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!

Christopher Opito

I bought this H11 kit last week, installed them that day. That night i was so impressed! I don't typically write reviews unless i'm angry with the product but in this case I am so impressed i had to! I'm pretty sure we have all try'd the cheaper kit's from around the internet, trust when i say save up your money and buy your kit's from TRS. It will save you so much stuff of poor lighting and feeling like you got ripped off! I'll be a customer and salesman for anyone looking for quality product! Thank you guys for giving me hope that not every place on the internet is out for money over pleasing customers. Thank you again and i will certainly be a returning customer!

I got this kit

Jim Yu

I got this kit then was able to contact Matt and Andrew and the communication was very fast and excellent service!!

So I wanted to switch to 50w instead of 35w ballast they were able to do a special order for me on and was excellent!!

The ballast looks like it was very well made and excellent quality! Still waiting on to get dark and see how bright these are! I'm sure it will be brighter than other companies!

Michael Pretekin

I purchased this kit (4300k) with the heavy duty relay harness for my 2010 Prius, and I am pleased to say everything clicked together and fired right up just like it should. The output from these bulbs and ballasts does not disappoint. I was please to find that the output characteristics from my OEM projectors were not significantly altered and the beam quality remains acceptable.



I liked the LED inside the cube relays - it's a nice troubleshooting aid to help trace a problem should one arise.



The wire harness is incredibly stout, and it may be possible using mil-spec wire and expandable sleeving to cut down on the bulk a little bit, but I found the lengths were excellent for being a general application harness. I had plenty of wire to reach where i needed it to go.



I chose not to use the included bulb seals, but instead transferred the seals from my old halogen bulbs. This made the installation go considerably smoother as I did not have to wrench on the bulbs to get them to seat. I could feel the seals grab, and the bulbs passed the wiggle test.



On the customer service side of things, I exchanged a few emails with Andrew, and I have to say I am very pleased to have another excellent experience with this company. I can't help but wonder what they put in their coffee to make them so excited about their work and so eager to help - but it does just that. Shipping went extremely fast and everything arrived in good condition.



In closing, I'll say that you *could* buy a cheap kit for a fraction of this price - but for the quality of the product and the confidence I have that I've got somebody who will pick up the phone and help me out if I have a problem - I would, and probably will pay the difference again.

Dean Winton

I ordered the HID Elite Kit with the Morimoto 3Five ballasts from Andrew for my 2011 Lexus CT200h. I couldn't be happier with the kit, the service and how easy they were to install. I have seen a lot of the Hondas, Scions and Nissans on the road with the cheap kits whose lights look purple or blind you due to cheap components used. This kit makes my Lexus lights look like they came with factory HID lights although they were not an offered option for my car. They are not the cheapest HID kit out there but based on their reputation that I have checked out...the kit sold by Retrofit Source seems to be a quality built product and if you have any questions after the sale---at least you know there are people you can call for advice or help. Thank you RS for taking something that seemed complex to me at first (choosing the right components) and making it an easy task. I will highly recommend you to anyone I know who is looking to do a similar upgrade.

Ron Hettich

TRS has the only H11 bulbs that are built correctly as to not give the 6 o'clock rod shadow I was experiencing with other lesser HID bulbs. They also have a much better and distinct cut off then any other bulbs I've tried.

2013 Ford Fusion S

James

Installed this kit with the standalone canbus and had absolutely no errors or flickering. Install took about 1 hour the hardest part was finding room to mount the ballasts, igniter, and canbus . I got the five5 kit and they are very bright I plan on tinting the headlights which is why I went with the five5 instead of the three5 and I am very glad I did. It is strangely satisfying sitting at a light next to someone else with HIDs and drowning out theirs. I installed a set of the better cheap (kensun) ones you can get on amazon in my fiances van and you can definitely tell the quality with this system. I can say without a doubt I will be dealing with morimoto equipment and the retrofit source in the future. To 2nd gen fusion owners you do not have to take the front bumper completely off just take the top fasteners and bolts out and the ones ones on the edge of the tire well that you have to screw then just pull it forward and there will be plenty of space to pull the headlight out.

2015 Mazda 3 Install

Kyle

My install went pretty much as expected from the standpoint that I had read previous installs on my specific vehicle and had somewhat of an idea of what I was getting into.



For my specific car, this is not simply a 1 - 1+ hour install. If you want to do it right, run wiring correctly, find a discreet and logical mounting location for ballasts and harness, and test everything, set aside 3-4 hours for the job.



Where I can only give 4 stars is that the bulb wire that is sent is generic for either an internally wired cannbus unit or an externally wired hd relay unit, but the average person wouldn't really know it and TRS nor Morimoto let you know that it can work for both. So I took my front fascia off on a Sunday, mounted everything, and had to put it all back together and wait until today for support, which I received and could complete the job. I know these aren't application specific so it's hard to tailor it to every model that uses H11.



The Morimoto quality is apparent from the packaging to the product. Once installed, everything fired up right away and looked phenomenal. The passenger side ballast is emitting a loud high pitched whine that I hope will subside shortly.



Regardless, anyone who has a Mazda 3 (or any car with halogen projectors) should definitely give the Morimoto system a shot. I am extremely happy.

2013 Nissan Altima

Arthur Coleman

I just got these installed for my 2013 Nissan Altima and I have to say that I am very satisfied with it so far. What I like most about these is the side projection. My Altima was horrible in that area along with projection. By installing these, I am able to see farther away and have the visibility I need on the sides. I will update this review as needed as time progresses.

2017 Nissan Murano S. Awesome kit but...

Nicolas Lalaurette

Everything came nicely packed and sooner than expected, the instructions from the Morimoto website were easy to follow (this is my second HID kit install in over 10 years). My only issue was with the wiring harness. The quality of the harness is great, but the battery leads are way too long and the leads for the ballasts were short, at least for my application. I personally would have rather have shorter battery leads and longer ballast connectors. Other than that I will have to keep testing them and see how they hold up.
