The projector looks are nice but true HIDs are expensive as OEM or later add-on and very expensive to repair. They would fall under the 3/36 warranty and would blow the day after expiration. Could be $1000 to repair.Only the Europe models get those types of lights. They are not coming to the U.S. I don't know if it is because of cost or DOT standards... Either way could point to them being HID's.
