Heavy Hitter: As the very first aftermarket retrofitting part Morimoto offered, the ZKW-R continues to be a hot seller. It defines the term "performance gain" on projectors such as the popular Acura TL bi-xenons.
Replica+ Easily matching & beating the OEM 3" ZKW lens from the BMW E46 that we benchmarked for this version, the optical clarity of the ZKW-R lenses is unsurpassed. Years ago, retrofitters used to pay $200 for a set of those stock lenses.
E46 Spec: The ZKW-R lenses work perfectly on Bosch Bi-xenon (AKA "E46") projectors by selecting the non-Hella Spec option.
No Brainer: Adding a set of clear lenses to your OEM headlights or projector retrofit with OEM projectors should be a "no-brainer". Not only are they an inexpensive upgrade, but they allow the projectors to perform to their maximum potential in every aspect.
Size Matters: When picking out a pair of clear lenses, it's not about which model is "best" - it's about compatibility. The diameter AND focus height of the lens are both very important. Learn all about fitment and the benefits of clear lenses Here

got these and installed and with minor adjustments i was able to get a sick cut off and now i love my headlights on my 06' TL even more than the day i got it. great buy!!
I bought these to replace the lenses on a 2005 Acura TL. They made a huge difference in the cutoff and clarity. I bought the "b-stock" and they were nearly perfect. A definite upgrade over the stock lenses.
Wow, you want to talk about Great customer service. Matt who i believe is the owner of TRS went above and beyond to resolve a problem with an order which was due to some miscommunication between both ends. I honestly was upset initially due to the error in receiving the wrong part and I'm sure I was not the easiest person to talk to at the time on the phone, but when Charlie got Matt on the phone, he put me at ease and not only did he resolve the problem quickly, but he stayed on the phone with me until everything came through including pictures, the tracking information for the replacement parts and he expedited the shipping so I wouldn't have to worry about not having my vehicle offline and the part arrived in two days. In addition he told me to keep the other part free of charge. I really appreciate the way TRS handled the matter and will recommend these guys to anyone looking for their products. Hands done great customer service and that is why they guys have been around for a long time.
The lens are great quality, and will vastly improve the performance and I could not be happier
Amazing difference. Installed these on my 2010 Mercedes C300 and it sharpened my HID cutoff, gave me more cutoff color, and increased my beam intensity. Highly recommend them. U wont be disappointed.
Replaced my stock lens with this ZKW-r for my '04 Acura TL, and the cutoff was razor blade sharp. I also have a deep purple/blue color band at the top of the beam which can be seen on a garage door. The output combined with the Morimoto 3 5000K bulbs gives my car a distinct look at night that's clean and crisp and sets it apart from the other guys running 10000K bulbs.
Really amazing with the ZKW-R clear lens!!! I installed a pair of them to my Acura TL projectors, the output is brighter 30%, wider 20% and the cut-off line is very sharp. Besides that, I think you should install a pair of Morimoto 5Five 50W ballasts and Morimoto 50W xenon bulbs as well, your output is always on the top!!!
Life brought back into my BMW AL headlights!! No more blurry brown cutoff. I can't believe I waited 3 years to do this swap and it was so easy. Took about two hours for both headlights and the results are amazing. Paired with new Philips bulbs I have a nice crisp and defined cutoff. This is a must do!
I bought from TRS, the Mormimoto mini bixenon projectors. At all times I had a great support from TRS related to technical questions and shipping. I installed the projectors on a Corolla 09 XRS headlight model, the projectors fitted excellent through the orifice of the halogen lamp, no need to cut or break the original reflector. The output is excellent, as well as the cut off. Nothing to envy a BMW project headlight!
I got these for my 04 TL. I am running these ZWK-R with the stock OEM 4300K osram bulbs.
And all I gota say is "AMAZING" I didn't realize how much difference it would make to just swap the lenses out. And the best part was that they are affordable! I have to say its one of my favorite mod! Even though my bulbs are about 5 years old, it still outputs brilliant light.
I tried 6000K bulbs, but those just purely weaksauce. Get these, invest a lil time prying your lights apart. Install the lenses and seal it back up. Set your self apart and start Seeing clearly at night.
I have used the ZKW-R lenses on 3 different TL projects and all turned out fantastic, tons of color and very sharp.
I have also turned my attention to the ever forgotten BOSCH E46 units that have the reputation of being the worst bi-xenon ever created. The results are simply mind blowing. All I did was dropped in the ZKW-R Lens, removed the RV shield, and simply dialed in the cutoff adjuster screw to get an ultra sharp cutoff and insane amounts of intense purple and blue colors...
The E46 is by far the easiest projector to tune with unbelievable results and they can be had for very reasonable prices. I have used both the value and the premium lenses both with the same results, in fact you cant really tell the difference between the two.
