I have a 2013 XL and I ordered Morimoto HIDs in the H11B variety. The OEM halogen bulbs had prongs built in to the side of the base, and when the bulb was rotated into position, the prongs slid into the connector which was attached to the projector base. Being kind of a n00b to this, I searched around everywhere, but could find no mention of this mystery connector. I watched tons of Santa Fe HID install videos on YouTube, and nobody ever mentioned this strange sideways plug. I placed a couple calls to the Retrofit Source where I purchased them, and they told me I would have to order a special "H11B" adapter, but they didn't sell it. I searched all over Amazon and eBay and came up with nothing. After spending way too much time searching online, I decided to head out to the garage and just figure something out. As those of you who have done this already know, I had to remove the pins from the harness and insert them into the headlight connector, and that did the trick. Originally I ordered the HD relay from TRS, but no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't figure out a way to route everything cleanly, because I always came up too short. I called TRS back and asked about the canbus adapters, and they strongly advised against them. Against their suggestion, I ordered them anyway, and they seem to be working great. I have 6500k bulbs in there and they match the eyebrow pretty well, but I think 5500 might have been a closer match. I just wanted to post this up here to help out any future n00bs that come along and try to find answers to the questions I had.
