Morimoto: Has always been our go-to-guys when it came to HID, and when they released their line of LED products, we had our doubts. Performance left a little to be desired compared to some of the more refined models on the market. BUT (and thats a big BUT) that has since changed with the much more mature, refined second generations of each model they offer. While in all-honesty Morimoto didn't exactly nail it the first time around on the LED bulbs, what we have from them today is about as modern as it gets and much more in-line with the quality and performance we've all come to expect from the brand.
So What's new with Version Two? Basically everything except the name, really. Now using their "Hybrid LED" system that was made famous by the XSB 2.0 halos and strips, the new XB T10's are A) super reliable (we've yet to see one fail), B) have an excellent 5500K white or Golden Amber color, and C) much better consistency due to the updated phosphor coating they're putting on them now. We dig it!
Featured: In the October 2015 issue of DSport Magazine alongside LED offerings from Philips and Osram. Morimoto is the benchmark in aftermarket automotive lighting!
Modern Touch:The XB LED bulbs produce plenty of light to improve illumination while adding a modern touch to your vehicle's lighting. They illuminate perfectly evenly, not spotty like the surface mounted chips found on other bulbs. Just don't stare if you care to see anything after that!
Construction: The bulb is constructed with a white fiberglass PCB sandwiched between two very unique white-faced Hybrid LED panels. The positive/ground contacts are perforated and dipped in gold copper to improve contact across both sides of the base.
Everywhere: From interior lighting to city and marker lights, the T10/194 fitment is easily one of the most common sizes used in the automotive industry. Chances are, there's a place for these bulbs on your car, especially now that they're available in both white and amber!
Can-bus: The XB LED bulbs are can-bus friendly and should not hyper flash or cause any "lamp out" errors in MOST applications. If however your vehicle requires more resistance, we recommend using the Morimoto HD Load Resistors

I just installed these bulbs as a replacement for my halogen license plate lights on a 2013 Touareg. They look absolutely perfect! No bulb out warnings and I love the crisp white light without going too blue. Strongly considering upgrading my interior lights using these bulbs to match.
I ordered this bulb to put into the nose light of my motorcycle so it would match the headlights and the new switchbacks. Once installed it was very bright and the color was perfect as expected. However, When I was taking the bulb from the package, the coating that is over the LED was somewhat melted to the back of the packaging and came off when I removed the bulb for install. I'm guessing it's from the heat of being in the truck during shipment. This is one thing that needs to be addressed in design. Other than that the bulb was perfect. I can still use it since it is in a sealed factory housing so I'm not too worried about it. And since I only need one at a time, I have a spare if anything happens. Now if they both fail within a short time, I'll be looking into a warranty exchange. lol
Ordered both white and amber and they have Awesome light output. The white is quite a bit brighter than amber but that is to be expected. Would definitely reccomend
I use these on my g35 coupe on the side markers and at night I can see they really reflect a good amount of light even onto the car next to me which is good but I JUST WISH THESE WERE ALSO AVAILABLE IN THE 6000K COLOR RATING AND NOT JUST THESE 5500K. The slight color rating throws off the other led's I have and I would buy new ones if you make them in a 6000K.
First off I want to say I've been a customer for a few years now. And had nothing but good experience with Trs products and their services. When ever I had a issue or a question they resolve my concerns promptly.
I purchase the Morimoto XB amber LED to replace my old junk LED for my side markers. The Morimoto XB LED's are very bright and illuminates evenly. I'm very satisfied with my purchase. Thank you Trs and keep up the good work.
upgraded the interior bulbs front/back in a '12 F150 - total night/day transformation. (almost too bright, but I like it) recommend!
I love these T10s. For some reason, Audi used T10s for nearly all of the interior lights in my S3. I replaced them with the Morimoto T10s, and bright EVEN light. I had these in my jeep and a few other cars and have loved them in every one. Many LEDs are spotty and don't light evenly or utilize the factory reflectors, but the smooth output style from these bulbs are fantastic. A++++ Thank you TRS!
I got these little guys to replace the dim halogen bulbs in my 2005 C230. They complimented the Mini H1's nicely. They are just slightly blue. But still looked pretty nice.
These little flat leds are great. They emit a very balanced white light. Actually mimics a halogen lights radiation pattern very well. The brightness is perfect for my license plate illumination. Not too bright, no blue tint and really makes the colors pop on the plate. $20 well spent.
Bought these to replace my licence plate blubs but they were more on the warmer side so I used them in my trunk. They do seem brighter than the slyvania zevo bulbs. These would have matched my 4300k hids I used to have on my 2014 when I had it. The Morimoto XB festoon bulbs were perfect fit my wrx.
