Hi,

I want to buy the ( 9005 morimoto elite 35w HID system ) for my 2013 Rav4 LE.

Do I need to install the HD relay harness with this HID system ?

Is it necessary or just an option ?

Thank you.

Think I would send them an email just to be sure.
Assuming it's just an option, as a lot of European cars need them.

Using the Relay harness is a very good idea, cause it uses your Battery as a power source, mush reliable system using the relay harness in my opinion..... I use xenondepot.com HID system on my Lexus and its been bulletproof for 6+ years, both Low-beams and Fog lights!!

Xenondepot is the only place I buy head/fog lights from. Great customer service and the quality of their products are next to none.
They also have a KILLER sale on their Xtreme LED kits.
Some are $100 off right now

Thank you for your reply ,,,, Do you use relay harness with HID system in your Lexus ?

The ( 9005 HID KIT | XTREME HID) from xenondepot.com is a very nice option to my Rav4.

Also they ask me if I want to add CANbus to the HID Kit ? Do I really need it ?

I just got a response to my question about install the HD relay harness with 9005 morimoto elite 35w HID system from theretrofitsource.com help team.

( Thanks for your reply! Its not absolutely mandatory however we do recommend using the HD relay with the HID kit. Not only does it make sure that you get proper voltage to the ballasts but it also adds an extra safeguard in the system. So if something happens it would just damage the relay harness at most instead of something on the vehcile.

Regards! ).

Now I'm confused between xenondepot.com and theretrofitsource.com !!!

Both have excellent HID systems Kit and around 3 to 5 years of warranty.

9005 morimoto elite 35w HID system - 5 years warranty.

9005 HID KIT | XTREME HID system - 3 years warranty.

Help me choosing from your experience... :D

Like stated before, the customer service is TOP notch with xenondepot--and I have been running there kits for years with only one bulb failure and they promptly sent me a replacement and that has been it! I have a couple friends and a co-worker that run their Kits and love them. Get the 5K bulbs as they are the Whitest and put out crazy light and Im betting a better beam pattern/spread of light than the LED's--

Yes I do use the Extreme Kit with the Relay harness in my GX470 (it comes in the Extreme kit).

I also just ordered a 9005 Extreme kit for the 2015 Rav-4 and will be installing probably tuesday, Ill have a write up and pictures comparing output of the Stock, Lasfit LED, and then the Extreme kit :)

Waiting for your review :smile

Also it would be great if you could make a video explaining the installation of your new 9005 Extreme kit :D

Currently I will make a purchase order for (9005 Extreme kit + H16 Xtreme LED Fog Light Bulbs + PHILIPS LED for my interior light ) and send them to my residence in Qatar :smile
