If you're looking to upgrade your car's lighting system, an HID kit is definitely worth considering. HID stands for High-Intensity Discharge and these bulbs are known for their bright, white light that provides better visibility in low-light conditions. Many drivers prefer HID bulbs over traditional halogen bulbs because they offer a brighter and more efficient lighting solution. The strengths of an HID kit come from its xenon gas-filled bulbs and the ballast, which regulates the electrical current that runs through the bulbs without overloading them. These bulbs come in various color temperatures from cool white to warm yellow and give a high-end look to any car. There are many great HID kits available today, but we've rounded up the 25 best based on their quality, durability, and performance.

Pairing a set of HID bulbs with a slim ballast usually results the highest performance in lighting, as well thereby enabling better visibility while driving in the darkness. With a variety of options of HID bulbs available in the market, choosing the right one for your vehicle could be difficult. Hence, we have selected the best HID kits for you to choose from. Our top-rated HID kits come in different wattage capacities ranging from 35 to 55 watts, depending on your preference. They're easy to install and come as a pair of bulbs with a reliable ballast.

The benefits of upgrading to HID headlights are numerous. These bulbs are more efficient, meaning that they use less power from your car's battery while providing up to three times the brightness of a standard halogen bulb. Unlike LED lights, HID headlights provide a more focused beam of light, resulting in better visibility and a safer driving experience. Moreover, HID bulbs have a longer lifespan, with some lasting as long as 10 years, making them a desirable option for those seeking a long-term solution.

In conclusion, HID kits are worth the investment for drivers who want improved nighttime visibility, a sleeker look for their cars, and a long-lasting solution for their lighting needs.

High Intensity Discharge (HID) kits are now a common feature in most modern vehicles. However, the history of these kits dates back to the early 1990s when they were first introduced into the automobile industry. So, let's take a journey into the past to understand how these kits came to be.

The 1990s

In the early 1990s, HID kits were introduced as an alternative to the conventional halogen headlights. During this period, companies like Philips and Osram began experimenting with HID systems, trying to create a more efficient lighting system than the conventional headlights. These early HID kits were expensive and only available as original equipment in luxury cars like BMW and Mercedes-Benz.

The 2000s

As the years went by, HID kits became more affordable, and more and more manufacturers started adopting the technology. In the early 2000s, companies like Morimoto, Retrofit Source, and Hylux began to pop up to specifically cater to the aftermarket HID kit market. They produced ballasts, bulbs, and wiring harnesses, which allowed car owners to upgrade their headlights to HID systems. This opened up HID kits to a broader and more diverse demographic.

The 2010s

In the 2010s, the popularity of HID kits continued to grow. The kits became even more affordable, and an increasing variety of styles became available. The newer models included different color temperatures, such as 6000K and 8000K, and bi-xenon HID kits, which provide both high and low beam functionality in one kit.

Along with the improvements in the HID kit technology, there were also legislative changes regarding their use. The US government passed a law requiring new cars to have advanced lighting systems, which included HID lights and soon took effect in most states. Other countries such as the UK, which allowed aftermarket HID kits as well, had restrictions placed on the strength and colour temperature of the lights in kit approval.

The 2020s

In today's world, HID kits are becoming less common with LED headlights taking over. They are still an excellent choice for car enthusiasts who want to customize their headlight look, with different hue options on the market. No matter the kind of car owner, an affordable, reliable HID kit offers safe night-driving and can give any vehicle a modern look.

In conclusion, the history of HID kits has been remarkable. From the early days of expensive and exclusive luxury cars through the aftermarket development and availability, HID kits have become a popular and affordable upgrade for virtually anyone. They have improved visibility, curb appeal, and safety and have come a long way since their inception over 30 years ago.

As an Automotive expert in the Lights, Bulbs & Indicators niche, I can easily detect key decision-making factors in the product description of the Morimoto Elite HID System. The factors that stand out the most are the ballasts, the bulbs, and the quality of the system. Let's take a closer look:

1. Ballasts: The Morimoto Elite HID System comes with a pair of XB35 (35W) or XB55 (50W) ballasts depending on the customer's product selection. Ballasts are a crucial component of an HID system as they regulate the electrical current that is sent to the bulbs. The quality of ballasts directly affects the brightness and lifespan of the bulbs. Higher quality ballasts like the XB35 and XB55 are more efficient at converting electrical energy into light energy, resulting in brighter and longer-lasting bulbs. Therefore, the performance of the ballasts is an essential factor to consider when choosing an HID system.

2. Bulbs: The Morimoto Elite HID System also comes with a pair of high-quality Morimoto bulbs. The type of bulbs used in an HID system determines the color temperature and brightness of the light. The Morimoto bulbs are known for their excellent color rendering and are available in various temperatures ranging from 3000K to 6500K. The bulbs also have a long lifespan, lasting up to 2500 hours of continuous operation. A high-quality bulb is essential to ensure that the light produced by the HID system is bright, long-lasting, and has good color rendering capabilities.

3. Quality of system: Finally, the quality of the Morimoto Elite HID System is a crucial factor to consider. The system is made with high-quality materials and components that ensure its reliability and durability. The Morimoto Elite HID System is known for its easy installation and maintenance, which makes it an ideal choice for automotive enthusiasts who want a high-performance HID system that is easy to use and maintain. A high-quality HID system is essential to ensure that the vehicle's lights are bright, reliable, and safe to use.

To summarize, the ballasts, bulbs, and quality of the system are the key decision-making factors in choosing an HID system like the Morimoto Elite HID System. The quality of these factors ultimately determines the performance of the HID system, and it is essential to choose an HID system like the Morimoto Elite HID System, which has high-quality ballasts, bulbs, and components.

FAQ About hid kits

Q: Who makes the best HID kit?

There are many brands that offer high-quality HID kits such as Morimoto, Philips, and ZKW. However, the "best" HID kit ultimately depends on the specific needs and preferences of the user.

Q: What is the brightest HID kit?

Generally speaking, a 55W HID kit will be brighter than a 35W HID kit. However, it's important to note that brighter isn't always better. A 55W kit may be too bright and cause glare, which can be unsafe for other drivers on the road.

Q: Which HID kit is better, 35W or 55W?

It depends on what you're looking for. A 35W kit is generally sufficient for most drivers and is more energy-efficient. On the other hand, a 55W kit will be brighter but may cause glare and consume more energy.

Q: What HID color is best for visibility?

The best HID color for visibility is 4300K, which is the closest to natural daylight. This color offers excellent visibility while still being easy on the eyes.

Q: How do I choose an HID conversion kit?

When choosing an HID conversion kit, consider your specific needs and preferences. Factors to consider include bulb color temperature, ballast wattage, and budget. It's also important to ensure that the kit is compatible with your vehicle's make and model. Researching reviews and customer feedback can also be helpful in finding the right kit.
