there are single LED's that put out 3000 lumens each. thats as much as an HID headlight.
yes you will pay more, but A) they have a lifespan on 50-100,000 hours, significantly lower power usage, less heat, shock resistant, etc etc..
high power LED is still relatively new so the cost will come down eventually.
