D3S: MORIMOTO XB HID
*NOTE* MORIMOTO HAS MADE CHANGES IN THEIR HID BULBS IN 2020. 4500/5500/6500K BULBS MAY SHIP AS 4000/5000/6000K BULBS. PLEASE CONTACT US TO CONFIRM TEMPERATURE OPTIONS.
No Compromise: Looking for the absolute best performing D3S HID setup? The Morimoto XB HID bulbs will deliver. Compatible with 35W and 55W ballasts: The XB's will produce more lumens, last longer, project farther, and look better doing it.
Luminosity: At the heart of the XB D3S bulbs is their perfectly aligned 100% Philips Quartz glass that houses a capsule from APL-USA. Using high quality halide salts from raw materials supplier Messer; the bulbs produce nearly the same luminosity (intensity) as the amazing Osram CBI bulbs at 5500K. No, you're not seeing things here, but yes you will be seeing everything at night.
Long Life: The Austrian-sourced Plansee electrodes help keep the bulbs running brighter for longer. Compared to a Philips bulb for example, that will lose 14% of it's luminosity after 200 hours of use, the XB's will lose just 17% but while burning 10% brighter.
Precise Alignment: The SymmetryStructure frame that surrounds the base of the glass capsule keeping everything properly lined up, which is extremely important from an optical standpoint. The resulting uniform distribution of light and well-defined beam limits will certainly stand out in comparison.
Reliability: Not that we recommend this for any HID bulb, but go ahead and fire it up 100 times in a row or even run it underwater for days at a time and the difference between the XB and any so called "competition" will be clear. These bulbs will even work with OEM Nissan/Infiniti (Matsushita) ballasts, which are notorious for discriminating against anything aftermarket.
Value: When it comes to aftermarket HID bulbs, the saying "you pay for what you get" has never been more appropriate, but in comparison to something like the superb Osram or Philips D3S bulbs, the bang for the buck here is absolutely unbeatable.
Compatibility: The XB bulbs are a perfect match for any OEM replacement headlamps or projector retrofits that use D2S bulbs. They will ignite reliably with all ballasts from Morimoto, Denso, Hella, Bosch, Koito and even the most picky Nissan/Infiniti ballasts from Matsushita/Panasonic!
