Don't mean to start a 'brush-fire', but.... many have 'weighed in' with various opinions on both the advantages and disadvantages of HID updates that I for one am now totally confused. Reports have the advantages of HID upgrades as offering brighter lights, but others point out the serious drawback of unfocused light that may actually be hazardous to oncoming traffic as well as those in front of you. Some opine that retrofitting to projectors is really the best and only way to achieve what we're looking for: brighter, focused lights BUT at what cost? Unless you're willing to part with something in the neighborhood of $300 (and thats only of you're ready to remove your headlight assembly, take it apart and reassemble it). Having it done for you by a local retrofitter brings the cost to something like $500 or more. If all of that is accurate and not just hobbyist/enthusiast nit-picking, I'm going to just 'sit this one out'. Would like to hear from those out there with real-world, 'been-there, done-that' experience to help resolve this confusion. Maybe we can distill the rhetoric down to factual, applicable knowledge. Fire away!
