HID Headlights ( Standard on every Acura sold / Infiniti / Lexus )
Last time I check when people retro fit HID's in cars the TSX / S2k projectors
are pretty much the benchmark / best option out there.
Dont think because BMW didnt include them it made the price go any lower or that the HID's on the X model is an inferior quality part being used.
I agree bells and whistles are not why we drive BMW's but gouging is gouging. They built the brand and they deserve to charge what they want
and I agree with that but dont try to justify that its right.
The germans materials / fit & finish & refinement is where they shine. Dont confuse that with reliability or horsepower.
With the newer models like the F30 ( 4 Cylinder turbo ) you see big diff in what weve grown use to in a BMW that silky smooth INLINE 6..
The new ones are a step down..
This this this.. and all the crap about Kia not working in 5 years. They will prob work longer than a BMW and if they break at least its cheap to fix. Also I think an insult like I said is BMW is putting some of these options almost fully or fully there then not giving you the option without paying for an unlock code.
