You know, the HID's might look cool, but if your running the 6" HF lights and 100w bulbs, I just don't know how much brighter I could ask for. I think the HID's would, should, draw less power, but they are bright as hell now. While I've been considering the HID upgrade, with my 6" er's tied into my high beams, if I flash them, how would the HID balasts hold up? I switch them on and off allot on the drive to and from work, which is either at 5am in the morning or 6pm at night. Not sure how the HID's are going to hold up constantly being switched on and off. Sometimes 20 times in my 45 mile ride home. I'm still debating!
