I'm going to have to take back what I said earlier in this thread. I finally got mine from the dealer today, 2017 with halogen projectors and took it for a 45 min night ride a few hours ago. First let me say I'm almost 50 and I have freaking horrendous night vision which was a real problem with the poor low beams on my last ride because 75% of my driving is on unlit rural 2 lane highways with plenty of deer crossings. Hi beams are fine either way, it's low beams I need to be good because of fairly frequent oncoming traffic.
With that in mind I'm very happy with these headlights and I don't know how you could get much worse than my vision without being revoked from driving lol. And with that being great as it is, throwing the fogs on just makes it even better! So, I'm not going to need any headlight HiD mods, brighter bulbs, etc at all. I know a lot of people just want HiD because it's a trend now and that's totally fine, but if someone with MY vision is finding the factory projectors good, then I'm going to have to chalk this debate up to a want vs need thing.
