Acclaimed: Morimoto Elite Systems are recognized in the auto lighting industry as being among the best HID conversion kits available on the aftermarket. You might find a cheaper “solution” online, but buyer beware — you get what you pay for. We put this H1 HID conversion kit to the test, and nothing about it disappointed. But don’t take our word for it. Check the specs and read the Reviews from real customers like you.
Customizable: The Morimoto Elite HID system can be configured for your specific project. Check out this informative video to review each of the options in ballasts, bulbs, and wiring that are available to you.
HID Ballasts: The XB ballasts included in the HID H1 kit are a thing of beauty to automotive lighting nerds like us. An industrial-edge design on the outside provides the style you’re looking for, while inside an ultra reliable DSP 3.0 circuit delivers optimal input and output efficiency. Underestimate the importance of fast warming, high performing ballasts at your own peril! These will get your system to where it needs to be, and it will look great doing it.
H1 HID Bulbs: The latest iteration of XB HID bulbs by Morimoto produce eye-catching results when installed in projector-based headlights. Start with perfectly aligned 100% Philips Quarts glass. Mix in the use of high-quality halide salts, and you have a recipe for an HID bulb that can stand toe to toe with the best on the market. We tried them out against elite Osram CBI bulbs at 5500K, and the luminosity was nearly identical.
Wiring: You can put together the best components possible in an H1 HID conversion kit (and by the way, Morimoto probably has), but if you don’t include quality wiring, the long-term outlook is dark. Morimoto HID kits don’t skimp when it comes to the wiring. You get a relay harness with 14-gauge stranded copper wire that’s an OEM look-alike wrapped in durable black tech-flex mesh. All-new sealed double 40A relays and over-molded fittings ensure everything works, and your system remains reliable over a long service life. Plug-n-play functionality and no cutting or splicing equals clean and easy installation — just the way we like it!
Canbus Ready: Want to avoid annoying “bulb out” error messages you get when installing an HID kit on certain European vehicles? Optional Standalone Canbus harnesses are designed with smart technology that actually tricks the automobile into thinking its original factory equipment was never removed. A major system upgrade and a no blinking dashboard warnings — what more could you want?
Guaranteed Performance:Many online sources claim to stand behind their products, but when there’s actually a problem, they disappear like roaches when the light goes on. Our headlight upgrade and H1 HID fog light kits come with a 5-year warranty on all included components*. Plus, we’re there when you need us with customer service and after-sale support from real car guys who have installed and used these products in our own vehicles. [*XB55 kits have 3-year warranty]

I bought an XB55 and it is very impressive. Amazing light output and quality components. A breeze to install as well
It destroys the cheap junk ebay faux 55w HID kits I've tried and beats the 35w factory HID in my other car too and it has Osram CBI bulbs
Not only a great product but top service from TRS support and my whole order arrived in great packaging, it was a real treat to open it all up...just like Christmas!
I have a 2015 Jeep Wrangler and anyone who knows JK's know their stock halogen headlights are literally candles. Before I decided to go with HIDs I tried halogen upgrades and LEDs but found neither to be satisfactory since their beam output were either too scattered or too narrow.
This kit blows all of the above out of the water. I did a MH1 retrofit in my OEM JK housings and it worked great! I had to make a custom order through TRS since they don't have the Mopar Spec H13 harness as an option in the dropdown menu for some reason - maybe they will add it in.
There were a couple of connectors with loose retaining clips but doesn't seem to affect the electrical connection. All plugged up and worked perfectly.
Also wanted to note that I had some technical questions for the TRS team and they answered them all in detail. Great customer service guys!
If you're here you've probably owned a set of eBay plug and play hid's. You know where one bulb is sort of white, and the other kind of pink. Stop wasting your money on that junk. There is a huge difference. These 35w kits put out more light than their 55w. The bulb colors are correct, and I can here radio stations again. Everything is built to last, and comes with a REAL warranty. Worth every penny.
I was bit tentative about buying an HID system for this price considering you can get them for around 50 bucks on ebay now a days. As soon you open the box you can tell its not your average kit from ebay. Everything its nice and has a good quality look about it. And a nice quality look is not everything as soon as you plug it in your going to be amaze its day and night difference. I definitely recommend paying extra cause its well worth it, and to top it off TRS has some of the best customer service. ” — David
This HID system is one of the best out there! I haven't had much problems with it at all and it works perfectly and light output is great! Would recommend them to anyone
A little background: I purchased a set of projectors for my 13 F150. They came with dim, yellow, cheap H1 halogens. Daytime look was GREAT. Night was terrible. It was like two little candles in those things. I purchased the TRS 5500K 35W H1 kit with the motocontrol for the H13 harness on the truck. Man, what a difference! Warm up time is fast too!! It took me about 3 hours to do this job, only because I had to remove old wiring from the housings before doing the actual install. But, it was simple, and to the point. Keep up the good job guys!
I decided to build my first set of headlights, I was doing a budget build. Got all my parts from trs. I originally got a cheap set of hids from ebay, yes they were cheaper but were not as bright as i intended, and every other day one wouldn't work. I eventually got this kit from trs and I never know how much of a difference there would be. These hids look to be constructed better than any other set I have ever seen. The ballasts are really thin so its much easy to find a spot for them. After getting this set I will never cheep out again.
Currently on my second set of Morimoto HIDs. The first set had a bit of trouble, but was still far more reliable than cheaper kits. I was having some misfires on one of the sides while using the supplied harness, but TRS was quick to honor the warantee and ship out a replacement ballast for the failed side. Purchased a new set last week because I was having some misfires again on the replacement side, and this gave me an excuse to upgrade to the newer XB35 and XB bulbs. The installation of the new set was much cleaner, using the standalone CANBUS harness instead of the standard harness. The additional mounting points on the ballast bracket allow more options for mounting locations, but since there is no longer a center hole like in the previous 3Five ballast, It became a little awkward to mount using the same holes I had previously drilled.
Overall, ht Morimoto system has been far superior to the cheap kits from DDM and the like. I gave it 4 stars, only because one of my ballasts did experience some misfires, especially in the cold weather.
I have recently purchased 55W 4500K version. Installed it on the high beam section. It is very bright, colour is accurate, the build quality is the best and 3 years warranty. I am really impressed and satisfied.
I used Philips, P8, But this one is the best.
Good Job Morimoto, keep it on.
Bought H1 kit with 9007 connectors, was very easy plug and play. Like literally plug and play unlike most of the other things you see that say that. I love them, they work great, and improve my visibility 10 fold. If I have to buy another car, I will get another kit from these guys for sure.
