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!

Best hid kit


I had cheap hid kit before that I purchased online and they went out very quick and overheated so I didn't want to damaged my car wiring and I did pretty good research and find out morimoto hid kit. Price seems high but it is best product and it is worth of every penny I paid because it has high quality. I read couple review about Toyota Prius compliment about shades after applying but I have no shades on mine. It has very good vision. I would definitely recommend everyone. Don't think about price just buy it and has 5 years warranty on 35w ballast so instead of buying and replacing cheap products every 2 or 3 months and damaging your car wires just buy this product and no worries.

Best HID Set I have ever purchased.


I have bought low buck cheap xentec HID's before and they were god awful and I tried to steer clear of HID's. But I bought these for my buddies 2013 Honda Accord Coupe and they come with stock projectors in the headlights but with halogen bulbs. So we changed that. I bought the 6000k XB35 series bulb and boy is this thing bright. We compared it to our other buddies 2012 Mustang GT C/S with OEM Ford HID's probably around 4300-4500K and these looked so much better and more crisp and overall were just way more powerful. The one thing I will say though is that there was a little bit of flickering from the driver side bulb on the first few startups but after a drive and using the bulbs for a long period of time, that went away. I'm sure these will wear in nicely but my friend is definitely satisfied with them and so am I. I will never buy HID's From anywhere else.

Best HID kit ever

Eduardo Ceja

I installed these on my new Lexus CT200h and i could not be happier. I was worried through hearing in the forums for Lexus about the auto on feature not working and the HID would fail to turn on with other brands but no misfires at all. The difference in light output compared to other non quality HID is literally night and day. I got the 5500k color and have had so many compliments about them. Install was easy and plug and play. I highly recommend it

Best Quality HID Kit


Bought this for my wife's 2015 Honda crv touring. She absolutely loves it. This system has amazing light output. No issues with flickering or cutting on or off. She leaves her head lights on auto and works amazing. I would recommend upgrading the bulb to the xb35 so you have no shadow in your light pattern. Yes its more than other systems but you get what you pay for. Morimoto elite is the best brand out and you won't be disappointed.

Best of The Best


I first purchased the xentec hid kit from ebay, for 30 bucks. i regret it, the 6k looked more like a 10k . Then i Got trs kit for my 2013 Camry Se, ordered a 4500. Then I saw how good the 5500k looked I called, and they were able to swap out the bulbs for me. And still had 2 day shipping. Quality is waaaaaay better than ebay. You get what you pay for. Thanks TRS!

Better output than any halogen/led but tricky installation

Quang Nguyen

Hi, I have a 2019 Honda civic hatchback. I previously tried some LED (Hikari 9600 Lumens) and they were absolute shit. The throw was weaker than OEM Halogen, it spread was abysmal and it will not light up the road at all. I wanted to try the h11 kit and the difference is night and day. The installation is very easy in a sense that you can easily follow the diagram and connect every cable. I did a test run and I ran into a issue where I didn't ground it properly. I hit up TRS chat and Mike and Neil helped me ground the wire perfectly. Their customer service is the main reason why you should order from TRS. Back to my car, the 19 civic hatch will have a rough time mounting the ballast computer and HD relay system so I would suggest for anyone to order extra ballast cable.

The performance of the light itself is amazing. The warm up time is very tiny, and I love how it feels like an arc reactor powering up. The 5500k is not a pure white, it have a slight tint of blue/teal to it. It is definitely something that not deal breaking for me. The throw of the kit is amazing when comparing to the LED/halogen. I am lighting up street signs that I have never seen before. the cut off is very good, I can tell that it will not hit anybody wind shield from the back or sides. The spread is also pretty much x2 the normal width as my halogen. You can easily tell the difference when you turn it on and off. I would highly recommend this light for 1. the good customer service and low chat wait time 2. the HID will beat any led/halogen in the market 3. simple to follow instruction but it only the concealing part that is hard (which is a personal preferences).

CX-5 non-tech upgrade :)


Put these into my Mazda CX-5 non-tech. Install was a breeze, says to allow for an hour, but i have tiny hands and knocked this job down in under 30 minutes with a ratchet set. I quite like the improved brightness and with the 4300k it looks OEM next to my neighbours CX-5 with stock HID. Can't wait to take the drive through the Canadian rockies this weekend and see the pitch dark performance,

Blown away

Mike Spalt

I've owned several HID kits in the past...all other brands. At some point, I end up here to replace a relay or a ballast or a wire...

Parts from here have never failed me. When I got a new car, it came with projectors with halogen bulbs. That wasn't cutting it. I ordered a kit and install was easy.

That night I was amazed. This is my first complete kit I've bought from TRS and it blows everything else away.

It was so good, that I got the same kit for my 77 year old dad. He can see much better at night and that means he and you are more safe!

My only suggestion would be to lengthen the harness that supplies power to the passenger side ballast.

Don't settle for anything else

JC Nubla

Purchased a set for my 2018 Tacoma. I've had experience on the cheaper HID sets out there on the market. I was always on the "okay" side of it. Installed these H11 Morimoto Elite's and i was blown away!!! Light output is really bright and the cutoff was clean! Don't settle for the cheaper ones out there! This is well worth the $$$!

Easy Install. Tremendous Quality. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!


Just finished installing my H11: Morimoto Elite HID System in my 2014 Acura ILX.

My headlights are internally wired, so I needed to cut a hole into the headlight caps, but that was the only part that wasn't fully plug and play. Also, the pieces that are incorporated into the bulb wiring make them sit so flush in the holes I made in the headlight caps.

Mounting was a breeze, I was able to use only the factory grounds in the car, and the ballasts were slim enough to tuck away perfectly.

The wire harnesses of the HD Relay matched my factory wiring, and I was able to tie them to the factory harnesses to keep that completely OEM look. Anybody that isn't specifically looking for aftermarket accessories won't be able to tell that these HIDs didn't come with the car.

As a bonus, the relays on the HD Relay Harness came completely blacked out, and where they're mounted between the battery and the fuse box make them look perfectly factory.

As far as the light goes, the cutoff is exactly the same as my factory headlights, but the output is tremendously better. I went with the 5000K, pure-white look, and I could not be happier. The light shows through the projector so beautifully, it's as if they were built for HIDs to begin with.

Kudos, TRS, you were not lying when you say that this kit is the premier kit.

If you're looking for HIDs, get off of eBay, get off of Amazon, and order your kit from TRS right now. The slightly extra cost as compared to the cheapo kits is more than justified by the quality, performance, appearance, and warranty that you get from TRS.

I'm stoked!
