Celebrated: Since 2008, Morimoto has earned the reputation for providing superior, high performance lighting solutions to the automotive aftermarket. This H7 HID conversion kit is a testament to its hard work and dedication, combining the very best ballasts, bulbs, and harnesses for an out-of-the-box solution for upgrading your headlights! If you value your ability to see while driving at night, investing in Morimoto Elite Systems makes good sense, as opposed to the headaches and poor performance you get from slightly cheaper alternatives. 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?
Options Abound: A successful retrofit starts with having the right set of components for your specific vehicle. Morimoto offers H7 HID kits that can be custom configured to meet your individual project requirements. Watch this helpful video for insight into all of the options available in the drop-down menu above.
H7 HID Ballasts: California native, Artur Saakyan, provided the outward industrial edge design and state-of-the-art internal technology that set the latest generation of XB ballasts apart from the crowd. These ballasts race to warm up to full intensity and are wired to reduce high voltage transmitted through the wiring that has the tendency to cause other replacement ballasts to cause radio interfere. DSP 3.0 circuit software and a shielded main circuit board improve reliability, input and output efficiency. This may all seem a little dry and technical, but for lighting nerds like us, it’s electrifying!
H7 HID Bulbs: Morimoto spared no effort or expense in perfecting the XB bulbs included in H7 HID conversion kits. From premium halide salts sourced from German-supplier Messer to a perfectly aligned Philips Quartz glass housing, we’d put these XB HID bulbs up against the best. In fact, we have, and going toe to toe with legendary Osram CBI bulbs at 5500K, we could barely tell the difference. No matter how you measure luminosity, you’ll see it in full display driving in the darkest conditions.
HD Relay Harness: When you skimp out on wiring for an HID conversion kit to save on cost, chances are you’ll be paying a steeper price in the long run. It doesn’t matter how reliable the components are — if your junky wire harness gives out, it will leave you and your headlights in the dark. Morimoto harnesses have earned the reputation for being worth every cent you spend on them as opposed to lower cost solutions. From triple-sealed central relay packs to 14-gauge stranded copper wiring, these Relay Harnesses offer reliability and even power distribution through and through. Are they easy to install? There are only five connections, and each offers plug-n-play functionality with no cutting or splicing required!
Canbus Capable:Maybe you don’t mind annoying warning lights perpetually on your dash. There are some freaky people out there these days. Otherwise, if you are upgrading certain vehicles with sensitive circuitry, you’re going to want the optional Standalone Canbus harness recommended by Morimoto. It’s actually designed with a series of capacitors and resistors that eliminate “bulb out” error messages by tricking the vehicle into thinking nothing has changed.
Confident: What’s better than a premium quality H7 HID conversion kit from the most trusted brand in the auto lighting industry? A 5-year warranty on every component in the kit* should get the job done. These systems are designed to run for 2,500 hours, and we’ll stand behind them every step of the way. Should you have any trouble with installation or operation, just give us a call, and our experienced team will answer all your questions to find a solution. Ask the competition if they’ll do that — if you’re actually lucky enough to get a real person on the line. [*XB55 kits have 3-year warranty]

High beam: H7 in straight reflector, Elite XB55 ballast, XB 4500K bulb.
Low beam: H7 in shielded reflector, Elite XB35 ballast, XB 4500K bulb.
Comments on installation: Pretty straightforward, everything went together in about 3-4 hours (including fabricating some brackets for the ballasts and relays).
Comments on performance: Amazing! The beam pattern is very similar to that of the H7 halogen, but the range is dramatically improved. Deer etc. are visible a full 1 second earlier with these bulbs than with the H7 halogens. The VW's DRL circuit just turns on the low beam bulbs, and these work fine for that.
Suggestions to manufacturer: The igniter-to-bulb cables need to be about 3 inches longer. The ones that came with the kit are just barely long enough to reach the bulbs when the headlamp housing covers are open. This puts a lot of stress on the bulb connector while you're trying to wiggle the housing cover into place.
After some modifications for bulb mounting, these Moris rocks. Here's my analysis and end results of the H7 Elite setup:
1. The bulbs are "thicker" than any other of the setups I installedd. And it shows bright as ..... ,even for the 35w setup. It literally show like the 55w knock-outs that I had before if not brighter.
2. Wiring harness: these are professionally constructed, ensuring the current to reach the bulbs.
3 Ballasts and SAC: they ensure the correct "wattage" for the fact of the "Low Beam" error to not appear
End result: Morimoto Elite are top notch and worth every penny given. The CSR (Customer Rep) know what I want and need, not to mention he's from where I was born and raised (similarly close, ECHS INDIANS). i am convinced that I will visit here more for other products for other project (HALOS WITH TURNING SIGNAL FUNCTION). Thank you TRS, you have helped me to solve an issue that I have been dealing with for at least 3 years.
Installed a 35w 5500k hid kit with the canbus wire harness. Looks great, easy install. Big upgrade over the stock halogens.
The Morimoto H7 Elite kit is top quality. Harness connectors are nice and connections are secure. Very clean professional kit. Highly recommend.
These HID System are so amazing! I was so close to buying DDM tuning again after my HID from DDM finally died 5 years from now but I didnt like the quality and vision. So I give TRS a shot. MAAAAN these systems are worth a buy. I'll buy another one for my fiance's xB and future refers.
2011 bmw 528i. I purchased a kit from another source a while ago, it was cheaper but figured how bad can it be. Turned out that it refused to work even with the anti-flicker. I learned a lesson, go with the best. My H7 kit with canbus works flawlessly from the moment of install, no issues, no errors, no flicker.
!!***Warning***!! I have a "2013 Hyundai Sonata Limited" and the H7 HID bulb out of the box will not fit properly in the 2011-2014 sonata headlight housing!! If you do nothing, the "return wire" bar will cause a shadow on the roadway. YOU WILL NEED to modify the H7 bulb and create your own tab. After the mod, the return wire bar will be facing down in the same direction as the new modified tab. Out of the box, the return wire is facing up and the oem tab is facing down.
I've been with TRS since early 2014 with many different vehicles and nothing but good experiences ever since. I have tried (old verision)
>>4300k (white with yellow hue)<<
>>5000k (white and in some cases white/blue depending on the road type)<<
>>6000k (blue with white hue)<<
and found out the 5000k was the best fit for me. So I bought 5k for my low beam and fog light. 5k was an amazing white color and truly overpowered other cars headlights on the road. It was like they didn't even have lights on. Long story but I had to get new low beam bulbs; however, the bulbs are now 5500k. When I installed the bulbs, the color was very green-ish. I was told the 5500k bulbs need to break in (40-60 hours) and the green will go away however because of the greenish/white color low beam and white fog light. I just bought 5500k fog lights and they match up amazingly!! There still is a green hue but I hate the yellow color of OEM and even the 4300k. So the 5500k is the still the best option for me. I did try a competitor but lets just say it did't go very well. I don't know what I ever doubted TRS!! I came crawling back! Haha. :-)
Very happy with the quality and ease of installation of the H7 Morimoto Elite HID system on my 2009 Mercedes C-Class C180 Kompressor.
I carried out a self installation which took about 1 hours, and although I'm not used to carrying out DIY stuff on a regular basis, I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to install. The hardest part was actually getting out my existing bulbs due to the clamps which hold down the low beam projector bulbs. I found a Youtube video to help me out what that.
The installation itself included setting up the wiring, installing the bulbs, placing and securing the blasts, and connecting them all together. The instructions were pretty straight forward.
The system I purchased and installed was the 35W version with 5500K bulbs. The color appears to be true white as indicated and provides a definitive sharpness and clarity on the road through the crystal white color output. The light output is not over powering, yet it disperses evenly and far enough through the projector lamp. Also, on-coming traffic does not seem to be affected as I have not had anyone flash their high beams yet. Rather, the lights seem to turn a lot of heads on the road, and once in a while a car will slow down to get a better look :)
When I first tested the system I noticed a slight flickering in the light output and decided to add the Canbus which was supplied with the system. This stopped the flickering all together.
I have received No Errors on my dash either with or without the Canbus. The system has been running on my Mercedes for about 5 weeks now and have no issues to report :)
Everyone at TRS always does their best to make sure your happy. I picked this up after a bad set was replaced and had some issues with a relay. TRS made sure to do whatever they could to help resolve the issue. The best! U wont go wrong with these but I think some folks might want it to be a tad brighter, go with the 55w but careful dont blind folks! ;] Happy new year 2016
Just finished the install on my 2011 Chevy Cruze and what a difference! The H7 HIDs completely changed the look of the car. These bulbs are bright and look great!!
Installing this kit was super easy!
