While I can understand why you may believe this is an unjustifiable upgrade, I do not agree that your comments are justifiable and appropriate for the content of the OPs discussion. How each of us spends our money is completely up to us. Yes it is a costly upgrade, however it's an upgrade that I'm glad I did as the in-person outcome extends well past what pictures can gather. So yes, you may state that comparisons via picture are inadequate, but you'd also say the same if we didn't supply any pictures, correct?
So obviously you just cannot be happy. I could add commentary here about the upgrades you've made to your personal truck but I will refrain.
I will say this, the upgrade is worth the money if you're brave enough to make the commitment and stick with it. I'm not saying it's for everyone, that's obvious as you've so diligently attempted to force down my throat, yet this is a performance upgrade...much like a tuner.
For example...a stock truck is perfectly capable...right? Just like stock halogens. It gets the job done.
OEM HIDs are like canned tunes. They are drastically better than halogens, just like the tune strategy trumps the stock tune.
A projector swap is like stepping from canned tunes to custom tunes. The difference is there but it's not the same percentage increase as stock to canned, or halogen to OEM HID.
Lastly, it is MY money that I work my extremely diligently to obtain. I work to afford my lifestyle and I'm 100% content with it in that regard. I'm sure you'll complain that my purchase of a Platinum trim is not justifiable as well, as you cannot agree with anyone spending any money over and above what you would spend yourself. I'll leave you with this...your negativity is unwarranted and not necessary especially here. Thanks for your input though as it truly added an immense about of value to this thread.
So I've now pissed away my money (your words) and my time with your efforts to tell us all that this upgrade is unnecessary. Thanks again for your participation. Would you like to also now start a discussion about my Ecoboost and how it was a worthless waste of my money? It has about as much bearing and sense on this topic as your previous comments.
