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?

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!

Trusted: For more than a decade, we've worked hard to earn our killer reputation. 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. If we sell it, then you bet we've put it to the test on our own cars, trucks, and bikes. Need a recommendation on parts for your project? Got a tech question? Wholesale inquiry? Contact us!

The first time

Arthur Valdoz

The first time I received my order, I noticed that I ordered the wrong wrong bulb and relay. Called up TRS on the 22nd of Jan. and received the correct size on the 25th. I think it would quicker if the bulb was not on back order.

I’m so impressed with the feel of the whole kit. The length and width of the ballast is almost the same as a credit card. I compare the feel to the Iphone 4S. It’s compact but it has a mass to it. The picture of the ballast in the website doesn’t do it justice. Also, I love the color of the ballast. It came in blue.

The HID output is great. I decided to get the 4300K. I can see so much better when driving.

The installation was easy. It took me about 30 min. The longest part of the install is picking the places to mount the ballast and cubes of the relay. I mounted the ballast with a 3M outdoor double sided tape. According to packaging it can hold up to 20 pounds. For the cube, I bought a crown bolt, washer and nut to mount it correctly according to the website instruction. The only problem I encountered was the polarity of the wire.

I hope the quality of the whole kit is the same as the feel of kit. I haven’t seen anyone else post how long the kit last. If all goes well I gonna buy retrofit in about a year and update my post.

Thanks TRS for the great customer service!

I bought this M

Robert Bradford

I bought this Morimoto Elite HID kit through Retrofit Source on eBay. The customer service was great, but the kit itself was even better. For those who were hesitant to purchase a $150 kit when alternatives from China (DDM, VVME) were available for 1/2 the price. Take it from me, it was worth it. I have owned both DDM Raptor and VVME kits and found them worthwhile for about a week and then you can see the quality deteriorate. The bulbs dim and change colors. These Morimoto bulbs look and feel of better quality, and the ballast look like something off of NASA's space engineering program. Well worth the purchase!!!

I guess it's no

Dan Wu

I guess it's not hard to see why EVERYONE recommends TheRetrofitSource.

After about half a dozen attempt at making one of the supposed "plug and play" H11B kits work on my 2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo, I finally gave up and returned the kit and bought a TRS H11 kit, despite the unknown of whether or not the H11 kit would work in an H11B socket. In the end, the amount of money spent trying to make the "other" kit work ended up costing about the same had I just bought the TRS Morimoto kit to start. I'm not going to go into detail as to what went wrong with the other kit, but the end result was the kit, plus extra for harness, then having to buy new relays, and add a resistor and capacitor just to make it work, and it was still playing havoc with the car's electronics...SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT A TRS KIT IN THE FIRST PLACE.

For those looking at any of the new Kia/Hyundai with H11B bulbs in the low beam projectors, just to let you all know, the H11 kit from TRS fits perfectly. I went with the stand-alone CANbus harness and everything works and works well on the very first try, and there are no additional harnesses that's visible from the engine bay and almost zero signs of alterations. Best of all, there are NO RETURN WIRE SHADOWS! Truly plug and play, with very accurate light color, unlike the typical sub $100 kits you'd get, where the 4300 K, 5000K, and 6000K bulbs all look the same with a heavy dose of blue tint.

I'm so happy with the purchase I'm contemplating surprising my wife with a full HID upgrade for her 2011 Hyundai Tucson from TRS.

Ok guys, I HAVE

David Anderson

Ok guys, I HAVE been through HID hell and back and let me tell you over the past year I have invested $400+ in crappy kits from ebay and even local "shops" in Portland, Oregon that claim to be legit.

First like everyone, I sought out the cheap ebay Xentec kit. One word about Xentec.. Absolute garbage! They have two types of DC systems and besides the VERY short life of their bulbs, they sell ballasts that never fully warm up. So my visibility was very limited. My 6000k looked like a dingy blue.

So then, I tried some local shops that even installed for free. They sold kits that had what felt like heavy duty ballasts. They took forever to start up.. In the end, i returned to the "shop" over 3 times within 2 years. Then i looked on Craigslist and found these local sellers of HID systems for only $60!! I thought wow, these must be better right? They were the same exact quality as the Xentec kits. Nobody could give me a brand name!

All the above kits were made by someone so proud of their product that they felt a name shouldn't be included. (Probably for reviews like this) Almost all of the sellers told me that HIDs come from the same manufacturer. NOT true. Oh, on top of all this ... none of the HID kits were sold with a relay harness. When I bought one my self, it couldn't ground correctly.

Problems I had(before TRS):

- VERY slow start up.

- Never fully getting to 35W 6000k looked like 10,000k

- Having to re-turn on my lights to get both of them to fire up on both sides.

- Bulbs burning out too quickly.

- Alignment issues with my lights being all over the road. ( Very Unsafe to other drivers)

- Playing the parking lot guessing game if the lights are on both sides. Driving too close to another vehicle sometimes just to see a reflection.

- Flickering once fully warmed up.

So, now I buy the TRS Morimoto Elite System...

Let me tell you I couldn't be more happier. This system has dual relays with power out indicators on the relays. The materials are thick and tough.

I bought 6000k and installed them in my 2011 Nissan Altima with stock non-projector housings. Now, when I installed the other kits from above listed, None of them even aligned correctly to come close to what cutoff I had from the stock halogens. Let me tell you, The Morimoto's even without projectors installed due to there perfect alignment looked just like the stock cutoff. This is the first kit to actually do this!

This impressed me alone in itself. So, I thought I might have warm-up issues or one side firing on faster than the other? Nope! These systems are absolutely TOP NOTCH! Even in 28* Morning weather, these lights don't take long to fire up at all. You can hear the clicking of the relays and my light output is only 35 Watts but 6000k looks like true white light with a tiny hint of blue/purple. But here's the law in Oregon anyways, if your pulled over by police they have one test that they administer. Your lights could be any color except true deep blue. But, if they pull out a piece of white paper and ANY other color but white reflects back your going to get a hefty ticket.

Point is this, if you want to keep dumping money into your lighting and never truly get anywhere .. stick to buying from ebay, amazon your local shops that meet you in parking lots from craigslist.

If your looking for excellent build quality, excellent support and an amazing warranty buy this kit from TRS. You can't go wrong. I am a customer for life now. I am spreading the word about your products to anyone looking to upgrade their lighting. Solid company and VERY cool people that DO know what they are talking about.

After wasting m

Brett Brygider

After wasting my time and money with cheap, under-quality HID kits, I was referred to by a friend to purchase my H11 kit with relay harness from The Retrofit Source. Customer service is exceptional, they shipped quick, installation was quick and painless and I am extremely happy with the quality of the kit and and the output and performance. Will recommend to anyone looking to retrofit and will definitely return in the future.

Brandon Coles

I purchased the H11 Elite Kit for my 2010 Camry LE and I couldn't be more happier. This kit is a huge upgrade from stock and the light output is amazing. It is definitely worth the money. The quality is top notch and shipping was very quick. I printed off a copy of the instructions which made installation a breeze. These things are built to last. Thanks I'm glad I ran across this website!

Kevin On

Purchased the 3Five 4300k kit for my 2012 ct200h to replace those nasty halogen's and I gotta say that it is money well spent! I was considering this over a set of McCulloch's but I'm glad I went with the Morimoto's. The quality of the light is good. My installer was surprised at how much extra lenth there was from the ballast to the bulb. The warranty on these bulbs is rad compared to McCulloch's 2 year warranty. I researched what HID kit to go with and I was tempted to go with another brands cheaper $60 kit but I read some many problems with those kits and misfiring that I decided that you get what you pay for so I went ahead and took the dive to get this and wouldn't regret it. I would highly recommend these to anybody looking to upgrade their lights to HID's. I'm considering upgrading my fogs to the 3000k kit too and will buy it from TRS once I decide to take the jump.

Felix Melendez

I purchased two $30 Xentec kits from ebay for my old car (low beam and high beam) and boy was I dissapointed!!! The ballasts were cheap looking, didnt come with a mounting bracket, and they flickered from day one. I didnt want to make the same mistake twice, so I purchased the H11 Elite kit. Even though I spent more money, I didnt regret it. Delivery was fast, and the customer service was excellent. The heavy duty relay was a little tricky, but once we figured it out, everything hooked up smoothly. The light output is amazing... nice cut off, and no flickering,I would definitely recommend this kit. No more ebay kits for me!!!

I've purchased

Minh Tran

I've purchased the H11 Elite Kit for my 07 4Runner. The kit arrived quickly. Very well built, harness was definitely top notched and well put together. It would have been great if you guys included few minor instructions because I was a little confused with extra wirings/pigtails that I wasn't sure where they are supposed to go, turned out I didn't need them. Other than that, the kit was as advertised and expected. I highly recommend it. However, one thing I wish it was different is for the H11 bulbs to have the return wire on the bottom instead of being on top to minimize the shadow effect. Customer service was on point and helpful. Overall, I'm a happy camper. TRS is legit.
