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]

Hahaha, I wasted my money on an inferior kit prior to buying Mori’s 35w 4500k HID low and high beam motorcycle kit. There really isn’t a need to shop around for the best quality, best priced, best warranty HID kit if you’ve landed here at TRS checkin’ out these kits. From the bulbs construction, ignitor, ballast, and other pieces it immediately oozes quality.
One shocking thing I must point out about Mori HID bulbs which I wasn’t expecting, it has a defined cut off as if you had a projector.
Let me explain...my low beam is H7 reflector headlight and my high is H9 projector. HIDs in general are optimized for projectors. In contrast, I recall my buddy’s 2004 Subi STI OEM HID low beams was engineered for a reflector housing - doesn’t have a sharp cutoff like HID projectors.
After installing, my low looks like it turned into a projector because of its pronounced cutoff. I had to bounce my bikes front suspension several times because I really couldn’t believe what I was seeing, simply astounding! Remember and be sure to mount the HID bulb wire side down for the best results, if the bulb housing lets you.
I even bought a Mori HID Elite H7 low beam kit for one of my cars - no regrets whatsoever on both purchases.
This plug and play kit took less than an hour to install and the difference in light output and visibility is incredible!
I've installed MANY HID systems in the past and have always dealt with lower quality systems, some DOA and others with problems surfacing months down the road. What I can say thus far regarding the Morimoto Elite package is that the build quality of these are far... FAR beyond anything I've purchased in the past. They work excellent and came with everything I expected. As for TheRetrofitSource, you'll not find this level of customer service ANYWHERE else. I definitely recommend.
Having tried a vast number of hid kits i have to admit that it 's the first time i find something that is almost identical to halogen bulb fitment!
My biggest concern was the glare produced by every hid kit i had tried since this day.
Apart from morimoto quality which is great and is evident on hid bulbs,the beam pattern is almost identical with the halogen bulb with very little to zero glare above cut off! And this is achived WITHOUT any retrofit, but by simply changing the halogen bulb with the hid one!!!!!
Installed on an 07 Subaru Legacy GT wagon
I love this HID kit, the quality of all the components is top quality. I would expect something like this with braided wires and nice plugs to be sold for over $300.00.
I bought the 6500 H7 kit. They are pretty blue, but not too bad. They hold true to the picture they have shown comparing the colors. Night visibility is intense! My Hi Beams get drowned out from how awesome these HID's are. Even with the 35w ballasts they are easily twice as bright as my old HID kit that died on me.
Only downside is the negative battery connector to the relay didn't reach easily on my Legacy. I could of mounted the relay in a different spot to help it but where i mounted was my best idea on the Relay.
But, the quality of this HID kit is worth it all, I would definately buy again!
Vehicle: VW Golf Mk.4
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.
