H11: Morimoto EliteB-HID-MM-H11-TRS
[ In Stock: 0 pieces ]
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!

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!

Easy install, so far so good!
Just finished installing this in my 2014 Accord. The ballast are small enough that you shouldn't have much issue finding a place to mount them (even in the cramped engine compartments of modern vehicles). The connections were solid and fool-proof. Seems like much higher quality than the $80 dollar kits you can get, you get what you pay for.
Overall, the quality seems really good so far, fast warm-ups and excellent light. Check to see if you need the XB for the bottom return wire (Accord does) so you don't get a shadow based on where the return wire is.
Will try to follow up in a few months to see how these are holding up! Would recommend based on experience so far!
Excellent quality materials
I installed this on my 2011 Sierra 1500 with the anti-flicker capacitor and 35W ballasts with 5500K bulb (H11A). It fired up first attempt, no flickering and superior light output to the stock halogen H11. The relay harness could have been maybe 12" longer for the opposite side ballast. I mounted the relay to my left fender and it barely reached the right ballast that was inboard of the headlight. I was really impressed with the packaging and quality of the parts, they really do have an OEM quality to them. The instructions online are pretty straightforward with good diagrams, a printed sheet inside the box would have been nice. One of the orange brackets on a ballast came off as the screws stripped out, the screws need to be longer that are holding the brackets on, they are only holding by a couple of threads and a bit of tugging with zip-ties during installation caused them to pull out. If not for the short wiring and bracket fail, this kit would get 5 stars! Overall very happy with it... Well worth the price!
Fantastic Product & Customer Service
I purchased the H11 kit for my 2011 Subaru WRX a few months ago. The install was very straight forward and the kit has worked as promised. I did have a issue with my ballasts that was promptly addressed and I was sent brand new ballasts to correct the issue. The customer service was phenomenal. Zach was extremely helpful both on the phone and in our correspondence through email. I definitely recommend both this HID kit and the company to anyone looking for a good quality product. Also note that I purchased the 6000k bulbs and couldn't be happier. They are bright white with a slight hint of blue at certain angles. Still very OEM like. Thanks guys!
Extremely bright output!
2016 WRX Premium
H11B, 5500K, 35W Ballast, HD Relay
These HID's are the real deal. Excellent output in brightness. Color is an accurate pure white with zero blue tint at 5500k. Bulbs fitment is like oem.
Installation is a breeze, took about an hour. The HD relay is an extra step to add in the install process, mainly tucking the extra wires. The HD relay is necessary if you want a safe install and a flicker free performance.
Overall, money well spent in this purchase. Great quality plus a warranty that can't be beat.
Fianlly !!!! No EMI/RFI
I had DDM, they were OK but caused horrific RFI to my CB/Ham radio's. Tried Kensun, same thing plus the right light wouldn't always ignite on the first try after the second day (returned!). I decided I couldn't win but thought after a few months to give it one more go. Maybe it's the relay harness, maybe it's the better quality shielding, maybe it's the better quality electronics, or maybe its just plain better over all build and quality control? In any event I am very satisfied now. I can drive at night and hear all of the stations and operators I was missing before when the sun went down.
Glad I choose Kit!
These are some legit HID Kits. This is my first time installing HID kit and It wasn't that hard. The instuctions were easy to follow, only part was that i wasnt sure how were to connect the caoacitor but google helped me out. Overall I'm enjoying these badass HIDs on my ride. Everything was plug n play. I highly recommend these!!
First time buyer w/TRS
Ordered this kit 11/21/18
So it's still in the process of being delivered to me. I'm writing my review early with the intent on updating it after the install and testing of the product.
But I wanted to go out of my way to review the website and customer service as a whole. I bought an HID kit which I had questions regarding the product. I decided to use the live chat option at the bottom right of the website page. Immediately sending my question I received a response and proceeded to correspond with an employee there. Extremely helpful, very polite, very knowledgeable, and was actually cracking jokes. I must admit as of now thus far you guys at TRS have gotten A+ in my book. I would absolutely recommend this company, and having this brand before I can absolutely recommend the brand as it truly has stood by its quality for the last 5 Years to my knowledge and my experience. I hope to get them in soon and I cannot wait to install and try them out. I will absolutely update my review after that. But as of now so far an absolute pleasure to do business with. Keep up the good work guys you definitely have a repeat customer in me.
Good quality and easy to DIY
The lights were installed with ease. Especially for a first time installation. Only con was that one of my bulbs had slight damage. One of the black tabs on one bulb was chipped to the point of almost malfunctioning. Otherwise they light up well and the kit is easy to hide for a nice OEM look.
Great for 2014+ Mazda3
I purchased a set of these for my 2014 Mazda3 and they are simply plug and play. Just remove the old bulbs from the projector, mount the ballasts and relay them hook everything up. It was that easy. I love that these match the XB Head Light LEDs I just bought as well :)
Great Output Blows Halogen Away
This set was very easy to install using the instructions posted to the site. Once installed into my factory projectors and re-aimed, these headlights vastly outperformed my stock halogens in both illumination of the sides of the road but also in throw distance.
