on parts for your project? Got a tech question? Wholesale inquiry? Contact Us

Outstanding!!!

Clint Zephir Reviewed: 10.04.2016

I installed these on my 2006 Scion xB and the total time was about 20 minutes. What took the longest time was routing the wires for a clean look and the instructions could not be easier. I'm recommending TRS to everyone I know!

Best on the Market!

Anthony Whittington Reviewed: 09.21.2016

Well worth the money. Sad to say, but I initially made the mistake of buying one of the more common "ebay" cheap units from a shop in California. I thought it would be better then the other cheap units, I was WRONG. Within months, a ballast went out. After fulfilling the lifetime warranty, the other ballast went out. Instead of having to continuously deal with this headache, I decided to get this system from TRS.

This is by far the best option on the market. You pay for what you get. The quality is so much better, especially with the bulbs. Plus when hitting bumps, there is no jitter that I experienced with the previous kit.

Install was fairly easy on my 2008 Mitsu Lancer. Just took some time to feed the relay and find convenient placements for the ballasts. I would highly recommend removing the front bumper if you have a Lancer like I do. Made install a breeze! Thank you TRS! Now I just have to find the time to do a projector retrofit...

Best HIDs on the market!

Geoffrey Reviewed: 10.02.2014

I purchased this system for my 2004 Chevy Silverado. I had heard many great things from TRS and thought I would give this HID system a try. Wow! Well worth the money and great quality. No better company than TRS. My old "cheap" HIDs went out less than 6 months with no warranty. I like the idea of the HD Relay Harness connecting straight to the battery and only using the cars headlight plug as a trigger. TRS FTW!

Better than expected

Donald Reviewed: 09.08.2014

I purchased the 9006: Morimoto Elite HID for my 2003 Miata. The results were better than expected. I have tried other HID kits only to remove them because the beam pattern was everywhere and blinded everyone. Someone suggested that I try the Morimoto kit and I decided that I would. I figured there would not be much of a loss if it didn't work since most of the parts are what is used for a Retrofit and I still plan on doing a proper Retrofit in the future. See the before and after shot on the TRS Facebook page.

These are the best hands down. I installed these on my 2008 Trailblazer SS. All I can say is if you dont have one of these kits your missing out. Huge difference in the stock head lights. I cant say enough good about this product. Keep up the good work guys.

Best HID's on the market!!

Nolan Reviewed: 02.25.2014

I've bought DDM Tuning HID's and those lasted a week before the ballasts went out. I've seen several low-end HID's also go out. But these TRS HID's are the real deal! Yes, they are pretty expensive, but the quality, craftsmanship and customer support is the best out there! I'm glad I made the leap to TRS HID's!

Read nothing but great things about these HID kits and I'm finally getting one for my Toyota Corolla, low beam and fog lights. Also outstanding customer service from this site and very helpful.

I ordered the 9006: Morimoto Elite HID System and unfortunately had not had the chance to install them on my car by myself but, I took it to an aftermarket shop and when they were installed It looked amazing. I have to tell you, the quality is just ridiculously good. It is very bright, even without specific Xenon projectors the flicker is very sexy at startup. I have a 2008 Honda Accord V6 EX-L 4 Door and the 5000K temperature goes along extremely well with my car. I would also like to buy these HID's for my fog lights but they are a little out of my price range so I will wait. DO NOT get eBay crap, in my opinion, Morimoto is the best HID company out there. For this price, and the 5 year warranty that they offer, this kit is just unbeatable.
Overall, this kit looks sexy on my 2008 Honda Accord and if I can get a good discount for another pair of these lights from TheRetroFitSource I'll buy myself another pair.
Thanks TheRetroFitSource, definitely not a waste of time OR money,
-Alex

I purchased this kit knowing it would be top notch since I have already done a full projector retrofit on my wife's car using all parts from TRS, just want to put in two cents for this kit as well.
Construction of all parts is excellent. The Morimoto 5five ballasts I chose with this kit are as close to OEM quality as I have ever seen. Warm up time is quick, and the ballasts do not even run warm, let alone hot like the cheap kits.
The heavy duty wiring harness is in fact heavy duty. The wiring is actually of a thick gauge and properly sheathed, unlike ebay kits.
The OSRAM rebased bulbs, when compared to the factory halogen HIR2 (9012) bulbs, are aligned precisely and are extremely solid.
I am not sure I can say enough about TRS customer service either. I had the unfortunate experience of breaking a bulb (completely my mistake) when installing this kit in a hurry. TRS was happy to talk to me on the phone and get me a new set of bulbs shipped immediately.
I also discovered that my car uses pulsing DRL, rather than low voltage. A quick chat with TRS customer support and the plug-n-play capacitor I needed was on its way.
If you are thinking of going with a cheap ebay kit to save some money, trust me you won't in the end. Just go with TRS and know that you are in excellent hands. Their equipment and customer service is second to none.
