No Comparison: When it comes to HID bulbs, Morimoto has always brought us the best in the aftermarket, and their latest examples are no exception. Sure we think the options from Philips and Osram are great too, but when it comes to bang for the buck - nothing compares to the Morimoto XB HID lineup. Compatible with 35W and 55W: The XB's will produce more lumens, last longer, project farther, and look better doing it.

Lumin Osity: At the heart of the XB D2H bulbs is their perfectly aligned 100% Philips quartz glass that houses a capsule from APL-USA. Using high quality halide salts from German-supplier Messer; the bulbs produce nearly the same lumin Osity (intensity) as the amazing Osram CBI bulbs at 5500K. No, you're not seeing things here, but yes you will be seeing everything at night. In our Comparison to the big brands; Morimoto's XB capsule ran with the best of em!

Long Life: The Austrian-sourced Plansee electrodes help keep the bulbs running brighter for longer. In comparison to a Philips bulb with 200 hours of use; the Morimoto will maintain 83% of it's intensity whereas the Philips bulb will retain 86%. Yeah, the Philips maintains a little longer, but this kind of longevity is unheard of in the aftermarket. We're impressed!

Precise Alignment: Morimoto's Symmetry-Structure frame surrounds the base of the glass capsule keeping everything properly lined up, which is paramount when it comes to HID bulbs. In the past we all agreed that precision wasn't the strong suit for the XB bulbs... But the latest are indeed the greatest - and they're now consistently well-aligned, which is a good thing - because it means the output is also consistently bright and uniform throughout. [Applause]

Industry Standard: The XB replacement HID bulbs are built to industry-standard size specifications and are compatible with all ballasts with "AMP" outputs - making them a perfect match for a replacement bulb or upgrade! We've tested them here in the shop for reliability with all ballasts from Morimoto, Hylux, ACME, Denso, Hella, Bosch, and Koito and passed with ease.

2017 Mitsubishi Lancer


I bought these lights for my Lancer and they came quick and work amazingly. Before I bought them I messaged the company for suggestions and they responded fast and were a lot of help! Definitely a great buy for my car!


Wow - bright!


I replaced a set of generic 5000K HID bulbs that were 2 years old and had come with a set of projector housings for my 2014 Passat. The original bulbs never seemed very bright, and had lost a dramatic amount of light output over the two years that I used them. I ordered a set of 4500K Morimoto DXB 2H to replace the, maximize lumens and make for a better temperature match to my halogen fogs and high beams. Wow, wow, wow - these bulb are much, much, much brighter than thr previous ones ever were - nice bright contrast on the road with on coming traffic, and on dimly lit rainy roads. The bulb itself and included harness spoke to the much higher quality of these Morimoto over the generic equipment that they were replacing (and which seemed pretty darn nice at first look). $40 is a bargain for such a dramatic difference. I used to have to run my fogs to be able to see well at night, but now turning on my fogs has only a small impact. Now I wondering if I should replace the ballasts, too!
