Re: HID for MOST bright??
I have had an 04 X5, 08 IS250 with OEM projectors, and 03 Maxima, and 06 altima with OEM HID reflectors. All were great on the road. The aftermarket HID's for my jeep IMO are brighter than the IS, Maxima, and Altima. Irf and I have been in a parking lot with a jeep with projector HID's, aftermarket HID's, and my GF IS with oem HID. Like everyone said the light is controled better and projects further. But the jeeps with the aftermarket hid's lit up the lot ground. My X5 had hid lighs that was the same bulb as the lows. I believe there was a mechanist that opened for the light to project up. IMO the X5 was the best.
