LOL agree with foose

if you have the budget go for it

headlights do wonders to change the look of cars from the front at night and even during the day

I have noticed another benefit as well. We used to get brighted every time we were driving at night with the other cars we owned because we had to adjust the headlights up to get good viewing when dimmed. I have yet to be brighted with the LED lights.

I also had the wife follow behind me one night and they are bright, but they are not obnoxious like an HID kit. But they are so much more clear and they seem to throw the light further than any other light setup I have seen.

Yes. I noticed road signs and construction cone reflectors don't blind you either.

It seems to highlight the wording better than HID or high output systems I have had in the past, but it doesn't glare like the other systems.

I also noticed it is easier to see deer on the roadside. They are more defined against the background. That alone is worth the price!

We only get to enjoy 50% of the value of the LED Lighting Package in the US models

Due to an antiquated DOT regulation, the most important feature of the LED Lighting Package is not available in the US. If you can do the coding you can restore it, though. The system uses the camera embedded in the rear view mirror to create light tunnels and manage high beams in very elegant and dynamic manner. Look it up in You Tube.

The throw-distance of the LED package is farther than the Xenon's and the illumination to each side seems wider as well. The interior lighting that comes with the package is a nice luxury. Aesthetically, they look cool, which will have more or less value to different owners.

5th option from the bottom shows you have Xenon lights instead of LED.
