Good quality 55w HID kit will run you around $200 with shipping. People like the morimoto or retro solutions (digital) products. If you are looking for a full retro fit (replacing factory projector or reflector with an HID projector lense) then you could be spending anywhere from $500-$1300 depending on the route you choose to take. Some will order new headlights ($700) and pay someone to do them (Jeremy from the retro shop). Others can send their lights into Jermy and have him do it, costs around $650. You could do it all yourself which requires baking the headlights open, installing a new projector lense, sealing it back up etc. Those are your options for good quality. Just the kit your looking at $150-$200, full retrofit... well you could get pretty price if you wanted (Halo's, new LED's, painting etc).

I installed the retro 55w, 6000K in my lows. Wanted to leave my highs alone for flash to pass. Look at my other posts about my install - I have a picture posted that shows the difference between the stock lights and the HID. I took it when I had one done. Not the best picture but it certainly gets the point across.
I've been very, very happy with the switch.
I helped my dad do the same thing in his 3500 a couple of years ago, and he's still very happy with his. Loves them.

Is everyone getting their kit from Retro Solutions? Is there any difference between them and DDM? I'll spend the extra at RS but only if the extra is for better quality.
