No issues with the kit itself. The one issue i did run into was the D2S plug that kit comes with is huge and doesn't fit with the headlight worth a damn. Insert me getting a little pissed off and I snapped the locking nibs on one of the bulbs. Opps.....
One of these days I'm going order Osram bulbs, and the straight D2S plugs, new ignitors and extension wires so I can stuff the ballasts in the bumper.


I'd recommend this kit to anyone.

I know this is an old post but most of morimoto bulbs break easily, the oem quality never breaks. NEVER.

My first retrofit. Unfortunately i have to use halogen bulbs and the light output is bad - so i will modify them to other projectors soon.


what do you think? stay with the current shrouds or change to e46-r style?


e46-r shrouds

Why do you have to use halogen bulbs? Did you do a retrofit with halogen projectors? Seems like a waste of time.

Necro post
Anyway just picked up an accord as my daily driver for cheap gas and since I retro every vehicle I own it had to get the upgrade as well.

Parts list:
Projectors - Morimoto D2S 4.0 (shield dropped slightly for better hotspot)
Bulbs - Osram D2S CBI
Ballasts - Hella Gen3 (boosted to 47watts)
Switchback - Morimoto XSB 3.0 18"
Harness - Morimoto 9006 HD relay (relays replaced with Hella SPDT 7794311)

I used Depo stock replacements to build in since the stock lenses were beyond restoring.

I hope to contribute in here soon. Been doing a lot of research and just snagged up S2000 projectors on the cheap!
